Description

Using pcpartpicker was great because it kept me organized :)

Unfortunately, it seems like my chip is terrible at overclocking. Failed numerous stability tests. So for now, I will keep it at stock for stability since I'm starting school. At stock, temps are great! Considering ambient temp is ~27 Celsius

I got the 4770k through a friend, hence the super low price. All the other parts, I went bargain hunting for 3 months. It was annoying, but worth it! Some parts, I purchased as a combo, and then sold the combo item on Ebay. (gtx 760, mobo)

I'd say this is a very good build. Also those cables are glorious

Amazing build. I love it.

Great build. Lots of excellent choices and only $1100. Nice!

You should be able to get some overclock out of the i7. Maybe the cooler isn't very good or you just got to be more patient. Good luck and don't give up on overclocking, even if it's a mild overclock.

That cooler is awesome (I have it in my build), Haswell just doesn't OC like Ivy Bridge.

Great build, don't forget to download MSI afterburner for your videocard to squeeze all the juice out of that little beast. +1

How's that Zalman fan for sound?
I see you replaced the stock front fan.

My next build will have the same case and I was planning on putting both of the white stock fans up front and using 3 of that Zalman blue fan you got for the rear and two on top.
