The Widowmaker - 49" Super Ultrawide Build

Discussion created by b5nbm on May 10, 2020

So I have only ever gamed on a 1080p 27" monitor, I decided I wanted 1440p and ultrawide so took the plunge and went balls out with a 49" Samsung Super Ultrawide (5120x1440 @ 120hz) and i am in love with it. I had to freshen up the PC to more "Classy" look to match so had a shuffle about, cleaned the system right out and added some EK Indigo Violet fluid  

 

Plus as an extra treat, got myself a new wireless headset to go with an a friendly little headset holder haha. 

 

Update: 21/05/2020 - Decided to move the gpu back to vertical as wasnt seeing much difference in temps surprisingly and also got myself some new Carbon+Purple cable extensions. Will get a full custom set once things are settled a little more.

 

Update: 02/06/2020 - Had to add some red into the mix to show my love of teamred haha, actually goes really well with the purple i think. Also had a little de-clutter and got the shelf centered properly again.
