Build, Design & Look
Our most favourite part about the PC is its beautiful, SLICK and RGB lighting design. There is a transparent side of the PC that shines with all the RGB embedment inside with the components. While all the CPU is covered in matte black, one side of the CPU is totally translucent, and you can have an inside look at all the ports including GPU. You will also find the GeForce logo written in a big bold font that highlights with the RGB lighting.
The front of the PC has diagonal cut that it wholly filled with RGB colour modes. You can change the colours according to your will, but the neon colour RGB lighting stands out with the logo. Above the diagonal, the front is designed with a raised bump, while the lower side is contained with the grills. These air vents also help producing minimum to no noise at all when the PC is under heavier performance. The Republic of Gamers logo on the front comes in a shiny black contrast that goes well with the overall scheme.
Additionally, the PC weighs around 10 kg with the dimensions of 48.1 x 42.1 x 18.9. The stunning face plate makes the PC look sleek and slim, while the glass cover also adds to the elegant attire. Even though, it is quite heavy to be moved from here and there, the looks defy the fact.
