This is like my dream coming true...I've always been wanting to build a computer, but because of my circumstances, there was not a chance for me to do so. In the past, I had experience of fixing old desktops and took apart old laptops for fun. Never had played with any new toys until now! XD
I was so busy putting everything together that I only took one picture @.@ Will take more pictures later. Right now, I'm worry that the cpu cooler will be blocking the place for my graphics card...and I'm struggling to install windows 7 on it...(just found out there is something missing from this mobo that made it tricky)
Originally, I was going for 4690k, then I waited for skylake 6600k and the last moment, I decided to go for the 6700k for the thread because I'll be using this computer for photo editing, and other graphical tasks.
It has a few driver cash related to its HD530.
Motherboard. I've waited their mini-itx for a long time until I gave up and got this matx when it was on sale. I guess it is still a good choice since there is an extra pci lane for a future upgrade (not planning on crossfire)
Fan header can be placed in a better place for cleaner cable routing.
Enough said, cheapest one I got~
Since the computer will be right beside me, I really need to make sure it doesn't make too much noise.
One thing to be aware of is if you are going to mount a single rad on the rear, it will be in the way of the side for either the sound damping foam or any cooling fan to be mounted there.
The optical driver bay's screws are very hard to remove. Guess this is only applies to particular unit.
ya, its an average or even below average psu, but I'm poor...
Monitor: that AH-IPS is what made me purchase this monitor. I like the screen size too. not too large or too small.
