Description

Build worked out well. Easy setup.

Didn't plan ahead nor care about cable management. Customer was rushing me to complete the build which is why I ordered everything from Amazon Prime. Haha

Let me know what you think you would have done differently/your thoughts.

CPU and GPU $0? Also no OS? Where is the SSD mounted? How is that case to work with overall?

CPU and GPU were pulled from his old build until 1070 comes out for an upgrade which is why CPU and GPU were "$0" because I marked them as purchased already.

SSD was mounted in the 2.5 inch slot.

OS was installed with Windows 7 Key from the old machine.

Why would anyone spend $400 when he got no real upgrade? Same CPU, same GPU, maybe a bit more RAM?

I wish I'd have such customers. :)

Faster speed ram same amount. He got a ssd as primary drive instead of 1tb hdd so that was a upgrade. He spent $650 (I have to have my profit somewhere). Customer plans on getting a 1070. Original plan was getting an SLI board to use with 2 970s. Then customer decided to do this build for some unknown reasoning haha. Was a much better liquid cooler on this build that the previous "iBuyPower" machine. Bonus was he let me keep the old machine, so all I need is a cpu and it's good to go since I don't game. :)

Well done. Lucky you. :) I don't want to ruin your business, but maybe you can share where to get these customers. XD

I work at home, and subcontract work from 3 computer repair companies to service their clients. So i basically do home and mobile calls. Have killed it this last year. In all honesty, it took the last 3 years to get where I am at to have enough work to be content.

B series board with a n i7k? I think some of these have OC settings, maybe?

Otherwise jealous of that CPU. And listed price.

Yes Motherboard does support OC. I have no need to overclock customer's desktop as it is not necessary!

CPU and GPU were pulled from his old build until 1070 comes out for an upgrade!

Do you just have a craigslist posting, or do you have an actual business, if so how hard is it to set up?

Nah, I was asking how hard it is to setup a legit business.

Customer literally stood over me as I was building it as he needed it to finish work that night. He planned on doing this build 3 weeks ago and I took a deposit then he changed his mind. So it came down to me ordering on prime and rushing on his build. I normally do work on CM and plan everything out, but when client rushes you this is what you get.

Well I can understand that.

But as a PC-nerd I can't stand that pic :D
