My first PC build! I had done a little bit of upgrading to my previous system, but I had never built something from the ground up. After 5 years of working and gaming on an i7-4790 (yes, not the 4790k lol), a GTX 980ti, and a 5200RPM HDD, I figured I was in need of an upgrade.
Building it was pretty straightforward (I had plenty of time to research how to build thanks to COVID-19 lmao). Everything worked out of the box, and doing an out of case first boot eased my mind over the course of the final assembly. During said final assembly, I decided to plug the front fans directly into the AIO as opposed to NZXT's smart hub, which was included with the H510 Elite, mainly because I'd read about NZXT Cam software's inconsistent CPU temp readings.
Have yet to really delve into overclocking of any kind, but I'll be testing those waters in the coming days.
I'll be picking up an adapter so that I can actually use the case's front USB-C port (one of the few things I overlooked when selecting the motherboard and case), as well as some sleeved cables, and a GPU support bracket as I've noticed some sag.
