Introduction Hello everyone and welcome to my first PC build on the LTT forums, my first topic and my first post. I have been a fan of LTT and what he and Luke and everyone does for around a year and a half now. The last time I built a computer was over 5 years ago, I had kind of lost interest in computers and in being on the bleeding edge of tech. Linus and his insane videos got me interested in building a new PC again. The parts have been ordered. The computer is together and it has turned out great.

I had initially toyed around with the idea of actually doing a build in the Lian Li PC-O8 since the first time i saw it back in May, since i thought it was an amazing looking case. I had initially decided not to, but then i saw the Build log for The Compensator and decided that i would do a similar build to that one, for a more modest price. It still ended up being an expensive build in the end, but the performance is amazing. The focus of this build was top of the line performance with the best looking PC parts available at the moment. hence the name "Showcase". The Prebuild All of the parts layed out and ready to be unboxed and assemble, i held off on taking anything out of the box until everything had arrived to add to the experience of building this beast. The Finished product It posts! no issues at all found actually, it posted the first time i hit the power button and to date i have ran into zero issues with this build Cable Management Just used some color matched cable ties to tighten everything up, this back compartment isnt visible with the side on but if your going to do a build, you should do it right. I know some people are more partial to twist ties or velcro, I understand the advantages of using those types of things, but to me, i prefer the look of cable ties. Additional Build Pictures The rest of the pictures are going to be put inside of a spoiler tag, i was quite happy with how the build turned out so i snapped a handful of pictures and i know that not everyone likes to scroll through a huge number of pictures And with that this build is done! I am ready for Fallout 4 and for future games at 1440p and 4K for quite a while id say. This build took me around 4-5 months to plan out, source the parts, and end up building this last week. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as i enjoyed putting it together, thanks for taking the time out of your day to view my build!
