Description

I built this machine for my friend who mainly games at 1080p. I havent given it to him yet but tested a few games on it and WOW it runs so flawlessly. First the RAM easily made it to 3200 mhz which was relieving because I was not sure it was going to work smoothly. Some quick games I played were Fallout 4 (unoptimized mess only ran around 40 fps on ultra), Civ 6 (tried the largest map I could find and it ran so quick, 12 civs and only around a 10 second turn wait.), Tomb Raider (Obviosuly this ran well, over 100 fps), and Shadow of Mordor (Played for about an hour and barely dropped below 100 fps). The case is gorgeous. Easily the most impressive case I have worked with before. The design is very star wars, complete with little feet at the bottom.

Part Reviews

CPU

This thing is a monster. It is so nice to see a top quality CPU from AMD and I really think it will only improve with time. Even now though it is obviously fast and capable of running almost anything without any tweaks (save Fallout 4 which can be picky regardless.)

Motherboard

WOW, the bios is easy to work with and the dual bios feature is fantastic. I love this board and Gigabyte.

Memory

Got this RAM open-box from microcenter and it is pretty good. Doesn't work right out of the box with Ryzen but with a bios tweak it got up to 3200 easily.

Storage

I have my own rig running a Sata ssd and this thing blew me away. Statups in sub 10 seconds is crazy.

Video Card

Seems to run everything really well especially on 1080p. I wish that Fallout 4 worked right and idk if that is to do with Nvidia, Amd, or Bethesda, or possibly a combination. Again this was openbox from microcenter.

Case

So I realize this case is expensive but my friend really wanted this specific one so if he was willing to spend 180 on it then I wasn't going to stop him. The directions were easy to follow and the case LED and fans were fantastic. Never will he run out of USB ports!

Lovely build, how much of an over clock were you able to get on your cpu (assuming you over clocked)

I did not overclock this build as much as it pained me. I haven't dealt with Ryzen and getting the memory to work was enough for me lol

Really nice build. I also really like the name (It is very creative)

Well people either love or hate an over the top case. That case reminds me of old school sci-fi ship design with its boxy white design with some curves added in. Almost looks like a panel section being ripped off the wall from the death star. I'm more of a fan of simplistic case designs.

Solid build though for a mid range gaming rig.
