Raven Build

Build Description

I built this rig with gaming in mind. Upgraded from an i7-8700k, msi gaming pro carbon z390 motherboard and msi gtx 1070ti oc. Built for games like Sea of Thieves, Assassin's Creed Valhalla/Odyssey and Modern Warfare to name a few. Cpu overclocked to 5.1ghz while GPU is running on stock speeds. Perfect for what I was aiming for. Playing on Msi gaming monitor 1ms response time 1440p at 165hz refresh rate. This is my second build I've done so far and though I'm no expert, I'm definitely digging it so far.

Favorite Feature

My favorite features of this build are the no frills RTX 3070 Founders Edition graphics card and the ROG Strix Z490-E motherboard aesthetics.
