I've been using an old refurbished HP with a Q6600 CPU for what seems like forever, and it was finally time to upgrade. Decided that I wanted to build my own since it's something I used to like doing way back when. My first PC had a 80286 CPU and a separate co-processor, so I've been in the hobby for a minute. But man, have things changed!
I do a lot of general computing, but also gaming and wanted to put something together that would outperform my Xbox One X if I got the itch. Originally, I put this build together with a RTX 2060 card but I use a 50" 4K HDR TV as a monitor and the 2060 just didn't get me the 4K/60 performance I was looking for. I ended up upgrading to the EVGA 2080 Super XC Ultra recently and could not be happier with how it is performing. I didn't win the lottery on the core OC, but the RAM on it has been very solid with 1250 added in MSI Afterburner (and I may try to push it further).
The Meshify C TG case is an absolute dream to build in, especially considering my last build was done back before power supply shrouds (and modular power supplies) were a thing. Absolutely love the way it looks! I ended up throwing in a total of 4 black 140mm PWM fans since the pictures were taken and did some fan curve tweaking to keep it just slightly pressure-positive while keeping the noise low.
This lives in my bedroom and tends to run overnight, so my initial urge was to keep it as dark as possible. Then I toyed with the idea of some RGB and by the time it all came together, I had added a couple of addressable strips around the edge so things show up better through the Meshify's dark tempered glass. Keeping all the RGB shades of blue makes it look nice without being so bright that it might keep me awake if the system is left on at night.
