Description

I have been wanting to build a PC for the past 3/4 years now but never had the funds to do so. Now that I have been lucky enough to get a job (Im 17) i can now afford to do so. I have been creating builds on this site for about a 2 years hoping one day to make one. I had a budget of £500sh for the PC and keyboard. I decided to use my TV as the monitor so that I could save a bit of money and kept my desk uncluttered. I already had the mouse from when I had my laptop and a copy of windows 7 Ultimate that my friend gave me (he got it free on his College course but didnt need it) To keep all my files for college I took the HDD from my old laptop and put it in the PC. In total the PC came to £484.66 (excluding the mouse as i already had it) which I am very happy with.

Note: Im in the middle of doing some benchmarks on Planetside 2, Hitman Absolution, Tomb Raider and Battlefield 4. I will update these and the PC temps soon

Benchmarks: Planetside 2 - Maxed out 60FPS constant Metro Last Light - Very high 45-60FPS Call Of Duty W@W - Ultra 90FPS constant Call of Duty Ghost - Ultra 55-60FPS

UPDATE: I bought a new mouse, ROCCAT KONE PURE COLOUR (inferno orange), a Corsair H60 and 2 noctua NF-f12 fans

I will be doing some custom sleeving on the PSU cables and I will tidy up the cable managment and maybe add in some orange LED lighting

MOBO is coping perfectly, I havent had any problems at all with the MOBO or any parts yet (except from my hdd crashing when i done my first boot, but i managed to recover everything so all is good lolol)

the ds cube is fairly small and easily portable (ive took it to my friends houses a few times) but maybe a bitfenix colossus mini or a fractal design node 804 (not the best looking or the smallest but looks like a good alround case

yeah its a very very nice case. Its compact which obviously has its ups and downs. It was a wee bit tough to work in (due to it being my first build) but it doesn't ever get hot inside. Like i said its a bit cramped and my graphics card is only an inch clear of the front fan but I love the case.

How did the MOBO handled the OC?

Hey are both the fans mounted onto the rad pushing air out of the case?
