Description

Hello again !

Today, we present you a mid range build, based on a white theme. It is meant to be used to play at 1080p with nice graphic settings and high framerate, without blowing your pocket up.

We added a custom backplate to the GPU, custom white cables, as well as a Wifi PCIe card. This card reaches 1Gbps, in download and upload, which is quite satisfying.

The PC looks clean, and is perfect as winter is coming.

Enjoy !

Part Reviews

CPU

Really nice CPU for its price. We overclocked it at 4.8GHz on this build, but we were able to reach 5.1GHz on another one. It is" outdated now", but it still performs very well. We don't have much to say that has not already been said thousand times. Works like a charm,

CPU Cooler

It is quiet, it is sexy, it is not too bulky, it has nice perfs, what else do we want ?

Motherboard

It looks great and the RGB lights on the left are not these flashy ones you find everywhere else. It is perfect for a clean build, without thousands of stuff going on at the same time. As always with Asus, overclocking was a really nice experience on this board. It lacks Wifi, but at this pricepoint, no motherboard offers that.

Storage

It boots Windows in a couple of seconds and has just enough space for the OS and a few demanding programs. The perfect point between price and fonctionnality in our opinion.

Storage

It is an HDD, from the best brand in our opinion.

Yes that's all.

Video Card

It looks great, it now comes with the option to not have the fans spinning when the card is idling, and it's perfect for a whte build. The only bas point is that it lacks a backplate. We fixed it by putting a custom one, but one directly on the card would have been nice.

Case

It looks classy and elegant. Even in red ! It has an HDMI output in the front for VR, aswell as a huge tempered glass. Cable management is a piece of cake, and building in this case is a lot of fun !

Power Supply

It does the job. We added custom white cable for a better looking system

Nice build! Do you have clearance issues with the cooler? NZXT only have official support for 161 mm tall coolers.

Skraydd submitter 6 Builds 1 point 5 days ago

Thank you ! Not a single issue, as the cooler is 160mm. It fits perfectly without touching the glass panel.

Spectacularly clean! Did you like take pictures of this on a black curtain or something?

Skraydd submitter 6 Builds 2 points 5 days ago

Thanks ! The pictures were shot in a professional studio, with black curtain behind the PC.

Nice Build, I'd like to change the cpu cooler to coolermaster 240 and keep everything the same so it looks nearly as dope as your nice *** pc. If i were just to buy the parts any other things other than peripherals would you recommend like cable sleeves or something? Great build btw :o
