My First Build (Light Gaming)

by RocketSimplicity

Description

Built this with many problems, mostly with the Be Quiet! Pure Rock Slim and how to mount it onto the AM4, eventually I figured it out. From then on it was mostly straight forward until I didn’t know where the SSD was meant to go, did some research and figured it out. Turned it on, but it didn’t work and with some help, discovered the Graphics Card was not in fully, as well as the RAM. Then we installed Windows 10 Pro and realised I didn’t have a DVD / CD disc drive. Bought a 20 buck one from PC case gear and realised I didn’t have a spare SATA. So I bought one and it is working!

What is it for? Light gaming. Modded KSP to BeamNG Drive to X-Plane 11. Also 3D animation.

For now I have come across one issue. Sometimes my screen would freeze around 15m on my computer, and then I would find My EVGA GTX 1060’s fan stuttering. Help would be appreciated.

If you have some money, buy it, and remember what I said in the first paragraph. What I forgot to buy. So remember that.

Thanks All!

Oh yeah, I didn’t buy the life chat headphones. Instead some Logitech G430s. And instead of the Thermaltake (which came in Spanish) a Maisone (is that how you spell it?) USB Gaming Keyboard (Where I live it’s called the Gamertech USB Keyboard)

Makes me want to hurt myself.

Here at Rocket simplicity, we pride ourselves to bad cable management, and not even a water cooler!

I despise the heatsinks on this motherboard however it is budget orientated

That Thermaltake is not your keyboard and also terrible cable management btw.

Yeah first build so I didn’t really care about cable management. Also, as I said, the Thermaltake is not my keyboard and, as I said in the last paragraph, replaced by a different one. :)
