Description

My 6600K box was falling a little behind the times (even with a 2070 in there) after three years, so it was time for a new machine. This time, I wanted to go bonkers with the RGB nonsense and do something a little over the top.

5GHz at 55C under load, moderate fan noise (even with 14 of them!), pleasant black and silver/gunmetal for all of the parts and RGB lighting as crazy as I want it to be if I'm feeling in the mood. I didn't intend for it to happen, but all of the functional bits save the CPU are either MSI or AData products thanks to deals found on the buildapcsales subreddit.

The case was a blast to build in. Compact (yet roomy), well-made and extremely easy to work with. I can see why the PC-O11 is so popular. The one low point is the restrictive filters included with the case, which were replaced with DEMCiflex filters on all of the intakes and removed altogether on the exhaust. The sheer number of RGB fans also required the installation of SATA-powered fan and RGB hubs by DeepCool and XSPC, respectively.

Ha, yeah. I may have some sort of undiagnosed condition - if there's a spot for a fan, I feel compelled to populate it. XD

I do that in pretty much every PC I build - it helps that I'm largely immune to fan noise. XD.
