Building a PC is one of the best feelings in the world. It's not all that difficult to do but it's a lot of fun. When I put together my first PC and got ready for the initial boot, the nerves really start to kick in haha. I pressed the button and nothing happened, everything was plugged in correctly, I just forgot to flip the psu on lmao. Glad your build went smoothly and I hope she treats you well.

Yeah mate I agree, it's SO satisfying. I just hate that feeling at the back of your mind the whole time. The "will it boot or nah" doubts in your head.
I've never once let it affect me when building PC's for friends or family but when it's your own and you want to have it up and running as soon as possible, christ it's nerve wracking LMAO.

Oh she is already! temps are great, silent, case is sleek, not too much RGB going on. Frame rates are great, even at 1440p maxed out on Modern Warfare (only running a 2060 super which isn't the best choice for 1440p 144hz, depending on the game)

I just need to practice games now! Not played CSGO for over 2 years and it shows! I'm SO bad.
