Corsair Crystal 680 Build

Build Description

New gaming rig to upgrade from 11 year old 932 HAF. I've been waiting to build my PC for a while now. Researching the parts was both fun and time consuming. Good thing micro center had everything I wanted except for the 3080. That will come in due time!

Favorite Feature

Love the case! Looking to upgrade GPU to a 3080 eventually
