First time ever building a computer, switching from xbox. So far so good! i love it
Do you have 2 140mm fans in front of your aio?
Yes the aio is set up in a push pull config.
I will add that the front fans are slightly offset(a little lower) from the radiator just for aesthetic purposes since they can be seen from the front of the case. They are only about .75 - 1 inch lower than the radiator so about 80% of the fans are still pushing air through the radiator from the front side
Great. Thank you
Where did you install the 3.5” HDD? I noticed you had to remove the HDD tray in order to install the aio where you have it.
I saw in a YouTube guide that the HDD was installed directly onto the bottom of the inside of the case(behind the PSU).
Also did you install the HDD directly onto the surface of the case, or did you have to a attach it to a bracket? And lastly were the brackets included or purchased separately?
2 Hdd brackets were included, I installed the hdd directly to the case with no bracket. If you watch Bitwits build in this case on YouTube I installed mine in the same location I just removed the rubber grommets so the hdd wouldnt be at an angle like in the video. I believe one ssd bracket is included as well. But I didnt use it because I used a m.2 ssd
Good to know.
For a first PC build i think you over spent if one of the parts was damaged that'd be a lot of money down the drain
There's this lovely invention called a warranty.
Yes but human error isn't covered under warranty
What's wrong with spending a little on your first. Theres no right of passage that says your first build has to be of peasant quality. Grow up, the man spent his money exactly the way he wanted and got a good PC. You have no right to be salty. This man and myself damaged a $25k aircraft part together one day. Havent messed up anything since. Good times right DB1ntegra 😂
Whos salty???? i was just saying i think its dumb to spend so much on a first time and i never said you can't spend a good bit on a starter.
"For a first PC build i think you over spent"
"its dumb to spend so much on a first time"
"i never said you can't spend a good bit on a starter"
You pretty much contradicted your first 2 statements. Decide what side of the field your playing for there bud. Lol
you really don't know common sense...
Nothing was damaged? I've been researching tutorial after tutorial for the past 3-4 months on building and whatnot. If you take your time and dont rush when dealing with expensive components then it's no problem(I fix planes for a living, I'm used to handling parts that cost tens of thousands of dollars everyday). It took me like 3 hours to build it and it could have been faster but I took my time. It honestly didnt feel like my first time building a PC due to the hours and hours of YouTube tutorials I watched before even buying any parts lol. Thanks for the feedback tho!
