The Gentleman's Workshop #MicroCenterMadness

by Anthony T Posted on: 3/30/2021

Build Description

Being both an avid gamer & online entrepreneur, I wanted to create a rustic & minimal space that could fit the purpose of both passions. I decided to build a workshop style desk from Douglas Fir wood & use that to begin building the theme of my setup. I wanted it to come off with a "Gentleman" vibe, which is why I decided to name it "The Gentleman's Workshop". When building out my PC, I wanted RGB but a very humble RGB that would blend well with the warm tones of the Edison bulbs and space. That's why I decided to choose orange, however, these can be changed at anytime to switch up the aesthetics. I'm sure you also notice the Space X touch within the case. I chose this as my Kraken Z73 background to stay inspired when I'm in work mode.

Now that my build is complete, when I'm not running my E-commerce businesses online, I enjoy playing titles like Star Citizen, Hell Let Loose, Flight Simulator VR, & occasionally World of Warcraft. I also enjoy just about any other common FPS & MMORPG.

As future changes to the build go, I would maybe consider swapping out the Motherboard for something higher quality and more updated but for now, my MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi gets the job done!

Overall, I'm extremely happy with the build and will most likely keep it minimal and clean. Less is more here!

Favorite Feature

I would say my favorite thing about this build is by far the Lian Li o11 Dynamic case paired with the Radeon Sapphire Nitro + 6900XT. I love being able to see the components through the glass and the Radeon Sapphire is one beautiful card to look at.
