              Seems pretty cool. But question, if it's internal temps sit around the 70 - 80° area, will the components hold up well over time?

                  I always enjoying your video because of good content and a lot of clear informations about PCs :D
                  It's insane to turn an old console into PC but still looks great

                                        BTW Horizon 4 runs at 30fps with perfectly executed motion blur and frame pacing creating the illusion that it hits 60fps

I might be wrong if its good or not. But 8k? That is the greatest quality right now. Its called Xbox Project Scarlett. I might be wrong btw if its better than ps4. But 8k is crazy.
