Default [BUILD LOG] Lighthouse 2018

My wish is to build a wonderful computer for summer lan events. The theme is white and RGB.

I picked up parts from several online retailers. Case directly from the store, all other parts from online. The order went to the week and the parts arrived.

I'll add pictures and experiences later.

On Friday I built a new PC in five hours. There were no impossible obstacles, some had to stop thinking about it. Easier than 25 years ago, but still could simplify things.

Color coded connectors. It would be good to plug fans in series (less cables). There should be more openings than just one (570x) on the PSU cover. All screws with only one size tool (cross head).

Otherwise, yes, great performance from Corsair. I'm satisfied. :)

Say hello to my new friend, The Lighthouse 2018. I have installed the software throughout the weekend and is getting ready.

I wrote an article on "When a console player built a computer" (in finnish). Computers and gaming consoles have approached each other. Building a computer is not an impossible idea, much easier than in the 1990's.

Thanks for the tips! I have not overclocked. I have been a console player for 20 years and now back to the roots. :)

I bring here new results when overclocking is done.

Hello,

What's the solution when I want to bring the black USB cable shown in the picture through the PSU box slot to the motherboard? Is the cable available from the market? The best would have a 90 degree turn, but CableMods it was in the "wrong" direction...

Cable management is hidden behind this white side panel (from Coldzero).

Problem solved: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Now, the 570X own USB cable is hidden and this cable goes to the motherboard.

Nicely done!

You can also try tugging the 24-pin cable a bit further back so those unruly part passed the combs won't show in the front. (:

Very pretty build! Was worried it'd be close to every-other-rgb-pc-out-there-that-doesn't-even-have-any-special-features but this came out great!

Computer make-up continues. This time tape placed on the side panel.
