Building on a Barrowch STAR1

  • by

The Barrowch Star1 is one of our top favorite PCs to build. If you’re looking for this PC let us know we can customize one for you!

We put together this beauty back in October of 2021. It took us a little while to build this one as we took out time to ensure it was perfect.

When we found the MPG X570S CARBON EK X from MSI & EKWB and had to build it on the Start1 Case. A EVGA 3080 ti xc3 was chosen and we used the EKWB EK-Quantum Vector XC3 RTX 3080/3090 GPU Water Block, Nickel/Plexi.

We went with the Intel Core i9-11900KF and at the time was top of the line Intel CPU.
