Description

It took a few overhauls, but I've finally done it. A computer devoid of ketchup and mustard cables. Only the purest of matte black with a hint of violet lighting.

This beast is able to switch between the gaming oriented Windows OS and the software development oriented OpenSUSE Linux OS faster than I can walk to the kitchen and take a quick sip of water.

Games run at 1080p perfectly fine above 60fps (and sometimes even 144fps). Any task thrown at it has been graciously computated quickly and efficiently. Absolutely no complaints other than Windows regularly crashing, even after a few resets. There's a reason why I only do software development on Linux.

Turns out the camera wasn't exactly capturing the colours correctly so it looks more indigo rather than violet. Oh well.

Great build, love purple! What’s that wallpaper?

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 4 points 3 months ago

I just searched "purple space cube wallpaper" into google images and got the first result. The quality was a bit off on the gradients so I did a few touchups to smooth it out. No idea who the original creator is but here's the modified version. https://ibb.co/VmXW0J9

Very nice! Liking the Sapphire gpu too, looks great with the theme.

Rgb fans in the front?

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

It's the fans that came with the AIO cooler so yes. Unfortunately, they're barely visible so I disabled them.

I wanted to do a purple build but it didn't work out. So now, I have this red build.

Damn that's a lot of red. We all know that red makes anything run faster. Hopefully you won't have to stick with your GT 710 for long. ;)

diypartsjoy 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I won't plan to upgrade to GT 730. LOL. Just kidding. I am planning to upgrade to a GTX 1070.

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Well that sounds like a good plan. You best be keeping your framerates high and your temperatures low.

diypartsjoy 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I only do 2D so it doesn't really matter.

Mehrbod 2 points 3 months ago

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Oh no I forgot to put the mouse in the parts list. I'll fix it right away! :)

ThatGuyBryce 1 point 3 months ago

Very Nice Speakers. I have the same. How did you get the green light to vanish? or did you just turn them off?

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

It's just turned off in the images haha.

tom.meech 1 point 2 months ago

Are the fans compatible with aura sync?

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Yes they are compatible with aura sync. That's actually the reason why I bought them.

thrty8street 1 point 2 months ago

Do you recommend these speakers?

MineTEM submitter 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

They're alright. Definitely not audiophile quality but the bass is enough to satisfy.

thrty8street 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks!
