Build Description

Left PC gaming back when the XBox first came out and stopped building PC's and just gamed on my XBoxs over the years. This is the first year after having my XBox glod for over 16 years and I am not getting the newest release due to joining back into the PC world.

I custom built this PC last spring starting out with an AMD Ryzen 7 and then upgraded the bios on the MSI X470 Gaming Pro MB to allow me to drop the AMD Ryzen 9 3900x in the system. I am running the Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3200 4x8gb ram. As for the Hard drives I have an NVME 1tb, Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500gb, 2x Samsung SSD 860 EVO1 TB, Samsung 8TB external, WD 2TB external, EVGA RTX 2080 TI FTW3, all cooled with a EKWB custom loop with the water block on the GPU and CPU flowing into 2x360mm radiators separate for each unit running the blood red coolant. Power supply is the EVGA SuperNOVA 1300G2. I was able to run some of the black and red cabling but need to order more for the video card. I am also waiting for the 3pin DRGB controller to come back in stock for the LED control for the EKWB water blocks and pump. Hope you enjoy the build. Removed the top and front cover to help with the airflow through the radiators.

All of this was build in the NZXT 710i case.

Favorite Feature

Finally did a custom loop.
