Gaming Microwave V2

Description

DISASSEMBLED for Metis Plus Build

This is my alternate gaming rig that I keep at my office and bring to the girlfriend's house. I moved the processor/storage over from my Dell XPS 8700 I got in 2013 and the CPU is still a strong competitor. Everything else is new. Been really happy with the 1050 Ti as my "budget" card and the rig plays all the games I like at either Ultra or High settings depending on the title.

I will probably add a boot SSD in here eventually, but I don't use the machine enough to warrant it right now.

The case actually has room for much more serious components, I probably should have done an ITX build with these parts. Good news is I can always add more stuff later on if need be!

I mostly play Overwatch, PUBG, and working through The Witcher 3 right now.

we both have PCs in the same case used to play the same games. Coincidence? I think not.

Great case, nice build and cool colour scheme. Looks a lot neater than mine :)

Why that type of RAM? You could get a 16GB kit for cheaper and you would have open DIMM slots for future upgrades.

Yeah that is totally true. I bought the RAM back when I was still in Dell territory and all I thought was "I've got a window, I want a bunch of red in there!" - lol.

On my more recent build (main pc) I only filled two slots so I would have room to expand in the future. Sometimes you learn the hard way!

+1 for Air 240! Great case!

what do you use for the lighting, and can you please put the list price of the objects you have listed as $0.00 USD

AhodShralpy submitter 8 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

I used DeepCool RGB350 Color LED Strips for the lighting, and then Corsair SP120 RGB fans for the fans.

I put $0.00 for some items because they were carry-overs from a complete Dell system I bought years ago, so I don't think it's relevant to include aftermarket pricing for those.

If you're curious, buying them new right now would add about $300 to the build.
