My dad and I built the room together and worked on everything together. We hangout here, watch movies, to shows, to gaming. It has been a long journey that took a lot of time but it was a lot of fun and well worth it in the end. The only thing I would change regarding the pc is the motherboard and go with a z590 but this was a year ago when z590 did not exsist. Not a fan of current mobo looks but it does the job and then some overall. Really happy with everything

I wanted to go with a white theme so I could use the RGB to make any color theme I wanted. The upgrade was the same, just keep the majority of the system white in order to maintain the ability to make any color theme I want. It’s a gaming rig most importantly. I enjoy first person shooter games mostly. I’ve played almost the entire far cry series on it. I also enjoy games similar to GTA and Watchdogs as well. The only upgrade I desperately want for it is a GPU. It has a 2070 super currently which is very capable. I would like to put a white card in it of course and at the same time, a 30 series card would be wonderful.

I'm building this pc because I was going to buy a ps5 since my ps4 is outdated but since I couldn't get a ps5 I decided to go for a pc since It will have more then 1 use other than gaming but now I can't get a gpu so I'm just stuck turning it on every day just to admire the rgb and turning it right back off. I probably should've bought the gpu first since I've been contemplating this build since like January. Other than that I love it. It has so much more use than a ps5 and I'll probably have it for longer due to the upgradability of all the components. (Images posted are screen shots from a video I took of the build)

It's been over 20 years since I've messed with computers, and i wanted to build a desktop PC. I recently decided to wade into video production, so i changed my build plan from general mid grade PC to future proof video editing PC. The most challenging part was finding a sufficient GPU for a decent price. Because of Covid lockdowns and Bitcoin mining, the GPU was the most difficult to obtain. I got screwed on Amazon once and again on Ebay. Definitely shop around and be wary of shady sellers. In fact, I'm still waiting for my GPU. It's supposed to be here tomorrow!

I had to grab and change up my budget build a little bit. All in all I was able to keep it all under $1000 (considering I already had a case and a Seagate 2TB 7200RPM HDD). The picture of the rig is just built and went through bios. Cable management was okay but I think i can pretty it up just a little bit but overall it works as intended.

Sooo the current market is rough right now so I bought everything and anything whether I needed it or not then returned what I don't use or need. However, it's been 10yrs since my last build Ryzen is all new to me and when I initially walked in to purchase parts I went in with a casual head of "ladadada building a new PC what to get what to get" not knowing it's the 5600x release and everyone is buying everything sooo I went into panic mode of "what do I get uhh excuse me sir. u got any recommendations on what to go for? Or Soo what u grabbing today? Or "wow man today is crazy what build u building?" Obviously to not sound like a noob and I kind of went off that. However, now that I've built, seen everything, and we'll informed here are the things I'd do differently.

