Description

My first PC and Gaming build. Simple as that. Got the Processor for free. Also added the SSD after Pictures. I got the HDD for $20. Liquid Cooling was Overkill, especially with push-pull configuration, but looked nice, and build was originally going to have an Overclock-able CPU (i3-8350K). 8GB RAM might be too little for some but I never go over 50% Usage so whatever. Also RAM is running at 2778 MHz. I got the GPU on Ebay for $100 which helped decrease costs as well.

This is a really nice build! But how was your experience with used parts?

Can I ask why you went with liquid cooling for the cpu? From my understanding the stock cooler for i3-8100 is pretty adequate, especially since it cant be overclocked. Asking because I just ordered one lol :)

I might be doing this same thing with the same cooler. I'm just gonna do it because I'll probably upgrade to an 8600k in the future. And if not for that reason, most computers look better with a liquid cooler. So it just depends on what you want to do.

May I ask how you made the cables look neat? I just built in this case and cables are everywhere.
