Description

Never built a computer before. I just used to take them apart when I was younger. Built mostly as an excuse to run cad for my new 3D printer. My mid 2012 Mac book Pro just didn't have the snappiness I wanted and is kinda unstable. I sometimes dabble with editing videos, making music and up until a couple days ago Xbox one gaming. Building went fairly well and it took around two and half hours of triple checking if every thing I was doing was right and making sure it was perfect. It booted right up but then the bios screen started flickering and cutting out then it went blank. I changed from the nice DP cable I bought to the DP cable that came with monitor and it seemed to fix the problem. Aside from the crazy headache/strain I get from the monitor, this computer has been the most awesome experience.

I would recommend having your rear fan be an exhaust so air flow is pulling across your motherboard.

Thanks for the heads up. It came that way and I figured it already was exhausting. I feel dumb that I didn't even check or realize.

Nice work! As someone else said, I think you might want to change your rear fan around so that it's exhausting air as you've got enough intakes there. Just built my first one too :)

Did all the fans work. Or may I say how many fan headers did that mobo have?

All work. I don't recall exactly how many headers there where but I think there is one left over. And I believe all three front where connected to the cases dedicated rgb controller which the connects to the mobo with one rgb and one fan cable doing all three. Mobo has dedicated cpu fan header.

Nice RGB rig. I'm sure LTT crew would be proud.

Update: Took a couple weeks but I'm now 100% comfortable with the curved monitor and now I hate flat panels.

You could try putting the cables from the PSU threw the top slot of your case. This will probably make the airflow better and it will look nicer.
