Description

I use this computer mostly for gaming and watching videos. It runs very well, and looks amazing. I have never built a computer before, and it went flawlessly. As for the name, since I built this computer on Pi day, I named it Pi.
Update 5/9/13: I added a Corsair H100i because I wanted to overclock my CPU to 5.0 GHz.
Update 5/12/13: Overclocking went well, still stable at 5.0 GHz, running at 48-50 Celsius. I installed a better PSU so I can have another HDD and do better cable management. I also bought a new mechanical keyboard.
Update 2/27/14: I got a new monitor that is 144 Hertz to play CS:GO more accurately.
Update 4/5/14: Bought some ATH-M50's they're the best headphones I own.
Update 5/9/14: New HDDs for more space, of course. And some MIE2i's.
Update 6/28/14: New Headphones - Corsair Vengeance 2100's seems like I didn't get a lemon. (M50's are still best.)
Update 10/31/14: Added a SSD for faster boot up times, and everyone told me to get one, and man were they right!
Update 11/4/14: RAIDed my 2 1TB WD Blues together in RAID 0 for recording at 60fps

The prices are so high because that's what I paid for them at the time.

Nah, I think it was just the rounding.

How's that Mad Catz ? I always made fun of that thing because of its looks. :)

It is awesome, it's really comfortable and has great customization features, plus people are like "wtf is that." when they first see it.

What's that sitting on your mouse pad? My god, it's a Transformer!

LOL

Nice choice on parts, should consider an SSD for a future upgrade

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 2 points 13 months ago

You said it. I agree get a SSD. You won't regret it. crazy looking mouse.

 
 
ravagex 3 points 13 months ago

That mouse makes me think a decepticon will transform and destroy the computer

Such a good looking case!

 
 
yrretmi [1 Build] 2 points 13 months ago

Nice build. I was slightly mislead by the title though. Was excited to think someone incorporated a Raspberry Pi into their build process.

did the ram work fine with the mobo?

 
 
Mark8008 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

Sorry for the very late response, but yes the RAM did work.

 
 
Xyit 1 point 4 months ago

Awesome I purchased in my build and my RAM is working fine also, just heard some issues about this model.

 
 
Mark8008 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 4 months ago

Nice, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Mark8008 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

They are the stock fans that came with the case and H100i

I'm still going to upvote it but c'mon man, the case badge? Otherwise a beautiful build.
