Description

Wanted to upgrade from the laptop I got as a graduation present last summer, had been slowly accumulating peripherals from my last PC (a no-name prebuilt). This is the first computer I built myself and I'm super happy with how it turned out. It's handled everything I've thrown at it so far great and stayed cool while doing it.

Part Reviews

CPU

Nice and affordable and works well

CPU Cooler

Easy install and works like a champ

Motherboard

Comes with lots of helpful programs and all the ports are clearly labled

Storage

Plenty of room when coupled with a regular HDD

Video Card

Stays cool, works well, and fits nicely in my case.

Case

Beautiful case, easy installation of parts, lots of airflow, good cable management. There's nothing bad I can say about this case.

Power Supply

Comes with lots of cable ties for cable management

Optical Drive

It can read and burn cds decently, mine rattles but its also oldish

I used the exact same case too. Nice build.

Consider taking the USB header cables and cables running in a similar path and zipping them underneath the PSU shroud. Maybe consider heatshrinking the other cables running to the mobo and attach that thick black one to the top of the case. It would really tidy up some of your cable area. Please don't take this as criticism though and more so just suggestions. I really like this build. Makes me consider some of these components for a HTPC.
