Technically The gaming Plus Max could be different enough to warrant it. I just don't know about your mobo as I don't have it. I can say that I had no alarming issues while installing these parts in the system.
Honest, i thought that white was dust on the front panel at a glance.
That's a lotta damage! I mean images!
That's kind of neat, what was done for hiding the 2.5 storage connectors.
What sort of mad scientist are you? This looks like the desk setup a villain would use.
That Wtf_Factor is the thing that got my attention. Nice uh, detailing.
I wish MSI kept using that style of cooler on their GPU's Personally disappointed in the latest aesthetic they've got. I would have liked to keep the look of my 960 that matched with this same CPU Cooler.
I was referring to the 24-pin and USB 3.0 cable. Some people bend them as odd angles, depending on the case/mobo to hide them as much as possible. But I kind of like letting them be a part of the aesthetic. It blends nicer, I think.
Seems like you had an enjoyable experience. My first build I was terrified I was pushing too hard on the dreaded lever to secure the Intel CPU. The amount of force that was required really made me nervous and took a while before I progressed past that part.
I like that you let those two cable curve outwards more freely for aesthetic appeal rather than trying to completely hide it away. That's the same approach I take with my current system.
What you have is fine enough. I just lack the fancy hardware to bring out the appeal. The shiny and luminescent pieces add to the flare. I learned to take some photos myself some years ago when I was playing with an older bridge camera.
Although you didn't really ask me, I'd like to mention that lowering monitor brightness balances the overall lighting when photographing desk setups. You can lower the shutter speed to capture the ambient lighting from the case and such without blowing out the screen that way. Lower ISO for higher quality tripod shots if lighting is still sufficient, and using a flash helps highlight some of the darker areas, if you still wanted to show off the mouse/keyboard etc.
Lovely and Delicious purple theme. I think a room lights out shot would have looked really nice.
I think putting the front radiator up one tier so that one LED fan is on the top, and other one on the bottom so that the non RGB fan is in the middle will balance out a little better.
I can imagine how nice the LTT noctuas' would have looked in here.
Powered by Violet, nice and compact.
That amount of purple will sustain me for a week. Lovely.
We are speaker buddies. Try some free games on Steam.
It would have also given some more insight if you had set the price you paid for components, but I concerned about the CPU. Was it leftover from a previous build? If you just want nothing to do with AMD that's fine I suppose, but I would have gone with the 3700x at that price tier, paired with a decent B450 motherboard around $100.
I don't follow sports, as I've just never caught any interest in them, but the end result of this build is pretty neat. I wonder how long you spent trying to get those couple of those overview images lined up just right.
Mmh, delicious purple. Lovely.
Started playing mid 2019. It's my first Monster Hunter experience, though I was somewhat aware of the series prior. There are many interesting beasts to capture for.. research.
Good job on making that sort of case look like there isn't any problem with managing cables using that sort of Power Supply. Nearly any build can look of a certain quality when an individual puts in enough effort.
This previous submission has more information about the system before the recent upgrade process. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/D3q48d
TLDC; The choice for the 3000 series was because I originally wanted the 3700X, but dropped down to a 3600X during one of the sales. I wanted the newer generation part and the benefits that came with it for the potential of better streaming and overall system performance, be it for gaming, recording, rendering, etc.
Im jealous. I went for the non-RGB version of Trident Z to save $15. They look really good, with that extra bit of flare.
The fan on the back of the case looks to be set as an intake, instead of an exhaust. Would recommend flipping it if you have not already done so.
Darkness Eternal. It's lovely.
That's a bonding experience. And when you are dedicated to making a themed build come to fruition, that's something to feel good about once it is complete.
How satisfied were you once this was at the point of completion. It's quite smooth.
Those colors give a pleasing nebula theme.
A black/red to get the eyes to water a little in appreciation.
I'll probably never get tired of black/red themes. And the build itself is quite appealing too.
My first thought was that this looked like it came out of a kids classroom project. I guess that wasn't too far off going by that description. I bet it smells flower fresh too.
I apologize for only seeing this comment just now. I don't check the site very often when haven't done anything lately.
The LED can be found in the parts list as a Custom. Amazon or Newegg, though I got it from the former.
Black/Red and some sexy violet.
Possibly overclocked, though it wasn't specifically mentioned in their description. I also got 2666 Speed Ram and it accepted a 3066 XMP preset.
Actually, I used to to that with my phone's light when I wanted to check my GPU fans or.. anything in there really. I'd put it on the top dust filter sometimes because it gave an interesting light effect to the inside. But when I made the Post for this site, I also added a light strip, and this past christmas, I added the second one that came in the combo pack.
I'm quite satisfied with my routing, I managed to keep it out of sight and lint the top and right(Front) of the case. Outside of physical hardware switching, I think I'm done fancying up my case with lighting and fans at this point, don't have any more space for more anyway.
That's about a year's worth. I have a dog that I share my room with, and a ceiling Fan that helps spread that all around. I don't generally dust often until there is an excuse like "well I may as well do it since I'm moving everything from this area anyway". But I do this desktop space cleaning at least once near the end of the year.
I do like seeing the internals, I tend to just start at my GPU sometimes when I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online, or another casual-ish game, knowing my system is doing all kinds of work so I can entertain myself.
I used the same case for my Mother's PC / Home PC build. I also liked the potential airflow it offered, and I wanted to personally do an mATX build.. Actually, I think I mentioned this stuff the last time I posted on your submission.
I don't have much to show about my setup, but I did clean it recently this past november. I've made some further additions after what I put there, but haven't taken new images. https://imgur.com/a/F0IYQsH
I thought that formatting looked familiar. You are clearly not afraid of the brown, and instead embrace it.
Also, I didn't even notice the fans on the GPU at first until I saw another comment that mentioned it.
Simple and to the point description is simple and to the point.
Just get all the colors. All OF THEM. However,
One of these things is not like the other..
Well then.. Browsing through that image stack was an adventure in itself. This build was well documented.
Well, I think it's safe to say that the GPU is not lacking airflow.
That phone is so far away.. I wouldn't want to bother reaching for it. Do you have one of those mechanical grabby arms?
Oh, and that PC looks nice too. How is that sound bar working for you?
Mm, delicious violet accents..
I couldn't tell from the images but is that windows install $0.00 because it's unactivated? it doesn't always show that watermark, just curious.
This color combination always reminds me of a creamsicle. A lot of personalized effort was put into this, That's pretty neat.
Oh man, That tape job.
I'm curious what you are going to do with this system..
Oh, guess you found this here.
It looks a little better after taking care of the extra additions that have been made since then, however I don't have any current images of such.
Regardless of that, thank you for admiring the build.
Blackout with a hint of blue highlights. Not bad.
Well, now it's featured. Good job, that box got a nice little face lift.
Couldn't be any more well planned out than it looks. Clean af.
