Description

I had every intention of building a clean white build using the S340 white case and with this in mind I started purchasing the required parts. I saw the RAM I wanted at a good price so started with that - 32 GB Corsair white LED.

The following week I was trawling on Amazon's warehouse deals and spotted some real bargains so White went out of the window in favour of the Red & Black bargains I had found.

I might swap out the white LED ram for Red at some point but I will live with it for now.

I have been using Mac's for a few years now but decided to get back into PC gaming as I just can't get on with consoles. This is the First build I have ever done where I have thought about and tidied the cabling as I haven't had a windowed case before and my 1st PC was a 386 (think that cost nearly as much as this back in the day).

Anyway's I am pleased with the build and even more pleased with the price I paid e.g the Monitor was in the region of £670, ok it had been returned and the box had a few tears in it but the thing is perfect condition.

The boot drive is the Samsung M.2 SM961 256GB and the 2x Sandisk 480GB SSD's are configured as RAID 0.

Oh and there's a Hue+ in there too, hidden in one of the drive bays round the back.

Aw man, did you know about the 950 PRO M.2 drives, they are faster than your current drive, faster than most SSDs, and it is Black PCB.

Got a great price on this and it's still no slouch.

It's still fast but that 950 is a beast, I work with computers full time and let's say my coworkers that build systems are jelly.. But I am also the youngest member of the team by like ten years... so no kids.

I've used it before. Kept my old FX-6300 processor under 40 C under load.

Keeping my CPU nice and cool and install was a breeze, easier than corsair AIO's I have tried.

Yes I'm a leftie - you spotted that I WASD'd the arrow keys.

The cables were from Overclockers they are the bitfenix ones they do loads of colours https://www.overclockers.co.uk/bitfenix-alchemy-24pin-atx-extension-30cm-sleeved-black-red-black-cb-077-bx.html https://www.overclockers.co.uk/bitfenix-alchemy-8pin-pcie-extension-45cm-sleeved-black-red-black-cb-078-bx.html
