Cable management could be better, but I'll work on it later.
My first build wasn't terribly slow, but it was definitely not the fastest. I wanted to upgrade to something that would play anything at 1080p60 for a good long while. The case, SSD, and power supply were from the original build- I have since replaced everything but the SSD.
Solid CPU for the price (I paid $150). Included cooler has no problems keeping this thing cool, even when bumped up to 3.7 while running Prime95. This thing has no problems running any games I play.
Basic motherboard. Seems to work just fine. Got it for the price, B350, and the 4 RAM slots.
Solid kit of RAM from a reputable manufacturer.
Bought used off of eBay for $250. You're not going to have it running as cool as an open-air card, but with a slightly aggressive fan curve set, I haven't had it go much beyond 75 C. And of course, it looks really nice as well.
