Description

Updated version of a build over the past 2 years or so.

Love every piece of my build, the only problem I have is I should have gotten a different motherboard, regardless it works well and does what I want it to.

The case I have is extremely small, some would say they hate it but I absolutely love it. Makes it extremely easy to move around and is a very solid case that I can continue to use in future builds. The only downside is it doesn't have a CD Drive like the bigger version. But that was solved with buying a 20$ usb CD Drive on Amazon. Only reason I needed one was to play some old computer games I had.

My cable management is a complete mess, that is mostly because of laziness. There is plenty of space to put the cables, especially in the back where the PSU is.

Windows 10 is great I have heard some bad things about it but I personally love it, it's simple, works well, and looks nice.

My Processor, Ram, and Motherboard is getting outdated, but I'm still kicking it at 1080p 60fps minimum on almost every game I play, and can still stream around the same anyways.

The price is a little off, it cost around 2300$ for everything in my PC.

Sweet build, but at this price point I would have gotten a better mobo.

Yeah, I probably would have went with something different but I didn't know much about motherboards at the time, so I just went with the one my friend recommended, still a nice motherboard though :D

Nice! Interesting keyboard choice-- I've heard those are really nice keyboards. What are your thoughts?

I think it's awesome, built nice, the keys feel nice and very solid keyboard, if you want quality I would go with a das, if you prefer some lighting and looks maybe something else would be satisfying :D

Like your build I love my Phantom 530 (white) as well, it is huge but I knew that going in, even with my full ATX MOBO it makes it look small though, can only imagine how tiny your board looks in it.

Do want to get your opinion on the mouse I am considering buying Thermaltake eSPORTS mouse and keyboard specifically the Theron(white) how do you like it, how is the build quality etc.

I love this mouse, it feels comfortable on my hand and you can also change the colors to your liking with the software the mouse comes with. You can also change the sensitivity up to 5400 dpi I believe if you want to go that high. I have had it for over a year now so pretty solid mouse imo :D

hey, since you kinda started the red/black interior theme, check out www.frozencpu.com and try looking for some sleeved cable extensions. They make them in red/black and would really make your rig look nice instead of the mix-mash of colors from the factory psu.

I wasn't really worried about color in this build, I just got what was within my budget, but in future builds I will spend more time on color schemes and making the build look nice :D
