You get everything ready to go, fire it all up, go to install windows, and then have to power back down because your dumb ass forgot to actually plug the power cable into the SSD despite having to specifically add the cable into the build due to having a modular PSU.

ps. I love run on sentences.

pps and root beer.

ppps. This is my third complete build and seventh if you count upgrades, things like this shouldn't be happening anymore.

I've built countless rigs for friends, family and myself over the years, but it always seems like I forget to plug something in everytime.

I just built a i5 4670k with 8g ram, a 120 GB ssd, MSI gtx 770, in a 304 fractal. The HDD I bought was DIA. I went to staples and paid way more than I should just because I didn't Want to wait for the fix.

My apologies for the potato filter:

i5 3570k
8GB Crucial Ballistix
Sapphire R 280x
Toshiba Q Series 256GB SSD
Asrock Extreme4-M
Hyper 212 Evo
Seasonic SSR-650RM

All in a Fractal Arc-Mini

The case wasn't as small as I was expecting, even though I had the measurements, but that's a good thing. For 50 bucks, I don't think that there is a better option on the market. My only gripe is that the backplate cutout isn't actually big enough to access all four points, so I had to remove the motherboard after screwing it in, but that could just be specific to my motherboard. I didn't really care enough to go with haswell and the deals that were available to me at the time worked out wonderfully for that purpose. I still have just enough room to crossfire if one 280x isn't enough for me, but until I make the jump to 1440p, I doubt that will be necessary. Overall, it's just a solid upper mid range build that doesn't break the bank imo.

Yeah, there are always little things like that. I do not really mind though, I am always excited when I have new hardware to play with.

It has been a while since I did a whole build though, I tend to just swap things out here and there until I have an entirely new build.

I just bought a motherboard , CPU and SSD. Before I went to install windows, I wanted to unplug the sata cable from my old hard drive. After turning the PC back on I realized I had just unplugged my optical drive lol.

I am surprised the Hyper 212 evo fit without issues. I had to go with the TX3 instead on micro atx build I did. I also just prefer going with something that does not use a backplate if the case does not expose the back of the motherboard enough for you to replace/reseat the cooler.

Nice setup
