A PC for 1080p gaming, built for my partner so we can share the wonders of PC gaming together! Created with a mixture of aesthetics and cost in mind. Went for the 1600 over the 1500X for those sweet sweet cores, kept the stock cooler to save cost now, with the option for an AIO down the line for the overclocking.
GTX 980 was as compromise due to the ethereum mining craze making the original plan of an RX 570 go out the window. It's still overkill for 1080@60. Plus the Zotac AMP! looks pretty cool.
We were hoping for more pink LEDs in the case, but the only pink LED fans that weren't NZXT Hues were poor, so red was the closest without spending too much on RGB.
The Corsair Air 240 is the best choice of small, nice looking, white and inexpensive, the massive rear cable management area is a boon and keeping the PSU away from the rest of the components gives a much nicer look.
The MSI board was the only white board that's not Asrock at the time of purchase.
Ram was chosen for being cheap and at a decent speed, struggling to get it to rated speed at the moment but that could be a BIOS issue.
Otherwise a happy little pc waiting for decoration!
Easily the best Cost/Performance processor on the market right now. Runs cool on the stock AMD Wraith Spire at stock speeds.
Great looking board for a white build, plenty of PWM fan headers and a flat USB 3 header for better cable management.
Great case with a solid design, the dual chamber makes cable management a breeze. Fantastic air flow with a great intake air path to the CPU and GPU.
A few gripes, you can't use the bottom fan intakes with an mATX board, the main chamber doesn't allow for a decently big 3rd party air cooler. The window has a heavy tint to it,
Nicely sleeved and whisper quiet under load. No short SATA power lead however.
