The Pool PC

Build Description

By day I'm a cybersecurity expert and consultant so I needed a pc to handle that type of work. I'm also a big time gamer that wants to do some streaming and content creation on the side. In short, I wanted this to be a multipurpose rig that can do regular office work, gaming, and streaming a few times a week. I mostly play Super Smash Bros Ultimate competitively and PUBG or Warzone when I want to just chill with friends. Currently I have just started my Instagram for my own tech and gaming brand (@Roczgaming). My vision is to grow this name as its own brand where my team can create some outreach within our community through gaming. Provide an outlet and means for kids to network if they want to get into this industry, IT, or development and just be an overall cool thing to be a part of.

Favorite Feature

Favorite feature hands down is the case! I had chosen 3 cases to go with and just couldn't decide, until I realized that the one in this set up is literally the best bang for your buck. It Includes 3 LL120 Corsair fans ($130) and iCUE Commander PRO Smart RGB Lighting and Fan Speed Controller ($75).

....
The whole case is $160
Savings=no brainer
