Build

PB&Js aged in a brown paper bag

by Wartrukk

Description

This is my first PC build. This is mainly gaming with some CAD and I’m the future 3Dprinting. I spent a a few weeks asking Reddit, friends, and watching YouTube trying to figure out things out. Hahahahaha. I’m pretty sure I was more lost after my research. I started off with a $2500 budget. That didn’t last. I ended up finding Obsidian 500D RGB SE case likes it a lot. I wasn’t planing on RGB for my build but I in braced it and ran with it apparently. My only issue is I messed with my fans. I have 3 fans for intake and my 2 240mm fans top mounted for exhaust on my AIO and 1 120mm fan on back. I’m going to replace the AIO to a 360mm front mounted AIO and put the 3 fans I had mounted on the front to be my top mounted exhaust fans. My i9900k is unstable at 4.8 reaching high 90-100 C with how my fans are set up now. I’m hoping this will fix this issue. Using the AIO with a fan and LED hub was a little confusing for me as well. I’m still not 100% I have them set up right. The Corsair icue does read the fan and I can control them but the Mobo only has the 1 fan that is plugged into the CPU fan. I was definitely nervous when I started building my PC but it was fun and I learned a lot. I still have no idea what I’m doing but I did manage to auto OC my GPU and CPU plus I only went a week before I realized that the bios limits RAM to 2100. I’ll upload pics when I get a chance.

Wheres my PB&J? All I got was a really cool PC. I can't eat a PC man, CAN'T EAT IT!

Were you eventually able to get all of your rear cables into the cable shroud that comes with the case? I wasn't able to my first go round and will be probably end up re-cabling everything in the next few weeks when I have time.
