MY FIRST PC BUILD!

by JOC14716

Description

This is my first Pc build and didn't want to spend over £750 as I've been saving up a while to buy this (I'm only 12). I chose the parts due good performance but reasonably cheap prices. I also wanted it to be an RGB heaven as you can probably tell.

Due to my motherboard arriving dead I decided to switch from the Asrock to an MSI b450 instead. I have also not been able to install the 2 additional corsair fans as I didn't know that I needed specific splitters and hubs to be able to use them. I will shortly be adding these into my build. I will also be adding the Corsair lighing node pro into my build with the LED strips which are included with it.

I have not come round to benchmarking it and will be doing that soon. But otherwise I'm loving my Pc and can't wait to install the 2 extra fans!

For your first build the cable management looks pretty darn good

If you get a chance to swap or sell the 4 sticks for 2x8GB, you might see a modest improvement depending on what you're doing. I wouldn't put more than maybe £10 or so into the deal though. The Ryzen memory controller is dual channel and is happiest running two sticks, one per channel.

Nice work with the build.

I’ll see if I can do that but might try and get a swap or something like that. Though I’m not going to do that for a bit as I need get a bit more money yet! Thanks tho
