Meet Orange Crush...my first Build. I built it for my son, who loves online gaming...and I love him. And this is what came out of that equation...lol. Initially, I was going to get a used gaming pc from craigslist, and after looking through dozens of adds, I ended up on youtube...trying to make heads or tails as to what goes into a gaming rig. Then I found this little website called pcpartpicker that let's you design a dream computer. So of course I indulged myself, and ended up getting bit by the bug. I started looking up cases, cause that's the first thing you see. I sat through dozens of reviews on youtube, before I figured out what I wanted in a case, and I picked the Phanteks Evolv mATX. Then It went on the the Motherboard. This one was easy as it was difficult, cause when I typed in the best motherboard, this one won hands down. But the only problem is the motherboard and the case are not compatible without modding one or the other. But it was still a must have, so out came the Dremel. Next came the gpu's. This one was a pretty easy pick as well. I went with 2 GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX...running on SLI HB of course! Then the ram...this one was probably the easiest choice, cause I fell in love with the Trident Z RGB the moment I saw them. And although I knew I wanted to fill all 8 slots...64 GB seemed like a nice sweet spot between 32 GB and 128 GB. The cpu was a whatever, It's not bottom of the barrel, and it's not all out. As long as it was an i7, I was good. The hard drive had to be SSD, and boy was I glad I got it...this thing boots up in seconds. Initially I was going to get a 1 TB SSD and a 5 TB SATA, but I ended up going with a 2 TB Samsung. I spent a little time on the monitor, it was a battle between size vs. quality vs. refresh rate. Initially I bought the Acer Z301, but I ended up returning it and going with the Asus ROG Swift...and I don't regret it! It looks amazing! The refresh rate is not the fastest on the market. But the ROG is largest curved HD monitor out there. With the Power supply, all I knew is that I wanted something good, reliable, and fully modular. As for the fans, cooling, and the rest of the components, it was all a matter of personal preference. As for the build...First and foremost, in case you didn't notice, Phanteks doesn't make an orange Evlov case...I powder coated it. And for anyone that tells you, that you can't fit a Rampage V Edition 10 in a Phanteks Evolv case...yes you can, and here it is. I did have to remove the led from the back of the motherboard, and had to create a slight bend where the motherboard ends to buy me a couple of mm, and avoid any rubbing...and it fit like a glove. I covered the original holes the cables went through with a piece of metal, which I cut and bent to match the original holes, and I powder coated it to match the case. I also made new openings for the cables, which I cut to size to match the grommets I bought. But of all of the things I did to this build, the cables have to be my absolute favorite! To me...it's the pièces de résistance! They came from a place called Cablemod. Not only do they make killer cables, but they have great customer service...really cool, helpful, and knowledgeable. Thanks for your help Matt! Of all the things I put in this thing, nothing pops like these cables! And before anybody goes on about too much RGB...keep in mind this computer was built for a 13 year old. And besides that...it looks freaken cool! Besides, not only can he change the color, the mode, and the speed of the lights...he could also turn it all off, and make it look plain and empty. Cause that would really look cool?!? lmao All in all, I was more then happy with the way it came out. Feel free to leave your comments, and if you like...hit the Favorites. Thanks.
