Hello PC Builders,
More treat than trick with our latest update, today we’re adding another 3 brand new partners to the game – plus some special Halloween decorations to our original workshop – to get you in the spooky mood!
ASRock has been high on the requested partner list for quite some time now, so we’re hugely pleased to be adding a wide range of their motherboards in this update – alongside a selection of their GPUs.
Colorful is one of the largest hardware manufacturers in China, and we’re excited to have a range of their GPUs and motherboards now available for use in the game.
HyperX is another much-requested partner to our line-up, and from this update you’ll be able to equip various new peripherals, RAM and even an RGB SSD!
