Description

So this is my first time ever building a computer, and i have decided to post my final product on here. I've been lurking on this site for a few years now and have finally decided to make my own computer. Any thing i could have done better please let me know, i really liked this and don't intend it to be my final build.

Also i tried my best with cable management but had no idea how to make it really clean.

Congrats on the build. My build (whenever it gets done) will be very similar to yours. As a first time builder, how was the installation for the CPU Cooler? I was thinking of getting the same.

I have an aftermarket CPU cooler on my first build also, not really needed but I wanted to make sure I got the lowest temps I could without water or liquid cooling. The installation isn't hard, just make sure you install the bracket on the back on the MB before installing it in your case because some cases do not have a back cut out for installing it afterwards. You can YouTube installation just to follow along to make sure you are doing everything right, but honestly if you just install the bracket on the back of the MB everything else is common since. Remember I said I did it on my first build also with no problems.

To be honest i struggled with it because i didnt know that the part that holds the cpu cooler to the e motherboard would need to be pushed down a little but other thab that its pretty straight forward other than the wiring.

Nice build, always good to see the title first build. I love checking these out to see how people have overcome and decided to build vs buy. Love how you pretty much got everything you need and staying under 1k. Should be gaming pretty decent too.
