Description

Decided to build my first ever gaming pc. Went entry level on parts, very fast and silent. Could easily play fortnite on 144 fps, never struggled to play any games on ultra at 60 fps.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Insanely easy to install, no maintenance required. This liquid cooler is dead quiet.

Motherboard

Stunning motherboard with aura sync, absolutely love it. Easy to work with, no clutter. The aura sync makes for some beautiful background colors however even when you shut the pc down there will still be an aura glow if that bothers you.

Memory

The lights on these ram sticks are gorgeous, they are full of color and very bright. You can use corsair link software to customize the lights, work great with aura sync.

Video Card

This graphics card is a great addition to any build, especially a build with multiple Asus parts. This card is actually pretty powerful, can play any game on high settings with great frame rate. The card never overheats! Zero fans spin when not using the card, when in use one fan spins, and when under load both fans spin. Card also has the very lovely aura sync to add some colors to your build.

Case

This case is very flashy, it makes for a beautiful desktop display. The case is complex yet easy to work with, it can be horizontal or vertical with parts to mod the desktop so it can sit both ways. There is plenty of room in the case while still being compact. This case is great for mid sized builds and its open so you don't need any extra fans.

Monitor

I actually have the black monitor and it is very elegant. Clean slick shine without gathering to many fingerprints, the screen does not catch any glare. However the default color setting make everything look washed out and saturated so you will have to fiddle with the settings. The display and response time are great.

Grats on your first build. Jumping in with that open case too. Looks good.

Thumbs up.

Thanks you should see it now, I rearranged everything it looks way better. Like two different computers.

Ugh. There are cable cutouts on that case for a reason. No offence but you might wanna use em

Egyo submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

I didn't do the cables my friend did a really ugly job I redid everything it doesn't even look like those pictures any more it looks way better.

Ah. OK. Fair enough

Nice first build, way better than my first. But you may want to reorganize those cables. That is a display case so you might want to take advantage of that! Otherwise good job

I know it's really ugly in those pictures, my friend did the cables for me because I was busy cooking. I completely redid the inside now and it look like a completely different computer. I even vertically mounted the gpu. I can post other pictures If you're interested.

That would be awesome, I like looking at these open thermaltake builds

Egyo submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Okay I put it up as the fourth picture, please let me know what you think :)

Very nice case, but you should definitely rewire the cables. It'll look a whole lot better. Otherwise, nice build!
