Description

First of all, after about 6 years of not really doing very much with my computer due to life being busy and just not having the time to put into it, I've recently taken it back up. This is my first full rebuild since getting back into it.

I intend to add some custom cables I'm just being picky and can't decide which ones I want.

I added a vertical GPU mount, but I didn't like it completely vertical as mounts you buy have them. So I made one instead so I can do it on an angle as I just prefer how it looks.

Wasn't very hard to do, works great and I'm very happy with how it looks.

Some of these parts were purchased simply because I got a fantastic deal.

I am absolutely amazed with how the modding community has progressed since I fell out of the loop. We used to have to do all this stuff ourselves! I was blown away browsing and choosing parts for this. Lots of fun :)

From what I can see, nice setup. We clearly need some more pics and please in a better quality than the one is up.

Absolutely. You'll have to excuse me. The existence of this site is kind of new to me. When I made this I was just learning how to use it and only had one picture at my immediate availability. Also, its not that the picture is bad quality, its actually a gif. I wasnt' sure if the animation would work or not, and it didn't :( This system is still evolving. As you can see, its also my gear room. I replaced my desk and got a new guitar and am still in the process of reworking everything so its functional for my needs and still looks good.

When I have totally completed everything (if I ever do) I will redo this listing.

You could link a YouTube video of that gif in the description.

What pc case is that? It looks like the Corsair crystal 570x

Dro1dbait 2 points 1 month ago

Perhaps try reading the parts list?

Lian-Li - PC-O11 Dynamic (White) ATX Full Tower Case

I did look at the Corsair offerings. My old case was an Air540 and I am a fan of corsair products...but something about them just threw me off. Couldn't quite put my finger on what exactly it was.

Nice build! I like that you got a $144 platinum PSU XD I guess with an expensive build comes an expensive PSU

Canzara submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Thanks! When I got into pc building back somewhere around 2000 or 2001, I was taught the most important part you buy is your PSU. NEVER skimp on your PSU. So I never do. Having said that, I got it on sale for 70 bucks off, so it didn't cost me all that much. :)

First of all Congrats on Great build. Is it ok if I use Stock cooler instead. I am not used to CFM

Canzara submitter 1 Build 1 point 11 days ago

Sure stock cooler works fine if not overclocking.
