    This RAM fits perfectly, I love the dark hardware configurations. Patriot VIPER Blackout 128Gb DDR4, Asus MXIIE and EKWB Magnitude :)

    After a lot of delays in the procurement of GPU solutions, the decision on the Asus STRIX RX 5700 XT fell. I know that many will say that it is not good enough as the Nvidia 30 series, but it is good enough for gaming, which is what the ASTRA project strives for.

    Yes, the plates are made of steel, they will not weld, they will be assembled with screws.

    A good monitor stand must be heavy and stable, so there is no compromise. I estimate that the case with the hardware will weigh about 10-12 kg

    Opportunities like this come once in a lifetime! To be sponsored by such a great company, which inspires us for many years now, is truly an honor.
