Ortus Part 2

Due to the ongoing worldwide situation, many of our projects have been delayed including Ortus. Given the circumstances, we have had to change things up a little, going from a black and orange build to a black and red, Republic of Gamers styled theme.

To kick things off on the hardware side, we have decided to go with the ASUS Z390-H. This board revitalises the classic ROG red-and-black colour scheme but adds in the ASUS cyber-text pattern. It looks fantastic and takes us back to the older ROG boards and the styling that the fans love.

The CPU of choice carries on the old school theme, going with the Intel 8086K. A big shout out to Intel for sending this over for us. Essentially an 8700K, 6 cores and 12 threads and topping out at 5GHz, the limited edition chip will serve us well in this build.

Hopefully as things start getting back to some sort of normality over the next few weeks we can move on and get this build going. I still have Mistral to finish but thats waiting on my 3D printer to arrive so that we can print out the new name plate for the PSU shroud.
