(Showroom) It’s Time for Flashy – Are YOU Game?

Flashy or not, here we come!

Welcome back to the latest post only on BIOSTAR Blog. For those who are wondering what we’ve been up to, read on!

For most of you PC users out there, you guys would probably just us your computer as a tool and probably have never bothered with the DIY hardware configurations. Heck, you could even just get a ready-made one at your nearest computer shop! Sure, they’re good. But why stop at good if you can make it GREAT? And on top of that, make sure everyone knows that THAT computer is YOURS? Well, you can! And we’ll teach you how too! 😛

I know the question that just went through your head: how much would all that cost? If I told you that we could even build an even more cost-effective rig, would you believe me? Well, seeing is believing so let’s get cracking!

Hardware Introduction

International practice: let’s start with getting all that hardware out. In this case, we’ll be using another of BIOSTAR’s boards  – this time the BIOSTAR RACING X370GT7 Motherboard. The ease of controlling the lighting control on this board makes it a great choice amongst the other choices.

Getting a closer look at the RACING X370GT7, the LED light area is the luminous green areas as pictured. The CPU has a power supply cooling area, the I/O ports at the back, completed with the HiFi audio area and south bridge cooling area. Comes with RGB lighting effects, you can choose to turn off or change the colours of the lights via the software that comes with the board (read here for more details).

As for the VGA Cards, we chose our “ancestral heirloom” of the Dylan RX480 with a simple and clear structure, turbo cooler with no lighting effect.

As for the memory and the SSD, we chose black and red as our main colours. In this case, we’re using ADATA and SanDisk respectively.

As for the chassis and power supply, we’re using HuntKey’s large chassis with 1000W power supply. Looking great huh?

Here comes the highlight! We got lights and controllers for 2. Since we can choose how long we wanted, we got the 10m version. With the controller, we could also control the lighting via our phones!

Not forgetting the fan cooler of course (otherwise we would have just wasted all our efforts wouldn’t we?).

Now let’s put all the parts together. One benefit of having a large chassis is that we have a lot of space to work with and we can even put in more hardware and still have a lot of space to work with (which is beneficial for cooling or for future upgrades!).

SUCCESS!

Let’s check it out when it’s LIGHTED UP. Check it out with the chair lighted up too!

The table still looks kinda underwhelming, doesn’t it? Well, check this out:

The overall effect looks pretty good for us! If you’re fickle-minded and can’t decide on the colour, you could always change that later using the BIOS software. Nonetheless, the light bars is relatively large, and so the corners and edges of the tables weren’t wired too prettily… But that’s another job for another day… Let’s just make do with what we have now!

Imagine having one of these rigs turned on in the night. The embodiment of flashiness? Definitely. A game right now? Sure, but are YOU game?
