First Build + First Gaming PC!

this is my very first build and my very first gaming computer! i've been using laptops for almost my whole life, and have been interested in a gaming pc for more than 5 years, so i was looking for a nice gaming laptop. one of my friends told me that i could build a pc for much cheaper, so i took her advice! the original budget i had for a gaming laptop was about 2000 dollars, and i wanted this build to have the same budget. overall i got something with better specs, and more customized, so i'm super happy w it :]

this build is about half a year old at this point, but i'm still happy with it. wish i had went with a gtx 1080/1080 ti, but it's still a great pc!

i have some plans to make my build look a little nicer in the future. first off i reeeeaaally wanna fix the cable management in the front of the case. there are so many cables that i could've hidden better. blue is my favorite color so i also definitely want some individually sleeved blue extensions for my 24-pin and my pcie cables! maybe eps too.
i also either want to replace the hd120 fans with ll120s, or just get the lighting node pro for the hd120s. maybe some rgb fans for my radiator too!
