Description

Hello I am a general user of all tech. Alot of time I just want to future proof my computer buy adding components but this is the first build from start to finish that I have done. The full Adobe Suite, Pro-tools and Fruity loops and what every I deem worthy to run on this rig I will. P.S You might want to get a case with a DVD drive bay. I had problems with the Network device drivers when I installed Windows 10. So I jimmy rigged an old drive to the SATA 6 ports. Other than that it took about 2 days to become fully useful. It felt so good when it was over. MY FIRST BUILD IS OVER!!!!!!!

Part Reviews

CPU

I don't do PC gaming but if I did I would recommend this durable , Overclocking beast of a processor. I can get 4.0 GHz out of this easy.

CPU Cooler

It comes with a 2 Led Fan and its white. Duhhhh!!!! I only use one My CPU is pretty cool.

Motherboard

This MotherBoard is nice. I got it because it was white and it went with my build. When I found out that it was Wifi and Bluetooth capable, I was sold plus it has a sleek design.

Memory

I know I should have gotten a faster set, but hey they are the only ones making White DDR4 so It's all good.

Storage

I took every thing of my old Hard drive 320 gigs to be exact. This made my computer extra fast. I just use the other drives for backup now. I plan to get another one so I can create an SSD raid.

Video Card

It was over kill but hey 4 gig of ram means I can play the games that demand answers.

Case

I actually didn't even use this case. I just could not find the NZXT S340 White in PCpartpicker so I ordered it directly from them. Only draw back of this case is there is no space for a disk drive. Makes it real hard to add drivers and install software especially since the Asus motherboard I got did not have network drivers ,(The exact thing that you need to get the rest of the drivers). I had to Rig up a DVD/rw just to install drivers. That was fun.

Power Supply

Yayyyyyyyy! Power. EVGA is an industry standard in Power supply. Extremely Modualar so I could pick and choose what I want to add power to. It makes no sense to have all that clutter in you case for no reason. Love it.

For someone who has never built a PC before this was the easiest process . The hard part is picking the parts.

I'm loving the Sabertooth motherboard, the RAM goes very, very nice with it, and the cooler only makes it better. Well done, +1
