Thoughts on build Pros: I absolutely love it, I am both proud of myself and impressed by myself that I built a working computer! I love the LED lights on the case for a white build they make it look like ice at night. The motherboard is great lots of usb's and connectors. I love the single stripe of gold LEDS on the side of the motherboard it adds a nice touch when looking in from my case's window. The case also has a multicolored LED on the front title plate which cycles through which goes well with the keyboard I bought. The ram was easy to install and very fast. The cup slot was also easy to use as well as installing the fan plate on the back of the mobo. I love the fan comes with it's own thermal paste and though it may not be a high quality artic silver paste it still does it's job. The optical drive and ram were both very easy to install and required not screws (that was awesome!)
The Cons: Some issues I had building were with my case I had to pull the cpu power cord through the top portion of the case (cable management) before I installed the mobo, due to it blocking the hole. I thought they could have made a bit more space to pull cables through the top portion. I also did not like, and maybe this is just an issue with my mobo brand, but it had an extra stint hole which served no purpose as my case did not have a place holder for that hole. Another issue with my mother board was the IO shield. I don't know if it was my case or the shield, but it took me a hell of a lot longer to install that shield than it needed to. It also makes me question if my usb ports on the back of my mobo are working or if the shield is just blocking better access to those ports (this could be user fault though). I also had some issues with my power cord, I wish that i had found a modular power supply, because of how easily tangled the wires get as well as not being able to detach unused ones leading to having to bunch up my cables in the front. A bigger issue I had with the case (and could potentially be user error as well) was when I went to install my cpu the case said it had dimensions for that GPU, but unfortunately I was not able to fit it in correctly to the slots. I had to rip out a good chunk of the back of my case (which was easy enough), but not as aesthetically pleasing as I would have liked and my gpu is also not very secure.
Overall, I am satisfied with my build and enjoyed every minute of building it (even the moments I threw my tools across the floor).
It's windows 10.
Wireless Network Adapter
This was easy to install and worked well. It has a great signal and downloads pretty fast for wifi. This worked well with my mobo.
