Description

I needed to name my custom build something cheesy, therefore "White Knight" was born. Now listen up, all jokes aside, I built this to play Fortnite. I originally started with a modest list, and slowly 1+ everything... I discovered that RGB is life, and if I look good I surely must play good. Turns out that is not true, I am still trash, but at least my PC game is on point.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

This white LED is so crisp, it makes all the other whites in the case look blue.

Motherboard

I wanted a simple motherboard, I could have purchased something fancier for like another $10. I didn't want RGB and crazy covers, or care for things like wifi. However, this bad boy is about as plain as it gets, the I/O panel is so flimsy and cheap looking.

Memory

The RGB color wave is very fluid and diffused.

Video Card

She runs cool and silent. Fans do not even kick on until 60c , it runs around 64c under load

Case

I love this case, I originally had the H500i on order but it was delayed because of a holiday. I was way too impatient and drove 45 minutes to pick up a H700i. Yes I spent nearly double, but don't regret it at all. This case is beautiful.

Case Fan

I was hesitant to spend $120 on three fans, but these are LIT, literally. The RGB is very vibrant, and you cannot see the individual LEDs at all. Many neat color effects! However, I still think these are a little expensive for 120mm fans. Almost forgot, the module where you plug the fans in for sequential effects only has 6 inputs. I am not sure if you can expand beyond that, but my case for example has 7 fans.

You should seriously consider upgrading your monitor, your gpu is more than capable of 1440p gaming. You should also overclock your cpu, and gpu, although your cpu cooler may not be able to handle 4+ ghz. Otherwise +1 for a clean looking build.

Thanks! I plan on upgrading the monitor, maybe around black Friday if I can set aside some money and find a deal. This is my first gaming PC, so I had to buy everything new including the peripherals.

It depends on your preference.

If you like a smooth gaming experience, pick a 1080p monitor with a higher refresh rate (100hz or higher). I believe they're easier to find and often maybe a bit cheaper.

But if you want to play with slightly higher pixel density (video quality) then just buy a high resolution monitor.

Good luck and +1, I love the build!

imo getting a 1080p144hz would be better.

Tisleet submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 days ago

I don't have a preference for 1080 vs 1440, but I definetly am looking to get a 144hz with gsync.

You did a very good job with this build. For sure room to upgrade in the future, but as far as what you did with what you have, outstanding! Love your color scheme and lighting!

Thanks! Im sure this goes for every build on here, but, it looks better in person. The pics make the case lighting appear blue, in person it's a crisp white with the blue accents. I'm happy with how it turned out, appreciate the feedback.
