Description

CPU/MOBO: My trusty old 2500k has been pulling double duty as a gaming PC and media file server for many years now, but I've been itching to put something new together that will be dedicated specifically for gaming. I chose the X370 Taichi because it was on sale, and VRMs are supposed to be solid. Paired it with a R5 1600 and a Samsung NVME drive. I've never had an Asrock board before, but it seems to be pretty good so far.

GPU: With GPU prices and availability going absolute nuts there were limited options. I actually found a reasonably priced RX580 on Amazon.jp, which I promptly ordered, only to have amazon tell me that it wouldn't ship for 2 months. With the board and CPU already on the way I cancelled the order and promptly found a decent deal on a 6GB GTX1060. I sometimes use the nVidia game streaming to my living room tv anyways, so this seemed like it might be a blessing in disguise.

Case: I have been agonizing over which case to get for a long time. It was probably the thing that I spent the most time thinking about tbh. I have always liked the looks of the 303, but hated that the led colors couldn't be changed. Then Inwin released the 101, which caught my attention, but a press release stating an RGB version was around the corner had me playing the waiting game again. Then I stumbled upon the somewhat newly released 303 RGB, and snapped it up after an evening mulling it over.

Still to come: cable extensions, new 2.5" ssd for steam library, General tidying up

Your English is fine, don't worry. I haven't checked availability in countries outside of Japan, but I believe it is currently available in most of Asia. I'm sure it will come out in other regions soon if you can be patient. It was a little expensive, but I really like it so far. Here is a list of some places that have it for sale in Japan:

Decal? I'm not sure what you mean. Are you talking about the INWIN logo? That is etched into the glass and there is an led along the edge of the glass that lights it up.

May I ask, why did you get the Palit Gtx 1060? Is there something that justifies it's $981.65 price tag compared to models with a price of $279.99 with almost the exact same core, and boost clock speeds? Was your graphics card priced differently when you first made your build?

I don't know where the price was taken from, I certainly didn't pay that. When I bought it, it was around 25,000 yen, which is like $250 or so. Not bad at all considering the crazy prices at the time.

Gotcha! Thank you for the information man! Turns out it was mispriced by accident :)

Yep, I would want to know who would pay that much too!

Hi, Yeah, I was worried about it too, but the layout just works somehow. And temps are better than expected too.
