Over the past year my job has been nice enough to let me work from home. The only problem was that my old Macbook Pro was on its last legs so it was time for an upgrade. It has been about 7 years since I've built a computer so I was going to have to do some research. With the help of the NeoGAF and HardOCP, I came up with the following build.
The only CON for me was that the case didn't allow for really good cable management towards the front intake but I am definitely a fan of the form factor.
I've yet to overclock but I'm hoping I can push it to 4.5.
