Description

This is my gaming/internet machine. The Silverstone case made this build so easy and satisfying. I really liked the clean look of the Corsair H60 cooler which really made the cable management shine. This was also my first SSD rig and has completely blown me away. Loading times are minimal and startup/shutdown are hardly noticeable. The Sapphire HD7950 lets me run Skyrim on max settings with about 75 mods running as well. It's a beautiful machine and worth every penny.

Interesting case...

It's expensive too, I believe it is $200. Although, all silverstone cases are expensive. Though, this case has remarkable build quality, air-cooling potential, good cable-management. Personally, I also like the subtle design choices of many silverstone cases as they aren't too busy and still provide a side window. So I think if a budget allows it, then it is well worth it.

Reminds of the Sliverstone's Raven.

Unlocked, last generation processor, with a locked Mobo? I don't get it. Plus, you got a aftermarket cooler

Really? I always thought the Z68 was unlocked lol

But the 2500k could have been cheaper than the 2500 at the time.

Z68 is unlocked.. all Z boards are unlocked..

SO I understand that with intel CPU's adding the K suffix when its unlocked, but how can you tell if the mobo is unlocked?

Z68 chip set supports CPUs with unlocked multipliers.. its exactly the same with the Z77...

I see... you like... periods...

for example Z77 is unlocked, while the H77 is locked

Thanks for the answer, that's what I though. I guess Hydro didn't know what he was talking about.

Maybe he's not looking to overclock and just to keep it nice and cool.

I think keeping it cool was his goal, he has a crap-load of fans at the bottom.
