After my first build I really wanted to build again but not just an ordinary pc build. I also wanted an upgrade to what I had before. Destiny being my favorite game and the one I have sunk too many hours into I figured I'd go take the theme and run with it.
This is Codename: Bungo
Bungo is what I say when I'm frustrated and I want to blame destiny devs, Bungie
First I had to draw up the plans which I couldn't find on my hard drive but I did in Gimp and measured it all out to figure out where everything would go
I didn't like the look of the large drive cage in the front part of the case so I tore it out. I then realized I needed somewhere to put my hard drive so I bought a drive cage off amazon.
I ended up cutting the front panel out twice because on the first cut the titan mark lined broke off.
I also needed new front I/O because I tore the old case's front panel off and replaces it so I got a usb 3.0 and audio I/O board from ebay
The build had already been torn apart and put back together so many times at this point because each new problem that I created with the case needed to be solved to make a finished product and most case mods that I made couldn't hold a computer while I did them but I didn't want to just leave the parts in a box and be computerless.
I am aware that the power button is sticking out the side... Like I said this case mod has progressed slowly overtime to make sure I got things right, but I was tired of waiting to post it because all the major aesthetic changes have been done.
The last picture was before I had the Fan mounting bracket at the front of the case
All these parts work great and at first my RGB ram modules wouldn't work with RGB fusion so if you plan to have a glowing computer think about compatibility first.
And I'm wondering if I should get a different Graphics card, one that matches the white aesthetic?
I picked this when the Ryzen 2 CPUs had just recently launched, with my intentions to do video editing as well as gaming I wanted a high core count for a lower price. It works great and over clocks very well
I picked this motherboard because I want Ryzen 2 support right out of the box and this was just before B450 boards had been released. Other than wishing I had waited a little to save a few bucks the Motherboard works great and syncing the RGB was somewhat strange with installing app center but other than that the bios is great and runs all my hardware smoothly
I went with this ram because it had the frequency I wanted and it had RGB so automatic performance boost right?
At the time I picked my parts GPU prices were still coming down and this was the best bang for the buck option. The RX 580 works like a beast and has given me no issues and works best with AMD's Freesync.
