Description

So first build for casual gaming.

Everything went pretty smoothly. Only thing I'm not a fan of is the cable management. Since this case has zero cable management I did my best. Photos don't do it justice but the airflow is clear, and thats the main thing.

As for the parts. I would not recommend the coolermaster elite 430 with psu. The thing is cheap and there is a reason. PSU will be the first thing upgraded. Most likely followed by a case.

Have yet to start over clocking but the bios on this mobo look real nice. Will have to read up on some OC stuff, as I have no idea. Anyone have any experience?

As for price I managed to get the list below for £792. Top of my budget but I think it will do me proud

Since you have a window, sleeved cables would have been nice but for the price you did great!

Nice build. I, too, made the mistake of buying that case. I'm looking to upgrade it soon. Already got a good PSU though.

Keep buildin' bro.

Corsair all the way! I would've gotten a K70 to go along with your PC but I think your current KB will fit you fine.

Good. No major problems here, this is a good example of how a PC should be built.

PSU came with the case. Was a bundle deal. No info on it so was buying blind.
