Project 5

This is my 5th project build. After seeing this open framed case on Ali Express I really wanted to do a build with it. It seems to be some type of Chinese variant of the Yuel beast case. Though looking at them both I liked the one I choose more due to the rounder corners and more vent cutouts in the metal frame. I have also wanted to build with an MSI Unify motherboard since the lineup came out so I finally grabbed a z690i Unify board paired with a 12700kf. This is also my first build with DDR5. I'm using Corsair vengeance DDR5 at 4800mhz. I added a 1tb Corsair MP600 core NVME SSD. I was also on the wait list for the GPU off of the EVGA website for over a year for the RTX 3060 XC. It is the lowest 3060 model they have but it actually worked out not having the back plate because I do not think it would fit with the CPU cooler. Speaking about the cooler this was an incredibly tight fitment. I choose the Dark Rock TF 2. There was only one possible fitment orientation for the cooler. Lastly I choose to get the minimum wattage PSU I needed since its out in the open I wanted the minimum amount of open connectors showing. I choose the Corsair RM550x. I will be using custom CableMod cables soon as well as frame mounted cable combs from Clockwork Industries for a full clean cable run top to bottom. For now I am just using the included cables with the Corsair PSU.
