Simply White

Wanted to make a build for streaming, gaming, and work. Decide to go with a mATX for its’ compact so i decided to go with the Corsair 280x series. Love the case even though it only fits a gpu up to 300mm.
Issues: only issues i ran into this build was when i bought a used Asus Rog Strix Z370 from microcenter. After my build completion, i had a benchmark of 4000 on 3DMark. Games stuttered a lot, so i thought it was a gpu issue. I decided to swap the rtx on my old build and it ran flawlessly, at that moment i knew it was the mobo. Swapped the asus for an ASRock z390, and it now runs smooth as butter! Hope you guys enjoy!
