I do love my Kraken Chroma headset, even if my one is held together with duct tape 😂😂😂

Finally upgraded!!!

Had a tough time picking parts but ultimately chose to splurge a little. Stayed up a couple nights to build it and had fun, especially when it went into a BSOD loop.

Everything runs like a charm now and im really happy. Although the cpu and gpu fans are horrendous and Im looking into maybe water cooling both soon.

That's a nice computer specs and setup. Did you build the desk yourself?

The negative consequence of keeping your computer on your desk is that even a quiet system is easy to hear roaring under load.
