Description

We built the Vanguard with a LAN Gamer in mind. We wanted it to be small portable and powerful. The RX 480 had just been released and it looked like the price performance king of Full-HD gaming. It made a very solid base to build off, I like these new AMD cards a great deal.

Originally we built it in a Bitfenix Prodigy M Micro-ATX case, but we also offer it in a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv mATX for those less on the wild side. We also put some skins on these for demonstration and customers.

It has got a lot of grunt for its size and price and is quiet, compact and carryable. You may have seen me at LAN-Slide with it.

The lack of consistency within the photos makes it hard to figure out which build this actually is ....

It's a good case and very cool, I put drives on the floor, makes cable routing a lot easier. Putting the AIO in was a chinese puzzle. It can make a great compelling base though.

"Putting the AIO in was a chinese puzzle."

I laughed pretty hard at this. I have this case with a 240mm on the CPU and a 120mm on the GPU. I'm glad I got it to fit because I was pretty sure after the first 30 minutes this wasn't going to work.

Nice build! Looks pretty dank inside. But 360 for a 480?!?! I spent 240 in July on a 390 which has pretty much the same performance. But overall nice job!

+1 for mini-ITX! The side panel graphics look nice, are they vinyl skins?

Yep, vehicle grade vinyl

Personally, I don't care for these builds. They are functionally advertisements for your "Righteous rigs". PCPP is for DIY build computers, not company ads. At least post pictures of the build process if you post it at all. Great PCs, just not in the right context.

In no way is this hating on your company. Love the builds, just don't think they belong on PCPP.

There are progress pictures. You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that. If I am in violation of any TOS let me know. I don't want to upset anyone. I am not linking to my store anywhere . These are all individual unique builds.

I don't think you are violating any TOS. Awesome builds, just would like to see more of the build. Not against system builders at all, just like seeing the build, ya know? Seriously awesome PCs.

1 or 2 progress photos is not a build make

I have to sell black boxes, but these are what I love doing. People don't buy these colourful rigs, so they are just my playthings. They are based on the same parts as the boxes to keep costs down nd provide a bit of promotion.
