Description

This is a gaming build for my friend's little sister. I built this for my friend as a favor. Funny story about how that came to be, actually.

My friend already has a gaming PC and his little sister wanted one as well to play video games. So he hit up his other friend, they picked out the parts together, his friend failed by buying a Motherboard with a Haswell socket, and then my friend asked me, so here I am. Originally, they bought an NZXT S340 Elite for this build (Why, you ask? I don't even know, the PC goes under her desk anyways.), but they shattered (yep.) the side panel window and there wasn't a warranty. After that mishap, and the Haswell MoBo incident, he shot me a message asking what case he should get, I suggested the Source 220, and tah-dah. He asked for my help to build this. I came over to his house and built the PC in two hours, though installing Windows and drivers for the MoBo and GPU took another hour.

This marks the fifth PC I've built and the fastest one at that. Not really much else to say, seeing as there wasn't any careful planning or consulting beforehand like I had with my other builds, it was just a quick favor and I got paid in food afterwards.

Thanks for reading.

These were actually stock LED fans that came pre-installed with the case. I guess if you want something similar just look up NZXT fans with LEDs in them.

Where did you get the 6402p from?

I didn't pick the parts. Someone else did. I was just asked to build it. Trust me, I would've told him to get a 6500.

Lol for 10$ it's worth it unless you are on a super tight budget like I am when buying hardware

Why the 6402p? the 6500 for the same price is faster? Is there reason behind this?

I wasn't the one who picked out the parts. The guy who did had no idea what he was doing. I just came over and built it because the friend he originally asked did a ton of things wrong.

That sucks, At-least now he knows who to call for his next build!

A fellow pc builder who helps out friends! You should charge them 40-50 for build cost, what I do is buy them the parts and build it and make about 50 bucks while doing it :)

Currently none of us have jobs and most of the friends who I build for get their money from their parents. I do this thing where if they can't pay me with money, I take payment in food. I've gotten a couple visits to McDonald's and Carl's Jr, so that's all in good fun. If you look at another build I did for a teacher (Cubick), I actually got paid $120 for it.
