First build and it was a wonderful experience putting it together myself. No issues and posted first boot. Runs games admirably and with its SSD, it flies.
There's definitely a reason why the R4 is such a cookie cutter case. It's spacious enough for all but the most high end of systems and cable management was really a treat when getting everything to look clean. The best part about the case is the sound dampening. Playing Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3 maxed gets the 780 fans spinning and it sounds nothing more than a very soft hum.
In the future, I plan on adding a storage drive, a closed-loop CPU cooler, and sleeved cables to match the black and gold color scheme.
Overall, I would absolutely recommend this build to anyone looking into building a first rig, and depending on your needs, you can either downgrade or upgrade the GPU to something more suitable or cost-effective.
