About a year ago, I built my first gaming pc, and today I will try to recreate it in a video game called “PC Building Simulator” So let’s see what happens.
Welcome to our virtual workshop. In my original real-life video, the steps I took to build my pc are different than the way I will do it in the game, but I’ll try to do everything as closely as possible. Let’s start by getting the same Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB case. After taking off the sides, top panel and the filter from the top now we are ready to install the motherboard.
Building My Gaming PC
In my gaming rig, I have the ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero, but the PC Building simulator only has the ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero (Wi-Fi AC). The main difference is the Wi-Fi option.
When I built my gaming PC, I installed my 6 Cores Processor before placing the motherboard into the case. In the video game, the order you make the pc is not the same. So, let’s put the Intel Core i7-8700K Processor in the already mounted motherboard.
The next step is to install the internal hard drive. I have the Western Digital Blue 500 GB M2 SSD. In this video, I am using the Patriot Scorch 512GB. It seems like it is the closest option we have.
At the time I built my gaming PC, I only had 2 Corsair VENGEANCE RGB 8GB memory modules. Now I have 4. In PC Building Simulator the closest match is the Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro in white. It has the same memory speed of 3000 megahertz.
Time to install the CPU Cooler but first let’s apply a little bit of thermal paste. I have the CORSAIR H60, but in this video, I am using the CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i v2 Liquid CPU Cooler. This one has two fans on each side of the radiator, in my real life pc we just added on an extra LED fan.
About The closest match, we have in PC Building Simulator to my EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Graphics Card or GPU is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 TI Kingpin video card. So I have to go with this one.
Same goes for the power supply or PSU. It has the same EVGA brand name and the same wattage. Which is 850 watts, but it is a different model EVGA Supernova 850 T2 instead of EVGA 850 GQ Gold.
As I mentioned earlier, my gaming rig has 3 extra APEVIA 120mm Pink LED case fans. For the purpose of matching the pink LED color in the video game, I am using EKWB EK-Vardar EVO fans.
Let’s start the computer and adjust the lighting to pink. Place the top filter back with the glass panels. Here we go. I present to you a close copy of my real life gaming rig that I created in PC Building Simulator.