So I been building & messing around with computers since high-school, overall been amazed by them & thought they're so cool. So over the years of having a home pre-built stock pc, I took it upon myself to start opening them and looking at the insides of what makes it. Then my freshmen year in hs I actually took 1 of them apart & customized the case by drawing cut shapes and having my father cut & paint it then I would install those tube neon lights inside the case & stuck a piece of arcylic behind the door so the cut out pieces weren't open. That's where it all began, after seeing that outcome of that I knew I loved it and always wanted to build my own 1 day. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the pc because I didn't think to take a photo of it sadly but I remember it very clearly. It was a tall case with 3 cut triangles on 1 side with a fan in the middle of them. The paint was all dark blue with black speckles all over, it was my favorite case. Anyways when I was working I kinda got lost from computers and got into sneakers therefore I was spending pay checks on sneakers instead of pc parts. I would always play world of warcraft on the pc whenever it would run cause the pc wasn't top tier to spec it was still stock in the inside just fancy on the outside. After the fact I got out of pc & switched to sneakers I obviously stopped playing pc because I would work & school. After those 5 years at bestbuy my friend & brother asked if I wanted to play world of warcraft again & I said yeah sure. So I would play on this dell laptop my mom got me for school & to be honest it ran really well & to this day I still have that dell laptop & it still runs amazing. The laptop isn't that old prolly 3years or so. Then I was like I need to build a desktop, I always wanted the alienware area 51 alx desktop but couldn't afford 1 brand new so I recently purchase 1 on ebay for $200 used and with a bit of damage. I was always looking at alienware pics because I thought they were so cool but just over priced for me. So when it arrived in a large box that weighted like 90 pounds I was star strucked when I opened it. It was like a dream come true. Then over time I gamed on that then sold the internals of it and purchased everything else that makes a pc besides the case, brand new. After that happened I had a daughter then moved in with my girlfriend but couldn't bring the pc over because it was too huge so I was forced to leave it at my parents house. Eventually I was able to convince her to bring it over if I put it into a smaller case, so I put it in 1 of those open cases because just a stand that holds all the components together. Then time passes & I put it in a lian li o11 dynamic razer edition case but it has to sit on a chair so it not taking up space. I had to customize the doors for this case because I have a noctua cooler which is huge & the glass doors wouldn't clear them so I brought 2 sheets of black tinted arcylic & cut them to shape & took the bracket off the glass door & slap them on the arcylic doors with a hole cut where it wasn't clearing & now fits. So here's my pc that was a mission to complete but finally is done for now. For updates in the future, I am currently now looking for a new motherboard to update the msi board I have cause for me it makes the build look kinda cheap lol but it works great & the board has been good to me. But I do wanna upgrade that to a Asus rog maximus xi formula z390 board because I want the usb c front panel to work on the case & I want built in wifi instead of having that extra card for wifi.

I use this pc for my school work and gaming and talking to friends and all the hobbies I have. I multitask a lot, and the orientation of my double monitors really helps with that. I'm not a pro at anything to be honest. I stream just for the fun of it, and I game just to spend time with friends. My PC is capable of most things, and I have yet to come across something that puts any stress on my computer. I play games like Valorant and GTA every here and there. I also at night leave my pc on to mine crypto. It makes like 2$ only, but it adds up and is actually enough to cover the entire electricity bill of everything in my home :) I've always wanted to build my pc and have a nice setup, and while writing this, I'm just now noticing how far I really came. A few years ago, I wouldn't have even imagined my setup would look like this lol. But part by part, minor upgrades here and there really showed a big difference in the long run, which I'm grateful for. Also my We Bare Bear funkos are part of my setup, they mean a lot to me. The laptop I have on my right of my desk I don't use much since that was actually what I used to use before I had a decent PC. I also feel like there might be some controversy with the parts I have, either its cause of pricing or performance. But when I upgrade my PC I do consider having better performance but having it look good matters more to me since I'm not really doing anything that needs a lot of good specs.

This is my mess of a workbench and gaming area with sub-par storage techniques, I need more shelves and boxes. I play games, do research, and tinker with tech. The PC I'm currently using is a minor upgrade from a previous build which featured a 2nd gen I5 with essentially all the same other specs. I built it because I needed something with even a marginal amount of performance improvement. I call it a placeholder because I have stared a build around the Ryzen 5800x and an MSI Tomahawk X570 WIFI motherboard and I'm waiting on an RTX 3080 like soo many others. I intend to upgrade the ram to 16GB if the motherboard will accept a 4x4GB RAM configuration.

I am a web developer and I needed a new PC because the older one is slow and kept crashing. It took me sometime to get the parts but at the end it it was a nice to have everything together to start the build. I was anxious. Also the problem with the graphic cards didn't help because everyone wanted one and the bots were really annoying. This was my first actual build and I am really proud of it. Everything works really smoothly and I know it will last a lifetime. My next upgrade for this build will be storage.

