Sakura Build (Pink and White Gaming/Streaming PC)

The video for how I built this PC is up on YouTube!! ✩ I worked super hard on making it and it's also beginner friendly! It's on my channel 'celestefleurs' and here's the link: https://youtu.be/Vqk2Bv-820M
NOTE: Some of the parts I couldn't find on here, but my PCPartPicker list is up to date and much more accurate! For example, my GPU is the 3060ti Founder's Edition, but I couldn't see it on the list so had to put 3080.

My first-ever PC build made for gaming, streaming, editing and animating! My set-up consists of entirely pink/white and I wanted my PC to match, since I like my workstation to feel bright and welcoming. It actually cost me just over £2,000 to build, but PCpartpicker doesn’t have some of the prices linked for some parts so please ignore the total it gives! I actually need to get more RAM for it, because I've come to realise that 16GB is definitely not enough to be colour grading 4k footage.

Since I couldn’t get my hands on the original case I wanted -the InWin 101 Pink-, I made some mock-up concepts of the 4000D Airflow with pink bezels + dust cover instead of grey, before spray-painting it. I used Rustoleum’s Painter’s Touch in Candy Pink and topcoated with Tamiya Color TS-80 Flat for an ultra matte finish.

The airflow feels great, especially with 6 fans in the case, so I’m not too worried about temps. The radiator and back fans are set to adjust depending on the temperature of my CPU, but I may play around with fan speed in the BIOS to get them running a bit faster. The motherboard I’m using does require a wifi card, but I just tied the extra wiring up neatly and popped the antenna on the side panel since its magnetic —it’s totally invisible. Since I’m using only a 1TB SSD for now, I was able to remove the HDD trays from the basement for lots of room to manage the PSU cables! [Note: the white motherboard I chose to use doesn’t have a USB-C front header —so the port for it on top of the chassis doesn’t work, however I factored this in when building! It’s a non-issue for me personally, as I have little use for a USB-C slot on my PC!]

For my first build I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out, and no problems so far!! ♡ (Just had to make sure to flash the BIOS to get it to POST!)
