To be continued....
I've had my own PC's in the past but with friends helping me build them. This time I have done it myself! It took me quite some time, roughly 2 evenings slowly putting things together and reading manuals, watching YouTube vids, etc. This Build did not have a DVD/CD/Blue-ray Drive as I wanted to install from USB however I struggled greatly with this as the USB ports only worked for keyboard/mouse.
So after trying various things that didn't work, my end solution was to put the boot drive into my old PC and install from DVD. This is not the best way of doing windows installations but it worked and I had to copy my drivers onto the HDD before putting it into the new build.
Another thing, was that my RAM, was not showing it's true speed (2100 MHz) and after some research I found that I had to enable XMP in the bios and it is now running at 3000 MHz. I was quite scared about installing a liquid cooler too but managed to do it (with some difficulty as I'm noob).
My previous setup had Windows 7 so just used that DVD and then upgraded to windows 10 which took ages to install. Downloading Win 10 was fast, preparing up to 99% was fast but only after going to bed and waking up, had it finished - the screen would not display anything but i could see HDD activity so I reset and then I could complete the Win10 Installation.
I will probably purchase some LED lighting and custom braiding in the future but I'm happy for now as the 400c hides cables nicely behind the motherboard.
