#Bitwit All RGB, No Custom Cables

by Dave T Posted on: 7/30/2021

Build Description

I've always wanted to build a PC, especially a watercooled one, so I went all out for my first build! I mainly built it for gaming and VR, but I also want to get into streaming or recording a bit. Currently, my main 5 games are GTA V, Dead By Daylight, Fall Guys, Beat Saber, and Phasmophobia (it's even better in VR).There won't be a need to upgrade most of my parts for at least 5 years, but it is expected to last me 10 years with proper maintenance and partial upgrades around 5 years. I'm sorry Bitwit, I still haven't replaced the PCIe/Motherboard cables with custom ones!! Total cost of everything ended up being close to $6000

Favorite Feature

I specifically wanted a lot of RGB areas so I can keep customizing it without changing physical parts, and the water-cooling keeps everything cool enough for high overclocking! I am still the #2 3DMark Time Spy graphics scorer (23rd overall) with an 11900K and 3080 Ti combination (#1 seems to be using LN2): https://bit.ly/3dmarkdave1482
