Hello everyone, how are you doing? I'm here to share with you all my first build. I wanted to make a desktop for gaming and maybe video editing. At first i thought about making a Intel & Nvidia build...however i ended up by changing my mind a lot of times between the 3 Giants INTEL, NVIDIA and AMD...So i decided to go with something more light on my wallet and beautiful in my eyes.
Since it was my first time building a PC i was kinda afraid of ruining everything. So i took my time and worked on it slowly (...dont ask me how long it took >.>...) and while i was starting to put the pieces together and working on the cable management (which i did an amazing job :D) i found a issue with one of the fan cable extension from Bitfenix, one of the 3 braided wires that connect to the head pin got loose, so it took me a few hours to fix it and make sure that it would still work so i could connect it to the bottom fan.
Aside from that, the only problem i also had was with the PSU and the bottom fan, but this was a silly mistake which surely wont happen again, because what actually happened was that i ended up installing the bottom fan before the PSU and didn't realized how much space that the cables from the PSU would require. So i had to remove the bottom fan and re-install it in a better position which would give space for the PSU cables.
When i started i didn't knew a thing and i was really nervous to be honest...but now i feel like it was easy to build and that i was overreacting and shouldn't be so worried about it, because building a PC is a lot of FUN!!! I enjoyed building mine a lot and the challenges that appeared while i was doing it, my only concern and issues were with win8.1 setp up and SSD + HDD configuration, but nothing that a couple of youtube videos couldn't help me fix it.
By the way i bought everything from Amazon.co.uk and i was lucky to get a r9 290 for 250£. I had an amazing experience and i'm really looking forward for my next build, however the next time it will be a different color theme xD. Well i'm leaving some pictures of my All Blue AMD Build, sorry for the lack of quality >_< my phone isn't that great :p Cheers!!
