AVADirect BattleBox Ultimate X370 Gaming System Overview
The X370 version of the BattleBox Ultimate is built inside of the NZXT H440, which is a great case. With the system powered on we can see that AVADirect has installed some RGB LEDs inside the case as well.
The side panel window on the case really shows off the hardware inside and the lighting helps brighten things up inside. Looking into the window we have a very clean build.
Opening the side panel up is easily done by removing two thumbscrews. The RGB LED strip that is installed is from CableMod, which is a standard for most people adding strips to their systems. The strip sits towards the front of the case and illuminates our motherboard and surrounding components.
Taking a look at the components the first thing that sticks out is our graphics card, which is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder’s Edition card. The card is from EVGA, but sadly AVA Direct does not offer any other GPU options for the BattleBox Ultimate X370. I would have liked to been able to select a custom GTX 1080 Ti as they run cooler and definitely look better. Sitting under the GPU is our M.2 NVMe drive, which is the Samsung 250GB 960 EVO. It is used for the main OS drive.
You will notice that there are individually sleeved cables coming off our graphics card. Actually our entire system is outfitted with EVGA Red individually sleeved cables. This is a $115 upgrade, but is definitely worth it and makes every power cable in your system a sleeved cable. Also AVADirect sends you the entire kit, so even if they don’t use certain cables you’ll have them if you plan on upgrading.
As far as our CPU goes we have the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, which is being cooled by the Corsair H100i v2 AiO Liquid Cooling solution. We have 16GB of HyperX Fury DDR4 2400MHz Memory.
Taking the back panel off the system we can see all of those red individually sleeved cables and the nice cable management that AVADirect has done. I always hate doing cable management so it is nice to have AVADirect take care of it for us.
There is a second hard drive in the system, it is the Seagate 1TB BarraCuda. This will of course be for your games and other files.
