Parts are coalescing into a new computer. While not necessarily novel, there are things that are moderately foreign to me. SSD boot drive, multicore processor, the build experience in general. Concerns. Fitting a massive Mugen. Power bills. Keeping the optimization together in my mind. K-series unlock, Intel likes the lower voltage, CAS latency.
However, these are all short-term issues. It works or it doesn’t, RMA or not. The real question is what is next?
