I didn't expect to be doing this till at least a year from now but I ended up building my first PC. I was a little nervous at first but after all the research I've done and build videos I watched, By the time I actually got to building it, I felt like I knew what I was doing for the most part and the build process went smoothly. Quite honestly actually picking out the parts i wanted took a LOT more effort than actually building it. My PC completely changed forms several times before I ended up actually ordering all the parts. I toe dipped into PC gaming on my laptop so I've been hoping to get a real gaming rig for a while now. I wanted to put together something that could max out nearly anything I could throw at it at 1440p. I havent actually had the opportunity to really test this thing with some really intensive games, but I have benchmarked it using Firestrike and got a score of 16008. My CPU is overclocked to 4.6GHz(1.3v) but I have yet to do any overclocking with my GPU as of right now. My CPU stays pretty frosty thanks to the H110i GTX I bought. I replaced the stock fans on the cooler with two Venturi HP14s which work like a charm. With all the CPU testing I've done during the overclock, I've never seen it ever hit 60 degrees. I have the radiator mounted on the front to make use of the silent design of the Define R5 I bought, though in hindsight I feel like a Define S would have probably been a better choice for my cooling setup. Aside from the radiator I have a 120mm intake fan on the bottom, as I'd rather not have the radiator being the only intake on the case, as well as a rear exhaust that came with the case. I was hoping to have a 140mm fan on the bottom but it wouldn't fit with my PSU since the bottom 140mm fan mounts use standard holes instead of mounting strips. With all that being said, I ended up mounting my storage drive in the lower optical drive bay using a bracket I bought off of newegg which allowed to fit both my SSD and my mechanical drive in a single 5.25" bay. I was planning putting the SSD I bought on the mounts that came with the case, but putting the SSD in the bracket along with the mechanical allowed me to hook up everything with the single SATA power cable. When I end up expanding my storage though, I plan on moving it back and using two 3 plug SATA cables instead of a single 4 plug cable. My PSU came with quite a bit of cables which will come in handy at some point. All of which are black sleeved which is really nice. Speaking of which, I'm well aware the PSU I bought is overkill for what I currently have, but I didn't want to rule out the possibility of getting a second GPU at some point. Overall this actually all went really well. I felt like I've learned a lot more about computers and it was actually quite fun.
