Always wanted to build a PC and finally had the budget and a bit of time.
The main motivation behind the build was to have a small gaming machine that would be capable of 4k gaming. This is obviously a bit of an ask without SLI but I'm pretty happy with the results.
The build was relatively simple after having watched a few videos of similar builds including the partpicker one for the 250D. Had a few issues as you would expect on my first build.
1)The IO shield caused some stress in getting the motherboard to fit and required quite a bit of force to hold it in-place while screwing it in.
2) I also struggled getting the H100i on correctly and it required a bit of working into place.
3) Some issues seating the graphics card correctly , it does fit but its pretty tight.
The 840 Pro was recycled from a laptop. Quick mild overclock on the cpu which seems to be rock steady using automatic settings , will look at an overclock on the gpu at some stage.
Have to say PCPartpicker did make the whole process of selecting the system so much easier.
