Not too long ago, actor Henry Cavill – you know, Superman – casually mentioned that he was interested in building a gaming PC. Well, the mad man has actually gone ahead and done it! Cavill uploaded a video to his Instagram account today, demonstrating how he built his new, shiny AMD Ryzen system (sorry, Intel!).
The actor didn’t provide a comprehensive list of parts, but we can tell that he’s a pretty big ASUS fan – the motherboard, GPU (GeForce RTX 2080 Ti), and monitor are clearly ROG-branded items. Cavill also went with G.SKILL’s TridentZ RGB memory and a Samsung PRO NVMe M.2, putting everything into what appears to be a Define case with a glass side panel.
At the end of the video, Cavill realizes that he screwed up with the NZXT cooler and had to re-install it so it wasn’t upside down, but ultimately, his gaming PC effort appears to have turned out good. Now he just needs to show us how it benchmarks and what he’s playing first! (The Witcher 3, perhaps?)
