Trying to decide between two builds

Maestro.III

7 months ago

I am trying to decide between two builds right now and I am also open to any changes being made on the builds as well. I would like to avoid liquid cooling if any changes are made to the build. The prices are very similar to each other. The only difference between them is the cases.

All thoughts and opinions are welcome on how the builds are and what I could possibly change.

  • Why have you got 2 144Hz panels, or 24GB RAM?
  • Newer HDD
  • Airflow optimised case
  • Better PSU, CPU cooler and motherboard

Nice. I was wodering the same thing for the RAM xD

I thought maybe he would want 2 144hz monitors for wide angle smooth gameplay or something?

To be honest I really just wanted RAM. I was aiming for a case that came with pre-installed RGB fans. Thanks for this suggestion. Also thank you for getting a better PSU, CPU cooler, and motherboard on there.

I have no opinion on the case, but I’d get a better CPU cooler. Maybe Scythe Mugen 5 or Thermalright Macho.

Here is a case with great airflow and pre installed rgb fans.

I don't know much about computer building yet but I was under the impression that ram only work in pair. Would the third stick of ram even work on his own?
