I finally built the PC of my dreams!

I finally built the PC of my dreams!

You read that title right. It is finally over. Thanks to Alien Worlds I was able to make enough money to actually purchase all my PC parts to build my very own Gaming / Video editing PC.

If you know how to Build a PC then you can skip reading all my steps and just take a look at my pictures! If you have never built one and want to know how to build one then follow along.

 

Step 1: Get some of the parts in the mail

Step 2: Receive more parts in the mail and patiently wait for the rest!

Step 3: Receive the last parts in the mail and start building!

Step 4: Take the motherboard out and put it on the motherboard box.

Step 5: I installed the SSD next. What I have may not look familiar to a normal Hard Drive or SSD and that is because these new ones are called M.2 drives. They are insanely fast and super cool.

There is a heatsink you need to take off first by 2 screws then you can put you M.2 in.

Step 6: Install the CPU. Make sure you line it up. It only goes 1 way.

Step 7: Cautiously set it in place even though you know it's right it is still nerve racking.

Step 8: Install the RAM. I had 4 sticks.

Step 9: Take a look at how cool it looks

Step 10: 

I didn't do a good job documenting this with pictures but you need to install your CPU Fan cooler or Liquid Cooler. I went with a Liquid Cooler. Connect all the cables where they go. And connect the power supply. I turned it on to make sure it would POST.

Step 11: Take a look back at my Computer and realize that the Radiator didn't fit with 2 fans at the top.. The second fan hits the RAM..

Step 12: Take almost everything out and reposition it all so it fits. It does bug me the case came with black fans and my IO cooler came with White but whatever.
