Mainly used for browsing the web and a lot of gaming. It actually just went through a lot of aesthetic changes. Mainly the case, the extension sleeved cables, the cooler, etc. Even went as far as painting the GPU shroud (horrible paint job btw)
My OCD just kept kicking the back of my head until this build is complete. I'm planning on adding some white LEDs as well. Will update at one point.
Edit: So I finally got the time to paint my PSU. Because of the Prices of AMD cards sky rocketing due to miners, I can't afford another 7970 or a 280x for crossfire. So I have no real reason to upgrade it. So instead of getting a new PSU, I just decided to remove the stickers and coat it white. There goes my warranty.
The paint job again is not spectacular but enough to keep me happy :P
I also ordered a Kraken G10 to liquid(hybrid?) cool my GPU since it's got heating problems when I try to over clock it. I also want it cause it looks great and I have a kraken x40 that sits around my closet doing nothing.
I will update this build as soon as I get it.
I might as well put it here since a few of my friends that saw my desk wondered where all my cables go. My desk comes with a compartment where I stuffed all my cables in. My surge protector is also inside there. So in the last image, you can only see the cable from the surge protector. I like my cable management hidden from plain sight :D
Also the horrors of Non-Modular PSU and all it's filth. I didn't wanna show you guys, but I figured why the hell not. Behold behind my motherboard. Another reason why I really love the Define R4, is the HUGE space behind the motherboard for cable management. Even with that much clutter, I can still close the panel with no issues :P
I also added white LEDs. I didn't want to make it too flashy, but I do want to see it when it's dark. So I added a bit of lighting.
Also, try to find where I stuck the Corsair CX600 sticker :P
And sorry about the images. It somehow rearranged itself on it's own.
Edit: You're probably wondering how I hear anything since I have no speakers. I added a picture with my headset. I prefer headsets over speakers most of the time. I have an HTPC to watch videos so I never really had the need for PC Speakers.
Last Edit: Kraken G10s are here. And damn do they work well. I haven't gone above 40 degrees. I haven't had the chance to mess with the GPU with overclocks since it's midterms week for me. But I can't wait to do it :D
The Kraken G10s did come with a defective 92mm fan. But since I plan to replace it anyways it's no big deal. I also have a kraken X40 sitting around from my last build.
I guess this is the final build for now :P
