First PC build solo.

Build Description

This PC was build for gaming during covid-19 crisis. Stay home and stay healthy. The standard HD will be removed and replaced with additional SSD as my steam account has over 100 games now. The PC temperatures are OK. Battlefield 5 in Ultra CPU max 72C - GPU 68C. Very happy with my build, and very happy with Micro-center customer service.

If this is your first build, congratulations. First step to greatness :-)
Part selection can be made on Microcenters PC builder. Print it out and provide it to the store employee that will be helping with part picking. Ask the employee questions in regards your build if you have, and ask for possible PC part advise.

Assemble parts and build it.
Easy steps, baby steps no rush.

Motherboard, CPU, air cooler and ram. AIO can be mounted later.
Check youtube and forums if you have questions or you are not sure how to.
Stick it in to the case carefully, no need worry about cables yet.
It was easier for to install some cables now and run the in the back before power supply install.
Yes the cables were that hardest part of the PC build for me. The little cables to the led and on/off, but few youtube guides and it was done correctly.
Cable management in the back is recommended. Makes it look nice and easier to work on in the future.
The GPU install is easy, and extra fans if needed.

Hope you will reach POST screen.
If not, make sure your GPU monitor cable is connected to the right port, and the power supply is ON!!!

Game on !!!!

Favorite Feature

The Corsair LL fans are beautiful. Light up entire room with dancing light :-)
