This is an revamp of the setup of my first build back in 2015. My old computer was rocking a i5 3570 MSI 660ti Power Edition z77 Asrock OC formula Motherboard 8gb Corsair Vengeance Ram Corsair 750W PSU Corsair h100 AIO Cooler Master CM storm Cherry MX Brown Razer Deathadder Steel Series Siberia V2 Corsair Vengeance C70 Case
Back in 2015, this PC held it's own. However, compared to today's standard it was lacking. So i decided to upgrade! With this current setup, it allows me to record and stream seamlessly without any issues using OBS while my i5 was struggling to game while running OBS.
The Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered Glass Case was not as hard to work with as some would think. Yes, it has tempered glass on the back panel, and the whole world will see your ugly mess. But, if you put some planning and thinking along with using Custom Sleeved PSU cables, you will be fine. Setting up the NZXT Hue+ along with the AER fans was a challenge as the software would not properly sync and the lighting would not work. After hours of picking my brain apart, i managed to get it to work.
The Laptop is for light gaming, and mobile editing of videos and pictures and what not. Overall, the laptop is not a bad choice. The specs you receive for the price you pay is decent and would recommend it to anyone looking for a gaming laptop.
Next i'm planning to get Phillips HUE ecosystem and totally deck out my room with addressable RGB Led's and even change my keyboard to possibly the Corsair K70.
