Welcome to Project JAPC

 

Project JAPC (Just Another Personal Computer) is a build featuring components who have probably seen to do tasks that many other people in this world are doing. It is nothing special but I'm going to share my build anyway. Also expect to see more Comic Sans MS for title/heading fonts through out this build.

The parts list is full of trusted components that we see in plenty of builds and the system will run that operating system that everybody uses. But here it is for you to read. As of 28/07/15 at 13:08 GMT, everything has arrived apart from the motherboard.

The Build

 

The build process was pretty straight forward iwth there being no issues while building. However, I got lazy on two things, cable management and actually making a record of the build process. Luckily, I've just done the cable management so I have taken some images of the build for you all to see.

As you can see, the cable management isn't the greatest but it is far worse on the back side. The one thing I do like is the power supply and the great cables that EVGA ship with it. The only problem I had was fitting the cables into the small space I had between the drive cage at the bottom and the power supply itself. I managed to get it done in the end and I'm happy with it.

The back of the case is quite messy. I used two cable ties in the end to keep the 8-pin CPU header in place and the two 6+2 pin GPU cables in place. I could have used some more but I had done enough t keep everything flat(ish) against the back of the case and I was able to get the side panel on with any problems at all.

 

There are some more images you can look at here on Imgur if you really want to do that.
