Description

I helped a friend build this pc as his introduction into the MasterRace. He saw me playing games in 4k on my pc so he had to join in the fun. This little thing looks even better in person, it's just so sleek and elegant. Makes me want to rebuild my pc in this case as well!

In all my builds I try to keep my cable management as sleek as possible, will probably add blue, grey, black extensions to the cabling in this pc at some point. My friend really wants to "pimp it out" haha

He likes the color blue, we will be adding RGBs as well as some Corsair SP120s with Blue Rigs to it soon. He is super excited about it.

Part Reviews

CPU

This is a great processor that can handle any graphics card out without bottlenecking. This is great specially for non-overclockers.

CPU Cooler

Not only is this a beautiful and elegant cooler but it actually does a great job keeping your build cool. Second time using it, love it.

Motherboard

From previous Asrock Mobos with poor layout for cable management, this one has came a long way. Cable management was a breeze with this one. Has room for 2 m.2 ssds, and ac wifi, what else could you ask for?

Storage

Great for the price, matches the build ;)

Storage

Cheap, fast, efficient.

Video Card

Beast of a card, easily overclockable to 2ghz. Temps are amazing!

Case

Beautiful sleek case, I loved working on it.

Power Supply

It's a bit difficult to get into the case but it worked perfectly.

If he only wants blue then do you want to go overkill and get ML120s instead?

ortizalexf submitter 3 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Does the fan do well for the cpu?

ortizalexf submitter 3 Builds 3 points 10 months ago

Hey man nice build ! :D

Do you play Battlefield 1 ? With that graphics card i assume you'll play at ultra settings. If you do, would you mind sharing some FPS numbers here ? ^ I'm planning on buying a pc to play BF1 at 144Hz with maybe a 7500 if it's sufficient. Originally i wanted to pair it with a 1070 but it's just below the 144 PFS mark. So this info would greatly help me on weither to purchase the 1080 or a better CPU !

Anyway, i'm looking forward to your answer and have a nice day ! :) +1

You should be fine with a 1080 man!
