My name is Jacky Mallet-Higley, “_TechPuppet_” on the forums, and I have been building PC’s for almost six years now. In the past couple years I have been more than just building PC’s, I have started to mod them as well. I started building PC’s when I met my husband Shane nearly seven years ago. I’ve always had an interest in computers but it wasn’t until I watched him build PC’s that I quickly became passionate about it and started building them myself. I’ve just recently finished my current build which I named, The Riddler, and have already started on another build, my daughter’s, and I am helping my husband work on and finish his as well.
Most of my parts were purchased from Newegg, Performance PC’s, and Frozen CPU and were chosen for both looks and performance. I like my builds to be aesthetically pleasing but how they run is just as important to me. I like my builds, quite and sleek, which is one of the reasons why I chose the NZXT H440 case for both my build and my daughter’s (hers is an all black H440, which we customized by taking two H440 cases and combined them together). I loved working with this case, everything fit just right. I was able to mount my reservoir in between the PSU shroud and the GPU so that it could be displayed nicely in front and the cable management was a breeze. There was enough room in the back where the hard drive cage was to place my pump neat and out of the way and it is small enough to sit on my executive desk like an art piece so that I’m able to see all sides of the airbrushed mural of the Riddler and Arkham city on my case.
