This is our racing simulator / Part 1 – The computer

This post is not sponsored more than Bright Esports is the buyer of the products.

We start with the computer: We have built our computer around a case from Phanteks, P500A D-RGB Black. This case was super easy to build in and we really like the look and feel of it.

For the case we installed the MSI MAG Z590 Tomahawk WiFi motherboard. It fitted great with the case but had some issues finding where all fans and where the power button from the top should be placed.

We went for an 11th generation i7 1170k with the fan: Noctua NH-D15. It was a bit tricky to install the fan but in the end we made it. The fan is super silent and keeps the CPU cold.

As the GPU we use a GeForce 3070 from Gigabyte. We use 4, 8 gb memory from Kingston(DDR4, 3600MHz). For storage we use a M.2 SSD disk and that was super easy to install. We have in total 5 140mm fans installed. Everything is then power by a Phanteks Revolt Pro 1000W.

Within a couple of days we will walk through the simrig equipment and then end with what games and softwares we use when playing.
