Description

I am an IT Tech who got tired of building my customers better systems than I had. I would say that I am a casual gamer. Not terribly into competitive multiplayer games anymore. However, I sure do love it when I can go into the settings and CRANK them all up to max and enjoy the best version of the game available.

This build has not met its match yet, although Borderlands 3 was a bit of a scare! I pieced it together over time as I saved money.

I enjoy the heck out of it.

Pros/Cons

Pros- Quiet, Case is easy to build in, MoBo Bios is intuitive and responsive, This air-cooler keeps CPU nice and cool even under load. 2080 is a beast, although many argue that it doesn't REALLY serve a purpose in the lineup. It suits me just fine.

Cons- Case airflow could be a BIT better. Small slot for intake at the front leaves front fans choked if there is any dust build-up.

Let me know what ya'll think!

Great build! All the parts are very nicely chosen. And yeah don't feel too bad about BL3 not running super well. It's still not optimized too well, especially if you're using the preset graphic settings for high or ultra. Hardware Unboxed made a good video a few weeks back on how to boost frame rates with minimal quality downgrade.

I watched that video! With everything BA I can keep around 110-130fps in 1080p.

2080 could handle 1440p

Oh it absolutely could! The First card I had in this build was a EVGA RTX2060 Black. That's when i made the monitor purchase. I'll definitely upgrade in the future.

+9000 for DBZ... - 1 for yamcha though. Joking aside, great build, looks clean!

Thanks! My wife loves Pops and I had never bought any. She bought me some DBZ and other random Pops and they fit right in the case. Great way to display them!

Looks like it will fit with about 5mm to spare between the cooler and side panel.

Additionally, I would grab and NVMe SSD instead of the Samsung SATA 2.5" drive you have listed if you find a bit more room in your budget. Better performance and fewer cables!

Other than that, looks great!

This is awesome, I was wondering if you had any reason for choosing the wireless network card that you did. Is there any reason why this one might be better than say the one from gigabyte? Just asking since I need one for my build, Thanks!

Can you adjust rgb brightness on cooler? Is this the H500i case. If not, what LED strip are you using?

The cooler RGB has a few different modes stock, but I just have it plugged into my Mobo and use an app to control the brightness and hue.

Case is listed above, although, if i remember properly, this is just the H500 model. I purchased cooler master LED RGB strips and added them to the top of the case and underneath.
