Hey guys, I finally finished my first full desktop build ever! Spent a few months tracking prices and doing my research on the hardware. I'm not new to computers as I have repaired laptop and other computers a few times. This is my first time however actually building a desktop from scratch. I decided to go with the Intel processor simply because you just cannot beat the performance. I also got a pretty good deal on it and got some blue fans (free). Bought all the parts over the course of the past month and just finished assembling it a few days ago. So far it's played everything at high or ultra. Haven't gotten around to some of the more graphics intensive games yet so I'll update this if that changes. Although it is definitely nice to be able to play Minecraft without any lag (I'm getting about 1800fps...) I had about 30fps max my laptop... I was worried about the case it kinda got mixed reviews but once I started building, it was a total breeze. A fairly generous amount of grommets on the back and plenty of room to manage your wires. The ventilation is pretty good except the front intake fans are blocked a bit by the hard drive mounts. Overall its a descent case. I did the best I could with cable management (Still not done, I ran out of cable ties.) but over all I'm extremely happy with how this turned out, It's soooo much better than my old laptop. Totally worth the money.
Thanks for looking guys!
