Description

After waiting 2 yrs and saving for 11 months I've finally finished my First PC and I couldn't be happier with it.

My main use for this PC is to play the Newest AAA games at 1440p at about 100 fps and to do some basic photo and video edits for Instagram. I also wanted it to be aesthetically pleasing because I am a dumb teenager who cares about such things :)

So far my ONLY complaint is the "Aorus Engine" and "RGB Fusion" softwares for the graphics card. They are extremely buggy and slow and even have trouble detecting the card even when the rest of the system has no problem doing so.

I have a post on my Instagram showing the RGB LEDs in action along with some additional information about the PC so I encourage you to check it out : @gehrigsthegeek https://www.instagram.com/gehrigsthegeek/?hl=en

I encourage constructive criticism/feedback thank you very much ;)

how are the temps on the gpu?

With the stock fan curve it would get way too hot for my liking, but after some testing and tweaking the fans it sits in the mid 70s on high load and mid 30s idle. Though it does get audible during intense situations it's still nothing overly noticable. Thanks for the question.

Those case fans are the most popular on PCPP right now.

They are fantastic, probably one of my favorite parts of the build thus far.

I have the RF120 fans because they have better cooling performance, just less RGB. They are also MUCH cheaper.

Ngl you could of got a mx500/crucial p1 nvme drive of same size for cheaper. Also if u are to go z390 gigabyte is the best choice with 12+1 vrms as well as evga or the extreme 4

Hello,

I am also building a white PC. Most of the parts are same as yours. I just want to ask a question. Why did you choose this motherboard? Is it just aesthetics or something else? I am considering to buy prime z390-p. So, what can you say about z390-a?

Aesthetics were part of it but I also wanted z390 because of the USB C connectivity just in case I wanted to connect to a different case in the future.

Did you have trouble syncing the RGB for your ASUS MOBO, NZXT liquid cooler, NZXT case, and Corsair fans? Those are exactly what I want to get, but willing to get NZXT fans if it makes it easier to sync.

They aren't synced, they are each controlled separately. Alod this case is from Corsair not NZXT

Wow, I just realized 2 of the 4 RAM modules are fakes...but this build is just excellent. Clean "black-white" combination as well as perfect lighting and planning. Is a 360mm rad really necessary though?

Your build looks very beautiful. Would love to build one like this someday.

How does having the gpu vertical affect the performance because of the pcie riser cable or not
