Description

Well this is my first computer build ever, as well as my first go with painting and wow it was quite the experience! Needless to say this build is far from perfect and there are quite a few things I would have done slightly different going back, but to say I don't love this computer would be a lie. Boot times are wonderfully quick, and the games run very well.

A few things to note about this build, I have no immediate desire to over clock but got the k for the option in the long. The color scheme is based off Eva 01 Motherboard was wonderfully friendly, and the colors work inside the case well. The PSU is working well, but in hind site I would have chose something different not because of problems with the PSU itself, but because of the wires. They are incredibly stiff and short making cable management an effort I eventually surrendered to. Overall it was fun, I learned alot! Thanks for taking the time to take a look at my computer!

From these pictures I did do a bit more cable management after these photos were taken, mainly with the cords behind the GPU.

Wonderful. Like the case, I have a pink one picked out for the wife / daughters... I may just have to change it and do my own artist-like work on something, the thought hadn't even crossed my mind.

I used rattle cans, which is great but its not very durable, I don't really mind because I really baby my computers, but its just a thought. If you look theirs guides for spray paint as well as automotive paint. But yeah, its a lot of fun, just order the case first, its quite a bit of prep work, but I think it's worth it

What many people don't know is that this is Cooler Master's Toy Story line. This is the Lightyear model, the Woody model will come out later this year.

Nice build man, how is the i5 working for you because I pan on upgrading my i3 to an i5 later on.

 
 
Mishiy [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Haven't really had any problems with the i5 so far. With a cheap 12 dollar cooler I kicked it up to 4.0ghz without any problems at all.