This led me to learn more about computer hardware so I spent two weeks reading articles, manuals, and watching youtube video's so that I could learn more about the different components that make up a computer. After indoctrinating myself, I set out to build my rig with the intent of creating something that would help me compile code, run virtual machines, and lightly play video games (when I'm not studying of course!!). Since I was only interested in light gaming I didn't mind having a lower end graphics card. Also, considering the shortage of GPU's I was wiling to settle for any GPU that would render things on my monitor. Once the chip shortage mellows out and GPU prices start to normalize I will consider buying a better graphics card so I can play some serious games breh!! Even though I don't have a high end graphics card I'm still very proud of my build because it has a very powerful 12 core AMD processor, 32 gb of ram, 1 TB SSD, and a 2TB HDD. My 12 core processor helps me compile my code at a fast rate and the 32gb of ram gives me the ability to run memory intensive virtual machines in tandem with my host operating system. One of my favorite features is my SSD + HDD combo. I'm planning on keeping my coding files on my SSD so that I can read and write to them at a faster rate and the HDD will be used to store larger files like photo's, movies, and games. Even though HDD's are pegged as slower media, I've found that they can recall files faster when it's not used to hold my primary OS. This small technical loophole allows me to draw greater speed and performance from my HDD. Another great thing about this build is my Lancool II Mesh Tempered Glass eATX Full Tower Computer Case. Even though this case runs on the bigger side, it's size makes it very easy to install all of my components and makes it very easy to cable manage. Also, the two tempered glass side panels make it easy to reach in and make necessary adjustments. Other than it's size, this case has two amazing frontal stock fans that provide outstanding frontal airflow. Even though this case has amazing airflow, I may consider adding a radiator at the top of my case so that I can have air blowing down onto my horizontally placed graphics card. Building a computer during a global pandemic is a daunting task because their is a shortage of computer parts, however I don't regret this experience and I had fun along the way!!

I play everything from CoD, to League of Legends, to Minecraft. this beautiful machine handles it all! I was hoping to upgrade my GPUs that I took from my last build, but things are a bit crazy in that regards right now! Though my current setup still gets the job done extremely nicely! So far I've overclocked the CPU to 5.0GHz, the highest I was able to get it was 5.4, but I feel safer at 5.0 with a lower voltage, for daily use. I love that my PC is able to handle anything I throw at it and the temperatures are beautiful too. CPU and GPUs are liquid cooled and it sure makes a difference! **For some reason whenever I upload a photo it keeps flipping them T_T

Five years ago I joined the world of building custom gaming PCs with my very first gaming desktop containing a Core i5-4690K and a GTX 960 2GB. Ironically enough this was also my very first time visiting my local Micro Center location about an hour drive away. I knew that this wouldn't be the final form of that system and have been upgrading on a roughly annual basis little by little; new CPU cooler here, new GPU there, real standard stuff. By the end of 2020 AMD and NVIDIA both dropped their massive architecture improvements; namely Zen 3 and Ampere. With my recent paychecks from my new part-time job saved up from Christmas break, I knew I wanted to go all out on upgrades and decided to restart from the ground up to build the ultimate system of my dreams. Behold Eclipse; my Ryzen 9 5900X and RTX 3090 FE gaming and editing PC. Yes I know the CPU and GPU are super hard to get ahold of, I feel you 100%. But let this just be a reminder to not give in to scalpers. The CPU was bought from Micro Center at MSRP and the GPU was bought from a guy looking to trade for an RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT. He dropped the price to $1600 when I offered to meet him halfway so even if I'd have bought this GPU myself, the total would've only been $11 cheaper after tax. Even if he wanted the $1589 the card costed after tax I probably would've brought him $11 worth of food for his troubles anyway haha. I really hope you all like this rig as it was my first build with this magnitude of hardware and I think it turned out fantastic. If you wanna see the build process, I highly recommend you check out the video I made on my YouTube channel which can be found here: https://youtu.be/RJSADalELNg I do a lot of fun PC builds and other PC-tech related stuff on my channel so I'd really appreciate if you took a look.

