Thanks for the tour of your new PC.

In my opinion the more fans in a PC the better,
air flow in a computer is very important.

When I built my PC I installed 7 fans to ensure
that my 3 high capacity hard drives would not
become too heated during operation.

Good luck with the new unit.

Case Fans
Front: 120mm x2, or 140mm x1 (I mounted x2 120mm)
Top: 120mm x2
Rear: 120mm x1
Side: 120mm x2
Bottom: 120mm x1 (not mounted)
HDD Cage: 120mm x1
Heatsink/CPU Cooler: 92mm x2 (push-pull configuration)


Not counting the fan in the PSU,
there are a total of 10 cooling fans.

Thanks you guys.

I didn't go into any of the specs of the computer in the video.
I was showing the photos I took during the build,
with a little narration about what was in each photo.
The cpu I chose,
(due to budget constraints) is the Intel Core i5 6600K.

Not rich.
Got a few gift cards for Christmas that I used.
Saved every nickle and dime I could get my hands on.
Use the small earnings from sales of my art work on DeviantArt.
Made money creating a few logos for some clients of mine.
Amazon Prime gave me a $50 gift card,
along with free shipping.
Got most if not all the parts on sale.

The last computer I bought was an old refurbished Dell Optiplex 745.
I got for $200.

The new computer look really nice and has much more pep then the old Dell.
