Came out surprisingly well considering its the first build I've ever done. The extra ram is for when I'm running more that one Minecraft client and a server. 5ooGB of storage is fine for me for some reason. Actually only using about 2/5 of my storage with around 45 games. Cable management got a bit rambunctious in the back but it looks pretty good for a first build.

4/12/2019 Edit: The main thing I changed was the cable management and the SSD placement. I'm also thinking about swapping the stock fans with some RGB Nzxt fans, adding a 1tb m.2 SSD, and buying some Cablemod pro cables with the 20% coupon that came with my mobo. Also added some more pictures.

8/24/2019 Edit: Overclocked my CPU to 5Ghz stable.

Part Reviews


Suits all my needs for gaming and video editing.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my 8700K in the high 30's on idle (Celsius).


Looks great through the H500i, love the black PCB. The Bios could be better though.


Great RAM, mobo recognized the recommended XMP profile.


Standard SATA 6gb SSD works good for what I need.

Video Card

Great card. Will handle VR games like a pro.


Great case with a decent amount of RGB strips and a good fan hub.

Power Supply

More than enough power than needed, Ready for upgrading when needed in the future.

Great looking build! The way I look at it, if the back panel closes, the cable management is just fine! ;)