I'd like to thank "Diego M" at the Denver Micro Center who helped me (by complete coincidence) during two different trips a couple of months apart while I was gathering parts for this system. I have named this build "Sign of the Times". When you see the picture and spot the sign, you will understand why! Currently I play a variety of strategy games, such as Endless Space 2, Civilization VI, Rome Total War 2. Also some older first person games such as Tomb Raider. I'd like to play newer first person games as well but that will need to wait (see the previously mentioned sign). Almost all the parts were bought at the Denver Micro Center except for items they simply don't carry.

Around 3 years ago, I started planning a build to replace my aging i5-3570K PC. I wanted something unique - something that couldn't be simply purchased off the shelf. RGB was just getting big, so I went against the RGB trend and started looking into other ways to make my build stand out. Eventually, I was led to research transparent LCD side panel mods. 2 years ago I put together the initial PC. I picked up a Ryzen 7 1700x for $150 as a placeholder for Ryzen 3000 for this build. That release came, and to my surprise AMD was still lagging behind Intel in gaming performance. But with Ryzen 5000, that's a different story! The Ryzen 5 5600X is a beast, with huge uplifts in single core performance compared to my old 1700X. Heck, it even beats it in multi core. You can find a full build log here, which includes more pictures and even videos of it in action: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/time-for-my-second-build-a-project-lcd-case-v2-v3/135450/

Custom water cooled build with a 5950x OC'd to 5.1ghz, EVGA FTW3 ultra 3090 and Corsair Vengeance RGB 32gb ram @4000mhz. Funny story about my CPU. Micro Center in Rockville Md. was showing one in stock. So I drove 2hrs and once I got there they told me it was a error on the website. I was so bummed out.. I started driving home and decided to check at another Micro Center in Parkville Md. I jokingly ask a sales person if they had a 5950's expecting him to say no. He then said that he think's they just received a handful just a few minutes ago. I almost fell over with excitement. OK, this is my second pc build and my first custom water pc. I built this rig for gaming mainly, But also have been flirting with xoc. Best port royal score is 14028. Wanna break that 15,000. Time Spy Extreme 10543. I consider my self a hard core gamer, have about 4000 hours in destiny. I play a lot of story driven games Witcher3, Cyberpunk, Ghost of Tsushima, Nier Automata and Half Life Alex. I built this PC just to be able to play Cyberpunk in 4k. Lol Kind of let down by the game. One thing I wish I would have done different was use all EK parts. Rads and CPU cooler. But I'm proud of the job I did on this pc. I had a lot of fun planning out the build and mapping out the piping. And I hope you enjoy the pictures. Cheers.

I just wanted a good rig to game on, process photos or video content and maybe even do some 3D design work for my long list of hobbies. My intent was to make it nice to look at and I've never done a custom build before. No matter what i did the 3090 seemed to be in the way of showing off the nice looking X570. So I decided to vertical mount the card and so began the challenge. What followed was a lot of planning, trips to the hardware store and locating a brake to bend sheet metal that thick. Build FAQ: Custom made the bracket by hand, I have a 40cm link up riser cable twisted meticulously to reduce visibility. Also used a display port 90 adapter and two extension cables to avoid having my hdmi and Display port cables from tv coming through the case. (No loss in frame rate) Temperatures on everything runs from 5-10c cooler including the 3090. Hot air exits out the rear side of case and the top instead of blowing directly on MB. Also as a result of the 3090 not being in the way of the fans the M.2's and Ballistic Max also run a tad cooler.

I waited outside microcenter overnight for the 3080 launch and it was the most fun I had since the pandemic started.

I have some cables showing but covered my mouse cable on the floor so i don't trip over it. i built bane back when the 6700k was new with a 1080. since than i added 64Gb of gskill ram. planning on upgrading when the 40 cards come out and cpu's are at 5Ghz. or might settle for a 5900x. i never really liked desk gaming. i went from a 1970 wing-back lay-z-boy to a raid-max gaming chair i love and added a back message. With this setup i have my mini fridge and coffee maker right here. i want to get a better 2nd monitor but that tv i had since college. i do a lot of gaming cod, puzzles, math, shooters, rts, and some mmorpg after i got banned from wow in classic. I built myself a 3d printer and have been filling the wall up with masks from some of my favorite games and movies. still have my 360 for guitar hero and modded a wii so i can always have some nintendo fun since they are not on pc or steam =..< been an active creater on thingiverse making auto badges and modding others makes to help people with smaller printers. i love my big screen, i never could find a monitor this big since i like to sit back and be comfy while gaming, cad-ing, watching movies and chillin in my discord.

