Hello everybody! It's been a bit of a tough last few months for PC building, what with GPU and RAM prices skyrocketing. So to help you out, we teamed up with the folks at AMD, Thermaltake, Gigabyte, and Asus to bring one lucky UK reader the chance to win a fully modded and water-cooled rig this Easter!
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus AX370-Gaming 5
Memory: 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB 3,000MHz CL15 DDR4
Graphics: Asus Radeon RX 470 Strix 4GB
Storage: 256GB Samsung SM961 NVMe M.2
Storage: 2TB WD Blue
Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower DPS-G RGB 750W Gold
Case: Thermaltake View 27
Cooling: CPU Custom Water Loop with 360mm Copper Radiator + TT Premium Riing Plus RGB Fans
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Themed around the character Genji from popular first-person shooter Overwatch, this rig sits in a View 27 chassis that's been completely remodelled internally. The inside was gutted and replaced with a custom, matte white acrylic setup, complete with a glowing 'Dragonblade' that sits proudly in front of the power supply cover. As you would expect, it comes complete with a host of RGB options, should you wish to use them. Not only are the radiator fans RGB, but so are the reservoir, motherboard, GPU, 'Dragonblade' decal (limited owing to the default green construction), CPU waterblock, and PSU! We've set these to a fetching green to be in keeping with the theme of the character, but you can customise it to whatever you wish, or off if you're boring.
The water-cooling comes courtesy of Thermaltake, and with a beefy 360mm copper radiator for the CPU you should be able to stay cool on even the hottest days. Since yearly maintenance is very much an important factor with a water-cooled system, the build features a drain port under the PSU shroud along with pump speed access for easy refilling.
Shipping limitations mean we can only offer this to our UK audience - sorry everyone else!
