I am getting ready to build another PC due to the fact that my current rig is going on 4 yrs old (still solid) and I am passing it on to my kids so they can start to dabble in the PC realm.
My current rig is a mini ITX. Although it was fun, I'm going back to a micro ATX mid tower size.
New build -
CPU- Intel i7-8700k
Cooler - NZXT Kraken X62 Rev2
Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (mATX)
Memory - Corsair Vegnance RGB Pro 16gb DDR4-3000
Storage - Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
GPU - Asus GTX 1080 8gb ROG STRIX , but if new cards pop soon might swap.
Case - Corsair Crystal 280X RGB mATX mid tower
PSU - Corsair HX Platinum 750w
Also gonna grab a 32" ultra wide to pair up with a 27"
So this will be a RGB build with most of the components having that feature. I want to build a solid rig but not trying to max anything out this time around as I will probably do another build in a few years.
Will throw up some pics once its done.
Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC. Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making. Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline. Cant wait to see what you guys are running!
I've already posted this on my profile but I'll start anyway.

Not sure if this is the right subforum but I just wanted to share my new gaming PC that I've built. After my old one was really showing its age (i5 2500k with 8GB RAM) and having issues where it would randomly decide to shut down on me and forcing me onto a crummy laptop for a week I felt it was time to get something new which would also provide me with the means to actually play Squadron 42 and Star Citizen at some point.
Here is the list of components that I used and some pictures
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X CODE Intel Core i7-8700K Corsair Hydro H115i Corsair 32GB DDR4-3000 Vengeance RGB (2x16) ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Strix Gaming 11G Corsair Carbide Clear 400C White Corsair AX860 PSU Samsung 960 PRO M.2 512GB SSD Corsair ML120 Premium - Twin Pack Corsair ML140 Premium - Twin Pack Picture of all the components prior to unpacking and assembly
It was a tight fit due to the midsize case but I was able to fit everything properly. I replaced the original casefan and the ones for the radiator with the ML fans.
And here's the end-result! I wanted to go with an Aegis Avenger theme and I believe it worked out great
I got the Aegis decal from a site called Redbubble
