The Re-Designed Archon
The Archon - A Greek term for "ruler," the Archon comes with specs that will help you rule the battlefield.
The centerpiece of this build is the stunning GeForce RTX 3070. We pair this GPU with an ASUS TUF Gaming X570-PRO (WiFi) motherboard to take full advantage of the 4th Generation PCIe SSD interface. Since we need that sweet Gen 4 SSD, we throw down with a 1TB Sabrent Rocket 4.0 M.2-2280 NVMe. Then we add a 2TB secondary hard drive for extra storage. This platform gives you WiFi 6 (250% faster speeds than WiFi 5), and access to ASUS' Armoury Crate solution to make sure you never fall behind with driver or firmware updates.
We’ve chosen the Ryzen 5 5600X for this system, added the amazing NZXT Kraken Z63 liquid CPU cooler - top notch cooling performance, excellent system monitoring in concert with NZXT's CAM software, and the ability for all kinds of fun and personalization with the programmable LCD screen. (It even plays GIFs. Really.) We paired it with 16 GB of super fast performance RGB DDR4 RAM at 3600MHz speeds.
With data transfer speeds of nearly 5,000 MB/s that can be attained with PCIe Gen 4 SSD, super fast memory, and an awesome Ampere-based GPU, everything about this build is designed to be ready to go all out on any digital battlefield you care to enter.
We wrapped all these hardware goodies in the epic NZXT H510 Elite. This chassis gives the internals the airflow they need, has some amazing lighting features that can be easily managed - along with the Kraken AIO - through NZXT CAM, and even has a vertical GPU mount option for you to show off the brand new RTX 2nd generation GPU. For good measure, we add some custom cable extensions to this rig to round out the polished look.
The Archon comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and updated.
