Description

I use this high end beast for epic gaming sessions on demanding games like Minecraft. I utilize my quad core processor to edit cinematic Old School Runescape music videos on my classic Windows Movie Maker software. I'm undefeated in competitive games like League of Legends since I get the smoothest experience with my 144hz monitors. All thanks to my new $3000 gaming setup, I can experience pc gaming to the fullest.

In all seriousness though, I use this computer, Stella, for games like Rust, CsGo, Battlegrounds, etc.. all while recording my funny moments to share on YouTube or stream on Twitch. The only way I could be happier is with more monitors.. I could totally utilize more visual space.

Note: I'm not rich by any means at all, I've drooled over the idea of my own gaming desktop for years and waited until I could afford exactly what I had in mind. It was made possible by Christmas money, tax returns and Twitch donations.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great for content creating.

CPU Cooler

Cool and quiet. How could it get better then that? Oh yeah, it's RGB.

Memory

Memory is memory, I love the slow blinking red LED's.

Storage

The price point is totally worth it to someone like me who doesn't want to have to decide where to save things. It's more then enough space for everything I keep on my desktop. I only use an extra external hard-drive for recording.

Video Card

10/5 stars. It's beautiful, quiet, RGB and I get well over 60 frames on every game I play on max graphics settings.

Case

This was great for a first time builder, everything fits nicely with plenty of wiggle room. I love that you can buy an additional RGB strip that matches the outside of the case lights. The RGB colors aren't too customizable, only a few color options but still really nice to have. Comes with 2 case fans. Looks sleek.

Monitor

The best bang for your buck as far as gaming monitors in my opinon.

Keyboard

This is all you'll ever want or need in one perfect keyboard. You don't have to choose between Mechanical or Membrane keys because it brings the best of both worlds to your tabletop. It also includes macros, a double-wide space bar and the most beautiful and customizable RGBs on the market.

Mouse

Very comfy to use and accurate to play on. Looks sleek, and love that I can change the color. All of the buttons are very satisfying to use, highly recommend!

Headphones

The audio quality is great, no complaints there at all. The mic is nice and crisp but I have a problem with everyone not hearing me right away when I play different games or join different discords and they have to turn my volume up.

to get the best performance out of the card, yes. If that isn't the biggest issue for you then you can just leave it where it sits :o

B e a u t i f u l build +1 but quick question, if you're doing content creation, why didn't you go for ryzen 7?

+1, Nice build, like the color theme that you have. I do have one question as to why you are stringing the power cable just right below the top fan to plugin the top left plugin. Will that cord not run on the back side of the case? i would assume there it a cutout in the top left of the case for the power cable to run through. I was just wondering though....

Better data transfert between the CPU and the GPU instead of passing by the chipset... better FPS, reduced latency, etc.

Do you think it would be a noticeable difference?

Actually yes, the one in which your GPU is plugged in is a PCIe 16x slot running at 8x. Top PCIe 16x slot is running at 16x unless you run SLI/CrossFire where it will split 8/8 (for dual GPUs) or 8/4/4 (triple GPUs)

For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot. ^From your motherboard manual

BTW I also noticed that on picture 10 the 2 fans on the radiator was set as an exhaust pulling air from the inside of the case to the exterior of it. But it also seem to be an older picture with some G.Skill Trident Z instead of the Corsair Vengeance RAM. So in the end I don't know if the issue has been resolved or it was intended that way as I cannot see the top fans orientation.

The manual for the radiator said to install is that way.. should the fans be on the opposite side or are they backwards or what?

Ok Captain Naysay. There are a lot of "nothing special too" builds on here, I hope you've got an entirely neutral, somewhat cynical comment reserved for all of them also.
