+ Total (United States):
I've been wanting to upgrade my old computer setup for a while and got to a point where I had the ability to do so. I tried to research components and things the best I could and asked plenty of questions on /r/buildapc which helped out a lot. To be honest some of my component decisions were based on aesthetics and not purely the best performance for price. I wanted to make a clean looking build and feel like I succeeded, however I didn't take pictures of the back of the case so you'll have to trust me when I say I managed the cables back there. I also had some high quality materials available to me to build some of my own PSU cables which I did for the 24 pin motherboard cable, CPU cable. and GPU cable. I reused capacitors that came with the stock psu cables and I also did all of the splices/splits/crimps/stripping/sleeving/etc. I'm happy with how everything turned out, and I especially like my new ultrawide monitor. I haven't bought the UPS yet, but probably will do so soon to ensure everything is protected. Let me know what you think!
