I enjoyed this build tremendously. Bought the parts during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so I saved a ton of money and got a bunch of cool perks like free games and rebates. It has been 15 years since I built my own computer. I've spent the last many years building and fixing others. Nothing has really changed since my days of computer repair. Made sure connections are tight, nothing grounded, POST successful, and go. Planning on doing a mild OC on this system. I had one issue with my graphics card not working, but I think for some reason my monitor needed a refresh. Enjoy.
