This is my first build ever. Had a lot of fun building it, trouble shooting etc. Well, i really didn't have any problems, i just didn't press my displayport connection in enough on the monitor side so nothing showed up. Also I inputted the ram in the wrong slots but quickly fixed that before I even did a test boot.
I wanted to go with an all white build but after persuing the forums for a couple weeks I decided against it. I still love the design of the h440 case in white, and its a very newb friendly case. There arent a lot of cases out there that I liked so still decided on the case.
In terms of mods, I spray painted the shroud on my gpu white (4 screws hold it in place so easy to get off/on) I spray painted my SSD white as well. The white I used is Rustoleum high heat spray enamel. Basically has a temp rating of 600+ degrees so itll be fine in my case. Solid coverage, matte finish.
For the silver nxzt logo i took that off and used rustoleum metallic finish. Not quite what i was goin for and I put it on a lil thick so took awhile to dry and has some finger prints that I need take care of. I am thinking of spraying the black pats of my case silver as well. I think it'd be pretty cool.
In terms of specs...I bought stuff that would match together as I care for aesthetics, as much as good performance. Plus silence is golden and was hoping for a pretty quiet build, which this build is (im a light sleeper and this doesnt wake me up at all)
everyday mundane tasks, this rig is silent. Like you need to put your head up near the case to really hear it. Ive only gamed on it once and it was still silent.
edit: added lights! wooo
