Description

Well this is my first pc build, calling it Snowfall (for obvious reasons)

When first building it(about a month ago) it took me 6 hours in total to put it together and install the needed software lmao. At that time I had a red and black Phanteks p300.

But today I finally (what I consider) finished it since it now has a white case to match my setup.

I'm gonna be upgrading my ram to 16gb once prices go down (hopefully)

(The led's on the fans look blue on camera but they're white)

Part Reviews

CPU

Great cpu, can easily handle my 1060 6gb

CPU Cooler

Keeps my cpu very cool, also looks nice so that's a plus

Motherboard

Great budget motherboard from what I can tell, nothing wrong with it so far

Memory

Looks great and performs even better

Storage

Extremely fast, especially coming from a laptop to a full desktop

Storage

Quiet, and pretty cheap for the storage capacity

Video Card

Can handle every game I throw at it, high ultra, 60-120fps

Case

HOW IS THIS SO CHEAP?? 10/10 Looks amazing

Case Fan

4/5 I was a bit disappointed the led's aren't exactly the white I wanted, but other than that they're great

+1, love that background! Is that the Wallpaper Engine version?

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Im not sure, I found it on google by searching "White polygon background" lmao

nice build. how's the keyboard? i just might get it.

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Ty,

Its great, I just had to put o rings on the space bar since it was a bit too loud for my liking without them

aud10_fr3ak 1 point 7 months ago

another question: how do you control the rgb light strip thing? i might also get that case (i'm not trying to copy you, just want to know about the case(probably getting the black version))

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Sorry for late reply, There is no rgb light strips on the case, the lighting you see is from the two fans that are shown on the list

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

And if you're talking about the strip of led lighting then theres a small button that controls the colours on the top of the case, it has basically every colour lol

ThatKidThad 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

just looking at this set up makes me claustrophobic

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

How so? Its not cramped at all lmao

SarcasticBo 1 point 7 months ago

Very nice build, love the clean feel of your set-up. How do you like the mouse mat? I've been back and forth on whether or not to pick it up on amazon.

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Thanks, spent alot of time working on it

As for the mouse mat, Its great, It gets a bit dirty so I wash it once or twice a month. The only downside is that there are still a few wrinkles in it from packaging(Which might be a one time case) but I can live with it considering there's no other white mouse mat that's this cheap lol

SarcasticBo 1 point 7 months ago

Awesome! Thanks so much for the reply, I think I will snag it then. Good luck and hope my build turns out as nice and clean!

How did you get your cpu to run at 3.9?!?

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

It turbo clocks itself when possible, the max is 3.9

Ultimateandy88 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

how is the on board audio with this? considering buying this MOBO. Nice build!

Shiloh_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

On board audio? im plugged into the front of the case but it sounds really good

and thanks ^

I love the P300. Such a well rounded case.
