First build

This is an update to the build I did in August 2013. I felt it would be a good idea to upload with updated pics/cable management. The pics are in pretty poor quality for some reason, they were taken with a 12MP camera but something seems to be wrong.

Upgrades are as follows:

SSD - Purchased 2 days after Christmas, booting up and loading into my programs in 15s.

Keyboard - First mechanical keyboard, got it as a Christmas gift.

Headphones - Bought in January to replace my breaking Razer Megalodon.

Scorpio Blue HDD - Took this out of my sisters' old laptop to hold my anime collection

In hindsight, I really should have spent less on the gpu and picked up a 7870Ghz/XT. The 760 is great - surpassing my expectations but spending less on the gpu and picking up an intel cpu would give me performance in Guild Wars 2 that I cannot get with AMD

AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
CPU Clock Rate3.5GHz
CPU Temperature While Idle-
CPU Temperature Under Load50.0° C
EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB ACX Video Card

GPU Temperature While Idle25.0° C
GPU Temperature Under Load71.0° C

Totally agree with the case comment, if you can eek out $50 you can really class that thing up! You did the best you could with what you got, but nothing is better than a black painted interior and come cable mgmt options. Good luck!

yeah, im thinking of putting this into a 300r, and getting an ASUS M5A99FX/Noctua NH-D14, i wanna see how far I can push the chip on air

Love that Steins Gate background! +1 from me. Not the most perfect build but pretty decent overall.

good budget. Those parts deserve a better case tho.

your cables are to messy! but other than that its a good piece of work.

I was going to cut some holes in it and stick some rubber in as a mod to help with the cables, but this seems to be as good as it will get with all the stuff that I have inside there

Cables look great , considering the case.

i've seen some pretty nice cables in this one, I really don't know how they manage to hide it all!
