Monochrome

First off, i'm not a photographer and the lighting is bad so I couldn't get good quality pictures.
I went for a white and black theme as you can probably tell. Main purpose for this build is gaming--VR included and movie streaming.

CPU: Originally was going to go with the Ryzen 7 2700x but my budget dropped. 8-cores from the 1800x is still great though. OC'd to 4GHz stable

CPU Cooler: Just a normal CPU Cooler that matches my theme and has a nice white LED to throw in the mix.

Motherboard: ASRock AB350 Pro4. Yeah not the best obviously but it met my needs and fits my theme at the same time. Win-Win. So far no issues with VRM's.

RAM: Originally wanted the 3000MHz 16GB kit of Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro but, as I said, my budget dropped and had to cut corners on some things. The Corsair Vengeance LPX in white works just fine though.

GPU: Yeah, yeah, I know. "Don't get RTX it isn't worth it". I DON'T CARE. I gotta get that shiny new stuff. That's all there is to it.

Case: I was skeptical about the Meshify C at first but after seeing it in a few builds I thought it looked great and helped me conserve space in my dorm room. Cable Management was easy and I didn't even need to use any of the zip ties that the case came with.

OS: Windows 10 64-bit Education

Storage: Currently only 1 500GB M.2 from Crucial but will buy another 1TB in the near future so no worries.

Fans: Last build didn't have any lighting to show off the inside so it was too plain. Went with Corsair AF120 Whites to match the theme and add light.