Stealth is an all gaming and streaming PC. Packing lots of great parts like an NVIDIA 3080 And Ryzen 9 3900x. I play anything I desire on the PC from simple not high-demanding games like Minecraft all the way up to high-demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty Warzone, Forza, and even Assassins Creed. I'm planning to start streaming and become a YouTuber. It's always been my dream. My goal is to have 5k-10k Subscribers by the end of this year and build a great community and have a great fan base. I hope to make people happy even if it means it's a single person that smiles because I know that one smile could make that person's day and make them happy. Thanks to the help of my PC I hope to reach these dreams and make people happy and put out interesting and funny videos for people to watch. The reason I built this PC was that I needed an upgrade from my 2014 iMac that wasn't helping me get too far besides editing videos but the app would constantly crash which was very annoying. I also had a ps4 but I wanted to make the mouse and keyboard change and have better mechanics. The story behind this PC started last year when the pandemic hit. Most people were lazy and didn't think of ways they could change things but not me. I worked super hard during the summer to raise enough money to buy myself a gaming PC. I would wake up early in the mornings and go to garage sales. From there I would look for valuable items I could resell and make a profit from. After many months of hard work and dedication, I finally had all the money I needed to build my dream PC “Stealth”. This was also the first time I had ever built a PC but I did lots of research and watched many videos to know everything about PCs from simple things like what is and isn’t compatible to learning what everything does and everything that is unique about that part. For cable management, I think I did a great job for it being my first time there are barely any cables visible besides the 24 Pin and the ugly 12 to two 8 PCIe. But there was one problem when I decided to buy my parts I decided wait to get on of the new 3000 series cards that had been announced. I waited and when the day came they were released but were all sold out in seconds. This kept going on for months and months until 3 months later I was finally able to get a 3080 Founders Edition of BestBuy. The wait was long but 100% worth it. I hope with my hard work and dedication that I put into streaming and uploading videos I'm able to change lifes and help people be happy. That is the reason I build “Stealth” and is my one and only dream. Background Information: The reason I call my PC “Stealth” is because of the black, white, and grey colors that match the name “Stealth” and also because of how amazing the computer can run just like the plane named “Stealth”. The little lamborgini adventador was just for decoration I took it apart and spray painted it white and I also painted the interior seats white. It was a little touch to make things look a little nicer inside the PC and not be so plain for the inside. Upgrades: 16 More Gigabytes Of G.Skill Neo 3600MHz CL16 Ram 2TB Seagate Hard Drive 1TB M.2 NVMe Samsung 970 EVO

I built because my friends and family told me I couldn't they said it couldn't be done, O boy did I prove all of them wrong. Not too bad for a counsel player. So with this build I wanted to go above and beyond what my friends who are PC gamers had. So I opted for a 3090 and AMD 5900x along with 64GBs of Gskillz Trident Royal Z. It's safe to say I got the last laugh. With all these rare and hard to find pieces I can probably say that the hardest pieces were the Lian Li SL Unifans as I needed 10 total. I had to wait 3 months to assemble it plus I didnt want to pay scalper prices. The next step is to get matching monitors.

I am a converted PS4 player and absolutely love the quality and performance pc gaming has to offer. I primarily play call of duty titles such as Modern Warfare, Cold War and Warzone. I started streaming on twitch with my old custom gaming pc my brother built and I bought from but now that I have two pc's I am working on getting the stream set up again! This system build was my first ever pc build and it was very challenging but very rewarding. the hardest challenge for me was figuring out where cords connected and what needed to be plugged into the motherboard. Miraculously my bios fired up on the first launch!! I was able to get my graphics card by signing up for the app HotStock. They alert you as soon as a certain product you are looking for becomes available in stock and I snagged a rtx 3070 within just a few days! I themed my pc around msi and was able to find many of the parts I needed on sale at micro center. Very excited about this pc and i cant wait to build another!!

