    I loved my ROG G20 Desktop, but i had to do something about the idle GFX card temps..

    so i built a completely new rig out of the main components:

    Starting rig: ASUS ROG G20CB-DB71 (with a GFX card upgrade)
    *came with a core i7 6700
    *came with 16GB of DDR4 RAM (laptop sized RAM) @2133
    * GTX 1080 FE (came stock with an unmarked plasticky GTX 1070
    *1TB HDD
    *Cheapish wired ASUS Mouse/ASUS red-backlit keyboard
    *dual powerbrick (one @180 and the other @230)


    NEW NZXT S340 white build (i love the S340 for cable management alone plust its smexxy)

    *SAME Core i7 6700 from the G20CB
    *New ASUS Z270F Gaming Motherboard with Aura Sync
    *New Gskill TridentZ RGB DDR4 16GB (2x8) RAM @3200
    *SAME GTX 1080 FE that i upgraded my ROG G20 with
    *SAME 1TB HDD from the G20 BUT with a NEW Sandisk 240GB SSD PLUS
    *NEW Thermaltake SMART 700W PSU
    *Same ASUS Keyboard but with a Logitech G602 Wireless Mouse

    Cons of this new build:
    I really am sad that i am no longer using a small form factor desktop rig.. it was highly convenient to use and move around. with my new build I lost my on board wifi/bluetooth functionality coming from the G20CB (had to get a usb 3.0 wifi adapter and will be getting a bluetooth dongle as well soon)

    Pros:
    My GTX 1080 FE doesnt sit at 84C under load anymore. (no more thermal throttling). and everything runs noticeably faster and more stable- due to better airflow and better components
    Just a beautiful rig to look at with Minimal RGB lighting and sleek cable management and beautiful components.

    Grats on the upgrade, looks clean!
    I used to put stickers on my cases some years back but nowadays they make me cringe. Nevertheless it looks slick :thumbup:
    What kinda mods you planning on doing?

    Your case looks clean, and your cable management is excellent. Good luck with the mods.

    Thank you!!!


    I plan on actually getting an EKWB X360 kit. and a different PSU, although im not quite sure what PSU i want to go with.. i want one with a really good stability and it has to be modular. not concerned about the color of the PSU (but if i had to say it would be white and black like my current one.)... I plan on getting my case hydro dipped with some destiny 2 concept art. I actually REALY want to make this a Destiny/D2 themed build. so Maybe red, white, and other colors from the Tower (think crucible, lord shaxx) or maybe even Iron Banner themed with green gold and white with Wolf emblems.. Then again, Siva could be an awesome theme too (but its common to have red and black)

    This is my PC running 4k FH3 (Make sure you set youtube to play 2160p60 to get the full effect!
