Black Ice

Build Description

This is primarily a gaming rig. I started with a Powerspec pc 3 years ago with the mindset of upgrading as I went along. I soon became fascinated with RGB, Water Cooling and bigger and better with better cooling, visuals and performance. I plan on soon upgrading the GPU to a 3080 and putting a new waterblock on the board. I run a small twitch channel where I stream games that I like to place such as the Dark Souls series and retro 3D and 2D games. I am a huge open world gamer playing Witcher 3, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Borderlands 3, Yakuza 0 and many more. I have become obsessed with bigger and better while being budget friendly. If I win a gift card i'll think of a 3090, but the 3080 is the perfect balance of price to performance coming from my 1080 ti.

Favorite Feature

I love how the PETG tubing turned out and how clean and straight the tubes became. The EKWB Reflection Block on the front is the star of the show with it displaying all of the ports and being a real talking point when discussing the loop and the pc itself.
