It takes a lot of time, effort, and thought to create the perfect PC build. Not only is there a mountain of potential problems to overcome, but selecting a perfect CPU and GPU combination is also of paramount importance. Sometimes, an i5-8600K and GeForce GTX 1080 really need to be combined with a miniature sports car.

A PC builder who has created a system that has been called “Contrasting Dynamics” has clearly gone with speed as one of the contrasting dynamics. Not only does the desktop by “Shastarocks” feature a zippy Coffee Lake 6-core i5-8600K processor, it also comes with a PNY GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB XLR8 Gaming Overclocked graphics card. This nippy solution speeds along at a boost clock of 1,848 MHz while dazzling with its black and red livery.

In terms of memory and storage, Shastarocks once more went with speed contrasted by looks. 16 GB of Team Dark DDR4-300 RAM was chosen, upping the ante with the red and black color scheme. A 2 TB Seagate Barracuda HDD operating at 7200 RPM offers the bulk of the storage solution but is aided by ADATA’s XPG SX6000 256 GB M.2-2280 SSD. MSI gets in the act with its Z370 SLI PLUS gaming motherboard with its various boosts and RGB lighting effects.

All this speed and design is housed in a Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic ATX case accompanied by a garish red liquid-cooling system and no less than eight Deepcool RF 120 3-in-1 fans (three in one different color modes that include “breathing”, “static”, and “multi-color cycling”). It seems once you’ve put all that lot together and added the necessary LED lighting, the only thing left to do, apart from game the living daylights out of it, is add a tiny red supercar to the custom build – just to remind people how fast it probably is.
