Named after the Emperor Penguin, this is a state of the art Micro ATX sleeper build.
This really was a breeze to put together, everything just worked out of the box. Enabled XMP in Bios and it was good to go.
I'm a sucker for the mATX form factor, and this board has one of the best mATX VRMs available. The case, like my previous computer, is by Fractal Design, this time the updated Define Mini C, which I thoroughly enjoyed building in!
If I had fu money, I would probably go all out on a white themed build, but for now this build has a different theme: Cost Effectiveness :-) (He says with a 3900X...)
Yeah, the CPU might be overkill but I'm often running multiple performance heavy programs at the same time, so I figured it was better to have some headroom.
Usages include: (VR) Gaming, Software Development, Image Editing, Light to moderate 3D Modelling, Light Video Editing
I thought about going for a 2080 SUPER, but instead opted for the cheaper 2070 SUPER with the option to upgrade to a 3000 series card when they come out if I need the extra performance.
