2nd ever PC build.
I built it for the fun of putting together my own PC and researching all of the parts that I wanted to fit together. I wanted to build something that would allow me to play games and also be functional for several years. It works great for general computer use and limited gaming when I have the time.
I decided to go with the black and blue color scheme after reading reviews of the NZXT S340. Although I don't have a ton of experience with cases, I can tell why this on gets so many good reviews. Visually it looks great and was easy to build.
I decided to use blue LEDs and went with two different types to light up the inside and the bottom separately. I really like the under glow used in the NZXT H440 Razer edition, so I tried to replicate that on my build. I used a cheap LED kit from oversees that is always on and added the NZXT sleeved LED kit for the internal LEDs that I can turn on and off.
I wanted to try the liquid CPU cooler because it looks so much better than the air coolers on cases with windows. I wish I would have bought one where the name lights up, but maybe in my next build. Same goes for the graphics card.
My only negative comment about the components is the power supply. The cables on this one are really stiff and difficult to manage. I didn't feel like paying $70 for individually sleeved cables that didn't impact performance at all. Other than that the other parts worked well together.
I currently use an older Monitor I have had for years but will upgrade soon.
