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: A few months ago, we were contacted to build a high-end, six-core PC for a client who wanted a machine to learn game development and video editing on while he attended a nearby college. He also noted that he needed a PC for his competitive gaming career. He wanted us to use his GTX 980, 650W PSU, and Windows 10 from his old PC; but everything else was to be a major upgrade from his past rig. The finished product is one of my favorite builds in recent memory.

As per the client's requests, we built around the six-core i7-6800K on the Asus X99 motherboard. The amazing Noctua NH-U14S was selected to cool the large processor. The client's old GTX 980 and 16GBs of RAM were used for his graphical and memory needs. A 120GB PNY SSD and WD 1TB HDD were chosen for his storage drives. This build was encased in one of the best cases to come through the Lotus workshop: the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX. The dual tempered glass panels look gorgeous, displaying all the PC's components in RGB glory. This case was a true pleasure to work with and we recommend it to anyone that wants an attention-grabbing PC. Overall, we hope you enjoy checking out this build half as much as we enjoyed building it.

The light leaks makes me feel like whenever you press the power button, all the lights in you house must dim for a couple seconds, lol.

The POWERRRRR!

Well done.

yeah i have a phanteks rgb strip too and it is bright as hell

MarshmellowMan2 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Dang, that's a nice case. Please cut down that rgb strip a little more instead of looping it back over to the corner!!

Thanks for the critique! This was the first build we used the Phanteks LED 2 Meter Strip, and it taught us that unless the case is a full tower, maybe two 1 meter strips will allow for a cleaner installation.
