My First Build

by Matthew S Posted on: 1/3/2022

Build Description

My almost 10 year old MacBook Pro and computer that was passed down to me was not cutting it. It was time to finally build my own computer that could handle my regular work, photo/video editing, and some gaming. The GPU is old and broken so that is hopefully changing soon. I had the AIO flipped the other way but the pump block has to be oriented this way and the tubes were in the way of the GPU so i had to use this orientation.

Favorite Feature

I know this is a very basic build with popular components but I am proud to have a build look this nice for my first time building
