Used mainly for gaming and some engineering related work.
FX 8350 clocked at 4.62 GHz on 1.37V. I'm looking to go higher with it, but it's healthy for now and dominating everything I need, so I'm not pushing it too hard yet.
H100i is a great cooler. really low temps
Crosshair V Formula-z is expensive, but when I saw it I feel in love and splurged. Oh well, it's aesthetically pleasing and pretty much the best AMD board around.
ASUS GTX 770 looks awesome and is fantastic, plows through all my games (BF4, Crysis 3, other random games), I plan on adding another.
Simple SSD for OS boot and some important applications.
NZXT Phantom 530 has so much room. Great Airflow, included fans are awesome, thumb screws made everything easy, and in my opinion it looks awesome. Also very high build quality.
power supply is more than enough for what I currently run, and semi-modular so it worked out pretty well
Basic monitor, I don't need anything too fancy and I want to add a few more without absolutely breaking the bank. Will eventually add at least one more as they look sleak and I need more than one for my computer work
Logitech G500s mouse is just what I need for most of my tasks.
SteelSeries APEX is great, super customizable, not mechanical but I don't mind that.
