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