Description

My first PC build which is mainly for my uni work and casual gaming.

Spectrum + Dawn = THE SPECTRADAWN! haha

First time building this beast with two of my friends, It took us 2 days. I was mostly the Steve Job version during building the PC (as I care so much about aesthetic but not much help. :D). AS the Phanteks has two sided tempered glass panels, we had to be so careful of the cable management, even for the back side panel.

It would took us only 1 day if I had found that the CPU cooler came with pre-buit thermal paste, however we still add extra the next day.

After everything is assembled and built, I notice that the HDD making so muck click sound. As this is my first PC, i am not sure if this is normal or a problem.

did you move the PC once it was powered on? the HDD clicking isn't a good thing, that's generally a sign of it going out. Download crystal disk info for free and see if it shows any errors -- Just open it up and you'll see it. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT BACKED UP ASAP if you can. Let me know if you need any help

I am not sure but I think I might moved it once during being on. I even checked with my friend as he uses the same one ans he said it is normal but I still find it is not normal and annoying especially this high end HDD. I will try your software you recommended. Thanks!

Agreed, but since the price is not much different I prefer the 750 one just in case. And thanks!
