Description

I joined PC gaming a couple years ago when I had enough with my prebuilt HP desktop that could barely run GTAV at the lowest possible settings with a whopping 5-10FPS. From there, I started with a modest PC with an i7 4790 and GTX 970, and I slowly upgraded parts here and there as time went on, and this is where I am now.

I'm most likely going to get crucified for admitting this, but I really don't play many games. I just graduated last May, and while in high school, I competed on my school's VEX robotics team (which placed 3rd in the world out of 12,000 teams). Robotics ate up a majority of my time thus I didn't play many games. In the free-time I did have, I mostly watched YouTube and Netflix, because I was so worn out from school and robotics. Nowadays I've played more games but still not much.

I have overclocked my system as far as it'll go and have posted pictures of my Firestrike and Cinebench scores.

**The fluid looks darker in person, it's difficult to perfectly capture what the computer looks like in a photo

Feel free to ask any questions! If you stuck to the end of this paragraph, thanks for reading!

Nice build bro! P.S donate 1 of those 1080s to me.(you do not game as much thus you prob are already fine with the best gaming processor and one of one of best gpus in the world)

I am in love with your color scheme!! The only nit-pick i have with your rig is the SLI bridge, I think getting an EVGA one. I think that will bring the whole build together

Really thinking about getting this case if it goes on sale and wanted to know did you make that psu shroud or buy it somewhere? Also can you upload a photo of the rear?

Keith_Horton submitter 3 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

I made the shroud out acrylic. I thought the original one was pretty terrible so I made my own. I can take a photo of the back of the case when I get home.

Uploaded

I was kinda asking for a picture of the rear/cable management side with the glass, sorry should have clarified.

Keith_Horton submitter 3 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

My bad lol, I uploaded a picture
