The HasselHOF

Hello There

This was and still is my first build, which didn't go flawlessly as you can expect. I built this back in 2015 and not much has changed over the years apart from 1 fan and peripherals.

If I was to build it today I would do a number of things differently, for instance:
I definitely wouldn't go for such a big case.
I definitely would spend longer on cable management than I did.
I would go for a more mainstream GPU as I now only have 1 fan working out of 3, which ain't great.
Probably wouldn't bother with the fan controller.
I would've taken my time more.

The pictures are from when I first built it not current ones.

Looking to upgrade to an RTX 2060 when I can afford to as the GPU fans are a problem at the moment. After that I'll look at upgrading the CPU and mobo when I feel I need to.
