First build!

Welp, this was my first build ever and I'm glad to say that the 6+ months (built this August 2017) that I spent researching and learning about PC building were worth it. The build process ran smoothly, except for the mounting of a Kraken x62 which took around 3 hours for my friend and I since, seemingly, sleep deprived engineering students are too dumb to mount a friggin' radiator; that or PC parts manufacturers (in this case NZXT and Phanteks) should settle and make a standard mounting system for all radiators and cases. After banging our heads for a couple hours we finally made it, though. Unfortunately the pump broke and that's why you see a CM Hyper 212 EVO, now. However, now I have the perfect excuse to go all out on a custom loop, yay!(?) Future plans also include a new keyboard build (shoutout to r/MK and Geekhack) to replace my crummy membrane board, a Dechanic Speed XXL pad and a Zowie Camade mouse bungee.

Headphones are Philips Fidelio X2 (love'em!) and the pad is a Zowie GS-R (very slow pad and extremely susceptible to humidity).
