I use this computer mostly for gaming and watching videos. It runs very well, and looks amazing in my opinion. I have never built a computer before, and this went flawlessly, it posted first time. 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. As for the name, since I built this computer on Pi day, I named it Pi. Update 2/27/14: I got a new monitor that is 144 Hertz to play CS:GO more accurately. Update 5/9/14: New HDDs for more space, of course.

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

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!

Such a good looking case!

yrretmi [1 Build] 1 point 8 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.

Mark8008 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

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