This is the first PC I have ever built for myself (Have built a few for other people before) and my current one was really starting to age so I decided to take the plunge and do everything I have wanted to do with a build which was within my budget.
Initial building was not a problem and I had the system up and running fairly quickly once all the essentials finally arrived, watercooling was more complicated as it was my first time dabbling in it, had some issues with the tubing kinking but fixed that with more connectors.... overall a good learning experience and a nice result.
I am pretty satisfied with it, I can play all my games at max settings and can do rendering dirt fast, I won't deny that the tubing could look better, but that is something I will probably fix when I add my second GPU, more hard drives, LED lights, new monitor.... you get the idea.
I ain't really had time to play around with overclocking but the motherboard auto overclocked the CPU to 4.5 GHz and I have run the GPU at 1100 MHz but it really didn't make much of a difference in 3DMark so I just left the GPU at stock... my temps usually around low 30s no matter what I seem to be doing.
Anyway enough of me rambling on, hope you like what you see, and feel free to check my flickr for even more photos.
