Hey guys JB here with iKoniK Modz & I'm back with my latest personal build. #ProjectZB7 aka SuperBee
As you can see I based this build around BumbleBee my favorite Transformer! The case modifications were done by me via a dremel, Vinyl, & spray paint. The main things I needed this build to do is listed below. It checks all the boxes with room to spare.
~Play Overwatch, Fortnite & GTA V @ 1080P on Ultra settings if possible ✔
~Run QuickBooks software for my Landscape business ✔
~ Shred video render times for my YouTube channel ✔
~ killer on my desk ✔
So let's break down the part selection shall we. The first pic is an updated pic with my new desktop, new mouse. & mouse wrist rest
CPU: Ryzen 1600X, I was looking to get a Ryzen CPU & stumbled upon a guy selling this on Craigslist brand new for $160 I couldn't pass on that!
CPU Cooler: Fractal Design Kelvin S24 AIO, I grabbed this puppy because I knew I wanted to do a custom loop but wanted to keep my cost low. Since this one is expandable & the pump is in the CPU block it made it a no brainer.
Storage: Crucial MX300 M.2 512GB I wanted to minimize cable clutter so M.2 was the way to go & this was on sale. OCZ ARC 100 240GB SSD is a hold over from my last build & houses most of my games but it's almost tapped out so it will be replaced soon w/ another M.2
Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix B350-i Ryzen ITX, It was a Asus board & had all the features I was looking for. Added bonus was the RGB lighting,Aura software & dual M.2 slots
RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB, Pretty sure this needs no explanation .... I mean look at that awesome RGB goodness!
Power Supply: Silverstone 700w 80+ Platinum SFX, Since I'm a SFF enthusiast I had to grab a SFX & it was on sale at the time.
Case: Phanteks Evolv ITX Tempered Glass, I originally purchased the regular evolv ITX but then this was released & it was a must have! I used armor etch to add my logo to the Tempered Glass. You can check out the video here https://youtu.be/3OSwXucDu14
GPU: Sapphire R9 380, This is honestly a filler GPU with the current GPU pricing. You guys know what I mean.
Monitor: Samsung CFG70, This monitor is (Almost) perfect. It's 24" 1080p 144hz Curved Quantium Dot w/Freesync. This monitor is the truth! kicks major arse in gaming & gives great visuals for content creation.
Fans: Enermax TB RGB, These were a last minute addition. They were released last week & I knew immediately I had to have them. I was considering the Corsair LL120's but I get 6 of these for less then I would get 3 Corsairs so it's a no brainer. Plus I think they look pretty sick! They move a ton of air and are currently keeping my rig rather breezy! They are pretty freakin' quiet also!
Keyboard: Corsair Strafe w/ MX Silent Switches. Looks great & gets the job done. However it will soon be replaced by a K95 Pltinum w/ Speed switches
Mouse: Corsair Dark Core RGB, This mouse gives me everything I needed & then some. It's overall great for gaming & content creation. The programmable macro keys on the side have come in clutch so many times. Also the fact is wireless means less clutter! I definitely recommend this hotness! Srocker mouse is for late night gaming. So far it's the best silent mouse I have found. It helps keep me from being impaled by flying stilettos @ 1am
Mouse Pad: Corsair MM800 RGB, It's Corsair & matched my RGB setup
Cables: Epic sleeved cables from Ensourced.net .
Headphones: Astro A50 - Black 7.1 Channel Headset - These are another hold over from my last build! There still kicking so I'm rockin' with them til they die!
Headphone Stand: Corsair ST100, Again it's Corsair & matched my setup
Speakers: JBL Pebbles, I saw these & was like perfect! The are by JBL, have a great sound profile & are USB connection.
Webcam: Logitech C920 for streaming purposes!
Reservoir: Swiftech Micro revision 2, I was looking for a small squarish res & this fit the bill perfectly!
Extras: BumbleBee Funko Pop & Soldier 76 Pop
In the end, I am really pleased with this build! Thanks for checking out my build.
