After 6 years with my SONATA, it was time for an upgrade. Since Sonata was just a barebone PC with added components, getting a completely new PC was ideal. I was contemplating with myself for a long time if I really wanted to build a new PC, buy a high performance laptop, or simple give up on PC games that are graphically intense. I decided to build a compact size desktop because it was the cheaper option for a high performance PC while still keeping the small and cuteness I very much prefer.

This isn’t my first time working with a custom PC but it is my first time picking parts and building one all on my own. I honestly had no clue as to where to start with building. I know of the components, but as for all the other things like form factor, compatibility, voltage, etc. It was fun learning about it So my final decision was a Mini ITX form factor, Intel core i5, gtx 1070 build. All the other parts were picked to match the specs I wanted. Here’s a list of my final parts;

It took me about a week to get all my pieces and the build ended up being $1150. That’s $150 above my budget but… OH WELL!

It took me about 3 hours from unpacking until wired up and ready to boot. I think the biggest challenge of this build is getting the HDD & SSD wires in place. It felt like I had to force my way through a little to get it where I want. This is most definately a fault in the case. I question why it wasn’t designed with a little bit more flexibility on that. Anyways, after I finally finished building it all up, I turn it on and it booted right on the first go. I was so happy nothing went wrong with it!! I will call it a successful go 🙂 It performs quite well and the temps on all components sit right below 60C when I’m running games.

I decide to name her Reol because No Title – Reol was the first thing I played on it. I thought Reol would make a cool name too. Building PCs might me quite addicting. lol.

Something funky and mildly annoying is going on with The Roost in Hoshido. When I finally unlocked The Roost and set it up for construction, the next morning we have a new animal move in.. RIGHT IN FRONT OF IT…

Darn you Penelope

Welcome to Hoshido, Penelope?? I’m open for all animals to town, cute, ugly, mean, nice, whatever, but when you’re blocking thew view of my highly anticipated cafe, I really don’t know how to feel. I tried my best to ignore her every time I see her wondering around. I guess the fact that she wasn’t really an animal I’d care for to begin with helps.. lol. Finally after a month or so, Penelope pinged me and told me she’s ‘unfortunately’ moving out of Hoshido (oh,thank god). The Roost was finally free! …….. the view for a good few weeks or so..

Then today………

WHO ARE YOU? Are you Penelope’s Evil Twin? Wait, we can cut the Evil part out of that line cuz we already know Penelope is evil. >:( I should have been safe and put down patterns on the floor so no animals moves in right in front of the Cafe… When I finally get this evil animal out of Hoshido, that is going to be the first thing I do…
