Old Shell, New Guts

Build Description

Gaming Rig, Basically upgraded for Warzone since the Xbox was not sufficient. It was difficult finding parts in stock during the pandemic, I was planning to try my first AMD build but the mid-range Mobo's were non-existent and I thought my existing parts would be more compatible staying with Intel like my old water cooler, ended up having to upgrade everything anyways.The Wife was thrilled!!!

Favorite Feature

Nothing specific, didn't care about RGB at first because its just cosmetic but it is growing on me, my son is jealous his build doesn't have any.
