Description

I Just recently upgraded my Setup from a Notebook (Lenovo G70-70) with two Monitors connected to a nice looking Ryzen PC with lots of Upgradeability for Future Stuff.

My starting point was my notebook with the 21:9 and an old 4:3. That old Monitor decided to die on me, and so I decided to replace that Monitor, my current Setup, replace some furniture in my room, mod my Desk, route a cable from my PC to my TV, etc. Yep that actually escalated pretty quickly.

I started with taking apart my setup, put away my Cables and stuff and started to take apart what was originally a MALM desk from Ikea. I thought that that odd pull out thing was pretty useless, because I would not really use it, and it was inconvenient because of the height difference. I took that pull out apart, replaced its wheels with some Capita Legs and Mounted it back to the Desk with some Metal plates. Now it was on to choosing the PC Parts for my small Black and White Build. Which Parts I chose and why: CPU: Powerful APU, with enough Graphics Horsepower for my current needings. MOBO: There are only two MATX AM4 Boards in white and I had no place I could get the B350M Mortar Arctic from so the B450M Mortar Titanium it was. RAM: Cheapest 2x4GB 3000 Kit without red or blue Accents SSD: just a basic M.2 NVME SSD because I wanted to Cooler and Fans: Led Lighting and Matching, nice looking, quiet Fans sold me on those parts Case: I was looking for ages until I could find a Case that was: - Reverse Layout, because of my desk configuration - Tempered Glass to show off the inside - MATX maximum size, just to avoid having a half empty Case Finally found a really good case that looks really nice in my opinion PSU: Cheapest Fully Modular PSU in Combination with Sleeved White Cables I could get where I live.

After Sourcing all the Parts an building the PC, Cablemanagement in the PC and on the Desk had to start. I Invested quite some time on that, but I simply hate Cables flying aroung so I tried to hide the as good as it was Possible. Still have to Hide the HDMI cable to my TV and the Cable for my RGB light Picture, but have not decided on what will look best, but that definitely will come. Tell me what you think about it, but don't be too hard, it's my first Build

No problems so far. Loving it just like on day one. Are you concerned about discolorations or something?

Oh not at all! I was planning to make a build with the same mobo. and wonted someone who had used it to give me some good feedback on it. Plus at the time I posted reviews were not present. Thank you!

I'm wondering the same thing, a white mobo would be nice if it holds up.

I just removed the metal bars the pull out was sliding on, removed the wheels on the bottom. Then I cut down the base plates of some small captita legs and screwed them where the wheels where before. In the emd I used some metal plates and screws and connected the desk and the second part from the underside. I hope that explains it well enough, if not I can add some pictures if that helps.

Im sooo close to buying this case. It looks soo nice, but ive heard its a bit of a pain to build in. I was going to do the same theme but with dim white fan centres and rgb rings. Not sure how it would look haha.

Connnecting and managing the 8Pin EPS on the bottom was pretty hard with it being crammed between the PSU shroud and the CPU Cooler. And I had to get a Y-Extension for my Front fans, otherwise one of them would've not reached a Fan header, but other than that it was pretty easy to build and to manage all the cables