I started building this machine 2 years ago, and have upgrading part by part until I got to where I am now. I built this monster PC mainly for gaming, with the SUPER light YouTube production on the side. I play anything from Forza Horizon 4, to Fortnite, to Immortals: Fenyx Rising. I also take the road down nostalgia lane and play some Bloons TD6. Although gaming is its main purpose, I'm doing online school on it too, as I do not own a laptop. As for future upgrades, I'm looking into waiting until DDR5 becomes mainstream, as both my motherboard and CPU are perfectly fine right now. I could go with an i9 10900K or a R7 5800X, but that's just not worth my money for the maybe 10-15% performance uplift. If anyone is wondering how the GPU hybrid kit does, I have never seen the GPU core above 50-55 degrees C when playing games (keep in mind, the fans are only running at about 40-50%, so its nice and quiet too). As for the Galahad AIO I have in here, it cools my 5GHz 9700k very well, have never seen it above 70 degrees C. Don't mind my crummy cable management, this case is good, but not stellar for cable management. But then again, I do have extension cables so 100% of the regular PSU cables in the back of the case.

Being both an avid gamer & online entrepreneur, I wanted to create a rustic & minimal space that could fit the purpose of both passions. I decided to build a workshop style desk from Douglas Fir wood & use that to begin building the theme of my setup. I wanted it to come off with a "Gentleman" vibe, which is why I decided to name it "The Gentleman's Workshop". When building out my PC, I wanted RGB but a very humble RGB that would blend well with the warm tones of the Edison bulbs and space. That's why I decided to choose orange, however, these can be changed at anytime to switch up the aesthetics. I'm sure you also notice the Space X touch within the case. I chose this as my Kraken Z73 background to stay inspired when I'm in work mode. Now that my build is complete, when I'm not running my E-commerce businesses online, I enjoy playing titles like Star Citizen, Hell Let Loose, Flight Simulator VR, & occasionally World of Warcraft. I also enjoy just about any other common FPS & MMORPG. As future changes to the build go, I would maybe consider swapping out the Motherboard for something higher quality and more updated but for now, my MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi gets the job done! Overall, I'm extremely happy with the build and will most likely keep it minimal and clean. Less is more here! **All components purchased at my local Microcenter**

Future upgrades include a vertical mount for the 3070 and possibly liquid cooling for the CPU. Most future upgrades will likely be cosmetic. Things I would have done differently would be mostly cosmetic- for example having red colored RAM to have more red with the red/black theme. Maybe also tone the RGB down a bit.

She was created mainly for gaming and streaming. I am a novice switching over from console gaming so I am still navigating through the games available. So far I've enjoyed completing Jedi: Fallen Order (Look Ma, I'm a Jedi now!) and occasionally I'll play Apex Legends. As of right now, I am planning on trying out Horizon Zero Dawn, Baldur's Gate 3, and maybe even Outriders. I would really love to continue to push the limits of this PC's capabilities, especially since I was lucky enough to get a 3080 from MC. Honestly in hindsight I wish I would have started this build earlier due to the pc component shortage. That way I could have avoided the battle royal that is pc part procurement. My main focus was to complete a white build which only added to the difficulty. I would say if you're completing your own build right now, be patient and keep in mind certain parts require different rgb software that won't sync up once booted up. One thing worth mentioning is it doesn't hurt to be "thrifty" on certain parts. I waited for some of my parts to go on sale before purchasing and even bought my CPU as an open box.

