I am very nervous to share here. I have had a love affair with computers for a while now (even fried a couple...lol!), but never had the guts to try and build one. I had a Dell XPS and was just sick of the dual core processor and other quirks that comes with a PC made by a big manufacturer.
I wanted this new PC to be able to handle a few games and Photoshop CC and Lightroom. I constantly edit photos and graphic designs, so as much RAM as I can get and a quicker processor were things that I looked for first. This site was a HUGE help in choosing everything.
I am enjoying the graphics card but waiting to see how it will all look when I can get a 4K monitor.
I love the Corsair case. I just wish the panels weren't so easily opened with the side handles. My almost 2-year old loves looking inside the PC case, so I have to keep him away.
I can't take credit for physically putting this together. My husband (a huge League of Legends fan and player) put this PC together for me. It was his first time also. He mentioned the roughest part for him was getting the CPU cooler fan installed. I saw comments that the Noctua was huge. I had no idea it'd be that large. Thankfully, I chose full tower case, so it fit.
If anyone has any feedback, I appreciate it. I would like to know if there's a better way to connect the cables and clean it up a bit. I love how some of the builds on here looks so neat inside with the cables altogether. Right now, the cable from the motherboard to the GPU and PSU are a little tight in how they are situated.
