Description

Its a pc I use on a daily basis, mostly for gaming, but youtube, watching twitch, and other things.

I know its a lot of hard drives, but I will explain what I use each for

Samsung 250GB 860 Evo - Boot Drive and applications Cruical MX500 512GB - For games that require super fast access speeds Seagate 1TB HDD - For games I am modding or just standard single player games Seagate 3TB HDD - For long term storage of files and such Seagate 3TB External HDD - Game Backups

As for the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L and Corsair Graphite 230T. Technically the Graphite 230T will not fit a 240mm Radiator and its fans, but I was able to get the radiator and the cpu cooler in the case, and mount the fans on the top of the case and screw them in to the radiator. CPU temps in this setup have never gone over 42c, even when playing heavily modded Skyrim Special Edition.

The fans RGB is controlled through the Asus Aura software , and the rest of the RGB (save for the controller) is controlled through Corsair's Icue, I don't have any merging software on, and I don't plan on, They play nice with each other.

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing CPU for the money. Could not afford the 2600x. So got this instead. No regrets

CPU Cooler

Great AIO. Cools my 2600 very well. Idles at around 39c, and never peaks above 50c. Very impressed. Lots of cables for the RGB wiring, but it does work well with my Asus ROG Strix B450-F and the Asus Aura software.

Case

Very nice looking case. build quality is very good. It's a little cramped to work in for the wiring. And the hard 3.5 inch hard drive caddy area could be built a bit better. Over all though, its very nice. I would recommend it for a more Micro-ATX build though than a full ATX build.

I know that the pc is orange, but I swear that it's either the lighting, the camera, or my phone cause it looks red to me.

Great build, would like to see more pics of the inside of the PC.

I know. I took the images on my LG G6 phone, Its a pretty good camera most of the time, but yeah, in my photo's. It does look somewhat red as well. I do like the smaller side window as well. Hides my terrible wiring job.

This is a nice build, but if you're going to pay the extra money for rgb, I would get a case with a better side panel, and take it out of the box-shelf thing it's in so it's more visible.

I would make it more visible, but i don't have enough room on the top of my desk to put it. Not unless I get rid of the second monitor. And going back to one monitor, no thanks. Also, the side panel hides my horrible wiring job. Trust me :D
