So finally, after gaming on a laptop, lurking on the buildapc subreddit, and completed builds section here. Decided to build my own, what better way to start with new Ryzen CPUs. So just going to run over briefly why I chose each part.
CPU - So i became interested in building a PC as I got tired of a slow laptop, at first I was going with intel, specifically the i5 kaby lake lineup, luckily I didn't pull the trigger too early, and low and behold decided to go with the ryzen 1600, also planning to stream so the extra cores should help
Cooler - I initially was just going for a stock cooler, but after watching a few reviews I decided to go with an aftermarket cooler like the famous hyper 212 evo, however, I saw the deepcool captain 240 ex for a decent price, So hey I went for that.
Mobo - So I really wanted to build a mini ITX build, however at this current date of writing, There weren't any b350/x370 in the market, so I went with the cheapest b350 in the market, however I did regret this a little as there is only 1 fan header, but hey the accents on the board goes with the whole build.
RAM - Simple, wanted a white build, so instead of going for a RAM with a white heatsink, I decided to go with a LED heatsink.
Storage - went for the cheapest 240gb SSD, and the all famous WD blue 1TB HOWEVER, all was not well as it was the only component bought that did not work - more on this later.
GPU - went for a 1070, avoiding those blower style coolers, so went for this one, the white LED at the wrong also goes with the build.
Case - wanted something that was white as this was an all white build, didn't want to go for a mid atx as the mobo would look weird and I don't like that, so I went for this case.
PSU - wanted something that was modular and gold rated, so got the cheapest one in that filter, I initially thought it was fully modular, but when I opened the box it was semi, it's not too bad, but yeah.
Build Process - It was as expected, did the following order: CPU>RAM>cooler bracket>MOBO mounted to case>installed PSU routing all the necessary cables>installed storages> plugged everything in>installed cooler> installed GPU viola.
Problems - I thought the stock backplate on the motherboard wouldn't come off as it was glued in, just carefully pushed it out and it came off. Wanted to fit the radiator at the top as an exhaust however it was hitting the motherboard so I put it in the front (went for a pull config so I had space to install a 2nd case fan at the top as an exhaust), good thing the deepcool captain 240 ex came in with a pwm fan hub I used all of the slots as I had 4 fans in total, last but not least, booted first time, however the HDD was not being read in the BIOS, luckily my SSD was fine, requested a return and bought from the same shop, probably just a faulty one from the shelf.
Future - I am definitely going to buy some LED's to better stand out the inside of the case making use of that window!
So now I present (name from an anime called Code Geass)
P.S I didn't expect the CPU to be that heavy! haha
