I have been planing this build for months. Then I finally pulled the trigger. I bought all the parts at Micro Center because they had great discounts for everything. I will be going to college soon so i wanted the case a bit smaller than a atx case and larger than a mitx case for airflow. Any Questions? Just ask.

Best all around processor for price and performance.

CPU Cooler

Keeps cpu super cold. No problems with it being to loud.


No problems. Great audio boost.


Bought this at Microcenter for $80. Best price for 16gb 3000


Best SSD for the Price, Performance, and Size Micro center $120

Video Card

Stays Super quiet and cool with the three fans and software. Asus aura lighting software is fantastic.


Best case for the looks, quality, and price

Perfect Size Perfect Performance

Perfect size, perfect performance, not quite perfect look. Because perfection doesn't exist. Except for me, because I'm f l a w l e s s.

It's a nice build, good job.

Beg pardon, this is an extremely silly question but would you be willing to measure the height of your RAM sticks for me? I'm planning on building with this RAM in Define Nano S which has a maximum 35mm RAM clearance if you want to install water-cooling.

Thank you!!

Ok. I will once I get a chance!!

Are you going to be water cooling? I checked out your build. Looks good except for the cooler. If you want a CPU cooler with good ram clearence. Get the cryorig h7 or the cm 212 evo. They are both great and around the same price.
