Description

Who We Are: Hello! We are Lotus Computer USA, an American computer company based in Central Florida. We love to build custom gaming PCs in our workshop, and we want to share some of our completed builds with this wonderful and helpful community of systems builders.

The Build: About a month ago, a professional photographer and videographer approached us to build a powerful new PC for his needs. He wanted a simple, yet eye-catching machine with the power to keep up with his high-end editing work and to play The Witcher 3. The result was one of our favorite builds in recent memory.

With a 6-core i7-6800K and 32GB of G.Skill RAM, this PC's photo editing potential definitely fulfilled our client's requests. The Noctua NH-U14S, one of our favorite coolers, was chosen to cool the CPU. The NVIDIA GTX 1070 will easily allow him to do delve into professional work and gaming sessions. His storage configuration of the Samsung 500GB SSD and the WD 1TB HDD will assure that Lightroom and the OS operate optimally, while allowing him to store the bulk of his work in the 1TB drive. Built on the awesome Asus X99-A II board and the gorgeous Phanteks Eclipse P400S TG, this PC is one of the most eye-catching builds from our workshop. The pristine tempered glass allows a clear look into the neat interior. The synced RGB lighting illuminating the interior and the front panel make this PC a pretty sight; particularly in the dark.

Overall, we hope our client will enjoy his PC just as much as we enjoyed making it. Let us know what you think of this build!

Oh my!!!! The case!!!! If only I'd known sooner that this would become a thing! It puts my normal P400 to shame. Great build though. :)

The normal P400(S) is still amazing hehe.

Thanks! It really is a beautiful case! Phanteks really delivers for a sub-$100 case offering. We'll definitely be suggesting this case to clients who aren't sure on what kind of case they want.

Just a few things I would recommend, Sleeved cables. I advise cablemods, and this will just provide a finishing look to the build. Otherwise +1 to you.

Thanks for the suggestion! We've have been dying to try out Cablemods, but unless a client requests it, we can't use them (especially since they can get pricey). Hopefully we get a client who asks about them soon :)

Haha, Noctua's color choices are certainly...unique. The RGB certainly helps to conceal the weird brown shades. Hopefully one day, they'll extend their Industrial and Redux colors to their CPU coolers.
