Got my son to build this since I was able to pick up a graphics card on sale black friday for $299 and the card wouldnt fit into his old computer that sucked and so began a venture to pick him some components for a new pc to transfer his old pc hardware into well about that time they announced the ryzen would be coming out shortly and that changed everything so ended up starting from scratch except the graphics card and received the last parts in the build around april 12th or so and he put everything together he did a really good job too and low and behold the motherboard was doa code 8. I panicked and tried reseating everything I could to not blame the board and in the process dropped the processor and bent the pins. So we shipped the board back to newegg and they confirmed that the board was dead and promptly sent out a new one all within about 7 days. Now I done dropped the processor and bent the pins so pissed about that so I took to ebay and picked up another one for $300 both me and my son dropped everthing in figuratively this time not literally and what do you know thing booted right up.

Couple of key points learned that backplates for cpu cooler should never be forcibly removed but you should apply alot of heat directly to the plate and use a plastic putty knife or specialized tool of some sort to remove hot backplate and keep all wires and cords neat other than that no problems

So for fan wise got some nzxt orange fans and a coolermaster blue 200 fan for the front and had front pull air into the pc and the three top fans pull cool air into the pc and a 140 orange low cfm push air out of the back the case included a fan hub which is a dream and the board has 3 pwms on top also sweet.

This was a very costly fun experience for both me and my son but it was worth it and super fun so now my son can play roblox in 4k yay hahaha.

A few full stops and commas would probably make that easier to read.

Best dad ever, It would've been awesome if I could've played Roblox in 4K when I was younger but I player at 900p and didn't care.

Get your son a pair of shades and the build will be complete!

Edit: Get him some more games, too.

Oh god.. I really hope this isn't just for ROBLOX.. Either way, sick freaking build man! Wish I had something like this when I was a kid, let alone something like this now.

Awesome thanks for all the comments everyone sorry for all the runons didn't know the character limit and was kinda pressed but Leon will be playing more than roblox well anything he wants with live game streaming and he has something that should last at least five years or more. He is a pc enthusiast and plans to learn to start creating games soon and for anyone curious about the desk and wall we did a 3 tone curvature modeled after the milano ship from the guardians of the galaxy and got the sweet decal from signs cuz fatheads were being bi#c#es and the desk is 21in workstation brackets with prefab laminate counter about $160 total and 10 feet of desk. Thank You! Any questions just ask. ; )

I somehow like it but why not go with a nzxt kraken x62? 1+ tho!

Maybe he didn't want RGB in his AIO, or perhaps he wanted something different/more performance oriented.

Lyrix 1 point 20 months ago

yes that is possible
