Aesthetic Goals: An extremely clean black/white build when lighting is off. Extensive but not overdone lighting with fully addressable RGB to allow for quick and easy adjustment of color schemes when lighting is on.
Function Goals: High airflow with intake fans feeding GPU directly and Push/Pull intake fans on 360mm Radiator for CPU cooling. Unrestricted side exhaust w/o dust filter to sufficiently balance total case airflow towards neutral but maintain net positive pressure.
Performance Goals: 8 core / 16 thread processor for improved multi-tasking, render speeds and increased overhead in heavily threaded video games. 32GB of 3200Mhz CL14 Samsung B-Die to maximize Ryzen performance and to further support heavy multitasking and background processes while gaming. RTX 2080 to support emerging graphics technologies and maintain high framerates @ 1440p 165hz.
A custom loop with hard tubing and pastel white coolant was considered but I wanted to keep things as simple and clean as possible initially, allowing me to get a good look at the layout and baseline aesthetic. That and I definitely had already surpassed my initial planned budget for this build. Feedback positive or negative is welcome and will help me to decide where to go next with my design.
