I’ll like to share my updated computer build that I’ve been slowly expanding on since September 2020. Since this is my daily workstation, I knew this PC had to be special. My most recent upgrade was installing another PC inside my new case to create a dual system inside using both macOS & PC operating system (previous system).
I wanted to be a bit more focused, having multiple monitors was actually hurting my productivity. Adding the new system was a bit of a task, since I already had a custom water-cooled loop created. The water-cooled system which is running Windows 10 Pro, is utilizing 4 GPUs along with a 32 core processor. Having such a powerful setup with tons of fans and radiators creates a lot of noise and utilizes too much power for some of my casual tasks. Which is why I added a second PC, The Hackintosh.
The Hackintosh is the quiet side of this build, macOS is great for seamless integration with my various apple devices. I use this system for concepting, emailing, web browsing and light editing work. I tried to keep everything simple for the secondary build and it’s been working great so far.
