Description

What inspired me to build my own PC was I had purchased a pre built one from HP that I was going to use for gaming and some light video editing. I spent over $2600 just to get it home and realize I wanted to upgrade everything in it including the horrible monitor that came with the computer. So I quickly returned the computer and came here to PC Part Picker. To be honest I had no idea what I was doing so I used PC Part Picker, Read forums and watched plenty of youtube and I completed my first build. Let you know what you think. Thanks

You spent $2,600 on a prebuilt system bundle and then returned it and spent another $2,000 on this sweet build?!?! You have no idea how you compare to some peoples first builds lol. This set up is gonna bring you a bazillion hours of good old fashioned fun.

LOL well I got home and started reading more into the pre built I bough and realized it was mostly junk. I then realized I could do better building my own with the help of you guys and a little extra cash.

Goodness, you spent more than I did for this sort of purpose. No matter though, as long you are happy and content than it's great! You were smart to quickly send back your pre-built.
Having your very own custom computer leaves yourself future options to upgrade and the best part is you know what is in there versus to guess and search on the internet on a pre-built. Not that I have issues with pre-builts either since not everyone wants to build a computer, except us on PCPP. More important is the feeling and knowing the real accomplishment of building your very own computer.
Welcome to the PC Master Race. You are one of us now. Lastly, great build and it is lovely.+1

I really just saw what everyone else was building and took what I liked and what I didn't like and made it my own. I realize you can learn pretty much anything on YouTube and Google lol

To be honest I had no idea what I was doing so I used PC Part Picker<

That, my friend, is the magic of building a PC. You have no idea if you're plugging in things correctly, or maybe this thing called a PCIe lane in which you put only compatible LGA DDR4 M.2 SSD's. When I first thought about the inside of a PC I thought it was impossible, but that's what made my build experience super fun! +1

3 SP120's, please explain where you've put the static fans? Are these attached to the liquid cooler and Back case fan?

What fans are at the front of the case?

Great build.

Thanks

Amazing build. Absolutely beautiful. Just wondering, how was the case to build in? I was looking at it for my black and white build. How was the cable management?

+1 for the build though. I'm drooling over that 1080... :)

Thank you! The case is amazing, I was able to easily work inside and hide wires. I dont think I could have asked for a better case to work inside that looks good.

This is a sign, I have been debating with myself about doing my first build. My parts list looks similar to yours, and looking at how nice your rig turned out I am going to try it. Thank you for those motivational pictures.

MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! OMG! For your first build it is AWESOME! It puts most of senior builds to the ground in some places (I'm talking about brazilian builds). Congratulations dude!

Have fun!

The only thing I'll criticise is that it looks like there is no real color theme but that's just me other than that great build especially for it to be your first. I'll be doing my first shortly though I'll only be dropping half of what you did its not published yet. Feel free to make suggestions.

How would you compare liquid to the best of what, say, Noctua puts out for CPU Coolers?
