Big Ferocious PC (BFPC)

Build Description

I started building this machine 2 years ago, and have upgrading part by part until I got to where I am now. I built this monster PC mainly for gaming, with the SUPER light YouTube production on the side. I play anything from Forza Horizon 4, to Fortnite, to Immortals: Fenyx Rising. I also take the road down nostalgia lane and play some Bloons TD6. Although gaming is its main purpose, I'm doing online school on it too, as I do not own a laptop. As for future upgrades, I'm looking into waiting until DDR5 becomes mainstream, as both my motherboard and CPU are perfectly fine right now. I could go with an i9 10900K or a R7 5800X, but that's just not worth my money for the maybe 10-15% performance uplift. If anyone is wondering how the GPU hybrid kit does, I have never seen the GPU core above 50-55 degrees C when playing games (keep in mind, the fans are only running at about 40-50%, so its nice and quiet too). As for the Galahad AIO I have in here, it cools my 5GHz 9700k very well, have never seen it above 70 degrees C. Don't mind my crummy cable management, this case is good, but not stellar for cable management. But then again, I do have extension cables so 100% of the regular PSU cables in the back of the case.

Favorite Feature

I like the hybrid cooler for the 3090. It really helps fill the case, adding another AIO and more tubes to give the PC a more "full" look.
