Description

My first gaming pc, thought I would try building it myself. Already had a nice dell monitor lying around at home, so I managed to save some money for the monitor. All the other parts were bought from a local store, and I converted the prices into USD.

For Singaporeans interested, total price was around 2300sgd. Went to Sim Lim Square, Best Bargain Computers shop at the 5th level. Highly recommend that store, top notch and friendly service.

Wasn't planning to overclock, so I got the i5-6500 cpu and gigabyte h170 mobo. As for the video card, I went with the most money for value model and brand, which at that time i believe it was the zotac gtx 1070 AMP! edition.

I put in a lot of thought in order to make the build look pretty, which is why i got the razer edition of NZXT S340. Haven't found a cpu fan which looks nice, and since the stock fan is doing its job so far, will probably stick with it until I find a nice and good enough flat cpu fan. I don't really fancy the big bulky ones. Thinking of getting the scythe big shuriken 2, but I'm also open to suggestions!

Also added an LED strip next to the two NZXT front fans as the brightness of the LED case fans (ID cooling PL12025) I bought were a bit dim. Will update if more parts are bought!

The PSU I'm using wasn't on the list, so I just chose the closest one I that was on it. The real model is Super Flower Leadex 650W Silver fully Modular.

PS - Trying to find green PSU cables that are compatible with my PSU, drop me a message if anyone has any idea where I can order them from. Really looking forward to getting nicer cables.

The shops which i frequent is Video-Pro on the fifth floor for PC parts.

Cybermind or Choppermind is the least place to go unless they are having sales or there are the only shop selling that one PC part, Fuwell is ok but prices are steep.

Best Bargains is where i shop for SD memory cards and thumbdrive for my DSLR.

PC Themes is the good place to go if you want a full system build by them.

Tradepac is the cheapest of the lot for GPUs if you know what you are buying. And they are right behind Video Pro shop in the back alley.

The cheating case with the handphones on the first floor have hurt business

so on the h340 you can take off the backpanel, so you should route the 24pin motherboard connecter through there and come through where that bar is and plug it in. Then you should also plug in the graphics car power connector through the little hole where the ssd tray is so it just goes straight up to the card. Mainly though you should hide all the cables in the backpanel behind the motherboard.

Hey man, I'm not sure what you mean by PSU lighting. Haha sorry, still new to the terms. The PSU itself doesnt have any lights, and I connected LED strips to the peripherals port on the PSU using the cables given together with it.
