Description

Hey! So this was my first build ever. I have always thought about building my own but always been scared to actually pull the trigger... until now. And I am completely happy with what I have made. I tried to pick parts that were really good but at the same time not too expensive. I am mainly going to be using this computer for video editing, school work, and the occasional gaming.

Building this computer was not as easy as I thought it would be. If there were anything worth mentioning about the whole build is that the case is cheap. Not money cheap (which it was) but Chinese cheap. The bolts broke on me even though I tried to take care with not stripping them or screwing them in at odd angles. It also wouldn't line up exactly with my mobo... so right now I think I have about 4 screws holding my board and they are not really well placed but its hold sturdy enough and I'm fine with that.

Your bottom fan is an exhaust as it is now. It should be an intake. You should just flip it around.

Yeah I was thinking about flipping it around because I have the fans on the h100i pushing air out too. I will probably do that soon.

I'll disagree with you on the case. I have it and I love it. It's put together much better and is a better quality than most if not all cases in it's price range. Sound dampening... roomy... excellent cable management... you must have just gotten a bad batch of screws or something... also my mobo lined up perfectly. Maybe should have done a bit more research? (idk)

All in all nice build, +1

The screws and the alignment were the only thing I disliked but I still love the clean look of the case. -Thanks

If ya removed the top drive cage it would make it a lot better looking in my opinion and it would improve airflow slightly.

I turned the cage sideways so there really isn't anything in the way... and it covers lots of wires lol.

This is pretty nice. Those bottom connectors are bothering me, but the only other choice seems to be to use the bottom grommet and that has all your PSU cables sticking out of it.