The Chimera is a powerhouse machine designed to be both an aesthetic statement as well as fully functional for streaming whatever games I want to stream. It was given the name Chimera as a suggestion from a viewer that was watching me upgrade the cooling loop on Twitch. The original name of this system was the Kraken. For me monsters and demons are part of my theme thus every one of my personal builds will be named after some sort of "dark" creature. This is currently version 2.0 of this build as I have learned and tried new things. I started out with a kit that I got from Alphacool with a Laing DDC pump and single 360x30mm radiator that I had expanded to two of as well as the Helix reservoir and the V2 DPP 755. Version 1.5 as described is what I had been running for my cooling for the last year. I decided that since I had to take everything apart for the one year cleaning event that I might as well take the opportunity to go ahead and upgrade the loop as a whole. There was a leak that occurred during my first build iteration that caused the RGB lighting in the GPU block to short out, which is something that is getting fixed at the beginning of April. I'm also taking that opportunity to drain the loop and make the loop order a little more efficient. This has been my first liquid cooling loop, and I chose this particular case to build into because of the unboxing video JayzTwoCents did on it. One of the biggest issues I had when it came to the upgrades I've done on the loop thus far was the pressure of the loop itself. In one iteration I considered I was going to have an Eisball pump/res combo but that ended up getting scratched. While I love everything about this build once I got everything working and without any leaking I realized a few things I could have, and will be doing differently as I already have the parts needed on order. First some extra 90º fittings, one of which will be getting placed on the bottom of the reservoir with a 10mm extension. From there I'm going to take the quick disconnect from the bottom radiator and move it to the pump with the black top's out port with a 90º fitting while taking another 90º fitting and putting it on the acrylic top pump with a direct downflow into the bottom radiator. I realized this should have been done solely for the purpose of being able to remove the bottom and front rads with the pumps and reservoir still attached without having to drain either one after taking a good long hard look at the loop order. Along with replacing the RGB strip in my GPU block I will be replacing the stock Red Devil backplate with one made by Alphacool and adding a 45º fitting on the end of the port that it fills the top radiator thru allowing a shorter run there as well. I'm switching the in/out ports on the back radiator and rerouting the connection between the two radiators to go around the quick disconnect on the reservoir while also adding a final quick disconnect to the front radiator allowing both radiators to be removed without having to drain the loop, if need be. The backplate replacement is only to help clean things up in the look. Other little additions are the 90º 24-pin ATX and two 8-pin 180º PCI-E power adapters and the LinkUp PCI-E Gen 4 riser cable. The first few photos are the original layout I attempted a year ago with the kit I bought from Alphacool, followed by the final layout once I got the Helix res and D5 pump. The third photo is of an iteration I had considered using the Alphacool Eisball pump/res combo that ended up not working out. All of the rest of the photos are of the build as it currently sits in my office.

I've been looking around and waiting for the right time to make a build for about 2 years and it has come to this. I wanted to make a nice looking but not too vibrant PC, so I chose the Lian Li Lancool 205m. I saw this at Microcenter once and I really liked the way it looked. It was Micro ATX, which I wanted because a mid tower ATX case would just be too big for my desk. I added 3 120mm RGB fans from Deepcool which would add for better airflow and better lighting. For the CPU, I had to choose the Ryzen 5 3600 as it was the best choice I had for the budget. Got it for under $200 along with the ASRock B450m Pro4 at Microcenter for $60. Great performing CPU and a great binned CPU too IMO (the Ryzen 5 3600's rated all core clock boost is 4.2Ghz). I managed to overclock it to 4.3Ghz stable at 1.35 volts or 4.425Ghz at 1.375 - 1.4 volts. I only use the 1.35v OC as it is probably better for 24/7 use than 1.375. With the Enermax Liqfusion III 240mm AIO, it can cool it like it wasn't even being overclocked. Temperatures were amazing, which I had expected from a liquid cooler. One thing I wanted to do but couldn't was that I couldn't put the AIO on the top mount as it would not fit because the RAM was just barely in the way of the radiator, so I ended up using the 2 case fans that came with the case and put it on the other side of the radiator in the front of the case to get a push/pull configuration. I think the temperatures are probably better like that, but can't say for sure. The GPU I used was the NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super. I was really looking hard to find a 3070 for a good price, but couldn't, so I just found the 2080 Super for $500. Only downside to this was that it is only the factory Dell 2080 Super blower style card, so that means no lights and the worst of all, a loud fan when playing games. I'm pretty sure this fan gets to 70% fan speed evertime and it is pretty loud. I'm looking right now for a 2080 or a 2080 Super non blower style just because of that. Although, I did manage to get a decent stable overclock on it at +150 on the core and +500 on the memory. The RAM I chose was the PNY XLR8 2x8 16GB kit. I found it on Amazon and it seemed like a decent deal for $85. The brand is good and I didn't want to risk spending $10 less on a cheap brand (Oloy). Last but not least, I chose the Inland Platinum NVME M.2 SSD. I wasn't even planning on getting it (but good thing I got it) as I was looking at the Crucial P2. Since Microcenter had it in stock, I bought it. Not only was it cheaper, but it was way faster. For a non PCIE Gen4 NVME, this performs great. The read write speeds are 3,400MB/S Read/1900 MB/S Write. Overall, I think this build is great. I am only using a 1080p 144hz monitor setup, but in the future, I will most likely bump it up to a 1440p 144hz or a 1080p 240hz. I probably ended up spending a total of $1200 including tax and shipping, which is amazing nowadays. Microcenter really helped out with getting my parts quicker and at the best price.

