My boy wanted to join the PC gaming world so here we are. After crash coursing for a week or so we came up with a parts list, which was modified a few times but ending up in a pretty good result I believe. I'm sure we could of spent more or less here or there but with not much knowledge I think we made some good choices, while tying to keep upgradeability in mind.
Ended up changing the CPU cooler from the hyper 212 LED to the MSI Core Frozr a few months later cause he wanted a matching theme. Overclocked to 4.0 with no problems and never got over 65c° but ultimately decided to run at 3.8Ghz.
Haven't OC'd the GPU yet, but as of right now it still plays everything well over 60fps on ultra settings 1080p. Titanfall 2 averages around 100fps.
The NZXT 340 came with two case fans. Moved those for the intake fans at the front and they are super quiet.
After updating the BIOS the RAM clocked at 3200mhz without issue.
He assembled for the most part, I helped a little bit with the mounting of the CPU cooler and cable management.
Also built a desk, pics at the end. So hope ya'll enjoy.
