Hello there.

I'm a 16-year-old who loves to build computers. I've built three, and posted one so far. I like to think I have a reasonable sense of how to choose parts for people, so I hang around the build guides and help those poor souls who still can't find their way to the forums (I get the sense that there's more people on the forums, so I wouldn't really add anything there).

Some things about me:

  • I built with the Corsair CX series twice, and am relieved to find out that my aversion to them was slightly unwarranted.

  • I do a lot of music, including composition. I need a new laptop (and money for one) that suits my needs.

  • My dream laptop is an XPS 12.

  • I'm obsessed with SFF PCs even though I'm terrible at cable management.

  • When I bought my first PC, one of the reps at Microcenter saved me from the Kingston V300.

  • I play TF2, SMITE, and some other multiplayer games. My favorite games of all time are Portal 2 and everything Supergiant Studios makes.
