So this was my first ever build! Having been a Mac user up until now, this was quite the experience for me. I got tons of help from the community at LinusTechTips.com with putting together a parts list. My original aim was to have an entry level build, but in the end I ended up spending much more than I had intended. It was well worth it though!
I can't say much about why I chose what, as I had someone on the forum put it together for me. The case however is something that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. I'm planning to get some vinyl decals for the front in order to make the computer fit its name a bit more.
The temps have been awesome so far! I haven't pushed it too hard, but it looks like it is going to stay nice and cool. My only complaint is that I get buzzing in my headphones when doing anything GPU intensive. I'm pretty sure it's interference from the GPU, but there isn't much I can do about it right now.
When I was installing the motherboard, I had some issues with standoffs. This mobo is actually slightly smaller than the ATX size it claims to be, so I had to take it back out of the case after first putting it in to remove some more standoffs and put some back.
My next step is to upgrade our home Internet plan and get a powerline set up, as I don't have any way to run Ethernet upstairs to my room.
Baymax has been running awesome! All in all I'm very pleased.
