    Hello hello. After my GFX Card died on my last month (tbh my comp is 6 years old anyway), I figured it was about time to upgrade. So after some research, I went out and bought my parts this weekend, then I cried over how much my bank account hurt (not really but omg mining makes prices suck!).

    I'm 95% there in terms of the build. I've transferred over my programs, files, etc. I haven't sat down and fixed my cable management though, so it still looks like a child put it together haha. Although, after this experience, I dunno that I want to build a computer again. Wasn't really fun / up my alley.

    Well, without further ado, here's the specs and a couple photos. Enjoy and see y'all in game!

    Specs:
    - Intel i7-8700k
    - EVGA GTX 1080 FTW 8GDDR5X
    - Corsair Vengeance RGB RAM - 16GB @ 3466MHz
    - ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming Mobo
    - Corsair H150I AIO Cooler w/ (3) Corsair LL120 Fans Mounted on Rad
    - EVGA Supernova G2 850W PSU
    - Boot Drive: Samsung 860 EVO 500GB
    - Secondary Drive: WD Black 4TB HDD
    - (3) Corsair LL140 Fans

    To be fair I don't think most people bother

    Most of us just cram our wires into some spot that isn't in the way of anything. As long as wires aren't hitting fans or sitting on something that can get really hot its not an issue unless you have so many wires its somehow blocking off significant air flow.
