Description

This is a rebuild of the gaming computer my fiancé built for me about 6 months ago, which can be found here. (he was my boyfriend back then uwu)

For Christmas, he bought me a liquid cooler to replace my old CPU fan, my dad bought me an ACTUAL gaming monitor to replace the Samsung TV I was playing on, and I decided to buy myself a new case that I've been wanting ever since I laid eyes on it. I loved my old case and once I saw that this was essentially my old case with a sexy all-glass upgrade, I was sold. We were both a little worried at first about the wire management in this case considering you can see through every panel. Wire management definitely took up a brunt of the build time. But the Force is strong with him and he was able to conceal and camouflage a lot of them. (keyword for this case is: patience) Like my old PC, he did 99% of the building while I supervised and I helped where I could (like holding flashlights and providing witty commentary).

We were also worried about temperature in this case, there are small openings here and there but for the most part, it's covered in glass so we were concerned about airflow. Surprisingly, this case holds up well even during longer gaming sessions and I personally love knowing exactly where the cool air will come from and being able to feel it (who doesn't like a nice breeze, am i rite)

Shoutout to the person who commented this on my first post

This looks more aesthetically pleasing than the old build. Good job! I'm also concerned about thermals in this case because the Core V1, in my opinion, had excellent air flow. You should do some benchmarks to see what temps you're running at idle and at full load. If the numbers are acceptable to you then you're good.

Totally love your build! The Cyberpunk theme is awesome - magenta/blue working well together. Love the look of the EVGA 1080. What is the lighting used for the blue hue?
