Description

My basis for this build was something that was more compact that the prior builds I have had, while adding a sense of originality with color. I hadn't seen any builds use burgundy, so I just rolled with it, and I later recognized that white and burgundy are the colors of red velvet, so thus the name was born. Hand sleeving cables is a pain, but it's cool to know that you put your own blood sweat and tears into your build if you know what I mean. I got all the stuff from https://mainframecustom.com/ and Paul's Hardware videos for help. I also sprayed my fan beauty rings, for an extra accent. As for the hardware, I was able to get the i7 6700k up to 4.6 Ghz stable on the H100i, and I kept the 1080 stock, as it performs well out of the box with good temps.

For the rest of the setup, I have my Audio-Technica ATH-M50x's which I love dearly, as music is a large part of my life. As for the monitor, I love ultrawide, and was able to steal this LG for under 600 bucks on an amazon sale.

Thanks for taking a look!

I was wondering about the name until I took a closer look. VERY VERY nice build. Very subtle, but very nice. How are you liking the ultrawide?

I love the ultrawide, I came from 3 x 24" 1080p monitors and don't plan on going back. Thanks for the comment!

Ive got 2 x 22" 1080p ASUS LED monitors that I have had for 6+ years and its past time to upgrade or at least go for something new. Never could convince myself to go with 3 monitors but I can easily see myself going to an UW.

Yeah, I never could get used to all the bezels, but I find myself being more productive with an ultrawide as well.

I also enjoy watching Paul's Hardware videos. A lot of my computer knowledge comes from him.

The Phanteks Enthoo Evolv case you used is quickly becoming one of my favorite cases that I see here on PCPartPicker. Your whole build looks great in it. Nice work.

Hows the cable management? was it easy closing the back side of the case?

It was fairly easy, this case has a lot of room to offer in the back for cable management for how small the case is.

Just wondering what the lengths of your custome cable were? I have the same case and will be doing a similar build.

Lovely build - quick question: Is the rear fan a 120mm? If so, would you have been able to fit a 140mm in there, or would it not fit? Just asking for my own research, thanks.
