https://youtu.be/A5jkUF3zKAc - Aura sync video, btw the GPU is kinda off
AIO - This corsair GTX h100i cooler looks nice, 240mm, and was very cheap. $75 from craigslist.
CPU/MB/RAM - These three parts were in a bundle on craigslist for $480. A deal I couldn't pass up on. This year the hottest CPU has to be the Ryzen 7 1700. It has 8 cores and 16 threads, crazy fast for rendering. I overclocked mine to 3.8 GHz. The motherboard is just what I wanted. Branded by ASUS, so Aura Sync is that I wanted to go with this. X370 chipset is nice to have, but not needed. Has an RGB header for my Phanteks strips, which can also aura sync. The motherboard also has a bit of RGB and white accents which compliment the build. Also, the motherboard feels kinda cheap, it doesn't have a shroud over the ports on the top left. Which the Intel version has a shroud over their's for the same price. Fortunately, I 3D printed shrouds for it and a shroud for the motherboard cable area. Sadly a few months later ASUS dropped the X370 Strix, which I thought would never launch after all this waiting >:(( The ram is reliable, overclocked to 2933 Hz. I know I got this in a bundle but would've loved RGB g.skill ram.
Storage - I've had this SSD for a year now, got it super cheap on Black Friday. I also have a 1TB HDD, got it free from an old laptop.
GPU - The ASUS Strix was the must-have I wanted, I overpaid yea, but it was the basis of my build. The card has a 3 fan design that looks great and syncs up with the build. It was tighter than expected, but personally, like my PC compact rather than all my parts separated.
Case - The P300 is the best case that has ever come out in my opinion. It's crazy, but it looks so great for the price. If the case costs $100 I would still get it. The case's height is longer than its width, which gives it a slim and tall design. It's light and small, which makes everything in the case look like a single unit. Personally, I do like small cases like these over a big case with a bunch of empty space. The RGB on the case syncs up with my Phanteks RGB strip, GPU, and MOBO. The feet look way cooler than those fractal design silver hockey puck feet. The PSU shroud is a 90-degree angle fold looks so much better than fractal design's and NZXT's PSU shroud curve. The best part has to be the tempered glass design. Almost every case up till now usually had a tempered glass surrounding the whole front panel. This case a has separated PSU and tempered glass, probably to cut costs, but really I do like it more than having to see the PSU shroud being behind the glass for no reason. It looks just so much better seeing that tempered glass sitting on top of the PSU shroud.
Power Supply - 450w PSU is enough. Nice black cables, no problems so far. Also, kids, don't underpay for your power supply. Don't make the same mistake as me, but in my case no problems so far.
MODS - So to get the verticle mount, it wasn't free, but not expensive either. All you need are big wire cutters and a PCI-E Cable Extention. The cable was only $20, it's black and on eBay.
3D Printing - I have a CR-10 for those fellow 3D printing community members. I just printed out a white interface shroud and a motherboard cable shroud I found on ASUS's website. Looks cool and fits the build. The motherboard looks like a potato without the shrouds.
Peripherals - Headset is the g430. Best headset for the price. It's $40, great sound, microphone, and AMAZING bass! The mouse is the g502, got it on Black Friday for $25, nevertheless, it's amazing with easy DPI controllers and infinity scroll which is sooo good. The mouse's looks are very cool with a beautiful thumb rest, angular design, and blue LEDs. The keyboard is just some $40 crap mechanical RGB keyboard. It's 10 keyless, nice mechanical switches, looks cool, and fits well under my monitor stand. The mouse pad is RGB but doesn't wave, it slowing blinks the rainbow colors, but hey it was only $12 on Vipon.com.
Monitor - It's an LG monitor that features it's Ultrawide design, 29" diagonally and 1080p. Super cheap on eBay for $160.
