Winter Build

by Lordd5000 Posted on: 8/1/2020

Build Description

I built my first computer through Microcenter several years ago, and now was a good time for an upgrade. I originally bought a Asus Dual 1070, the initial single white component of my build. This time around, I matched all other parts to it, most of which were unavailable until very recently. I use this PC to game and stream, most notably League of Legends, in which I have reached Challenger tier. I also play games like Rocket League, GTA V, CSGO, Valorant, and others with my friends. I'll be upgrading soon to the new 4000 series Ryzen CPUS and 3000 series Nvidia graphics cards, both of which will be water cooled.

Favorite Feature

My favorite part of this build is my case, it's the inspiration for the winter them, having blue accents all around it, and having a very different design compared to most cases which are usually just some variation of a square/rectangle. This case has very interesting angles in the metal, and fits everything I need to in it. It also has a very nice side panel that doesn't show everything like most tempered glass cases, just the main parts. Originally released around 5 years ago, I don't see myself using a different case for a very long time.
