This was pretty easy to build considering it was my first PC build.

You have cable management locations you seem to have avoided using?

What do you mean by that? This was my first ever build so I thought it was only around the back there

Your most obvious yellow wire looks like it could have been put with the main power, but I'm not sure. At a second glance it may be too short.

Yeah it is the original wire from the psu and I could have it run over the GPU but thinking it could maybe get caught in a fan but I moved the routing for it now

Would there be no viable route in the back of the case? At least then, it would be out the way :tongue:

try to run your yellow cord like how i've drawn it. you can then use a bunch of cable ties and some electrical tape to hold them in place. i'm no cable master but that's how i would do it.

How are you finding the computers performance?

Have you tried to play any games with it yet?

Haven't tried to many games but it handles well on CSGO around 140ish FPS and plays NFS Undercover fine on high w/ Enhanced GFX. Need to get more games to try but other than that the computer performs fine. Used it for editing and it's quick and handles it.
