    After a brief discussion with my family, I've decided to name my computer Seasons!

    Amazing looking computer! I love computers so much, and have one myself! I never built one though— I didn’t think it was possible to.

    Also, what’s that box with wires next to your computer?

    As an update:

    Due to horrible temps, I will be purchasing the be quiet! Dark rock 4 BK021 as a CPU cooler.
    My main purchase for a CPU cooler was the Coolermaster LC240 which didn’t seem to have a huge affect on my temps. I switched to the stock cooler which came with the 2700x which is the wraith prism. The prism is actually a very decent cooler. But, with the Dark rock 4 I can get a decent amount of lowered temps and increased frames.

    Will post updates!

    Checkpoint #3! (also a double post will merge later)

    I received the Dark Rock 4 in mail today! I was excited up until the point I realized it doesn’t come with an AM4 chipset backplate. I should have researched it earlier and it’s my fault for being so clumsy. In worse news, I took off my other cooler before realizing there was no AM4 backplate for the new cooler. This means I can not play on my PC until my backplate comes because I don’t have enough thermal paste.

    Once I receive my backplate, I will install it and post updates on the temps.
