Description

First ever custom PC I've made. I've been waiting to do this for around 5 years back before RGB was all the rage. This PC has currently been built as a gaming machine and I focused the build around a 1080ti. So far it runs PUBG at ultra at around 90-100fps average and will basically run anything else at max settings. Only game i've had a little struggle with was battlefield 1 so far. I wanted to go with red and green and black as my primary colour scheme for this build and while i wan't intending on getting the gigabyte 1080ti (planned for the msi gaming x card), it does the job i wanted it to without ruining the colour scheme.

Part Reviews

CPU

Runs like a champ, yet to try any overclocking but so far so good

CPU Cooler

On quiet mode it stays pretty quiet but anything louder and it'll really run up your ears

Motherboard

No issues with the board

Memory

Newegg shipping did me over took over an extra week and a half to arrive than the prescribed shipping time but otherwise runs like a champ at the overclocked speed of 3200mHz

Storage

Runs like a champ only issue with this SSD is the damn logo. On this case I can only mount it one way and as a result the damn thing is always upside down

Video Card

Super quiet and runs like a beast

Case

This Case is probs the best choice I made about this build. It allowed spacious room for all my components and cable management. Only thing I haven't tried with this case is the CAM smart stuff cause i like the temps I get now as it is.

Power Supply

This is a 4-5 year old PSU i bought off a mate around 4 years ago but so far no power shortages or anything of the like. Might catch fire one day tho...

Monitor

Very neat monitor, also several years old, used to play off a laptop

Keyboard

Several years old, runs like a champ

Mouse

Oldest component in my build by far, 5 years old and no issues with it so far.

Speakers

Bought this after trading $140 worth of dora the explora nintendo games to JBHIFI and after 4 years, its still running like a champ. Audio quality is superb and amazing.

I'm a little confused as to why you mounted your rad like that. It looks like you are forced to keep the tubes from pressing down on the graphics card. Additionally, I think the pump is having to work harder in that position. (I'm not a expert though.)

the color scheme is wack to me, but to each their own. That case is fabulous though.

The backplate doesn't actually play a huge role on these cards believe it or not and theres no sag so it doesn't really matter. I don't really like the colour of the gpu shroud but a the time i had to compromise cause of shipping costs and availability in different stores
