I wasn't going to post originally but i figured later, why not. This is Becky and is the first P.C i've ever owned/built. I'm still working on the wire management and waiting to buy a GTX 1080 from Gigabyte or MSI.
Congrats on the first build !
Tons of potential.... Even with something less than a 1080.
Just curious as to what made you decide on MSI or Gigabyte for your GPU?
Thanks. I picked those mostly for cooling, color scheme and overall performance. The galax hof is on my mind too but it might be too expensive.
Why not evga?
You should use seals/cable things!
Thanks, going to work on it.
Does the motherboard have on board WIFI/Bluetooth?
No. Going to buy wireless adapter this week.
Really nice build! The way you have your cpu cooler orientated is giving me anxiety... Why did you decide to orient it like that and not logo vertically?
That gave me some issues. Wasn't as easy to install as i thought. Does it make a difference?
Haha, I dont think It does. That would be a manual question. What were you having issues with? (I am only asking because I am considering that cooler for my new rig).
No issues i think with performance. My cpu stays between 32 and 40 degrees celsius. I mainly got this specific one for the lighting but when i figured out how to configure it, the red ended up being awful at crunch time so that was a fail. It looks faded and not dark.
Not an enthusiast so i can't say much. What 1080 model interests you?
Love how you fit the Cooler into that case :)
