Thermaltake Tower 100 mITX Gaming System v1

Build Description

I've been wanting to free up some space on my desk but hadn't found an ITX case that I liked until MicroCenter came through with the Thermaltake Tower 100. Once I brought it home and mounted a B450I Aorus Pro motherboard inside, I moved my Ryzen 5 5600x and EVGA 3070 Ti FTW3 into this case. I also took the opportunity to upgrade my RAM to some G.Skill Trident Z Neo modules. I play Rocket League and Rainbow Six Siege online, but my best experience has come from playing AAA games in 1440p with this machine, such as Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Watch Dogs Legion. Temperatures are generally good in this case. The CPU runs the hottest with the Corsair 120 AIO I have in it. In the future, I may swap it out for a be quiet! air cooler.

Favorite Feature

I love that you can admire the PC from 3 sides like you would view an aquarium tank.
