Default Finished my new build.

I spent all day sunday putting together my first build. Things went very smooth. There were a few things I was unsure about being unexperienced, but figured them out. Never again will I buy a fully assembled computer. I had a blast and learned a lot of information.

I still want to try and get lower CPU temps. Normal load temps run between 36-38 deg C, and higher loads as high as 45 Deg. C so far.

Good job. I hoping to build mine this weekend . All my parts are on the way. Are you using the stock cpu cooler? If not you could upgrade that to something more substantial. Lets see some pics and benchies of this new build.
