PC Building Simulator | PC Update v1.12

HELLO PC BUILDERS!


Hot on the heels of v1.11 we’ve got another major update. In this patch we’re releasing the often-requested 11th generation Intel processors, adding our first Z590 chipsets, keeping temperatures down with new cooling solutions and expanding our range of high-end power supplies.


First though, can I offer you some Scandinavian minimalism in this trying time?


FRACTAL DESIGN WORKSHOP DLC



Today we’re collaborating with the Fractal Design team to bring their modernist zen aesthetic to our latest partner workshop DLC, complete with a landscape garden to help you unwind from those stressful overclocking sessions.
