Before anyone gives me grief about the name, my online sign name for PS3 and PC has been BabySealBeater. Yeah it's jacked up, but 10 years ago I thought it was hilarious, and I never really wanted to change it. So there it is, onto the build.
It may not be the most original build, I've seen these parts paired with each other countless times on PCPP. But lets face it, looks dope right?! I love how it looks, especially the case and the mobo/memory combination. I yanked the video card from my previous build, but although it may not be the most powerful GPU out there it still gets the job done admirably.
The hardest part of this build was sleeving the PSU cables. I bought some white Rothco paracord from Amazon and went ahead and watched pretty much every Youtube video I could find on the topic. Still, I wasted about 10 feet of cord before I finally got the hang of it, after that it went incredibly smooth and quick. It was really fun and satisfying to do it myself, and not pay the $80 EVGA or Corsair will charge for custom sleeved cables (who needs a sleeved SATA power cable anyway? nobody sees it!).
Even though it's my favorite part of the build, the case also has one of my biggest gripes. The acrylic window is so delicate it scratches if you breathe on it wrong! It's gonna be impossible to keep it clean. I would really like to replace it with a pane of glass, but that's a little bit beyond my scope of skill.
All in all I love how it came out. But any suggestions/criticisms are welcome. This is my 3rd or 4th build and the first that I actually splurged on a little bit to focus on aesthetics over price-tag.
