This was a blast to build and thanks for the help from several folks here at PCPP in helping me put this together! I've purchased >20 prebuilt home systems (desktop and laptop) since the 80's, but this was my first build....and I can't wait to do it again.
Everything came together without a problem and a couple of build videos on YouTube were very valuable in making sure it was done right the first time. Prices have already started to drop a bit on these components in the last month and no doubt will continue to do so. I plan on using the system mainly for Office, XPlane, streaming and online 2D games. At present, I don't have anything overclocked and will see whether it becomes a necessity. I'm recently retired and try to be in front of a computer as little as possible, so while I thoroughly enjoy looking at others colorful builds here, it wasn't something I wanted to incorporate on this build.
I was in such a hurry to put everything together that I gave little attention to cable management (as you can see). I used 300mm Antec cable extensions and given the size of the case, 500mm would have been better suited. In the next month, I'll likely take everything apart, improve the cable management, install an AIO (which I wish I'd done from the start), and get some cable extensions on the Noctua fans. Otherwise, when the next iteration of GPU's come out, I'll upgrade the 1070 Ti and install the 1070 Ti in the desktop I just passed along to a family member.
Thanks to PCPP for making the build process so easy and fun!
