Lunar New Year 2016 & New PC

After another long weekend of excitement and Chinese festivities, things are back to normal for me. However, my PC recently decided to finally give out on me. On the bright side, I had already ordered parts for a new PC. Overall, it has been a fairly good start to the year already. I’ve already attended GP Vancouver with puddi & D_S, and Sakura-con 2016 is just around the corner. Looks like the first half of 2016 will be a blast!


My new build was quite expensive due to the low Canadian Dollar, with prices being much higher than expected. I guess that happens when your currency has no buying power. 😦


My parts as pictured above are as follows:

CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K @ 3.5GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 TH Z170
RAM: Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800/16 2x8GB
Graphics: Zotac AMP! GTX 960 4GB
Chassis: Fractal Design Define R4 w/ Window
Storage: OCZ Vertex 460 240GB; WD Blue SSHD 4TB
Power: SilverStone Strider Gold S V2.0 750W
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

Overall, I’m quite happy with the parts I purchased and think it should be pretty future-proof.

In terms of updates, I’ll still be attending the following events for the year:

  • Sakura-con 2016 (Confirmed)
  • Magic Grand Prix Toronto 2016 (Planning)
  • Anime Revolution 2016 (Planning)
  • Anime Evolution 2016 (Planning)

That’s about it for now, we’ll have to wait and see what else 2016 has in store.
