Description

This is the computer I built for my wife. Her input was extremely helpful during the building process.

Me: Intel or AMD? Her: I don't care.

Me: Would you like RGB? Her: I don't care.

Me: Big case or small? Her: I don't care.

You see where this is going. Eventually I just built her something that plays wow at 7 settings at 1080p while remaining relatively silent.

"I don't care," Hey I used to have a girlfriend that loved to eat there!

OMG me too!

Oh lord, me too. The worst is when I pick a place and she says "No I don't want that" and I jump out a window.

I can't stop laughing at the dual time zones!

M1AF submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Yeah, Reddit was pretty merciless about that too. I fixed it since then.

Still an awesome build though. Props to you and the wife for gaming together, I been trying to get mine into anything for years!

Meanwhile, I jabber on endlessly about parts and specs and my husband just smiles and says "whatever you want, love"...I've roped his friends into my personal sounding board.

It's gotten to the point where I'll start talking about computers and she'll ask "is this computer related?" She then quickly proceeds to pretend to listen while I go on and on about x, y and z.

So... what was her reaction? She liked it or... you know...

MetalDogJosh 3 points 2 months ago

Nice build! +1!!
Why 2 thermal pastes though? Obviously 1 for the CPU. But is the second one for the M.2 drive or for the GPU?

M1AF submitter 2 Builds 4 points 2 months ago

I delidded her 8400 for the luls.

Jerome54 2 points 2 months ago

Hahahahahaha!!!! XD XD

Where did that desk/ table top come from? I love it.

M1AF submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

It's a 98" butcher block counter top from home depot. I stained it chocolate, then stained it sun beaten to get the faded look.

JTRABBIT9 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

awesome thank you. I am doing a similar look for my basement..

M1AF submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

I made the desk myself. Cost around $500 CAD.
