Black and Silver

Black and silver metal build, inside a Thermaltake Core X2. I tried to get a fairly powerful system to run as quietly as possible, and still look good while doing it. RGB lighting on the fans and LED strips is optional, but I usually just leave it off. Originally planned to be all air cooled, I've ended up with a large air cooler on the CPU, while the GPU is cooled with a Corsair H50 + NXZT G12 mount.

The case is listed as a Core X5, because I couldn't find an option for the X2. PSU is a 650W, not sure what brand though.

CPU Cooler is a Scythe Ninja 5.

Started of with a 1050ti + Pentium G4560, then to an 8600k + 1070, then had another 1070 for a few days, until I managed to snag a 1080ti and the G12 for a great price.
