The build was mainly intended for gaming (League of Legends - low demanding, I know), internet use, work, and possibility of video rendering. This is my first computer build, so I wanted a balanced build that could potentially be upgraded in the future. Future upgrades may include a better CPU, more RAM, more storage, and a newer GPU. The case and cooling setup may be excessive for the setup and purpose, but I figured I wouldn't need to modify much to this foundation.
Pricing: CPU, mobo, and RAM were combo'd from Newegg. GPU and PSU were from my friend. Those five pieces alone saved a decent amount considering miners have boosted prices. The case and fans were pricier but for obvious reasons. Everything else was moderately priced.
Setup: The case was spacious and easier to maneuver around. Wiring was simple (pretty bare-bones and I may redo it). The M.2 was a little difficult to bolt down.
Aesthetics: Digging the case, fans, and liquid cooler setup. Minor RGB going on from the mobo, AIO, and GPU - slight regrets. Mobo and RAM look alright. I'm not loving the white accents on the mobo, but I was going more for function over form anyways. GPU is slanted lol.
Performance: TBD. I'm still tuning fan curves and looking into overclocking (or need of it). Benchmarks might be supplied later on.
Shout out to my friend, Kevin, that helped me assemble this. Hope you guys don't mind the low light phone pics. If you guys have any input or questions, please feel free to reach out.
