  • So back in november 2014 I bought and built my main desktop PC - GLaDOS and tomorrow (or soon thereafter ) she will be powered off for the final time. She's never been the fastest or most stable rig i've ever owned but she has always gotten the job done, sometime even far out stripping my expectations of her.

    GLaDOS Specs ( Base>upgrade>upgrade*)

    4.2GHz AMD FX-4170 > AMD FX-9590
    Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 > Sabertooth 990fx r3.0
    32GB Transcend 1333MHz
    AMD ATI Radeon HD 7950 3GB > Nvidia GTX 790 > Nvidia RTX 2070
    Cooler Master Elite 430 > Phanteks Enthoo Pro
    Xigmatek Aegir Air CPU Cooler > Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R
    Things of note are, in her original case under the motherboard I had engraved the name Caroline - What can I say I'm a bit of a sucker for Portal :wub:

    So tomorrow when the new parts arrive, GLaDOS will be turned off one last time and placed away in the spares cupboard

    The Replacement :

    Intel Core i7 9700K 3.6 GHz (planning on overclocking)
    Gigabyte Z390 AORUS ELITE Motherboard
    Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 32GB 3600MHz
    Nvidia RTX 2070
    Phanteks Enthoo Pro
    Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R
    I don't have a confirmed name for the new system yet there are a few im considering
    • Ziggy
    • Marvin
    • Talkie
    • Homer
    • Guilty Spark
    • Johnny
    • Robbie
    If you have any more suggestion be sure to leave them bellow. I may narrow it down a little more and do a poll on the best name and let 'temp decide haha
