Baja Blast

Build Description

My first build! Built for my birthday of 2021 , this PC was loaded with the best looking components that I could find within reason for a high refresh rate ultrawide 1440p gaming focused rig. Replacing my 2015 MacBook pro 15 ;) I was Hoodwinked into the world of pc gaming and the many branches that it contains such as keyboards, headphones, mice and monitors etc. It was an absolute blast to build and I am personally most proud of the GPU... I camped for 12 hours for it at my local BB for it. Temps are under 75 C for both gpu and cpu running all but the most demanding games... looking at Cyberpunk... at max settings. This build is my pride and joy and will bring me fun for years to come.

Favorite Feature

I really like the overall aesthetic of this build, need to find time to flip the medallions on the fans and further tidy up the black cables from the mobo, Maybe paint them? But my and my wallets favorite part about this build has to be the RTX 3070 FE at MSRP.
