(The tower by itself cost about $598.21 USD. Set prices do not include tax or shipping.)
This PC is replacing an all-in-one with an odd screen flicker problem(Intel iGPU). My mother wanted to try something with tempered glass so you could see the internals like my personal PC setup. She also wanted pretty lighting and left other details up to me for what the build. Nothing cheap though, but not too costly either. I decided to make it a basic/minimalist mATX gaming machine in general. I might use it for streaming at some point along side my personal gaming computer or something.
I messed with some overclocking and the short of it is that the highest CPU overclock so far gets up to 3.85 GHz @ 1.356v, and the GPU got an OC clock of 1350 MHz & 2000 MHz Memory. System Ram accepted an XMP profile OC from the default of 2666 to 3066 @ 1.20v. This CPU seems to have a weird issue? of reporting 1 second temperature spikes of +10°C, every so often when overclocked and I'm not sure why.
The current CPU overclock is set to 3800 Mhz @ 1.262v.
I made a video time-lapse of the build process as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwzqOxgz9C0
Updated the part's List to better reflect the current setup.

- Considering a Monitor Riser
- Maybe additional Case Lighting
