Complete novice build. Built in Sept. 2013 with limited knowledge of parts. Youtube was my classroom. I just kinda winged it buying parts although I knew enough to match processor, motherboard and ram. Always wanted to try a build so here is my first attempt. After screwing parts in and out a few times trying to get a feel for this it was quite enjoyable. Mounting the water cooler was a bit tough though. I bought parts from Newegg but had to RMA them for various reasons. Then settled on Micro Center. Running the cables/wiring was a bit of a challenge also. I don't know if this rig is running a little hot idling at 40c. I have the radiator pulling in, front fan pulling in and two top mounted fans pushing out the top. It never crashed even after one hour at full load. Please feel free to comment and offer opinions.
