After Months, of procrastination, saving and final selection of my parts, I was finally able to build and make my first ever PC build which I titled the frost. It all started when I was first introduced to the Enthoo Evolv Cases. At that moment in time I persuaded myself to get the case which I eventually did but then saved up for the rest of the parts. My build was inspired from a you tube video showing the Evolv Series Case and also from one of our very own Pcpartpicker Completed builds by jojo9752 when his first ITX build came out.
CPU – I wanted something that I could use for Graphic design and video editing which is why i got the i7 4790k and also wanted it to be able to hackintosh and I will also overclock this overtime.
CPU Cooler – I wanted to get a AIO cooler so I decided to get the corsair h110 GTX
Memory – I initially wanted to get the Kingston Hyperx Fury blue but they didn't have it in stock so I went and got the next best thing.
Storage – The Two 120gb SSD's are used separately one for Windows and one for mac when I hackintosh this build.
Video Card - I wanted to get a great graphics card within my budget so then I bought the gigabyte and will overclock down in the future.
Power Supply – It’s a PSU that I wanted to have enough juice for the PC while still under budget of the build.
Case – The case I got was the Phanteks Entho Evolv Itx because i will be moving within a year to go to university, while making it slightly easier to transport. I also decided to mod the case and honestly i am very pleased with the results after I finish my build. This is a nice looking build but the case itself is doable to route the cables around since this is my first build. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone who's going to build an ITX build
Overall, I really do love my first build and will think about upgrading in the future to possibly to x99 and hopefully be able to create my second build. This was a first build so I did have a bit of trouble doing the cable management which took me a couple of house but in the end as I said before i am really pleased with the results.
