Build Description

I've had this computer for about 6 years, but over the time I think I've changed every part except the power supply! I use it to work and play games. The best bit is honestly having a 27" monitor, that has been a huge improvement. I also managed to snag a 3060 Ti, which works well at 1440p.

Favorite Feature

The Fractal case is great - they are a great company with very good customer support. I added a Noctua fan which has kept the processor temperatures down - it doesn't get hotter than about 70.
