Description

Linux Ubuntu Budgie Gaming station featuring by today around 60 % of the top 1000 playable games on steam and many more via lutris. Sadly I havent managed yet to adress the RGB lights of the RAM, so its always on rainbow :D. You'ld need to know the right i2c-address, but if you dont it would be russian roulette messing around with it.

 

The system fans are a bit overkill, they get the air from the bottom and transport it to the sides. I have them on the lowest settings, so its basically noiseless. The radiators on the liquid cooling run with a constant of 1000 rpm, which is basically noiseless. Under load, you will only hear the Wraith Prism spinning a bit, but with its switch on silent mode its barely notable, so this whole rig is very noiseless. 

 

The Vega is between 50 °C and 55 °C while gaming and when stress-tested gets to 65 °C. Those are a bit higher temps I accept due to the reduced noise level. But I think that is ok for a Vega.
