NZXT case build 1 and 2

by Phong V Posted on: 1/13/2021

Build Description

PC 1 I mainly use general purpose and playing pc games.
PC 2 I made for my spouse to work on and also play pc games with me.

Most of the games I play are found on Steam, Blizzard, Epic Games, LoL, Valorant, etc.

I'm a OIF/OEF Vet myself, my teenage kids wanted to get into PC gaming (they're "upgrading" from consoles/Fortnite) and I come from an automotive repair background so putting together a PC is trivial in comparison to an engine or fine tuning suspension for an auto cross track.

Anywho, future upgrades to include the new 6800 XT or some 3080's were available but I'll deal with having 5700 XT's for now as a place holder.
Almost returned both these NZXT cases (still within 30day window) and buy 2 new Lian Li O11 Dynamic Mini cases + 12*LL120 case fans but too lazy to take apart both PC components JUST to have the NEW case.

Favorite Feature

RGB is fun to change around.

only difference between the H510i is it includes the RGB/FAN controller and possibly an LED strip or 2. No thx, not that serious.
