Description

This was my first build. I wanted to build a machine capable of mid range gaming.

I usually play sky rim but with this I think will get back into more games (Runs Skyrim on Ultra high quality which suits me just fine :D)

I chose the liquid cooler as a practical novelty option. Will use again! super quiet as a result, even when I try to push it with a few games. Might bench mark it in the future but not in a rush right now.

First time using an SSD also - for the price its a fantastic step up from a standard HD :)

What's the point of the liquid cooling?

Why have a 600 watt power supply when this build is under 300 watts. Also could of gotten a core i3 for a better graphics card. anyways this is a nice build.

Its my first build so I was thinking when I make my next one I can use this part for a bigger rig next time around :)

Should your liquid cooler power be plugged into the CPU fan header instead of the chassis fan header?

the cooler block is linked to the CPU Fan header, there is a fan behind the rad that is plugged into the chassis fan header :)

Is that what he has though? In the third picture it looks like the cooler block may be plugged into a chassis fan header. Maybe I'm just seeing something different though.

Now that I look again, I think you're right since the white header clearly has a "2" at the end, and that's what I initially thought might've been the CPU fan header

I like :) The only thing that I would suggest: The CX-series Corsair PSU's aren't all that great at higher wattages. Something like this would be a better option (assuming that's within your price range, I can't seem to find GBP pricings for it). For what you have, though, the CX600M is still good. I use a CX500M myself, and I have a much more power-hungry GPU :)

Cool - thanks for the link. If this one gives up the ghost in the future I will look into other options like that :)

The lost symbol I thought was a little underrated. Although, I'd probably use it as a stand myself.
