As you read in the title this was my first build and boy was I nervous! I didn't want to mess anything up because 2 months ago I knew nothing about building a computer. After 2 months of picking and swapping parts, watching YouTube videos, and reading forums I decided that I need to make up my mind and finalize the parts.
I went with these parts because it was a major upgrade from my old PC. I wanted to venture off to different games other than CS:GO (only game that I enjoyed that ran at a good frame rate). I wanted to try games that I've played on console before (as in COD, GTA:V, Assassin's Creed) basically games that would just kill my previous PC.
I mainly built this PC for gaming, however I'm also in school. I know the GPU and CPU are overkill for most games but I also would love to start streaming and uploading to YouTube again. My old PC definitely held me back from that.
When I first started building my first issue was installing the Liquid Cooler. I watched videos on how to install them but me being so excited my mind was just blank lol. After about 15 minutes of installing the cooler I moved on to the GPU.. this thing was massive for my case but fit like a glove when I got it installed. Since this was my first build I really didn't know what order to install the parts so I believe that's why I struggled installing some of the parts. Next build I know what needs to go in order.
I don't have really anything else to say, so thanks for looking at the build and thank you PCpartpicker for helping me out.
This thing is a BEAST. I LOVE IT. However i'm new to overclocking and have yet to OC this bad boy. But when I do will update.
Was a little difficult to install for me (first build) but after about 15-20 minutes of messing with it I figured it out. Keeps my CPU nice and cool!
Got this because it goes great with my MSI Red build. Very easy to install and the BIOS is very simple to operate.
Store all of my games on here. No problems yet.
Store videos, pictures, and other miscellaneous stuff on here. No problems yet.
THIS THINGS A F***KING BEAST!! Runs any game I play at great FPS on ultra settings. Also, love the red added.
A little smaller that what I imagined but its a case. Not the one I wanted because the other was out of stock. Not much room for cables. However, it comes with an extra fan.
No problems at all.
It's an optical drive. Not really anything to say about it
