Starry Night

Build Description

Built this rig because I always wanted to get into the PC gaming space. Now looking back I can't believe it took me this long. I play mostly FPS games like COD, Borderlands and FarCry, I also have put a good amount of hours into Skyrim and the Middle Earth Series. Currently playing through Halo for the first time (always been a Playstation user) I plan on upgrading CPU and Motherboard when AMD moves to AM5 next year.

Favorite Feature

I think my favorite thing in the build is the Noctua NH-D15s. I use to have a 360MM AIO from Corsair that did the job but the pump was very loud and distracting. I get the same if not better temps from this air cooler and it is miles quieter.
