This is my magnificent first machine. I haven't purchased a machine in many, many months, so I had to do research.
This machine is primary used for gaming, light streaming, and movie viewing. It brings much merriment to me.
The Thermaltake Frío was missing the mounting screws for the second fan, and I much rather run this machine with the second fan. I found replacements for the mounting screws, but since the installation instructions was no help, I gave it four stars.
I am a bit embarrased of the guts and I will add cable ties to straighten them out. Other than that, I had a great time building this computer and its addition has brought mirth into my life.
Mad props to /g/, http://www.logicalincrements.com, and my boy, Gio for finally convincing me to ditch prebuilts.
