This is my first ever PC build and I'm super happy with how it turned out. I grew up an Apple and Xbox user and my friends have been bugging me for years to build a gaming PC, and I've been wanting to build one for years but I was waiting to get further along in school before I did.
Well I finally caved and bought one and it's been such a great decision so far, I absolutely love it! I've been using it for over a week now and it's been able to run everything I play on max/nearly max settings and I've had no issues with it at all. Yes I'm a little bit of a Corsair fanboy but their stuff is just so gorgeous. The case itself was a little bit of a challenge to build in due to the size, but it was a great feeling once I figured everything out. And I do love the case because there isn't a ton of unused space which bothers me for some reason. The components fill the space perfectly and the case is small enough where moving it is easy, which is necessary because I'm still in school. I know the case is advertised as an airflow case, but there's seriously a ton of airflow through this case and it helps keep everything really cool! My GPU temp has never gone above 65 C even when playing Metro Exodus on ultra settings.
Overall, I'm beyond happy with my PC and my decision to switch.
Big thanks to my friends for helping me with the build as well and making sure nothing blew up when it got powered on for the first time, and for gifting me the mouse and keyboard!
