The Nacelle

Build Description

It was time to upgrade and I wanted a computer powerfully enough to easily handle triple-a games, then I found a really unique case. I let this case lay the ground work and located some excellent new hardware, using Cyberpunk 2077's requirements as a guideline for some minimums. During the build I encountered a design flaw in the case, making the graphics card installation very difficult. Had I known about that, I would have found a way to clear the path before mounting the motherboard. I also could have saved on the cable extensions that I bought with the case as they were completely unneeded. I really love unique case designs, I feel like they can make your set up stand out compared to all the standard RGB boxes.

Favorite Feature

The case allows for a unique looking, but still powerful build with good cable management options.
