Description


Background~

I have some friends that play PC games, and I have wanted to for a while. Before this build, my computer was a garbage laptop with 2 GB of ram and 20 GB of SSD. The laptop was pretty much just for doing homework (it was barely even able to run youtube). I use a wireless network adapter because my router is way too far to be wired into my PC. I pretty much am going to be playing FPS games and some MOBAs (such as Smite and LoL). I also edit stuff on photoshop for fun, and having a great CPU is a huge step-up. I built the PC with my friend and stepfather, it took us almost 5 hours, but it definitely paid off.

Problems I Faced~

When building my PC, I didn't experience any issues besides the installation of my fans (motherboard only had one system fan plug, so I bought an adapter), and I had to run a SETA cable to connect a CD drive to the back since my friend had a windows disc. I also had a problem using my headset on my computer, but I fixed the issue with my friend after a few tries.


UPDATE: I purchased a bequiet! Pure Rock CPU cooler!

Part Reviews

CPU

Fastest CPU I have used in my life, great for the price, and it is really good for light editing and gaming

Motherboard

Gets the job done, it is pretty good. It only has one case fan slot, so I had to use an adapter.

Video Card

Great graphics card for the price! I do not think I will need to upgrade it for a while.

Case

Amazing case! Great cable management and lots of cable routes to the back of the case. I had a question about the case, and customer service was very good! Not to mention, the case is beautiful, and I love the option to change the color of the LEDs. I would definitely recommend buying this case.

Mouse

I love the sensor, and it has a good software. I do not like that it does not have a braided cable and some of the colors are not very accurate on the mouse.

Headphones

It is great for the price, but I experienced some issues using it on my PC (it was resolved), it may have had to do with my motherboard though. I also used it on my PS4, and it is really good! It has a very good mic, pretty good sound quality (keep the price in mind). However, the mic sometimes picks up the sound coming from my earcups, causing echo.
