This is my first ever PC build. I have always been told that building a PC is easy, its just like snapping legos together. And that's true, as long as you bear in mind that those legos might be incompatible with one another, fragile, and cost hundreds of dollars each. So my apprehension on this project centered around picking the right parts, and this web site helped immensely with that, so I wanted to post my build to see if it helps anyone make a decision on their build.
The Fractal R5 case is awesome, roomy to work in. I loved the SSD holder on the back of the mother board and the included fans are whisper quiet.
Please note, that yes, in my early pictures, my power supply is upside down. That has been corrected since the.
I thought about moving the 2 red fans to both be in front, but by the time I had thought of that, it would have involved pulling too much stuff out and didn't seem worth it to me (as the door will be shut with the dust cover on 99.9% of the time).
Let me know what you guys think!
