UPDATE During some off time I was able to build a psu shroud, gpu backplate, And i/o cover from acrylic. I spray painted them black for a simple clean look but in the future I will definitely attempt a more advanced look.
I started this build a month or so after my long time computer I bought from Best Buy. (I was young and foolish, I'm sorry all pcmasterracers) The machine was great but after 5 years of constant use the cpu started to fail on me. I looked around for pre-built as I knew nothing about computers and could not find a build I liked.I wanted my own sense of customization. I began to do my research on everything about computers parts and how they work. Bringing us to today, my project Magenta. Soon enough I will have the parts for a custom water-cooled cpu and gpu loop also picking up a secondary card for buttery smooth 4k gaming.
I would highly recommend the parts that I used in this build, although next time I would use a 240mm or 280mm radiator instead of the h80i which is a 120mm only. Grabbing another SSD and m.2 would greatly increase the speeds of this system as well and I plan to do so in the future.
I'm unsure at this moment which my next cpu upgrade will be I am quite heavily into gaming/streaming but also content creation. With the new update of Ryzen and x299 platform my decision will be made later once the full details are released, I am mainly looking for a cpu that can provide endless frames and also excel in multithreaded workloads.
I will post pictures and keep the build up to date as I progress
Thank you for reading!
P.S. - the power supply was already pre-owned from a mining rig powering 4 Radeon 280x's.
