Description

This is my 2018 gaming / college computer. This is my first build and everything went incredibly well. Runs flawlessly never passing 70c while playing AAA title games. This beast of a machine is an incredible leap from my ASUS notebook and was long past due. Using this computer is a very enjoyable experience. The ASUS BIOS is very easy to navigate and the overclocking abilities are expansive.

Cool build, but I think cable management could be improved a bit. +1 nonetheless

I agree, cable management is difficult for me, I really need to re wire everything in my opinion. First build though but I’ll get to it... eventually.

This PC looks very cool. The cable management could be better but I couldn’t do better so it’s all good!

I hope to rearrange some cables in the future but I’m not sure where to start

I hope to rearrange in the future just a little lost on what to do.

You should install the Vertical Gpu Mount i installed it in my case the same as yours, it looks dope and enough room, the temperatures get to 65 but i don't think it matters its a slight location re positioning

Does the Vertical GPU mount come with the case?

No it does not, I ordered off amazon and have it installed in mine and my brothers. You do a little modding in the back of the case i used metal pliers to cut the metal parts to prevent any dust or debree that would come from using a dremel tool

I'm in no position to put anymore money in to this build at the moment, but thanks!

It's a good case i love it. Had the original acrylic at first but then didn't like it as much, and switched to glass edition and loving it since then. Amazon accidentally delivered an extra GPU Mount haha if you lived in oregon i would've hooked you up

Lucky you to slip through amazon QC, little too far from Oregon, Northwest Indiana

Love it! Looks pretty similar to my build :p I'm in a similar boat, but I tried to be a lot more budget friendly. I still made sure it was pretty future-proofed and upgrade ready though: air-cooled 8700k + 1070

Checked out your build, very cool and a lot more wallet friendly!

Thanks! I had to RMA my graphics card sadly...nothing wrong with the card itself as far as I could tell, but the LEDs were dysfunctional...and ya gotta have that LED/RGB in 2018 ¯_(ツ)_/¯...Should be getting my replacement in a week or so, so I'll post more pictures + actual benchmarks then!

1 tb has been fine for me! Plus you can an always slap in another drive. Super simple. I might get a cheap M.2 nvme drive in the future for boot but it’s comepltely unnecessary due to the speed of my current SSD. Thank you!
