Description

Hi, This was my first build which I made for my two boys. I am a long time mac user from the 1980's, I had my first 386 computer in the early 90's and was using the internet before there was the WWW. I just logged into bulletin board services.

It took a few hours to setup Darth Maul. After a few weeks of watching non-stop build videos on youtube, it made the whole process go quickly. The Thermaltake case is very large so there was enough room to work in. Only hard part was putting in those tiny front panel pins. what a pain! Also, I was a bit clueless on how to work with the BIOS and installing windows. after about 15 minutes we figured it out.

The RX 570 graphics card I bought used on Ebay, and it's working great thus far.

I can see how building could become a great addictive, expensive hobby. I

Motherboard

pretty good I wish the SATA headers were not facing upwards. WIFI onboard!!

Case

Very large and roomy. MATX looks small inside, plenty of room for water cooling

why put the funko pop box in there?? thats gonna restrict a lot of air flow. Other than that, everything looks good.

Agreed, the box is temporary until I can get a better platform. There is still a lot of airflow despite the box.

Id like to suggest using an L bracket. one face can be mounted on the walls inside the case leaving the other face as a mini platform for the funko pop to stand on. Double sided tape can be used here.

This Darth Maul scares me more than the one from the movies. Must have something to do with the big olive eyes.

Yeah I answered this earlier, I need to find a stand. There is a huge hole in the PSU shroud to accommodate liquid cooling reservoir.

For the price you put so much passion in this build this is the best budget build ever

Thank you for the kind words. There were other expenses not listed for example the cable extensions, keyboard and mouse.
