Description

This was my first build. But to be completely honest, my boyfriend did most (pretty much all) of the building. I purchased the parts (with a few of his suggestions) and supervised during the building. I helped where I could ¯_(ツ)_/¯. I planned a Moira (Overwatch) theme before hand, it influenced some of the parts I decided on. I also bought a Moira sticker I was planning on putting on the side of the case. I decided not to so that I can make it Legend Of Zelda themed instead later on B)

I previously had an Asus gaming laptop that I had purchased open box from Best Buy. I got a whole year of heavy binge gaming into it and it started to struggle. I wanted to build a PC but felt like it was an impossible feat. That **** is expensive and I don't know what i'm doing. Then my boyfriend showed me pcpartpicker and I was like "ooooOOhh ok". So it started and was supposed to be spread out over the course of a few months, slowly purchasing parts but instead I sold my entire childhood in 90's video games to a shop and bought every part in about three weeks time.

It will mainly be used for gaming. So far it has been able to handle every game and is a cute as heck little cube. So proud of her.

Hi. I really like how the black purple contrast looks. I might use the colour contrast in a future build.

Second. I love the case. It looks cute on your desk.

Have you played any games on it? Does the R5 1600 bottleneck GTX 1080?

Did you have problems with the bios due to a less current motherboard?

If you looked at the cpu being used, you will notice it is first gen ryzen 5, the b350 chipset was MADE for first gen ryzen processors and therefore it definitely contains the right bios.

It’s exactly that! Lol it’s a battery powered glowy potion that glows rgb. I got it from a geek fuel subscription box.

Was this easy to work in? Asking because considering this for my first build

Absolutely. Every side comes off and they’re all the same size so you can mix and match for different orientations. Even the power button can be moved around which was nice.

Hello,

I love your build. How did you get the LED to light up on the larger fan and how did you connect the fans to get all 3 to light up at the same time. I have the exact parts and I'm trying to put mine together.

Hey thanks! It actually came in a geekfuel subscription box. I’m not sure if it’s sold separately.
