The Red Rider

Build Description

This was my first ever PC build! After weeks of research, I decided to finally pull the trigger! Some of the parts were gifted as birthday or Christmas gifts, some were purchased used/second hand, and some I got them before the prices got higher! I am able to run CoD Modern Warfare on high graphics at a steady 60-70+ FPS, Forza Horizon 5 on High graphics between 50-60 FPS. Need for Speed 2015 constant 60+ FPS. This is all without overclocking. I tried overclocking, but I am scared that somehow I can damage my PC. I don't remember the specific numbers, but when I overclocked I was able to get CoD to a constant 80+ FPS on high graphics. FH5 on Ultra/Extreme graphics steady 60+ FPS. I've had it for about a week and a half, so I don't have many games. Plan on getting some more and running more benchmarks! I am getting red PSU cable extensions to make the system look nicer, I am also getting a vertical mount for my GPU which should make it look better. Once all these upgrades are made I will upload more pictures of the entire setup!

Favorite Feature

I like the RGBs on the fans, cooler, and ram. When I took the picture the PC was still booting up so I didn't sync the RGB colors. But after I installed the OS and downloaded RGB Software I synced the RGB to red, obviously.
