Old Steven

Build Description

Old Steven is my first ever PC build. I put it together back in 2015 when I graduated high school as a gift. It all started when I picked up my first CPU from Microcenter. Old Steven is my daily driver and is still going strong to this day. I've spent hours a day on it, using it for schoolwork, browsing the web, watching videos, and playing games like LoL and Overwatch. I only upgraded it once with an SSD. Old Steven is simply trusty and reliable, but I'm looking to do a serious upgrade by the end of the year. I'll be keeping the case but will swap out most of the components to turn Old Steven into the beast it was meant to be. I'm definitely coming back to Microcenter to get this project started!

Favorite Feature

My favorite part of this build is the case. It's the Fractal Design Define S and it looks super sleek.
