THE KRAKEN

Build Description

I'm actually submitting this build while my girlfriend is laying on the hospital bed in front of me having her first contractions going into labor. This is one of the main reasons The Kraken was built. I wanted to have a quick home PC that would able to handle major video edits for our daughter and family growing up. I also enjoy playing games from time to time and if you aren't on max settings, well you aren't playing it right! I look forward to this PC serving my familys home video edits and my gaming habits for years to come.

Favorite Feature

I absolutely love the sleek NZXT case and the tempered front and side glass panels. They are slightly tinted which keeps it nice and clean looking but you can still see all the RGB on the inside. Oh! and the cool mirrored heat sink which allows me to make awkward faces while taking photos.
