Description

Hello!

This is my first ever custom computer build i have done, and i did it for my Dads office space. The computer they needed, needed a bit of power but not a lot. I also Built this to last, so i did not cheap out on any parts. It was very fun to build and cant wait to build his actual home PC and once mine gets a few more years old and the parts are outdated, mine.

The case does not allow for any cable management in behind, it was the first thing I tried but could not fit the side panel back on. Although the pictures do not show it, the cables are tight against the back of the case.

The RAM arrived a week later than the rest of the parts, (did not realize until i had the PSU and MB in) so i do not have any pictures of it.

If there is anything you think i could have done better (part price wise) id love to hear it!

Part Reviews

CPU

No Problems with it. Although for what it is, it is a bit expensive, but worth it either way.

CPU Cooler

Simple, Cheap, and good quality. What is not to love?

Motherboard

Only complaint is that the MB only has 2 total fan headers (1 for CPU and 1 for case). if you buy this motherboard, you will need a fan splitter. also the manual that comes with it is horrible, tells you nothing. You will need to go online and read that one.

Memory

Cheap ddr4 RAM with the usual base clock speed. good for anyone who is not going to OC the rams memory speed.

Case

Simple case that looks good for office spaces. not too big, not too small. Lots of possible fan positions for great cooling if your MB supports it!

Power Supply

Good PSU that is still overkill for a all out PC, 80+ Gold Certified is the reason you should get this. you do NOT want to cheap out on your PSU!

Optical Drive

Basic CD drive nothing bad about it!

Operating System

Love Windows 10, just don't like the expensive price tag for the pro version for office domains

The picture presentation is great build, but fix that cable management, or a least tight them.

Agreed, it was a beautiful build, photos were very well done and then black licorice spaghetti just all over the place.

Best I could really do, cables did not fit in behind. I could do the small cables but.

Its your first build, so you'll learn this as time goes on but there are cutouts and holes to run all of those cables through, right now it just kind of looks like a nightmare. But still a very good build for your first one, just FYI, HDDs are kind of going by the wayside for installing an OS on. Standard now is a low to medium sized SSD, like an ADATA 128GB for all of the programs and then the larger sized HDD for storage of more potentially space eating files.

That n200 doesn't have very much for cable management, used it for my grandma's build, and it sucked. Great build quality and aesthetics, terrible cable management.

That why I said hed learn these things and additional techniques as he builds more and more. Ive managed to add cable management abilities to old cases with no cable management and add it in areas of newer cases to tailor additional management by using pop rivets and zip tie saddles. But im also OCD as can be about cable management.

The pictures do not show it but the cabling is actually neat, the case does not leave any room for cables in behind, I could do it for small ones but... power cables don't fit at all.
