Canadian Dollars. Looking for something to play with. RGB GALORE! OR I'd like to make a small Steam build I can put in my living room. I debated on buying the steam link or building.

I'd like to try a mesh case. I currently have a Fractal R5.

I kind of want to try an intel build, as I've already done AMD Ryzen.

$3000 limit.

Go nuts! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Many thanks in advance!

mouse/keyboard/OS/monitor, i already have

I won't lie, I really like that case! Thank you!

RGB GALORE

-With a budget like this you gotta go i7-8700K and GTX 1080Ti

-I KNOW you said you wanted to try a mesh case, and they are cool, but you said RGB GALORE! so I went with the thermaltake view 31 TG RGB. I actually have this same case picked out for my next build.

-Since I went with the Thermaltake view 31 TG RGB I went with the thermaltake - water 3.0 riing RGB liquid CPU cooler, and thermaltake - Riing 14 RGB fans (these are the same fans on the case so it matches nicely)

-Standard 500GB SSD and 2TB HHD

-The Asus ROG STRIX Z370-E is a premium gaming mobo with some cool RGB

-The G.Skill Trident Z RGB is prime RAM and the RGB is only $47 more than the non-RGB and is worth in my opinon plus it fits in your budget

-Keep in mind that you will have to remove the drive bays (maybe not all of them) to fit the Zotac - GeForce GTX 1080Ti in.

I hope this fits to your liking and I hope my explanations were suffice : )

joshwhite submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 days ago

That'll light up the ROOM lol Thanks. I've looked at those Corsair fans. They're definitely on my wish list along with the Meshify. Is the NZXT Liquid Cooler easy to install?

d6d 0 points 2 days ago

lol Haha sorry about not including a brief overview about the build. This'll be a pretty amazing build for anything you have planned. The first time I installed the X62 AIO Cooler was pretty hard since it was my first ever AIO cooler but it's definitely worth the struggle for the amazing aesthetic and low temps on the CPU. I could have my i7-8700K overclocked at 5Ghz but still maintain low temps. AIO coolers have a bit of a learning curve to them for first time builders, but there's nothing a Youtube video can't fix. Be sure to do research on all of the components before buying so you don't screw anything up haha. Is it okay if I edit the build a little? I didn't realize it went over budget until now. Also, the original post had a bit of a compatibility issue regarding the SSD and motherboard so this version has a different SSD but it's not available on Amazon.ca sadly so you'll have to buy it from Newegg or Memory Express. I realize it's a bit over budget and am working to make a cheaper version.

Here's a more affordable build. 850W is enough for the build and the RGB capabilities aren't perfect but will suffice. It's definitely not as great as the previous power supply but is still a great choice. If you have the money I'd go with my edited build rather than this. 1000W leaves plenty of room for any upgrades.

great build would've gone with the exact same list except wouldn't opt for such a flashy power supply power supplies don't need RGB would just go for another 850 Watt power supply like this:

it'll only make the total like $2960
