So just saying, usually a Micro-ATX motherboard, or at least the one I got, only has one slot for the case fan, because of this I had to buy a splitter for the fan cables. There are two case fans and only one slot :D.
In case your wondering (get it, CASE????) the splitter I got was this one : https://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-Splitter-Duplicator-Converter-Adapter/dp/B01N0XQ7XC/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1514177150&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=case+fan+splitter&psc=1
And my motherboard is a MSI B350M Gaming Pro Micro ATX motherboard
Just wanted to let you guys know :D
Thanks for the comment! It means a lot!
Thanks for your help! It's been great having the community spread the love on this build! I will try putting in an SSD at a later date. From all the comments I'm sure its a good idea now :). You definitely should play Fortnite! It's super fun, of course don't give up PUBG or whatever other Battle Royale you have been playing :D. If you do find yourself playing, try 50 v 50, it's an amazing game mode! :)
I will definitely look into it. I heard SSDs from Samsung are good, but I wasn't too sure. Thanks for the help! I will definitely buy a Samsung later down the line
I definitely will one day
Thank you for your compliments. They really mean a lot! I never expected this to do as well as it did. The community here is amazing because of people like you and I'm happy to be part of it!
Thanks for your comment. I never expected this to blow up as much as it did! Thank you so much for your suggestion. To be honest I was kind of stuck on how to give the CPU deal a nice twist. Thread-ripping and busting has a nice ring to it.
I forgot to add but I will say it now, because of the Micro-ATX motherboard it only has one fan connection for the System Fan which is 4 pin. Since the pin is a 4 pin an there are two three pin fans you can still plug in one but for both you need an adapter of some sort. Hope that helped!
I would also like to thank all of my other friends who helped me every step of the way, this build goes to you too!
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I considered putting in an SSD but my budget wasn't big enough :). Might add it later though :) Thank you again for commenting!
I tried that a little while ago and I found for some reason the GPU actually manages to run cooler than if the PSU is flipped. I'm not sure why.
Yup! Thank you so much for your help! I will try do a bunch of cable management later.
Hey Lobster, what's a build log? Is it like a build guide?
Wow just wow. Thanks for all the help you have given me, I finished the build for $550 and it runs like a charm! It works amazing and the process was buttery smooth! Thank you so much again. You have been a crucial part of my PC build. I have named it Triniking Lobster!
Hey Triniking, I finished my build a while ago and thought I would get back to you. Thank you so much for your help. The games run fine and without a hitch thank you again!
Sorry for my last reply!
It's great that you took the time and effort to help me out, I really appreciate it. I see that the CPU does come with a stock cooler and it will fit my needs! Do you have a build video for this?
Thanks so much!
Wow this was amazing! Thank you so much for helping me like this. I was wondering does this need a cooler, I was thinking of going with the Hypermaster, I put it in this build and it told me that you may need an additional way to hook it up. Do you recommend any coolers?
I'm new to this but I have done a lot of research and I decided to customize this build, and came out with a end result of this, https://pcpartpicker.com/list/2TBJYr
Is this okay or do you think I should change stuff up, like add a SSD, or any other part. I'm planning to run games like Fortnite, Overwatch,, Rainbow Six, Forza Horizon, and so on. Not so demanding games, but I just need something to run them.

To answer your question, using this build you would probably get over 53 frames per second, on pretty great graphics. This video may help you, too bad he recorded during the night though. Have fun!
Thanks for your reply, I am going to buy a cooler, the same as the one mentioned in your pc part picker list. In fact, many of things on your list are the same as mine except for a few variations. Speaking of the i5, I do not have the intention of overclocking, and I do have thermal paste. I was also wondering, based on your experience do the prices drop considerably on Black Friday or should I order now instead? Thanks so much!
Hi, guys I was wondering about switching out the parts in this build guide with various other parts. I'm keeping most of the stuff the same except for the Storage and CPU, I will be switching to an Intel - Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor, instead of the Pentium listed here. Will I run into any problems when switching? I was also wondering if the case itself has a built-in cooler, or if I have to buy a new cooler, I was planning on getting a Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler.
Thanks for your help
