Description

This was originally built with upgrade in mind, I had a challenge to keep it under 800, he has a very nice LG 4K TV he wanted to take actual advantage of, the 1070 can do the job in most games he plays. So he will be adding parts over time. Now we originally bought a cheaper mother board, an MSI Z370a or something "refurbished" on amazon, it came dead and we had to drive to best buy to get him a motherboard. There was 2 motherboards we could buy, some random MSI board for 130$ and the Asus Strix board for 190$ luckily we were buying a usb wifi adapter for 40$ and since this board has built in wifi we got it instead.

He's a pipeliner and travels alot for work so I chose this case because it's moderately light and small for mid tower so it's not a big deal to set into his truck.

Bought the 1070 used and it came with the custom GPU backplate (its RGB) I have no pictured of It plugged in tho.

Hold on, did you both add builds to PCPP, because there's another stickerbomb build for "Jose".

Either way, sick build.

Sleeved cables and a better looking CPU cooler would've made this build look perfect! But it still is a really nice build!

What a great build. Any idea if the psu shroud at the bottom can be removed?

No it is riveted to the case, I mean I'm sure it could be cut out but that would messy
