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 a brand new motherboard from the legendary ASUS ROG series - the Strix Z590-E Gaming. This board is the newest Intel chipset and boasts WiFi 6 (250% faster than WiFi 5) and access to ASUS' Armoury Crate software suite so you'll always be connected to the latest driver and chipset enhancements. Such a high performance board can only have a high performance storage solution, so we opt for the 1TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus version of an M.2-2280 NVMe SSD, and we also add a 2TB secondary hard drive for extra storage.
We’ve chosen the Intel Core i7-10700K for this system that has core clock speeds up to a whopping 5.1 Ghz. Yeah, that started with a "5" on purpose. To keep that power from melting down, we added an aftermarket 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 performance RGB DDR4 RAM which we overclock to 3200MHz. 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.
As always, we juice our premium level builds with nothing but fully modular, retail version power supplies from Corsair, EVGA, and Seasonic. We up it to 850-watts for this one to allow plenty of power headroom during extreme gaming sessions.
The Archon comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and updated.
