Description

Dantrius is an AMD based system that will be mostly used for gaming and light video editing for a crappy YouTube channel. Some parts are carried over from a previous build and some are new.

CPU - The Ryzen 3600 was chosen due to being quite effective at gaming, while also being able to hold its own while recording and editing as well. For the price, it is one of the best CPU's in the market. It allowed me to get a great performing processor without having to sell some organs.

Motherboard - I chose the MSI b450i due to there being few mini itx boards available. The built in WiFi works quite well and most of the connections are located in good locations. Only gripes I have with the motherboard are the amount of fan headers. One for CPU and one for case fans. I do recommend connecting the front IO connectors before installing a graphics card as they are located right above it. Doesn't have any flashy leds or colours on the board, very neutral. Updating the bios for Zen2 support was really easy as well.

Memory - Carried over from last build. They were cheap at the time (Sadly). Not flashy but get the job done. Have had no issues.

Drives - All ssds were bought over time. Probably not worth buying several small ones. The Barracuda has been used in many computers in the past. Hasnt failed me yet.

GPU - Cheapest 1080ti when I got it. Great card as we now 1080ti's were. Main problems were with gigabyte. No backplate on a $1000 gpu, really? Also the gigabyte software was not very friendly to me or the card. It felt that the fans should be at 0% at all times.

Case - Beautiful ITX Case. Surprising easy to build in for an ITX case. Plenty of room for cable management. The case is sturdy and has plenty of room for upgrades in the future. Only one case fan though.

Power supply - Came from last build also. Cant remember much about it when I got it apart from that it has been reliable for the past two years. Also mustard cables.

Planned Upgrades: - AIO cooler, possibly the Be Quiet 120mm - Storage revamp, too much going on in terms of storage - Fans for intake - Modular power supply - New ram
