Description

Mostly wanted an updated rig to play some of the upcoming games that interest me - most notably CyberPunk 2077.

Ordered parts from Thanksgiving week into Christmas deal time. Everything arrived in good order but the Corsair case, which was damaged from NewEgg with a cracked plastic face. Fortunately Corsair support is solid and sent me a new face for the case (thanks)!

Its under my desk, so no need to do too much, but basic wire tucking to keep things out of the way and clean.

I plan to. Been a long time MWO player.

Mostly I built this for CyberPunk 2077, but if it keeps getting delayed I may need another PC built lol.

I played MWO for a few years but the crappy drops and imbalance gameplay made me dropped the game.

MW5 Mercs with mods will be the game for me to get my Mech fix

I agree. On principle I can't buy the game full price because of PGI and how it treated the player base in MWO, so I'm biding my time. Shame as it is a unique gaming experience.

they screwed us over with the epic store exclusive thing

when the pre-order was promised a steam key

missed a chance to get the epic store key on a twitch stream

someone way giving away keys for the game for free

my friend snagged one

the game has many flaws, for a game that was in development for years

PGI simply gave us the mod tool and allowed us to fix their s***

Yes I am hoping mods will save the game. If you played Battletech (I recommend), Roguetech is an amazing example of what talented people can do with mods.

What are the temperatures like for you with just the two fans?

Hottest I've gotten so far is 75°C at the GPU playing Forza 3 at max quality. The CM fan is in there too, and the PC sits on carpet.

Nice build btw. Wondering how your temps are better than mine considering we have the same exact cpu and cooler.

My idle temp: 34-36 degrees My gaming temp: 60-75 degrees

Colder ambient maybe?

Only other thing I can think of - did you mount your Cooler Master horizontally or vertically?
