High End Gaming PC 2022

by Brandon S Posted on: 8/3/2022

Build Description

The PC was built for gaming and general use! The parts included are high end intended to play games on all ultra settings for the near future. I can't wait to play Halo Infinite, Elden Ring and upcoming games such as Hogwarts Legacy and Starfield. Learning points for me was 1) the iCUE 100i water cooling kit comes with a commander core. 2) 3 pin case fans are not compatible with the commander core and are generally harder to control. I ended up returning the extra commander core I bought and swapped out the 3 pin iCue fans with 4 pin icue fans. 3) If downloading Windows 11, check the motherboard manufacturing site on how to install! You may need to enable TPM in the bios setting

Favorite Feature

I really enjoy the commander core fan hub. It is very nice to be able to control the fan settings in windows.
