Description

This is a recent build i did for a client who wanted a PC for 1080p gaming on games like PU:Battlegrounds, Battlefield 1, and Call of Duty. The budget also had to include hardware/LEDs that would have a huge emphasis on Blue.

Overall it was a simple build, and I'm happy with the way it turned out. Client was blown away with the outcome.

Part Reviews

Memory

Hadn't seen many/any reviews or builds with Avexir. These sticks are exactly what I'm after and compliment this build perfectly.

Case

I believe this is an underated case that deserves more attention. Super easy to work with. Excelleent cable managment. Included case LEDs. And the front prisms and fans look amazing. Tempered glass is perfectly tinted.

Monitor

Amazing IPS panel. I've used it myself for gaming and still recomend it to clients!

Micro ATX motherboard in an ATX case? Other then that it is pretty good.

Hi, thanks for the comment! Reason for the M-ATX in an ATX? The availability of PC parts in WA isnt too great. And keeping within budget as well as looking aesthetically good, this was the best option.

+1, +1, +1. do it! If you want overkill lighting and fan effects included in a case, this is it! Super easy case to work with, and the tinted tempered glass is perfect if your hardware components are lit up as well :)

does the NZXT case fan work well or should I go for a better one?

Yeah! the fan seems great. Good airflow, and noise wasn't noticably worse once added.

Hi. I am looking to build an identical setup to you (all the same except monitor) and was wandering how easy and how long it took you to make. Also how good at running AAA titles.

Beautiful case, sleek design amazing build well done man, your a master

Thanks heaps for the feedback :) If your only going to be using it to game this will serve you just fine. Every component was easy to work with. A similar sleeved cable set similar to the above will only set you back about $40AUD, and if you are flexible with the budget even try and go for a 1070. But the build above will still be more than enough for any game at 1080p resolution.

Hey Great build, like really i love this but i just had two question. Why not just get a watercooler. And two what was your budget for this build?

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

Hi, good question. 1. The CPU is not overclockable, therefor I can't justify needing o out it under water. 2. This budget air cooler is less than half the price of any water cooler you would find.

And $2k AUD with monitor

Oh that slipped right past me, lol. I didn't notice it wasnt overclockable.

Also where did you get the custom cables from?

can you please take better photos of the inside of the case i want to know how the back of the case looks for cable managing and what the bottom psu shroud looks like in detail because i know it has a slide cover for extra radiator mounting options to the front fans of the case but you only took photos in a frontward position looking towards the back so i can't see the back side of the front area if that makes sense. or if the bottom rubber openings are big enough to cable manage the bottom of a regular atx vs ur matx

No I can't, the build was for a client a few months ago. There is plenty of room for cable management which I mention in my product review, which is handy seeing as there is already a decent amount of cables back there for the LED control, Fans, and Prisms. There is a photo of the rear of the front face. And yes, the cable opening are big enough.

cmon bro ur the first person to upload pictures of u building in this case u take 10 photo's of the same exact pose but with different lighting it doesn't help me decide if i want to buy this or not like can u actually take a quality photo of the actual insides of the case & not just the tiny matx barely occupying any space? thx

try google

Yeah im sorry, i deleted my original comment because i realized how salty i was being after spending like all weekend being indecisive researching what case to get as a final piece to order for my build but its no excuse for my crappy attitude. Anyway, i appreciate your more professional reply, in the moment i was really inbetween this case or the enthoo luxe tempered glass but after more googling and just now reading this i think i found my answer, thank you.

Haha, Understandable man. Look, the enthoo will probably be the easier of the 2 to work with. The enthoo would also have thousands of buildiers who would recommend it . In my opinion though, I'd suggest this case. You'd stick out from te crowd, still have a case of excellent quality with plenty of room to personalise.

Best of luck with your build!! :)

I found this build while looking for photos of the cooler, which I'm considering for a blue-LED-filled build myself, and had to comment and say this sort of exchange is why I love PCPP: such a supportive and respectful community! ❤️ ☮️

+1 to that! I hope this build has helped with any ideas you may have :)
