Description

I love my first PC build I use it for mainly gaming and have really enjoyed the transition over from console gaming. The case is actually a black and orange phantom 410 and I got some cheap orange led back lighting for my desk to go with it. I can max out every game I throw at it and I've never seen a component temp go over 60 degrees which is a great thing to see. I recommend each part on my list buy will for sure be buying a SSD soon to further speed up my build. Question are welcomed.

This is a very nice build, but your cable management could use a little work. Enjoy your PC!

There are support brackets you can buy that'll help hold up your graphics card, but twist ties or some string can do the trick in a pinch. Kind of tricky to find them though.

Make sure the card is seated properly in the PCIe slot. Also make sure that the I/O part of the card is seated firmly at the back of the case. There really shouldn't be any reason for it to sag unless those cables really are pulling it down.

I'm no expert but i'd say it's down to poor build quality of graphics card, but I could easily be wrong :D

the card itself isn't bent it just sags in the case due to all the weight i'm gonna try twist ties

This is extremely common and nothing to worry about. Similarly, my junk hangs sags but it's not gonna fall off.

nice build!

I personally had some bad experiences with Gigabyte hardware but so Id have used a Asus, ASrock, or MSI MB and probably a XFX for the videocard...

But if it works for you then that's great of course. Enjoy!

Nice build ya got there. But I gotta say, that's quite a redneck way to adjust your monitors height, ha

What did you do in your BIOS? Like what did you change?

  • 82 months ago

I haven't changed anything yet I plan on having one bios stay on default settings and change one to have overclocked gpu and cpu settings.

Nice build. I like the orange theme. What type of lighting do you use behind your desk?

Is it too much back lighting when gaming? I prefer a dark room and only my monitor light.

How is the motherboard and how long have you had to computer?

ive had the computer 3 months but can't really tell you how overclocking on it is since I haven't done it. It is very durable and has dual bios chips and a great interface to change things in the bios.