Had this idea for a gold/black 50th anniversary build as soon as I saw the 5700 XT Anniversary Edition. Built for combo gaming/productivity. First, I got all of the parts that weren't the CPU, GPU, and motherboard. I got the X570 motherboard on 7/7/19 at Microcenter, but was too late for a 3900X. I also ordered my GPU from AMD. After I missed the 2nd shipment of 3900X's in my area, I drove 9 hours round trip to grab one from the next closest Microcenter. Finally, I started to put it together. All went well until I tried to put in my radiator in the vertical radiator spot. It didn't fit because of a knob on the radiator, so I had to get a hacksaw and cut my case so the knob would fit. I have more info about this in my review of the radiator. Lastly, I put in my GPU with the included CoolerMaster PCIE riser cable, but it wouldn't work with PCIE 4.0, and my motherboard didn't include an option to revert to PCIE 3.0. After a long time of keeping my card in the horizontal position waiting for a BIOS update to include the option, I finally just spent $36 on a PCIE 4.0 compatible riser cable. I can never get the lighting right to get a good pic, so hopefully what I was able to do is good enough. Also, the RAM and motherboard are gold color, but they show up as white in photos. Thanks for taking a look at my build!

Project Memory has a permanent color combo of blue an pink, in memory of the man who got me into PC gaming back in 1998; my father. His colors were always pink and blue and since his passing in 2015, I've come to adopt those as my colors also. This rig was built as a way for me to honor the passion in which he passed down to me. My game choice is quite different, but the passion is the same. He got me started with Unreal in 1998 and then UT99 in well, 1999. Since then, I've come to enjoy Battlefield, Call of Duty, Valheim, Valorant, The Witcher 3, Fallout and many other games. But every once in a while I will return to those late 1990s classics, and game with some old time friends. With this rig, I will continue to pass down gaming to my children (which my daughter already loves watching me fly in BF4) and to stream. Will be upgrading the case to a Corsair 5000D Airflow, adding 3 more ML120s, and a 2TB SSD for games in the somewhat near future. The case and fans to increase cooling capabilities and the SSD as I have too many games and not enough room. I might also grab an 11th Gen CPU, but I will hold off and see how much of an upgrade it would be and what stock is like. I might also venture into a custom water-cooled solution, but that is a little out of my comfort zone for the time being. I did just upgrade from a Corsair K70 keyboard to a K100 and my god, the difference is immediate and insane. Love the Cherry MX Speed switches, and the G keys are going to be incredibly useful in the near future. So yeah, this is the build. Constantly looking for ways to improve my setup, and I am thinking a mic solution might just be the next investment...or a new desk, as I desperately need one of those too.
