Description

The pics are kind bad.. Anyways, I'm 16 and this was my first PC I have ever built. I looked at many different parts for about 2 weeks (creating LOTS of different lists). Took about 2-3 hours to build and a week for all the parts to come in.

I'm going to get a 1TB HDD soon and probably another stick of ram in the future.

The thing that was the hardest for me was the power supply and cable management.. Cable management doesn't really matter to me anyways but yea..

Any suggestions or questions, feel free to ask.

Part Reviews

CPU

No problems at all. Fan was easy to install.

Motherboard

The lock thing for the cpu that you pull down was really hard. Don't know if it was something I was doing wrong.

Memory

It's ram.. easy to install. No problems.

Storage

VERY fast. So much better than my old PC that had a HDD.

Video Card

Haven't had any problems. 60+ fps on all games on high settings.

Case

Liked the case a lot. The windows scratches very easy and the cable management was kinda hard. Probably my fault / was too lazy.

Power Supply

No problems. Was kinda hard to understand what goes into what. Overall very nice.

Case Fan

Easy too install. No problems.

nice picks for parts. way to stay on a reasonable budget. I always look at how other people did cable management on the case I am using to get some tips and ideas.
It takes a bit of research to do nice cable management with a budget case especially for your first build. I look back on some of my early builds and cringe :)
You really did not make any mistakes on part choices. Well done! +1

For choosing these memory your motherboard just supports the frequency 2133 MHz

I'm confused by that too why does this guy have 2400 mhz, does it still work with that mobo?

You need the motherboard series Z to be able to increase the value of the memory sticks

I'd suggest a better CPU cooler as soon as you can afford it. Noctua for air or a decent AIO

the build was good but there is something which took me off, i think there is no need of vengeance ddr5 ram 2400 mhz because not even i5 6500 supports 2400mhz and not even your msi h110m motherboard supports 2400 mhz so it will just turn down ur ram performance and one more thing there is no need of so many fans infact just the case fan is only need !!!!!!!!!!!!
