ASUS recently sent us their PRIME X370-PRO motherboard, so we added in the popular Ryzen 7 1700 processor and the ASUS ROG STRIX OC edition of the Radeon RX 580 to build a $1300 (USD) gaming PC. Deepcool sent us the white version of their CAPTAIN 240 EX CPU cooler to coordinate nicely with the motherboard design and we picked up the Raidmax Sigma and 16 GB of white Corsair Vengeance LPX memory to complete our black and white theme.
Be sure to check out the Completed Build with benchmarks and photos as well as the cable management video (see below).
