Description

This was my first build. It took a lot longer than I expected. Probably about 3 hours. I accidentally installed the cpu cooler the wrong way, so I had to unscrew it and flip it around. Then when I was screwing in the motherboard, I dropped a screw and couldn't get it out by shaking so I had to take the motherboard out. Same thing happened when I was screwing down the graphics card. I first took out the graphics card, but couldn't find the screw so I had to take out the motherboard again.

When I finally finished everything and plugged it up, nothing happened. I took the panels off, and looked at everything. It all appeared to be right, so I was really worried that my motherboard was broken or something like that. The first thing I did to try to fix it was to unplug the little cables for the power and stuff. That didn't work. Then I realized that I plugged it in to the wrong place because I misread the label on the mobo, so I put them in another spot with the same amount of pins and it work!

I haven't had time to do anything on it like installing windows, but it was very fun building it. Can't wait to game on it!

Great build dude! My only gripe would be your case, the bitfenix enso. Hows your temps? I've heard that case has absolutely abismle airflow.

How do you like the Zotac 1070ti? I’m building a computer in February for my birthday and want to get that card.

That’s awesome. I have a lot of the same parts. Getting the same CPU, GPU and Ram.
