BSS-D Mark IV "GARNET"
I started speccing out a build in early 2022 and pulled the trigger in February, this box is meant to be my new daily driver and gaming PC, replacing Mark III, which itself was cobbled together from parts from Neo BSS-D Mark II and Mark II-2, just to give you an idea of the nonsense I do with PCs.
Anyway, being a Gentoo box, I wanted to throw some major compile capabilities at it, in addition to using it for video encoding and streaming and other such nonsense beyond just gaming, so the build started out beefy and never really came down from that.
Status: daily driver, Windows drive (from Mark III) added November 2022.
