Description

It was tough. This is an upgrade to my first PC build which is Byron 1.0 The differences are I am now using a GTX1070 GPU as opposed to the older GTX1050ti and I added a 500 gb SSD (750 gb ssd in total)

It's messy inside and upgrading SSD/HDD in this build is more than just a pain. Will share some more pics once I'm done with the cable management.

Please feel free to comment on any better parts or just any advice will do 'cause I'm totally new to this stuff.

I'd switch to this case: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/X44NnQ/fractal-design-define-mini-c-with-window-microatx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-def-mini-c-bk-w

Super easy cable management and much easier to get at any components.

Thanks, appreciate the suggestion. But considering it's already nearly £90 on Amazon, I might as well go for this one instead: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/VxRzK8/lian-li-pc-o11dw-atx-full-tower-case-pc-o11dw

What do you think?
