Description

My brother and i have been saving our money to build our first computer for the past 2 months and we had finally reached our goal, our first impressions is that it was very quiet, I didn't think it would be as quiet as it was, But never mind that my brother and I are very eager to hear reviews about our build and cant wait to hear the feedback, tell us anything you recommend, dislike, or like about our build, yet again cant wait to hear the feedback. :)

Pictures will be added shortly most likely today or tomorrow.

I really like the build however I have the most random question ever. What kind of desk are you using :) Otherwise great build

FIRESTAR525 submitter 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Its a Z-Line Designs Cryus Workstation desk. We got it because it was the only one we could afford at the time, but me and my brother like it so far :)

FIRESTAR525 submitter 1 Build 2 points 34 months ago

Personally my favorite graphics cards are made by ASUS and I trust their product.

Love the build, looks great! I am currently in the end of ordering my own parts for my first build. Do you guys like the CPU cooler? I was going to get a Noctua fan but your Corsair water cooler is cheaper then the fan I wanted. Just was wondering how you guys like it! Also, what games have you guys conquered with you GPU? Once again looks awesome!

Thank you and yes we love the CPU cooler it has been great for us and we have never had a problem with it, and as for games we have put it through very high and ultra settings for every game we have come across including No Mans Sky when it had first came out so we are very pleased with this build.

That thing would be overkill for any game released before it was built
