Daughter's Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm building my anime-loving daughter her first desktop PC for her birthday October 10th. I'll be giving her my 2080 and one of my two x570 boards. (I had to buy two to troubleshoot multiple issues I was experiencing)

All I've done so far is sticker bomb her case and order her some Cooler Master Sickle Flow 120 fans. Even the sticker bombing isn't complete but here are the first images.

I would love that case I also like anime and that may be a future project tbh, there isn't really much tips I can give you maybe custom PSU cables white to match the case


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

Very cute, good dad. Give her some white PSU cables like Kanna said. I'd also go for some rainbow RGBling in this particular instance since the case looks like a unicorn pissed on it. Some etching of her favourite anime on the tempered glass would go a long way as well.

Cool case but sickle flow fans suck tbh. Couldn't you get a triple pack of corsair or something not ancient? :)

I'm not the builder of this PC, I was just thinking that lights was required because, sickle flow.

Finished applying the stickers and now we are spraying it with a UV resistant clear coat. I realize the fans aren't the best but they're white and they're RGB. It'll do the job for her first PC.

Thanks for appreciating it. It goes against what I typically build but I realize what I like isn't what she's into. I'll keep you all updated
