Hey PCPP

This was my first build and I have spent months looking for parts and I finally decided it was time.

Backstory:

I have been into gaming for about 4-5 years. I always bought pre-builts because I was too nervous too build my own. Everyone around me made it look like it was nearly impossibru. But then one day, I decided it was time. I spent several hours a day researching, and it was well worth it.

PC Build comments:

As I said, I spent months looking for the right components, and personally, I think that was the hardest part. The building went like a breeze, I had some trouble mounting the CPU cooler since the water hoses were very stiff. I found out that my board only had one case fan connector, so I bought a fan splitter and cable extensions, I replaced the stock cables and rerouted all cables in the back. Cable management is on point 0.0. Moving on, I watched Techsource "How to build a PC Guide" when installing the difference components. I received my RAM a few days after I was done building, I was really nervous and to my luck, it didn't start, I immediately called my uncle and we later found out that the display-port wasn't properly connected >facepalm<. He helped me through the bios, it had some unexpected surprises.

  • I couldn't enter the bios: Solution = Restart and rapidly press F11
  • When is was done installing win10, it didn't restart. But I didn't know it had to. It then proceeded to try to install win10 again. Solution = restart my PC

-- TEMPS: I haven't OC'ed any of my stuff yet, planning to do in the future. These are the temps:

CPU, IDLE: 20C LOAD: 40C GPU, IDLE: 25C LOAD: 70C MAX, hovers around 65-70C MOBO, 20-35C OVERALL ALL Storage hovers around 25-30C

-- Answers:

  • In the near future I am moving and I am planning to get a new table, since this one is too small for my liking.
  • There is no picture of my chair. That is because rn I am using a dinner table chair. I have ordered a office chair, hoping it arrives in the following days.
  • I am using the stock coolers that came with my case (H200)
  • I am using the PC for gaming and productivity.

Clean build. How loud would you say the system is? And where did you get that headphone stand?

Thank you for the comment!

It is definitely not silent, but it is not too loud either. I would like it to be more silent.

It is a headset stand from ADX, doubt you will find it if you don't live in EU.

I don't overclock, but those look like good temperatures. That case looks nice as well - it's always good to see people NOT using the same old out-dated black cases

How was it mounting that hard drive assuming the cables were or might be brushing up against the edge of the case boss?

Since i used extensions aswell, i zip-tied the ones not in use together. I cramped them in there, was a bit scary, but i think it was the best solution.
