I would like to preface my post with a Thank You message. THANK YOU PC Partpicker. You made this entire process so much more approachable and thank you to all of the other individuals in the community, your reviews, pictures and stories made this process so enjoyable.
I have wanted to do a custom PC for about 2 years now, and I recently had the opportunity to build one. So, obviously, I jumped at the chance to do it. This is my first build and I love it. The overall experience of building this computer was wonderful, and I definitely will be building PCs from now on. I use it for gaming and school work, so nothing crazy. I had no difficulties at all during the entire process (shockingly), and it posted on my first attempt, which was a relief to say the least. I neglected to take pics of the actual build and for that I apologize, but I hope my after shots will suffice. I will however take photos of the upgrades so it'll balance out, hopefully. This build is not "finished", there are items that I wanted but were out of my budget that will be added later. The two items that I want the most are a higher tier GPU and a monitor, probs 1440p. Anyway, thank you for reading, I hope you like my build.
If there is anything you want to see or know just ask.
Please excuse my Taco Bell quality photos, they were taken with my phone.
Also, braided cables are definitely in my future.
AIO Water cooler for the cpu. Not sure which one but something with a 280mm rad, and corsair. Second set of ram. Gaming SSD GPU - 1080ti or equivalent 1440p monitor Noctua intake fans. I will upload temps and all that stuff later.
Fast AF. Shreds everything thrown at it. Hyper 212 does a great job at cooling it.
Best processor I have yet to own.
Cheap. Really cheap and cools wonderfully. 5 stars.
The fan sounds like a small turbine when set to 100% but I don't see any reason to have it that high anyway.
Phenomenal motherboard. Works perfectly, and the RGB is a nice touch but ins't mind shattering.
It's ram, it's fast, it looks great. 5 stars.
I will get the light kit a some point in the future. They already have lights underneath the silver heat spreaders, the light kit just allows them to be seen better.
Blazing fast, good storage, perfect boot and program drive.
Fast for what it is, no complaints. I use it for game and file storage.
Wonderful card, and it inst as loud as everyone says the reference blowers are. I didn't need anything hardcore right now, ill get something phat later on when I get a new monitor, but this is the perfect place holder.
Beautiful, plenty of space, good space for cable management, the case fans are surprisingly good. They aren't stupid loud or weak, I am very impressed.
It's a power supply, its platinum, eco mode, silent, love it. 5 stars.
Looks great in my case, it's completely silent, works perfect for me rear exhaust.
Perfect entry level mechanical keyboard. I will get something with more pizzazz later on.
Its tenkeyless, if you're into that sort of thing.
It has Cherry MX Blue EQUIVALENT key switches. They are NOT cherry switches.
