Arcius

I started this project with the intention of upgrading my 5 year old PC from 1080p high quality graphics @ 60Hz to 1440p ultra quality graphics @ 144Hz. I honestly did not intend this to be a full rebuild and wanted to use my old case and some old components (I only ended up reusing one component). But, well, I really fell down a rabbit hole and ended up with this PC. And frankly I couldn't be happier or more proud with how it turned out for a full rebuild.

Now this project was not intended to be a ultimate gaming powerhouse that can crush any modern title. It was designed to game at exactly 1440p ultra quality graphics @ 144Hz with a comfortable couple of years of future proofing. The area I really tripped up was RGB lighting. I didnt intend to have any RGB when I started and next thing I know I am considering putting ARGB lights on my toothbrush.
