PC built for a customized office

Build Description

This is a budget PC built on purpose for a home office in a new construction by Toll Brothers. The design of the 4000 square feet house is towards the modern style in the interior decoration. The office room has a full suite of barn style wooden furniture. This PC has to fit naturally into a customized ladder desk between two windows. The RGB is a must-to-have feature to add some live and modern element to the office. The spectrum theme shown in the photo was not a good fit, but the white theme was perfect. The hardware itself is not important and could be an overkill for routine office work.

Favorite Feature

RGB lighting.

The quality of the material including the sheet metal and glass was great. The electronics is problematic. There are two control channels of RGB. Channel 2 does not work and the customer service is non existing. I have to do some mod to line up channel 1 with all the RGB lights.
