Description

This is my first PC build, but I did a complete investigation on the necessary knowledge of PC parts and builds. The purpose of this build is for low-frequency gaming, simulation work, and media work. The purchase of the CPU is even before I decided to build a PC last year, and initially I just want to have a budget build.

Almost all the other components but CPU are purchased during BF 2018, the Case is my favorite choice, it is saving a lot of space on my desk. Starting from this case, I kind of looking for some white components to match the style. PSU is a perfect choice, with high-quality, sufficient output interface.

Since I really want to have a compact but mighty PC in my bedroom. It took extra effort to complete this build but it is worthy. The cable management is ok for me and I don't want to spend extra time on it. For the airflow, I put two 120 fans on top and AIO cooler on rear to exhaust hot air.

Anyway, until now it worked quiet and efficiently, with the CPU overlocked to 4.9 GHz, it can remain to be 35 Celsius (idle) and 55 Celsius(gaming). Only issue is GPU can be over 80 Celsius degree when playing Assassin Creed Odyssey. In the future, I may consider add one 3.5" hard drive with optane memory, another fan on bottom if necessary.

did you install the mobo correctly? the orientation of everything in here is just very bizarre. Either way, good job! but I feel like its a bit 'tight' and jumbled looking.

Yes, this case has a weird layout inside, everything(including the airflow) is the opposite to the normal one. I have to compromise between compactness and functionality, but for now I still believe it is worthy. Thank you for the comment.

What happened to cable & tube management? Such build deserves more effort.

sick build thinking about using this case in my next build how easy is it to get everything installed? also is the case pretty light with everything installed? just trying to get a feel for the case as i dont want to purchase something and then hate it. im thinking about getting it for portability.

If you use a smaller graphic card and air cooler, it will be easy to move, but with my build, it is not. For the installation, you'd better find a friend to help, the power supply lines are difficult to plug in to the mobo. Hope this can help u.

Some things to keep in mind, air cooler might be better choice visually if you can fit one that can handle 8086k in there, black cables are more stealthy than whilte.

Thank you for the suggestion, I will consider to buy mod cable for better visual effect, the aio cooler's tube is much longer than I expected, but for better performance, I have to compromise.

I bought it from the newegg December last year. It cost me $1215 with Battlefield V as a gift. That makes my budget udner $3000, and it still worthy. If you are planning to buy a rtx 2080Ti, which as I know not in stock for the most models, I will suggest the FE edition, for non-FE edition, use the following link, https://www.nowinstock.net/computers/videocards/nvidia/rtx2080ti/

Poor execution here. Not sure how you afford a $1200 GPU and not a $170 dollar case.
