3700x + 5700xt, now featuring a cool color scheme

Build Description

Mostly built for gaming although I do other stuff like cad with it occasionally. It was originally built as a "budget" rig but I have slowly upgraded parts over time. Originally it had a Ryzen 5 1600 and an RX580, now it has a Ryzen 7 3700x and a 5700xt and runs every game I play really well, although the most demanding game I commonly play is Minecraft with shaders on. The Corsair 4000d is miles better than my old Thermaltake Versa case, similar size but so much more space inside for both cable management and parts. Main thing I would have done differently is get a bigger SSD because while I do have 2tb of hard drive storage, having more than 250gb of SSD storage would be nice. Overall I think it looks fantastic and is a great performer for the price.

Favorite Feature

I love the rgb fans shining through the mesh in the front
