Green Lantern Cube

I love buying people's old computers and making them desirable again, so when I saw someone selling their old Ryzen system for $220, I quickly offered to pick it up for $200 and they accepted. The computer came with the Ryzen CPU, motherboard, video card, and some extras that I didn't include in the final build. Overall the core components of this build were really cheap to acquire.

CPU / Motherboard - The star of the show, I knew a cheap budget Ryzen build would sell well in the marketplace. Personally I wouldn't use this CPU, but for the price I got it for, the performance and the ability to upgrade gives this combo a tremendous value.

Memory - I actually had this kit lying around from a previous deal waiting for an Intel build and ended up throwing it in this one.

Storage - My first time using an ADATA branded SSD. I bought this one because it was cheap and the green label actually matched the theme I was going for.

Video Card - Came with the original computer, I would've upgraded this to at least a RX570/GTX1060 but decided to just save costs and let the Ryzen sell the PC for me.

Case - Picked this up on a used deal on Facebook for $20! I was originally going to use this case for a build that used those ugly green OEM motherboards, but I never got one that I liked so I used this mATX combo instead. This case was never used as far as I can tell so it came in great condition.

Power Supply - Picked this guy up brand new for very cheap after MIR. Perfect price/performance for this system and blacked sleeved cables look nice.

Other Features - I added some cheapy $2 chinese green LED strips at the top of the case. Honestly it makes the case way too bright and makes the motherboard look like a cheap OEM Dell. It still looked pretty cool, sooooo much green!

I really wanted to hold onto this case since. I got it for super cheap and was actually a fan of the neon green, but the dimensions and layout really bugged me. I'm not a huge fan of the flat motherboard and these cube cases are just a little too big for my taste. Ultimately I found a buyer within a day that really liked the green theme I had going. I also posted it for a cool $420 so there's that also. Thanks for reading ;)
