Description

First off let me say that this build was a lot of fun to put together.

Pros of this Build: 1. I can play games 2. I can record games 3. I can stream games

Cons: 1. None so far

There are a few things I would like to address before the comments go wild about my first time building. Yes I know the cable management sucks. I actually went back before I installed Windows and fixed it up with zip ties. Now it looks tidy. Next thing is about the case. The case was a pain in the butt because of the back cable management hole for the cpu power and expansion brackets. My sister helped me a lot because of her small hands she was able to route the cable back there and put it through that small hole and connect it. The second thing is about the expansion slots. You have to pop out metal which could easily cut you so that you can insert video card. Also is my cpu fan facing the wrong direction because in other videos the fan is facing towards the memory. I really don't want to change the orientation because it was so hard to mount that giant hamburger of a cooler. Other than that the build process went smoothly and I am enjoying my build! (There is an optical drive in this build, but I got it from another pc and where is my Splinter Cell Blacklist Code?)

Nice! but lil suggestion. Take it off the carpet. Can damage the psu because it need cold airflow. although won't affect it much but help the psu last lil longer.

Nice, and your cpu fan/cooler has a sleeve bearing, I believe that type is supposed to be used in a vertical position for low noise/long life. Hmmm, b3dog... I've heard that name before.

So does that mean I put it in right? That is cool that you have heard of my name before. Do you play League of Legends?

Um... I think that the cooler can be bolted in any way, but for the fan bearings to last longer or stay quiet I thought I've read that they need to be installed vertically not horizontally (sleeve bearings). No I don't play League of Legends, but my son and I have played on MythicCrafters, Clash of Castles and old one called Oreminers... (Minecraft). The owner was called B3dog, don't know if that's you but I had to ask since that is not a common name. My son said B3dog was one of the best owners he ever played with.
