Description

Took feedback from my first build and made some additional updates. Most excited about the upgraded graphics card and the custom paint job I did to a black/blue NZXT 500i! More pictures to come of the painting project for now here is the final product! Was a ton of fun to build and way less stressful as a second build I encourage anyway who had a rough time on the first build to keep it up, it go much better for me the second time.

You installed the ram wrong! it should be in the first and third slots, not first and second.

You want it in that config for dual channel making your ram faster

Cool build! I like the paint. one thing I would suggest is you could've gotten like a 500w psu that was fully modular and it'd work fine.. 850w is overkill for this.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the mobo in the part list and the one in the picture is not the same. Otherwise, great build!

You are right i could not get that mobo because its backordered maybe discontinued but i updated the list i went with an Asus ROG b450!

I'd suggest getting that build off of that carpet, it's gonna suck in a lot of dust and cause some static buildup (not sure if that is the right term) which isn't too good for your system.

Now that it looks nice the fiance let me put it off the carpet next to the TV! (picture 4)

I was trying to look for one didn't think of it before, any suggestions on where to get on and are they custom to each card?

You didn't watch the Verge PC build did you? xD In order for your RAM to run in dual channel it must be placed in the proper slots. It's possible for your PC to not even post properly the way you installed it lol.

Good to know! First build only had two slots didn't even think to check, thanks for the feedback!

It's an ATX case so I don't see a reason why not without checking the graphics card dimensions
