My first gaming pc

by Parsa S Posted on: 8/8/2022

Build Description

I needed to build a gaming rig as the Legion laptop (2060) I was using was getting cooked running even basic games.

Favorite Feature

The pc runs relatively quiet and cool - might be because we're still in winter down here. Initially I got a bit freaked out when I noticed the GPU fans were not running, but realised it has the zero rpm feature.
