This is my sisters Christmas present. A very affordable pc.
Very interesting cable management. Honestly i like it, i never thought it doing it like that before.
Thank you! Loom tubing is perfect for hiding many wires and also alowing air/dust to flow through the case.
Hey man nice build. Reminds me of when I was seven and my older brother did the same for me for my birthday and showed me how to build a PC for the first time. To me, it was awesome to be that one girl growing up who knew how to build PC's. Which, led to a life-long love of PC's and bein a techie. Anyways, very nice build! I know your sis will love it. +1
Computer Techs are the best boyfriends of the 21 century. Good hunter 10000bc = Computer Tech 2015 ;)
Have a good holiday! -Cheers
that is a good build. I bet you must get crazy overclocks with that vacuum sucking all that hot air out. jk
Lolz! That's just split wire loom, not vacuum hose. I tend to use spiral wrap loom myself; you don't have to worry about the ends coming undone.
I know in the future I will go with liquid cooling if necessary but she doesnt really need more performance that it's clock speeds already provides. Thanks for commenting :)
Nice of you to build that for your sister. +1
She has always supported me in anything I do. She deserves it! Thanks! :)
nice pc :)
Nice clean build!
Thank you! It can be tedious making sure everything fits together nicely but its well worth it when you need to work on it in the future.
Cool, bet she will appreciate it.
I just showed her this post now I just have to give it to her despite the biggest snow storm in a decade lol
Man, we don't even have snow on the ground here in Wisconsin. :( Best of luck, and Happy Holidays!
Nice, I just finally received all the parts (aside from monitor) for my brother's PC I'll be building as a Christmas gift.
That is a cool present. I dig the lighting. Nicely done. I'm sure your sister will love it. Nice hardware choices.
Thanks! Merry Christmas :)
Merry Christmas to you too.
What is the giant vacuum hose?
Look around the engine of your (older) car and you'll see some of that. It's called split wire loom, and it's used to group loose wires together. Oldskool, but it works. :)
Looks like it was repurposed for cable management. :)
I think repurposing things can be a creative way of making things unique and beautiful in its own way :)
What Kind of techniques do people use today?
Its loom tubing lol it keeps air flow over the cables and makes it easy to dust. Its actually one of my favorite parts of cable management haha
I usually just run my cables behind the motherboard tray.
Do you think you can do me a huge favour and linking all the stuff for this exact build without the monitor keyboard and mouse? Really nice build tho
Her bro, nice build! Can u take a pic like that first one but with side closed, so i can see how will CPU cooler and RAM look through window?
Hey, you must be an amazing brother to build that for her! I have a question though, can that Gpu run some triple A games on High/Medium or Low? Im mostly playing Arkham Asylum, The Witcher 3, Minecraft and Dying Light.
