Hello everyone!

I've been wanting to build my own computer for a while now. Without tons of money to drop I had to make this one affordable but I wanted to be sure I got the performance from it. I should say the performance I hoped it would bring anyway. I did as much research as I could and it ended up paying off!

I use it for entertainment (music and gaming). I currently play WoW on this machine. My FPS ranges between 50-130 on Ultra.

The first go around is the one you see with the white cables and white LEDs. Did a lot of thinking on how to cover up the mustard PSU cables - thats where the flex tubing comes from. Then of course later I found out they made sleeve extensions and well... one thing lead to another and now my setup is the red LED accented one. Can't wait to build another one in the future or continue upgrading this one!

Thanks for looking

Sweet build! OCD fellow here, and this satisfies me a lot.

Do you have a GPU in your build?

My GPU is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 4GB GDDR5 OC edition

Out of your whole build that is probably the weakest part. Not to rain on your parade tho. It should be fine :)

That is a very nice, clean build. The conduit you used for cable management is a very nice touch!

I am looking to do something similar, myself. How do you like the case and fan arrangment? Is it quiet? My rig will spend time in the living room, so I am trying to avoid putting a computer together, only to have it sound like a vacuum cleaner.

Thanks!

Thanks I appreciate that! I love the case. I have the 3 fans running the case came with and thats all I hear. As you see in the pic its sitting right next to me and doesn't bother me. So if it's in a living room I don't think anyone would notice it at all.

The only complaint I have with the case is the orientation of the MOBO. The gpu is actually facing down so you don't get to see it's fans or any nice looking part of it. You could however turn the case 90 degrees and put the window on the side. But then you'd see half of the cable management side.

Isn't that how most cases are?

What did you use to hide the CPU cooler cables?

That's also conduit! Sorry for the late response
