1st Build (Name in Progress)

Hello all,

Thanks for visiting my build. I have never built a pc but thanks to many YouTube videos and a good friend of mine, I decided to build a pc and stop gaming on a laptop. I think it’s a pretty decent build for my first time. I am open to suggestions and comments for future upgrades/switches.

A couple miscellaneous notes about the build. The GPU is the Arez Strix Vega 64 8Gb OC Edition. The mid tower is a touch too small to fit the 240x240x25 Enermax fans that came with the radiator so I instead used 2 Noctua NF-A12x15 fans on the CPU cooling radiator. If/when Noctua makes black versions of the slim fans, I will replace them.

I am aware of the CPU cooler’s negative reviews and longevity and will replace it with the EK-Velocity sTR4 D-RGB Nickel + Plexi water block when the time comes and run that with the current loop but may also need to upgrade the reservoir.
