TL;DR: Building a computer is nerve-wracking, easier than it looks, super fulfilling when it's done, and Newegg rebates aren't all they're cracked up to be (see what I did there???)
I came into this build with three things in mind: I didn't want to overclock, wanted good graphics, and had to stay under $1000. I managed to get the OC version of my graphics card, so I guess I didn't accomplish all three of my goals, but I won't complain.
Overall, I learned some really important things about building computers throughout the process. 1) Newegg rebates take literally forever. I waited two full months before I got the rebate. At least I got it, I guess. 2) White builds are for people who know what they're doing and have money. It was actually pretty hard for me to find cheap white parts, like the graphics card and RAM. 3) Sometimes waiting is better. If I had waited like five hours my baby would've been born on new year's day. :(
Planned upgrades, if my wallet ever recovers: WiFi/Bluetooth card, 120Gb SSD to run windows, Higher wattage power supply, RGB fans?
Not listed (cause I'm lazy): Steelseries Rival mouse, Steelseries Apex keyboard, Skullcandy Slayr headset, Asus VG248QE monitor
Feel free to leave me some comments, questions, or criticism (but not too harsh)
WARNING: This RAM has colored LEDs, yes, but they are not constant, they breathe. And, if you buy two or more, like me, you'll notice that they do not breathe in unison. It still looks good in my opinion, as it adds some movement, but some people might not like that.
Otherwise, its RAM. Good for B150M boards that throttle memory at 2133.
This is a good case for cheap white builds, but has some quirks. Pros: It seems unnaturally large. Take a look at my build to see how much room is in there. Cable management is pretty ok, pretty easy to route everything behind the back panel
Cons: Overall build quality is not great. The PSU mounting tabs did not fully line up, I had to bend one back to make room for the plug. The 3.5"hard drive bays are just a touch too small, bending way out of place when you mount one. It still fits in the rack ,but is a little sketchy. The PCI covers need to be snapped off to make room for a graphics card, leaving paint chips inside the case if you're not careful.
I do recommend it if you want a cheap, good looking case, but you do get what you pay for.
