Description

This is my 3rd personal build. Did my best to take advantage of BF/CM sales between the US and Japan. Some of the parts were taken from my previous build (Kotoko) like the PSU, GPU, and "spinner" storage. Hope to get half a decade or more out of this build, but with the way that AAA titles are going at times, 5 years may be all I'll get.

The CPU heatsink might change to the Noctua D15. I put in an order for the AM4 mounting kit back in the last week of November. It's January now, and I still haven't seen it. However, the Wraith Prism seems to be sufficient at the moment since I haven't overclocked it or even wanted to apply PBO. I feel how it is at stock, is more than fine for me. I may feel different about that later on down the road. I also may feel different about the Prism come summer. For now, I'm going to use the extra 140mm from the D15 package as the exhaust fan

Yuzuki is named after the CLAMP series Chobits. We have 3 other computers named from the series. My previous FX-8350/GTX 970 build (Kotoko), wife's computer 2700X/MSI GTX 970 Golden Edition (Chii-Elda), and an HP Envy Ryzen 2500U (Sumomo)

The figure is Lynn Minmay (or Minmei) from SDF Macross. I'm in my mid 40's and grew up loving Macross. Max and Miriya are still the better pilots though. (waiting to be set ablaze for that). The figure comes from Banpresto celebrating the 30th anniversary of Macross. The exact title of it is Banpresto Macross 30th Anniversary SQ Figure Lynn Minmay Macross F (Frontier) Kosukuro. (If you want to hit eBay for it - or whatever you want to use to get figurines)

Hope you enjoy this build as I much as I had building it. _^

The figure is nice, but having more pictures of the computer rather than the figure inside would be nice

Eh, well...there are 3 shots of the inside of the PC, and then 3 shots of the figurine which really isn't "more" (technically)

Given where my PC is, which is in a bookcase right next to a very old TV stand there really isn't anything good to look at and would actually detract from the PC.

Seriously, our old Japanese house and how we have decorated it with our interests is...heh, well...very otaku like.

PCPartPicker is the last place I expected to see Miss Macross :)

Haha! Yeah, I loved Macross as a kid, and when I saw Minmay at a hobby shop, I had to get her. (I'd go broke if I had to get her the original way - in a UFO catcher) There is a Ranka Lee one too that I might get, but I won't be able to fit in the case. Minmay was a little bigger than I had originally assumed.
