Gaming/workstation build

Build Description

There were many reasons for this build. This was a build that me and my brother did together and with the release of Ark 2 next year, we wanted a pc that would be able to run it. Also, we never had a gaming pc, so this is our first one and we thought we’d get a fairly high end pc to make it worth the while. Another reason my and my brother built this PC was because I wanted to get better at 3d modeling and animation in blender. Before building the computer, I was working on an intel I5 MacBook and it was cutting it, so I was really excited to get a computer to learn more things. I’m also thinking of doing YouTube on the PC and start a gaming channel, and maybe try a bit of streaming at some point. As of now, our build has been completed for about two weeks and it runs at good temperatures and it’s powerful. The games we have so far are mostly free games like valorant and rocket league, but we also have minecraft and Green Hell, but we’re thinking of getting Inside The Backrooms and Valheim.

Favorite Feature

My favorite feature are the Corsair SP120 fans. Me and my brother decided to go for a blue and black build to match the keyboard, so we had the aio cooler lights and mouse light changes to blue, but we decided to replace the stock NZXT fans with SP120 fans to add more blue lights into the system, and i personally think that it looks awesome.
