Description

Hello people of pcpartpicker, my third build and this time it was for my best friend. This PC is to get my friend away from console and his old PC. It is made for FSX,BF4,Minecraft and some other games. My friend wants to be a pilot when he grows up so thats why he needed an upgrade from a i3 550 and Radeon 5450 PC. The build took around 6 hours and was very hard to work with, (cable management, installing the H80i) and he even brought an RM series PSU because i tought it would be easier to work with in this small case but it turned out to be worse. Also the H80i is mounted wrong way so we cannot have the 770 in the top PCI lane but we will change that with the new mobo as the current one was "Dead on Arrival" or atleast we suspect so because it doesnt boot up :/ also cable management is **** as @&#% so i would recommend sleeved cables as they are more flexible.

Thanks man! Yeah sucks about the mobo we will send all parts back and have them test every part and see if it was the mobo, RAM, CPU, etc

I had the same problem with a Gigabyte Mobo from Newegg.

Looks like it is going to be a sick build when you get it working.

Sucks that you also had a problem with your mobo. Yes i hope it will be sick when we get it running, only ****** thing is the cables but it is a non windowed case so not to bad.

You might have not wear anti-static hand bracelets or earth yourself so it could be the case that you have damaged the MOBO by discharging static electricity.

Either that or just bad luck.

We were wearing anti static wristbands so that isnt the case..

However there is a 0.000000001% chance that it will fail to protect. So maybe just really bad luck.

It should fit. I only removed my drive cage for increased airflow.
