Just did a transition from Full Tower to Micro ATX gaming rig.
I can now bring my PC if it permits me to do so. This move not only saves some table space, but it also alleviates me from that back pain whenever I move my things around. Always been a fan of Micro ATX setup due to its small form factor and space saving feature. Downside for me is, I have a big hands and managing cable in this small box is a pain in the a*ss. But, it’s all worth it once done. Right now, I’m looking forward to adding some lights as the RGB of the Asus Motherboard is somehow blocked by my GPU. S*cks.
My PC specs:
- Intel i7 7700k @ stock speed
Asus Rog Strix Z270G mATX
Palit GTX 1080 Gamerock Edition
Cryorig A40 Ultimate Edition
Kingston HyperX 8GB x 2 DDR4
2.5TB HDD (Seagate/WDD)
Seasonic M12II 620w
Not shown in the picture:
- Asus RoG Swift PG348Q 3440×1440 Ultrawide 60-hz100hz (OC)
- Steelseries Arctis 7 Wirless Gaming Headset
- Logitech Wireless Keyboard
- Rapoo Wireless Mouse
- Edifier HC2300 2.1 Speakers (this is the only thing that is years old in my set up)
I can play AAA games with this machine. Be it 1080p or 1440p. Haven’t tried 4K resolution yet. But, I’m sure it’ll be great experience and hopefully my rig can handle that demanding resolution. Since I’m on Ultrawide, it is a mixed settings to achieve 100fps (PG348Q’s max refresh rate is 100hz in OC mode). But, with the help of gysnc, I have no issues with tearing and stuttering. Planning to go SLI in the near future since my GTX 1080 is still fairly strong even the GTX 1080 Ti is already out. Adding another GTX 1080 will boost more my gaming experience and hopefully my rendering works in the future.
