Won the money @ Pechanga so decided to pull the trigger on the build before I wasted it in other ways.
Shouldn't the hard drives be installed the other way around to hide the cables? I think the cables can be managed better.
the way the screws were on the ssd it was the only way it could reasonably be mounted. Believe me i was looking at it for a long time and the cable management definitely could have been better would have helped to have a fully modular PSU
If you're thinking about overclocking (your motherboard and your cpu both are begging for it), I would recommend an aftermarket cpu cooler....
I died a little bit inside when I saw the unlocked cpu with the default cooler.
I am 100% going to overclock it everntually. As this was my first build in over a decade I honestly just wanted to get everything in and working. I say in a month or so once I want another small project I will purchase install the new cooler and overclock.
Ah, the most important of all components: Mountain Dew!
I laughed when I saw that in the picture. No build is complete without caffeine.
Bingo I could not have built it without the dew
you dont need a CPU cooler?
The CPU comes with one.
