things to change/improve next build━

    • use a liquid cooler - fan coolers are bulky and hard to clean

    • get fully rgb ram for color changes - not stuck with one color
    • use a base white color scheme for better rgb color compatibility
    • spend more money on a graphics card and less on a cpu - no need to buy intel
      • get an amd cpu
    • only use ssds - NO SPINNING DRIVES - hdd's very loud
