JD's build

by Fotosbystu Posted on: 1/3/2022

Build Description

This is my son's first gaming computer. We built it together. He mainly plays Fortnite, Roblox, some Steam games, and keeps Discord open on monitor 2. The PC averages about 30 deg C at idle. He has seen peak temps of 70-75. Future upgrades may include 32 more GB of RAM, and maybe a few additional RGB fans for the top and rear. We are in search of a larger desk so we can elevate the rig and show it off!

Favorite Feature

We like the RGB components and the challenge of building it. Having it turn on first try was a proud moment!
