Description

This is second PC I've built. After working with the Air 540, i chose to opt for something more compact so i could easily move back and forth from home and school. Hence i chose the Air 240.

The building process was very easy and cable management was a breeze with this case. The trickiest part, but wasn't necessarily difficult was putting the front 240mm radiator. It was just the right size to fit in, so no hassle there.

Most of the parts i chose was for color coordination.

The CPU was an obvious choice, along with the motherboard. Not a lot of better choices to pick aside from these two. The RAM was simply picked because it has LED's on it. Thanks Avexir for making one of the only RAM sticks that light up.

The Deepcool Captain 240 was chosen because i simply enjoyed the look of the CPU block.

I chose the GTX 980 instead of the Ti version because i simply don't need the extra horsepower. Also, the PNY cooler looks astonishingly pretty.

Everything else was used from my old PC.

Overall, i really enjoyed making this PC and everything went pretty well.

Nice build. Moar picktuers please! I really like the 240 case, it's well thought out and looks super clean.

Question why does everyone's forst build super rock the casbar? Here I was being all noobish and fixing something up, dabbling here and there modestly...

Thanks! I would love to take more pictures, but i don't have the amazing camera i used to take the ones above.

Haha, well, the simple trick is to just spend a little extra time while building to route the cables. Its not magic, it's just a little more effort to make the PC stand out more. Also, when i was choosing the parts, i was extremely vigilant with color matching. I made sure all the parts were only black, silver, or red.

Cable routing attention for sure, I'm a stickler for it.. and I actually enjoy organising them. I'm not sure why, it's just satisfying :)

Great build, found it while looking at pictures of the Deepcool CPU cooler. Matches perfectly, 5/7 stars.

Does the radiator have enough room for a 4th fan or does the GPU block it?
