Description

Built this one for an online pal who has an affinity for the color pink. I at first thought of a pink case, but that seemed a bit garish (and I really couldn't find a good one anyway) so I decided to go white with pink lighting. Processor and graphics card were chosen to meet her gaming needs for now, while the X570 motherboard was chosen to give her an upgrade path down the line. M2 SSD was chosen to reduce clutter in the small space I had to work with. The graphics card just barely fit and required me to move the radiator fans to the front of the case and out of sight, something I wasn't happy about so I'm considering adding another LL120 fan to the top portion of the radiator on the inside for a little extra light.

Any reason you went with the RX 580 instead of a better one for the same price?

Thanks for the input! I looked around for a better deal and found one, an open box RX 5700 from Microcenter that I feel does my friend a bit more justice in terms of value.

Very clean and well thought-out build. +1

I think you've made a good choice upgrading GPU. How is it doing anyway? Many people still report issues with RX 5000 series cards due to poor drivers. How's your experience with it?

The person I made it for has reported some crashing of late, they are updating the drivers and we will just have to see how it goes.

Did the situation improved after driver updates?

So far there have been far fewer problems as updates have been released

I have a question about your AIO cpu cooler. Did you have any trouble fitting it in with the gpu? I see you left the second fan off. Did it not fit? I have a similar build (same GPU) and I was hoping to fit a 240 AIO in the same case :)

That is actually the third fan, the other 2 face the front. I had a longer card in there or I would have had a total of 4. To answer your question, you could fit the extra fan in there with the card I ended up using.

Thanks for the reply. And if that's the case I can totally make it work :D
