Hi guys! This is my second build ever and I wanted to do a blue theme on this one. Also the point of this build was to kinda save money/have upgrade-ability so that I can sooner or later have a full fledged machine but for right now I just have lower quality hardware (yet they still pack a punch = Kaby Lake Pentium, and 1 stick of 8 gb of ram) Everything I got on here was on sale(mostly new egg), but I bought the Pentium used on craigslist.
Other things to know is that I didn't buy all of this initially. I actually had the RX 470 and SSD from my last build.
I went out of my comfort zone buying a BioStar motherboard and I do NOT regret it. It came with an RGB fan which is in the back of my case. This allowed me to put the pre-installed fan in the back in front! My review says it all.
I also bought the Pure Rock Slim because the stock fan is just too loud. It actually knocked 10 degrees off my idle temps and is silent!
I did my best to cable manage too, so hopefully you guys will enjoy that. If any of you have any tips or constructive criticism let me know! Thanks, Papa Dave
Great CPU for the price! Intel did a great job bringing back Pentiums that perform almost similar to their i3s.
Silent and knocked off 10 degrees off my stock cooler.
I got a $70 board that came with an RGB LED fan (the one in the back) and 4 ram slots, 3 system fan headers, 2 CPU fan headers, and 2 RGB 5050 LED headers. I had no problems with this board, and the bios were easy to get around. This is a great deal in my opinion. It also came with an RGB fan and two rgb headers which is really cool. Would recommend this.
Love the breathing blue led's on this ram. Works great, although I bought one thinking I could get some in the future but I think they stopped selling them ):
This case has so much to offer. You get 5 fans that are all pretty quiet and also comes with a controller. The window is beautiful and the case provides great cable management options! Would recommend this case to the pro and the new builders!
Love the semi-modular option! Silent! Black Cables!
