Built this for the girlfriend for collage. She insisted on as much blue as possible. So this is what she got.
Very nice! Such a nice guy doing things for the lady friend ;)
guessing this is a older build or salvaged parts build??
I started writing my comment, and I was like, "wait... this must be an old build"
Good build/ My brother has the same i5, it is a great cpu. I also like your cable management in a case with not of it.
Girlfriend was not to concerned on it, just the outer appearance. but thanks
You could always take a dremel to the mobo plate and give you some holes to work with.
Haha yeah, but that requires way too much effort and care!
...way too much effort?
Take the case out to your garage, open it up, and cut the holes.
Thank you all for the input.
Just a few changes I would have made...
Getting a newer CPU (at least Ivy Bridge, maybe Haswell)
To go with the newer CPU, a newer (as in chipset) motherboard, such as H77
I know not everyone plays games on their computer, but a 6xx series Nvidia GPU (like GT 640 or something of those sorts). I could understand if it was just leftover from something or you wanted to upgrade later, though.
A better, not as cheaply made (Raidmax isn't exactly the best company) case
At least an 80 Plus Bronze PSU, and lower wattage because it looks as though you won't need it
As it is, it's a pretty stable build, but it could use some tweaking. I understand if this was made when those newer things weren't out yet, but if this was recently built, you could have done much better.
I'm pretty sure he's on a budget or this is salvaged/freebies.
Thank's..Yes Nendo this is a salvaged/freebies build. Most of the parts, mob/psu/ram/cpu came from my other build The Red Knight.
