Building a new gaming unit in a few days...old one stressed the CPU too much.


Asus. Z690-A. MoBo
Intel i7 12700kf processor
Samsung 2TB nvme ssd
64 gigs Vengeance DDR5 RGB Ram
Asus Dual RTX 3060 OC edition graphics card
Gammax 850W gold PSU
DeepCool AK400 cooling tower
Musetec Y6 ATX case


Everything is in white, including all white cables. RGB lighting on the MoBo, the Ram, and 8 case fans. May also install an RGB fan on the cooling tower.

What ya think?

The all white is slick. That one looks water cooled. Will yours be too?

I considered water cooling but instead I decided to go with this deepcool ak400 tower...but with an RGB fan

just a random picture but thats the tower... basically a radiator with a fan blowing air through it...copper pipes make contact with the processor to absorb the heat

Looks Great!!!

It's been years since I built my last PC. Haven't gamed on a PC in several years so don't really need one anymore.

Although, as I inch closer to retirement a new PC build sounds like fun.

Completed my build Tuesday. Got about 8 hours with it...setup all my web passwords, downloaded a couple games... did some test gaming at about 2am to see how well the cooling system works...all good.
Before I went to bed there was an icon on the task bar asking for a restart to complete the windows updates...I clicked okay....and my pc has given the blue screen of death ever since....
Took it to the shop this morning.

They are a blast...PC games are getting totally amazing these days....can't believe I used to get excited for games in DOS
