    So I been building & messing around with computers since high-school, overall been amazed by them & thought they're so cool.... 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.

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/

I chose the name Mr. Bond because of the minimalistic look of the black and white, it may not be bright and colorful but it doesn't disappoint. I built this pc because I was playing on a cheap Toshiba laptop many years ago and I felt like it was holding me back. I play a lot of Call of Duty, GTA V, Rainbow Six, and CSGO (I'm very into competitive game I just love the feeling of clutching when the odds are against you). I mostly use this rig for gaming but I also use it for streaming and editing. My set up works fine but my GPU is currently bottlenecking my build and it makes it impossible to stream and get 144 fps. I've been wanting to upgrade to a RTX for a long time now to see what the hype is about and maybe finally be able to stream and get high fps but the pandemic doesn't make it easy to afford a GPU right now and I think many can agree.

Been building PC since 5th Grade and it was on my bucket list to build an overkill system. I honestly use this to check email, do online banking, personal budgeting with excel and play a little bit of CS:GO on the side. I like to work my way around. The rig first used a $50 X370 board to run the 3900X, now it has been upgraded to a B550 board for future Zen3 upgrade potential. When i bought the parts for this rig, i was jumping around microcenter like a little kid. Little bit about myself. There was a time i built my rig with used parts from Ebay and i got them by saving up my lunch money. My first rig had an Intel PIII 667 with an Nvidia TNT2. Back when CS 1.6v was the hit along with BF2142, i spent about 6-7 hours a day gaming. Now that I am in my late 20 working full-time, i don't overclock or do speed run. I only spent bigger cash on what is needed. The motherboard just need to reliably running a 12 Cores. I dont need top of the line RAM for OC. But as you can see, i gave it a strong PSU and Cooler for reliability. The graphics card is more than enough for next couple of years. Until GTA 6 releases, i dont think i needed anything. Thanks for reading.

I actually built this gaming rig back in 2012 as my first gaming PC; however the case was released in 2008. I bought an intel core i5 3570k with an asus P8V-LX Z-77 motherboard. I had 8GB (4x2) of corsair ddr3 1600 and a radeon hd 6850. I got a laptop later down the road which replaced the rig. The rig was left in the basement for years to come. Years later (2020), I searched the basement and found the old rig covered in cob web and dust. This was a great project to begin working on during quarantine. It took a while to remove all of the old parts and customize the case to my liking. I had to use a dremel to saw off a piece of the drive bay area, so that I can fit a 11+ inch GPU. I mainly use this as a everthing to do and game computer. I love to game on league of legends, Grand Theft Auto 5, Dying Light, other story games: A Plague Tale Innocence, Far Cry, Rise of the Tomb Raider, The Witcher 3 and more. The goal was to hit 120+ FPS on high/ultra @ 1080p and this build proved more!

What started out as a simple build in late January, to help process photos in Lightroom and 4k drone footage, quickly got out of hand as March rolled around and everyone one was stuck inside. Next, after a 13 year hiatus Steam was installed back on the computer and CSGO with the old crew was back in full swing. The bones of this system in January were a Ryzen 9 3900, Asus TUF x570, Gskill 32gb, Raedeon 580, a Samsung Evo 970 pro n.2 and a Corsair HX Power supply pretty grand prix by some standards. With all the hours of usage added to the machine in March I couldn't go forward without making a couple of major upgrades. On more than one occasion (two) I maxed out the 32gb of ram in Lightroom and Premiere so that was the first upgrade 128gb ddr4 RGB Corsair Vengeance. Also, when I first bought the Ryzen 9 3900 I didn't fully realize what a powerhouse I was getting. Pairing the Ryzen 9 up with the Raedeon 580 felt like owning a Ferrari and putting regular gasoline in it. The next upgrade was the RTX 2080ti. It felt a little bit dangerous running all these components with a power supply that was 8 years old so after doing a bit of research I found that the Corsair RM850 had some of the best acoustics in the RM series. Other notable mentions in the computer are all Noctua coolers and fans also chosen for acoustic qualities. The last bit was I realized I still had an N.2 space to fill so I grabbed a 2TB XPG S50 NVME drive, this thing is a rocket, I regret not installing windows on it, that's the only regret I have with this system. Onto the most important parts of the computer, the peripherals. Having a powerful supercomputer is great but it's worth nothing if you're clicking a crappy mouse and using rubber doomed keyboard switches. For the keyboard and mouse I was pretty flexible for the most part with requirements but I did have one very import requirement that limited my available selection greatly, its 2020 and they have to be wireless, I can't have wires on my desk it's just in appropriate at this point. For the mouse it was between the Logitech G703 and the Corsair equivolent. I went Logitech just because it was a bit more low profile. Keyboard was a much more complex decision with a much more complex result. There are no to very few wireless keyboard options with Cherry MX brown. So after weeks of quarantine research I went with Keychron K2 with Gateron browns, it's a great keyboard but I dove down the rabbit hole on mechanical keyboards. The result was Keychron K6 hot-swap with Zealios V2 switches and Tai Hao PBT Keys definitely a very special board and lots of fun to put together. The last peripheral that I didn't get into yet is the monitor. I started with a 32 Samsung 4k Curved. This was fine for the level of editing I was doing when I first got the computer. Once I started gaming the 60hz just didn't cut it. I grabbed an Acer Predator 4k 120hz and it was great but expensive for a 27 inch monitor, it also didn't have every feature I was looking for like HDR 1000. The only monitor that does have that is the ASUS ROG 27 which is even more expensive. After another couple of weeks of research and decision trees I decided to give the LG C9 55 inch OLED TV a try as my computer monitor wall mounted, best decision I've ever made in my entire life. It's got all the features you want from the ASUS ROG 27" monitor for the same price and its OLED the best local dimming you can have, the contrast, colors and HRD are the BEST. Lastly I'll mention the case. I made this case custom in college 10 years ago as a Hack Pro. I took a G5 Apple Case, cut the back out and threw a Lian Li Motherboard tray in soldered some wires on the front panel. During Corona Virus quarantine I took the customization to the next level. I painted the interior Matte Black to bring it up to modern standards and made more modern cable routing possible under the motherboard tray,it was one of the best 3AM start time projects I've ever done. It really elevated the level of the system. The most fun part of the project was getting everything on the front panel working and getting a female USB-C working through an old Firewire port.

The Noctua NH-D15 is damn near silent, and the triple-fan 2070 Super runs most games very quietly. RGB wasn't much of a concern (it sits below my desk) but the built-in lights on the motherboard and Maingear case logo are nice! Mostly am using it for Call of Duty Warzone right now (runs it with ray-tracing on at 144 fps, and never goes above 60 C, if that) Most of the parts came from Micro Center, but I got some really good discounts for the motherboard and GPU on Amazon Warehouse deals and Newegg's eBay page
