AMD has teamed up with some of the industry's most influential gamers, content creators, and hardware component manufacturers to deliver a purpose-built PC designed for an exceptional gaming experience with smooth streaming capabilities and tons of horsepower to produce premium content.

At the heart of our influencer's PC, we start with an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processor with 8 cores and 16 threads, ready for elite performance in gaming, streaming, content creation, and intensive multitasking.



We chose to mount the Ryzen 7 2700X on the ASUS ROG STRIX X470-I Gaming motherboard. This mITX board is equipped with ASUS Aura RGB lighting, SupremeFX 8 channel audio, and rock-solid performance.



AMD went with HyperX 16GB of Predator DDR4 RGB high speed memory, capable of speeds up to 4000 MHz and RGB lighting.



For storage AMD chose the HyperX FURY RGB 240GB SSD for a blazing fast primary drive while utilizing Seagate's 4TB Barracuda hard drive to store loads of games and video content. 



Of course, AMD had to gear up our gamers with the world's first 7nm gaming graphics card, AMD Radeon VII, with 16GB of video memory, a triple fan cooling design, and a solid aluminum shroud. It's ready to power ultra-smooth gaming experiences at consistently high FPS, in 1440p, ultrawide, and 4K.



This was all powered by the ASUS ROG Thor power supply, rated at 850W, with a built-in OLED screen that shows just how much power you're drawing and more RGB lighting. The cables were treated with custom sleeves from Mainframe Customs to any color and pattern our influencers wanted. 



All this hardware was built inside the RAIJINTEK PAEAN-M case featuring an open-frame chassis and a tempered front glass panel. We mounted our graphics card with the RAIJINTEK PAXX-S vertical mount GPU Riser bracket and a set of 2 RAIJINTEK IRIS RGB fans. Once we got it all in there, we fitted the CPU with EKWB's AM4 Velocity water blockCoolstream radiatorEK-XRES 140 Revo D5 pumphardline tubing, and Cryofuel coolants with colors ranging from Blood Red to Amber Orange.
