Gaming PC...

This has been a long time coming, with incremental upgrades over the last couple years.

Work great and looks great, wish the window was tempered glass instead of acrylic.

Part Reviews

CPU

Been running this baby since 2014. Sadly my CPU's overclock potential is very poor, so I've kept to the stock speeds.

CPU Cooler

Beautiful, powerful, cool.

Motherboard

Yeah I overpaid for this on eBay, but that is what I get for wanting a z97 chipset in 2018.

Memory

Again works perfectly, had these since 2014.

Storage

Awesome, fast, and perfect for my build.

Video Card

Ironically I overpaid at the time, but this puppy remains cool and fast.

Case

One of the best cases I've ever seen, only downside is the acrylic panel is a dust magnet.

feels weird seeing discord being bright white lol, nice build just had to mention that

Slingshott 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Hey since you said that your acrylic panel is a dust magnet, try wrapping it in contact paper. Other than that, great build!

Thanks, I will try that asap!

Why does that left line coming out of the gpu look scary to me?

A cute dog + A cool PC = +1

*i have a question, does the case have a handle? if yes, would it be possible to travel around with it or is too cumbersome to travel around with?

steveheavy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Sadly it does not come with a handle, I'm not sure why the images for it include one. I think it's part of an upgrade kit maybe? Also it seems reasonable to travel with.

KR-echo13 1 point 8 months ago

honestly one of the best setups i have ever seen and would like one like this myself

CMS357 1 point 6 months ago

How was cable management in the case? I am thinking about using this in my build but i am not sure

285Tech 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Maybe an odd question but what desk is that???

mrbearbear 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

Midnightbiscuit24 1 point 9 days ago

Actually wait idk

I really like the leds are those the parts or you added those also think you couldve gotten a cheaper and better cpu just saying

Malaysaian_One -1 points 9 months ago

good build my main man. Only suggestion is to upgrade your mobo, cpu and ram to a more recent chipset like z270 with an core i7, but what you have is still pretty lit
