Strix Z490-I Gaming

Build Description

It was time for an upgrade to some newer hardware and I wanted to build a small form-factor rig this time with an RTX 3080 or 3080ti graphic card

Favorite Feature

The Corsair Crystal 280X case is easily the highlight of my rig. The tempered glass panels allow easy access to view my RGB enhanced internals. The dual chamber layout helps keep the PSU and SSD/HDD's hidden for a cleaner look plus the case is small enough to sit on my desk
