Description

What I built this for:

I put together this rig in order to do some light gaming (World of Warcraft / Tomb Raider + Streamlabs OBS at the same time being about as tough as I'll be on it)

What worked well:

Really almost everything worked out of the box, I have not dinked around with overclocking yet to see how far I can go... But currently even at max settings in WoW for example I'm getting between 80-100 fps in 1080p depending on if I'm in open world or inside buildings.

Problems I encountered:

I had a brief issue with my RGB fans not lighting up on the front of the MasterBox Lite 5 RGB, but that was just because I didn't pay enough attention to which was the Pin 1 on the single RGB header that was available with this MoBo (I had the "triangle" on the fan's cable connector pointed to Pin 4). The system still runs pretty quiet, but does not appear to have too great of airflow (I was going more for the looks).

good 1080p gaming rig, you should try to reroute the PSU cables and make it look cleaner. Some cable management could go a long way

Thanks, it definitely works decently, I'm sure if I get a bit more fancy and better with the cable management it will work a tiny bit better in terms of airflow / cooling.

More pics, and maybe some cable management before the CMP (Cable Management Patrol) show up...
