I was feeling so blue with my old laptop that could hardly boot (Acer E1-571G), and I went a bit overboard with my new computer. Also the mining craze was growing and I was growing interested too. The only reason I do not have the coolest CPU back then (TR 1950X) is because my local store (PC Garage) only had the 1920X available.
Now I have a lot of processing power sitting quietly in my little room, and I wish I had something interesting to do with it. A couple of times a month I enjoy 140 FPS in World of Warcraft at 1440p, but I am not really playing any more. I am more interested in OpenCL really.
I have an issue with the air cooler NH-U14S from Noctua, which I have because the matching liquid cooler at the time, Enermax LiqTech TR4 280mm, had a (desing) problem and arrived leaking in the package, twice !
RGB was interesting for me, but after spending so long carefully picking all the parts, I could spend no more time on it, so now my RGB just looks random. About my cable management ... you will have to excuse me, it was my first build, and now I have to take it apart if I want to fix the cabling. And I not sure I can fix it really.
I have to say this rig made me an AMD fan. I mean I always had a preference for AMD because of Intel's ugly practices and prices (same for nvidia), but building my computer now made me an enthusiast.
