All the power with RGB cooler, fans, and memory wrapped up in a shiny silver ATX case.
Because why not a semi-naked silver superhero riding a surfboard through space on RGB rainbows?

Hey look, if it doesn't perform, at least it has some ARGB. That's what matters, right? Right?

Name: "Unassuming"

Notes: Build pairs a Ryzen5 3600x with a factory OC'd RTX 2070 Super to avoid bottlenecks and faster-timed 16-16-16-36 1T memory to optimize Ryzen's memory controller performance. A PCIe 4.0 1TB SSD takes advantage of additional bandwidth for save-state load times. The 2nd 120mm front fan augments the factory-provided 120mm to allow for more cool air being blown over the GPU. Along with the motherboard's 50A VRM chokes and integrated VRM cooling, a 750-watt 80+ Platinum PSU powers the system quietly and efficiently while providing headroom for later GPU upgrades and CPU overclocking.

Since a vr-system is likely to end up in the living room, I picked one of the smallest cases you can fit all this in and one that doesn't look bad at all. Because it's so cramped I went with a blower style cooler for the gpu and added two casefans for positive pressure.
Also added a fan-splitter because the mainboard only has one casefan-header
