WHAT UP PCPP! Thanks for checking out my build! My name is Ray, I was born and raised in California but now I'm living in Australia.
[Reason for Name/Parts Rationale]
I've named my first build 'HOOPLAH' for two reasons: being a novice and being broke. Let me explain, first I've been saving up for this for quite some time now which means a lot of time to learn and plan out my ideal build. Which leads to reason two: being a noob. In this day and age with the internet, I don't have to talk to that one awkward guy working at Fry's Electronics. There are hundreds of places I could research further so after hearing everyone's input and making literally a million changes to my parts list I waded through all the HOOPLAH and finally decided on the parts for my build. And yes, also that one scene from Spongebob.
At this point I don't even remember why each part was chosen other than weighing in factors anybody would: price, performance, reliability, aesthetic, etc.. If you're really curious though I'd be happy to answer to best of my memory lol.
[Reason for Build]
This ones pretty straightforward lmao. So far I've been through three laptops but recently developed a desire for something more powerful and professional cause I prefer working at a desk personally. Uses include internet surfing, random levels of gaming, general school work, and the occasional photo/video edit.
[Don't Question the Stickers]
I know someone's gonna say something about it. Here's a small bit about me, since around middle school I've been part of Hip-Hop culture most particularly Graffiti. One of the ways I USED to tag is through stickers so I've been collecting random stickers from various places from years btw all my laptops are covered in stickers so its kinda my way of keeping tradition.
[The Build Itself]
Not much to talk about. It took one whole day and it's all thanks to bequiet! lol I spent like 2 hours just installing the Dark Rock 3 on cause the instructions weren't very clear and I'm a moron but everything else was easy as pie.
[Please Be Gentle, Senpai]
Thanks again for checking out my first build, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
