Novus Regnum

After years of having to make do with a notebook I decided to build a new rig. Last time I built a PC the cases were all gray, the coolers were all air, nobody cared about cable management and RGB wasn't a thing. The times have changed, and my desire for a cool build grew. However the budget was tight, so it seemed I'll be forced to choose between style and performance.

Enter Project Dealbreaker
I scoured the internet for best deals for several weeks until landing on the build you can see here. Several things became quickly apparent: the used parts market in Slovakia sucks - most people deal with complete builds and don't sell individual components, and the prices are usually absurdly close to MSRP, even for mining-abused hardware. I got also burned buying on a shady e-stores, with suspiciously low prices - if it seems too good to be true, it usually is.

But the search paid off and I was able to land a really nice lightly used B450 Tomahawk for a good price and the build was on. I went for a Ryzen 5 2600, saving some money on the non-X version, opting to put the money towards a water cooler. Another stroke of luck was when a colleague was able to slide me some parts for wholesale prices, which enabled me to get the sexy ROG Strix RTX 2060, along with a solid 3200Mhz memory and a blazing fast NVMe SSD.

An unapologetically Slavic build
All I needed next was some (affordable) bling. You don't buy a Strix card just to have it hidden behind a non-transparent side panel. This is where the star of this build comes in: SilentiumPC. Polish manufacturer of surprisingly affordable, high quality cases and coolers. The case I chose was the Regnum RG4T RGB which comes with 3 pre-installed RGB case fans, beautiful tinted tempered glass, solid IO and all-aluminium construction (it's really light even with the glass panel). SilentiumPC also takes care of the cooling with the beautiful Navis RGB 240 AIO watercooler. It runs a little louder, but it keeps the R5 2600 cool and stable with 4GHz OC. It's also worth mentioning that SPC has also a new gaming accessories branch - SPC Gear. They don't have a lot of products yet, but I'm rocking their GK530 Tournament Kailh Brown RGB keyboard and for the price I paid for it I couldn't be happier with it. If you like the slightly heavier key stroke of the Kailh switches check out their keyboards, the construction is great, RGB modes are gratuitous and the price is unmatched.
