Kaphine_Machine_SQ

*SLAPS LID* THIS GIRL CAN FIT SO MUCH PERFORMANCE INTO IT. It's basically a pimped out ford fiesta.

The goal of the build was to create a rig that could be use as both an Oculus VR and 1080p Freesync/Gsync Compatible 75 FPS+Average gaming rig, and a content creation workstation for a Freelance Creator, primarily focusing on 3D Modeling, with QoL and forward thinking, in a somewhat easily moveable/travel capable build.

It also features a Kinectv2 as a webcam (and for motion capture in blender,VR), and a Dummy Plug to run headless, have an extra monitor in VR or to use with a tablet device. Also includes an external numpad for use as a Macro/Hotkey Deck.

It uses a modest budget for an "Acceptable Minimum" Workstation Machine primarily for use with blender, and takes advantage of the recent price drops of new hardware and ram costs, with the ability to expand later. It's case was chosen for both form factor, and style, and while it is (partial) RGB I choose to keep it down to two contrasting colors, allowing for some nice mood lighting.

(Note: Peripherals were already purchased)

The GPU (RTX 2060) is overclock-able to 2070hz Core with GPU Boost, with a +70 Offset, I haven't quite dialed in the perfect memory clock, so right now they run +800hz, using a custom fancurve that isn't too aggressive. It also runs about 1980-1995hz without even adjusting the GPU boost curve, so. The case did have to be trimmed to be able to easily slot in the chosen GPU (MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z)

I may have plans to do a casemod on the acrylic side-panel with a matching mesh look.

It can run horizontal, or vertical. I run it horizontal because I don't want to go blind.

PS. The SQ stands for Size Queen with how much stuff is packed into it. Especially that massive GPU.
