Build Description

Gaming build from Mid-2016. I have since done lots of different changes, from the gpu, ram, storage, and recently now cpu but this was my first full custom build.

Favorite Feature

The H105 on the R9 390, while it wasn't cheap and I could have spent the money better like towards a better gpu it still was really cool to get a water-cooled gpu without costing a huge amount of money. The card ran great though temps were really cool and noise was almost none existent.
