Build

Decent first pc(2014 build)

by TheZhaoster

Description

Basically, this is a computer I built for fun during the summer. It isn’t amazing but it’s not bad either, especially for my first desktop. I built this computer almost 5 years ago and at the time it was pretty good

Part Reviews

CPU

It does what I need it to do, nothing too amazing. I’ve had no need to upgrade even after four years

CPU Cooler

Its decently quiet, and keeps my cpu cooler. I probably could’ve gotten a cheaper cooler, but this is definitely one of the most value liquid coolers I’ve seen

Motherboard

A very good looking motherboard that fits well. BIOS is good, there are really no negatives except for maybe the price

Memory

I could’ve gotten 16GB but for me there is no difference. I’ve never had any problems due to my RAM, even when playing high quality games

Storage

Really nothing for me to say here about this, I mean it is good and has no problems.

Video Card

My most expensive part, even though it is quite outdated, it still runs games like fortnite very nicely( On fortnite I get around 180 FPS average)

Case

My least favorite thing about this build. It’s bulky and really big, has pretty inconvenient cable management, had misaligned screw holes for my motherboard and was overall quite difficult to put everything into it, even though it is a big case

Power Supply

Decent power supply that does what I want it to

Sound Card

decent for the price

Wireless Network Adapter

This didn't even fit in my case, I don't know if that's my cases problem but whatever the cause, I had to return it after spending around an hour trying to get it to fit in my case

Case Fan

Good fans that have a nice color vibrancy to them, but there are cheaper fans that are basically the same

Monitor

Great monitor for everything, and has a good refresh rate for gaming as well

Headphones

Decent headset, sound quality is pretty good and the mic is decent as well. I’ve had this headset for around 3-4 years and it still works fine without and physical or sound problems

I wouldn't recommend setting your computer side ways like that, especially if it's liquid cooled. I am also 12 years old and know a lot about hardware.

I know but my sound card is loose and if I stand it up it will fall down I am trying to fix it and I will then update the photos
