This machine was built in order to play video games and be able to move around easy since I will be going to college next year. Everything shipped perfectly(I ordered mostly from Amazon and Newegg due to rewards points back and quick shipping). The assembly was fairly easy, but if it is your first build make sure you read the entire instructions first( I know I'm impatient but it would have saved me a lot of time and headaches). The computer case came with plenty of extras to keep wire management easy and simple keeping everything clean. The case came with 4 Fans already installed that are already pretty quiet. So if you aren't that worried about it being completely silent don't buy the extra fans. Read the specs on the case and make sure there is enough room for the fans. I am in absolute love with the the build and couldn't be happy.
If you are going to buy both the Kraken and the Hue+ make sure you buy a USB 2.0 Module Hub (They go for around $25). You will not have enough adapters to plug into the motherboard if not purchased (https://www.nzxt.com/products/internal-usb-hub) <--- There's a link. The Kraken and the Hue+ work together in a program called CAMWEBAPP, that you can change and monitor your system and change the colors.
I will also recommend that if you download a lot of games that you in a larger storage drive. I will be upgrading to the Samsung 850 Evo 1TB 2.5"SSD. Only because I know that I have a lot of games on steam and download a lot of other files for school. You also do not need a SSD if you are going to be storing other files such as documents, photos, etc... Hybrid drives or just a normal Hard Drive would work just fine and are much cheaper. Do your research for what you need, if you have any questions leave them below.
I plan on wrapping my case to change it up since they are cheap and easy to do and can be changed at any time, if you think that the all black is boring look at wraps for the cases.
Just some tips for Beginners (along with mistakes I made, again I was new): 1) Read the entire instructions (I promise it's worth it) 2) Install all the drivers for motherboard from the disc included(Or the internet port wont connect to the internet). 3) Keep everything nice and neat, you will lose your mind if you are O.C.D. 4) Install the Power cables before putting the power supply in the case. 5) Keep your cable management neat just in case you need to go back in to fix something.
Please be sure that if you have any questions leave them below I am more than willing to help you out and answer any questions you have about the parts.
