I have been wanting to build a pc for the last few years. This was my first ever pc build. I fell in love with the case as soon as I saw it and I knew that this was the case to build it in. I built this pc to be my do it all. Overall for my first time I feel like everything went pretty smoothly. I have everything still at stock clocks until I learn more about overclocking.
The only issues that I first ran into was with the kraken and my original ram that I purchased the Corsair Dominator Platinum. The dominator was too tall so I had to change it to Corsair white Vengeance LPX low profile ram. Other than that hiccup everything else went well.
For the components I decided to go with a 6700k which I will eventually overclock. The motherboard I chose the Asus Z170 deluxe because I wanted to have a white themed build. For the gpu I went with the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW and combined with the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q games looks awesome. For the keyboard I went with a Corsair K70 Lux with cherry mx brown switches. They feel very nice and not too loud much better than the non mechanical keyboards I have always used. I also have the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum mouse.
For my first time build I really enjoyed building this pc and excited to get to learn more about overclocking and getting the most potential out of this. Im glad I decided to build this pc as opposed to just buying one and for sure will be building my own pcs in the future.
