Maingear Stealth Build

Build Description

Built this stealthy boi for PC gaming with little noise but much power. The Noctua NH-D15 is damn near silent, and the triple-fan 2070 Super runs most games very quietly. RGB wasn't much of a concern (it sits below my desk) but the built-in lights on the motherboard and Maingear case logo are nice!

Mostly am using it for Call of Duty Warzone right now (runs it with ray-tracing on at 144 fps, and never goes above 60 C, if that)

Most of the parts came from Micro Center, but I got some really good discounts for the motherboard and GPU on Amazon Warehouse deals and Newegg's eBay page

Favorite Feature

The NH-D15 absolutely blows me away (pun not intended) with how quiet it is running at high speeds
