I did originally set out to save money where i could on the system, and one of those places ended up being the memory.

The speed is ok, and the black on black was nice, but it just looks booring now with how everyting ended up.

So I decided another $80 for even faster + alot better looking RGB memory was reasonable.

And since I am still within my open return period I thought better now and loose nothing on return, or regret later, which I most likely will..

That's not a bad idea at all. And that is the same RAM I first picked out for my build. When I went to get my parts, they had sold the last 16GB just before I showed up. Needless to say, I was a sad panda.

But, I picked up the Corsair RGB Pro 3200MHz RAM, and I have been very happy with it. It's fast, and it has an awesome RGB effect. It also works with the Aura RGB on the ASUS motherboards, and from what I hear (I haven't tried it yet) the Corsair RGB software can control all the ASUS Aura RGB products. However, I really like the look of the G.Skill RAM, and it gets really good reviews (which is why I picked it out in the first place). Can't go wrong with that RAM. Good choice.

Never really been that into the rgb craze, but when playing with the settings on the ROG board, I realized its all about using it, not abusing it

You can choose between every color, you shouldn't use EVERY color

I love multicolour myself. Every time you look at your PC, it's like a different computer. That's why I'm replacing the Corsair blue maglev 140mm fans with the Corsair RGB fans like I have in my cooler. The interior of my case is dynamic and constantly changing, just like real life. But the front always looked the same blue.


To quote Tom Sawyer by Rush, "he knows changes aren't permanent, but change is". That sums up a gaming PC perfectly....

Last pieces for now.

I am leaning towards getiing a new GPU aswell since I did finally move up to 1440p, looking at an Asus RTX Super Strix 2070 Advanced, but ill try to wait and see if something cheaper turns up.







Default lighting. I must say, dont hate it



But I think ill go for a more conservative scheme for now.

Spoiler!



That looks sweet man. Very nice job. Love the drive bay covers, well done .
Note with 1440p and an RTX 2070 Super, I have the Gigabyte version. It's a good card, but it still struggles at 1440p if you turn the eye candy up. I mostly play Star Trek Online and Borderlands 3, and both of those games can really make that card struggle especially if you turn up the fog and a few other effects. I would recommend checking the driver settings and changing the sync to "fast sync". I have found the best results with that, but it will make your card run close to 100% all the time so the frames are rendered when the system wants them. Unless, of course, you have a free sync or g-sync capable monitor. My HKC 34" Ultra-wide is supposed to be freesync compatible, but it doesn't seem to work properly, but it works great with Fast Sync.

Thank you, yes I am very pleased with how it all turned out.

The monitor I got has all the bells and whistles, 144hz (165 oc), IPS, 1 ms and G sync. Got a great deal on a 'demo' used item that ended up being factory sealed

Im in no hurry to upgrade the GPU, but with everything else upgraded i do feel the tingle.. but just a little

I am currently playing Doom Eternal, and getting 120+ fps on 1440p ultra settings, so no lack of power for now.

And with the mining craze all but over we can hope that come aug/sept when nvidia announce and release rtx 3000 series the 2000 sereis will come down abit.

Ive also been checking pricetracking for 2020, and prices still have not come back down afte corona surge in mid march..
