Description

This is a PC for my kids and occasional gaming, and they like some RGB elements. As it sits in the same room as 2 other computers and the TV it needs to be quiet. This is crazy quiet under load. The Fractal mini mATX case has just enough room from what this build needs. I chose the ASUS TUF MB as I have another system from last year that uses the same MB and it has been stable and frequently updated. The CPU Cooler is massive and just barely fit with the RGB Memory. I ended up getting the Seasonic Focus Platinum as the Gold was on back order, I can't tell if that fan ever has kicked in.

I have a stable configuration with the memory at ~3300MHz and the CPU at 5GHz, GPU @ 2010MHz.

The one annoying thing is the Corsair memory. While I got it to use the Asus Aura, the colors don't match the ASUS boards, so I controlled it separately with their iCUE software.

How much tweaking did it take to fit the ram under the Dark Rock pro 4; I am looking on getting the cooler with ram about 45-46mm in height and do you think it would fit in a Meshify C?
