Description

This is my first PC build from scratch. The pc I used before I would just buy used parts and shove them into my refurbished PC I had. Really happy with the performance, used mainly to game but I also do graphic design on the side.

Reason I went Intel over Ryzen was because I've had this processor for a while before the whole Ryzen exploding in popularity

Everything went smoothly except for the main problems which was with this much RGB, and me being a pretty novice builder, the cable management was a nightmare. Once it was complete it was super fulfilling though.

Not the happiest with the case, might change it out in the future.

Part Reviews

CPU

Gets decently hot at 5ghz but overall no problems

CPU Cooler

Got because it's white

Motherboard

Picked because not many other motherboards have white on it.

Memory

Love the look of these sticks, really good at brightening up the build as well

Storage

First ever NVME, and I was surprised with how fast it is, could never go back

Video Card

Does everything I need it to do

Power Supply

Performs well, haven't had any issues

Case Fan

Pain in the *** to install when you are installing 6 of them but the ICUE software works pretty well

Monitor

Very happy with these, I've had no issues. I have two mounted next to each others and the colors are great

Mouse

First wireless mouse ever and I have to say it's fantastic. Great response time and long battery life.

Custom

Very crisp audio, love being able to move it out of the way when I'm not talking to anyone.

Custom

When you buy it you think it's going to be really cool but then soon realize it's pretty gimmicky after a while.

That side panel is pretty sweet, but looks a little low res in the pictures. Does it look like that in person?

It looks a lot better in person, it's hard to get a good picture on my phone. Also it kinda is low res since it's 1024x1280. It also depends on the image you are using

I see. Whats the interface for the side panel? USB? HDMI?

Though the build is awesome with or without the side panel! The all-white builds are always cool, and I think you did a great job! +1

Thank you! It's an HDMI to DVI that you plug into the back.

This looks so clean honestly. Love the all white with the Royal Z's, and those cable extensions/back plate are definitely a nice touch.
