SnowLight

SnowLight is a white beauty. It' nothing special, just a nice case, refined by some black details.
But its true values come from within with a nice and clean look, rounded off by some highlights.
Yes, I am talking about RGB.

As this is my first build, I was more concerned making it work than trying to create the most amazing build ever.
However, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. The glass window offers a good view of the components and make the build shine with some amazing RGB.

Planned are currently an upgrade of the cooling solution to an an AIO from Corsair or NZXT, as well as getting some nice cable(extensions) for some extra flash!
On long term plans, I think of getting another 16 GB of RAM, as well as a Samsung 970 Evo or somthing similar.

Well, plans changed a bit since last time. I finally upgraded my cooler. But I abandoned the AIO and went with a Noctua NH-D15 cromax.black instead. Why? First of all it's FINALLY available in black which is awesome. And second, I added an AIO to a friends PC lately and... It kinda sucked. It wasn't the best model but we head problems fitting the radiator and my case is quite small anyway. Also, the cooling performance did not impress me all that much. And the Noctua is a beast. It's basically near silent at all times and the overall temperatures went from 70-75 degrees celsius under full syntatic load to rock-solid 55 degrees max.
So yeah, I lost some of that shiny RGB but no regrets on that side what so ever!
Also disk space ran out so I added another Crucial P1 (1TB). And while the case was already open I fixed some of my cabling mistakes. I am still missing my fancy extensions though... Hope they follow soon. Similar to another RAM kit and a higher-quality SSD.
Maybe I could also add some more RGB... at least, I just lost that cooler...

Images are also still pending. New ones of the upgraded machine as well as better pics in generel.
