After using laptops for years, I decided it was finally time to setup and build a decent desktop environment. I'm an avid programmer and occasional gamer, and as such, wanted this PC to be compatible with both. The build itself was flawless. Everything went together very smoothly (I will say, the instructions for my CPU fan cooler were rather difficult to understand, but eventually found my way around that.) with no issues. I learned the hard way that you should always have a small windows computer handy to create boot media. Coming from a family that uses MacOS/linux operating systems, I was pretty screwed as far as an OS went for a few days until I got my friend to create me a boot USB.
This was my first build, and for the most part went off without a hitch. If there was one thing I would take away from this personally, is that I probably should have paid more attention to graphics card clearance with the MOBO and case. Luckily for me, I had no issues, close, but manageable.
The PC runs my dual monitor setup incredibly well, and the RGB functionality is quite intriguing. I've had no issues whatsoever.
Pictures to come soon.
