Description

Well here is my first PC build ever, this took me much longer time than I thought it would but it was all worth it.

This one is (obviously!) gaming oriented but I'm using it to programming learning in college right now, so it is a win win situation for me. I know I could've got some more good price/value parts for it if I ignored the aesthetics but ******* this thing looks nice!

I'm currently configuring it and planning on overclocking my CPU between 4.3 and 4.5 GHz soon.

I did it myself and I think it turned out pretty well, if you have suggestions feel free to leave them, in the comments and thanks beforehand.

EDIT: Already overclocked the CPU to 4.5GHz it runs just fine and little temperature avg rise, from 36C on IDLE to 40C with the OC, performance increase as expected and everything runs smooth as always.

Part Reviews

CPU

Pretty good, works just as expected and no problem whatsoever. Loving it!

Easy to install, very silent and keeps CPU nice and cool.

Easy to handle BIOS, very good looking, white LEDs add a very nice look to the PC, easy to build on, no problems.

Memory

No problems, looks astonishing, a little pricey tho.

Super fast, boots windows as fast as you imagine, good price.

Nice build! My only suggestion is flip the two case fans in the front so that they're sucking air into your case, instead of blowing out. At the moment you have all your fans blowing air out of the case, which creates negative air pressure (and isn't ideal for temperatures). Other than that nice job!

Thanks for the feedback but I'll only switch the top one because I want the RGB fans to show tbh, but thanks I didn't even notice

flip the top and front fans around. intake from the front, exhaust out the top and rear.

I've heard murmurs about that mobo, does it actually get blocked PCIe's or nah? also, love the color scheme +1

I think it could depending on your case in my case the last PCIe is kind of blocked but only because I populated the SSD space with the HUE+.
