My 1st build

by EllisBooker Posted on: 9/27/2021

Build Description

Needed a faster Ubuntu Linux rig than the i5 I'd been using for years. Mostly this was needed because I'm doing audio and video editing for some clients. Simply moved my 256Gb M.2 and 500Gb SSD drive into the new (lovely) mid tower. Best of all, the Ryzen 5700G vastly sped up my video rendering from 1 hour on the old setup to 3 minutes, 40 seconds on the new one!

Favorite Feature

I was dubious about a tower with tempered glass on one side, but am really enjoying it, especially with the 3 RGB fans.
