So, normally I would've just edited the first thread I posted about this with some pics and details, but this was honestly so much of a story in and of itself that I decided to give it its own thread. This is also going to be kind of long-winded, so I'll have a TL;DR.

First off, this is the first build I've ever made or received. I have received parts every now and then, but they were often suboptimal for my needs. My father and I had been planning this for quite awhile so by this point I was quite excited. Especially when I found out the parts had come in before I had even gotten home from school(and he had hidden them >:C). Anyway, he got home and we started working on everything fairly quickly. We fiddled around with the case a bit as the fan positions were a little weird, but probably because there wasn't a lot of places you could install the 140mm fan it came with. Put the motherboard in, PSU, CPU, HDD, GPU, etc. He helped me with holding some of the parts in place, and he also did the majority of cable management- and damn did it look nice. Look at this shit.

So, after all was said and done, we went to power it on. I expected we were going to have to strip everything down again to fix something and make sure everything was plugged in, especially since this was a first for both of us, but nope, everything powered on and was functioning correctly on the first go. By this point, I was fucking jubilant out of my mind. I took it into my room and hooked up everything to prepare for downloading windows. I opened the BIOS and was blown away by how easy UEFI was to manage. By this point, my dad walks in after doing other stuff to check everything out, and I get up and give him a hug. I don't even know what to say, so after about two seconds, I tell him thanks and almost immediately start crying. After another twenty seconds, I sit down at the computer and start configuring the BIOS with tears still running down my face, and it takes me about two minutes to pull myself together. After everything was configured, I started installing Windows 8.1. The whole process had taken around 3-4 hours, and I realized I hadn't eaten dinner- or anything for that matter since lunch. I got up and prepared my victory meal: noodles.

TL;DR: Built a computer with my dad, got everything running, hugged him, bawled like a bitch for a few minutes, noodles.

And here's some additional photos for those who are interested:

Aaand that's pretty much it. Hope you enjoyed this thread as well as my terrible-looking face after slaving over this thing for the time I did. In all honesty, I cannot recall having been happier in my life. I'm glad to have shared this with you guys. Peace!

Looks good man, my wiring is much worse than that, so props to you. Also, don't make up such an absurd lie. The tissues are because you're "sick"? HAH.
