New, 25 comments

You can probably swap out a few aesthetic choices to make it a little cheaper

Fortnite is unquestionably one of the biggest games in the world right now, and Ninja is undeniably the game’s star player.

He a multiple tournament winner, including Epic Games’ recent Pro-Am tournament at E3. Ninja, whose real name is Tyler Blevins, is a superstar athlete in the Fortnite community and, like other athletes, that makes his choice of equipment a fascinating topic. People want to know what his computer set up looks like in the same way they want to know what hockey stick Sidney Crosby prefers to use or what cleats Cristiano Ronaldo is sporting.

A new video from Unbox Therapy, one of the most popular tech channels on YouTube, partnered with NZXT to break down Ninja’s setup. The video is sponsored; the build in question is one NZXT partnered with Ninja to produce, and then worked with Unbox Therapy to promote. There’s an option to buy his setup directly through the company, but you don’t need to use NZXT to build your own version.

Both the video and the description on the website list the parts Ninja uses for his own build, with the video proving a few extra details for chosen peripherals (including keyboard and mouse).

All this video really does is help to inform what those individual components are. But we’ve also listed them below. Know going in, however, that Ninja’s build will cost you just under $5,000. You may be able to switch out a few aesthetic choices (the case or light-up memory sticks, for example), but it’s a hefty purchase.

Here’s what you’ll need, according to NZXT and Ninja:

  • NZXT H700I CASE
  • NZXT N7 ATX LGA 1151 MOBO
  • INTEL CORE I7-8700K 3.7GHZ CPU
  • NZXT KRAKEN X62 CPU COOLER
