Description

This was my first build in almost four years and will be used for anime, development, and gaming. It features white and black components with cyan and magenta lighting. Let me know if you have any questions!

Part Reviews

Motherboard

The motherboard looks remarkable in a white case with its black PCB and subtle design. As a bonus, saving a PCI slot with integrated Wi-Fi is highly welcomed. The only issue I found was the lack of documentation surrounding the top M.2 slot — it shares a screw with the armour.

Video Card

This is the only part which survived from my prior build. It should last until the next generation of video cards in 2020. I was not sure whether the black backplate would work with the new theme, but I am happy with how it turned out.

Case

There's not much I can about this case except for... get it! At first, I was unsure about the aluminium, but in person, it looks far better than expected. Each of the case's ports has a mirrored and bevelled finish, and it can house a healthy number of fans for a warm climate.

Case Fan

While the result looks amazing and performs well, the installation was nightmare fuel. Screwing Corsair fans in for the first time is painful because they are not threaded. With a total of 40 screws, I ended up with a few blisters and was close to having a red build.

What fan curse do you use for the H100i? Trying to find one myself that keeps the CPU cool and doesn't sounds like a Jet engine in the process.

All of the fans are set to quiet, and the pump is set to balanced.

How is the monitor? I’ve been thinking between this or the lg 34inch which is essentially the same but 144hz. Haven’t seen any prices for this one either so I’m not sure If its reasonable or not. Ty!

It's a great monitor! I recommend talking to Dell on live chat and getting a better price if it isn't already on sale.
