Description

This is my first build and I'm super proud of it! I based this roughly off the entry level AMD Gaming build, with a couple things upgraded. I added the ssd, keyboard and mouse because they are part of the final product, although they were given to me by a friend.

I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to build. I used BitWit's step by step tutorial on youtube, and after being super careful and rewatching each step multiple times, I proceeded and finished the build. I had a bit of trouble with the fans- the screws for some reason don't actually fit the holes in the fan that they're supposed to go through. It's not a big deal though, they were simply the cheapest fans that had blue led's on them at the time. I will probably replace them at some point because they are rather noisy. They do the job though, three input and 2 output fans keep temps below 70, even under load. The case looks super good: ever since I saw someone with a windowed case I knew I had to have one. This thermaltake does the job quite well, and leaves some room in case I ever want to upgrade something.

All said and done, the total bill for everything minus the keyboard, mouse, and ssd was about $700 at the time of purchase.

Feel free to ask questions!

I like it! It looks like a good and practical build. Have you tried playing any of the Fallout games on it?

I have fallout 3 and new vegas downloaded, so far I've only played new vegas.

To me, New Vegas is the best of the Fallout games as of now.

I'm really interested in that team that's rebuilding new vegas in the fallout 4 engine. I also want to get into modding new vegas, so far I've only played vanilla.

I didn't know that they were redoing New Vegas. I've only played/finished Fallout 4 on pc, the other Fallout games I played on xbox. If they are redoing New Vegas, I'm definitely going to download it. Do you know what game engine they'll be using? The only game mods I have are for Street Fighter IV and V.

It's not actually Bethesda that's redoing it, it's a group of modders. They're redoing it inside the fallout 4 creation engine.

Any problems running your memory at 3000 mt/s?

I haven't tried to overclock anything so far, the box it came in says it runs at 3000, but the BIOS seems to think it's running at 2133. It runs fine for what I need, to I don't mess with it.

If you want to know, you can download cpu-z and it will tell you on the memory tab. (Take memory frequency in MHz and double it.) Or you can just not worry about it...

Very nice job matching parts, like to see what you could do w a bigger budget.

Great build! How was building with this case? I'm building my first pc soon and want to use this.

It was a great experience for a first build. The only gripe I have with it is that the front dust filter is really hard to take out and clean. You have to take the whole front of the pc apart, basically. Other than that, it was very easy and intuitive to put together. Did you end up building it? How did it go?

Is it possible to unscrew the feet from the bottom of the case? I'm hoping to lay it horizontal under my tv as an htpc/gaming rig.

I haven't done it, but the feet are held on with phillips screws, so it's definitely possible.

why does it say that 8gb of ram cost you $435? 2200g is better and costs more than $100 less, and you really shouldn't have gotten a clear side panel if you weren't going to do any cable management and only put an led strip in for aesthetics.
