Hey guys! This is my first ever build. Took me about 2-3 hours to build. Another 2 hours to fix a problem(forgot to put the cpu 4 pin power) and another hour to install the OS so that's about 6 hours from 11pm to 6am. I was so excited that I forgot to take pictures of the individual parts and build log. All I have is the finished product. -__-
This build is for light gaming(World of tanks, MOBA, MMO) and uhh, general work. Went with a "black and white" theme. Certainly faster than my 3-year old amd laptop that got burnt. Haven't OC'ed it yet since I'm noob but when I tried OC Genie, it just went to 4.2 so I turned it back. I don't know if Coretemp's accurate but I get 0c (?) on idle and about 22c on full load. Motherboard says otherwise, 35c on idle. Any suggestions on how to get accurate readings? 3Dmark is on its way too. Also, I've purchased a HDMI cable for $37. Forgot to add it and dunno why custom parts aren't showing prices.
The OS, I bought from my boss. Better than buying online or going to then store. (I live right across my job) and the Dvd drive for installation and who knows what. Haven't mailed the rebate yet so the PSU still stands at 44.99 and another thing is Newegg had a promotion going on last week so I got $25 off of my order. Ordered it on Sunday and surprisingly got everything on Tuesday, I chose free shipping btw, which should be just be arriving next week.
All thanks to skemble and other pcpartpicker users who helped in picking the parts.
Future upgrades? None as of now. Cable management was kind of tough because I was thinking of upgrades. GPU might still fit. Never planned to use the drive cages but I don't have any velcro or any double sided tape at the moment. But I have to say, I had a ton of FUN building this. I wanna do it again. Cheers!
Edit: Added Temperature picture from CoreTemp. RealTemp doesn't support CPU.
