Description

I was in need of an upgrade from my 6-year-old system I had frankensteined together over the years. Old system was an AMD FX-8370, GTX 970, 16GB 1866 RAM, 500GB Crucial MX500 SSD.

With the new system I wanted style and power, and what's more classic than black and white? And by going with a single manufacturer for the majority of my components, I could control the RGB effects end-to-end.

In all, I'm very happy with the way the system turned out. The case was big enough to maneuver around adding components and tightening screws without any bruised knuckles, and the cable management was less of a headache than I feared. So far, running at a cool 30C even when overclocking to 4800MHz.

Clean build. I like it. I'd give you another +1 if I could for your awesome desktop background.

This looks awesome, have the thermals stayed cool?

So far! After an hour of gaming on ultra, the highest I've gotten the system temp up to is 43C. Hydro and airflow all seem good, and heatspreaders on the Mobo are keeping things cool down below as well.

Clean build! Looks like a beast! Colour scheme is fancy and no cables to be seen, love it!

This is pretty similar to my build I’m about to go for. Excited to see how it all pans out!

just curious is this for gaming or editing or what are you doing ? Also, I heard there was some issues with the Ram not being compatible with the motherboard and some blue screens happening? Have you had any troubles

Hello, sir! Quick question for you. The fans you have installed on the top. Are those all in an exhaust configuration? I'm considering picking up this case and installing the same AiO at the front for intake, and using two fans for exhaust at the top and back.

May I ask you why you chose intel over AMD? I'm working on putting together a build, but I keep getting recommended to go AMD 39/3700x.... Love your build though! Beautiful.
