Seems awfully unbalanced.

Almost as much money spent on fans as on your CPU.

You could have knocked down your CPU cooler and upgraded to the fx 6300.

Why Windows 7 Ultimate?

Well, at least it's the first build I've seen with a Air 540 Arctic.

This. It's just too weird.

It's not a fresh new build.The components were migrated from a former build .The case is the only part that's new.

Great Build, whats your upgrade plan?

V3nauM [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

For an upgrade plan i would recommend pure SSD for the Operating System as well as everything else.However that would be very costly.So from a budget perspective I would upgrade the caviar blue 500gb to a Seagate Hybrid 1tb (SSHD) and the Corsair Gt 60gb to a Samsung 840 EVO 120gb or 250gb.It all depends on how much they can afford.The CPU I would upgrade as well to either an FX-6300 or a FX-8350.The memory I would go with a 16gb 1600mhz or 1866mhz kit.The GPU is very capable for what she uses it for.

This build is for everyday use with light gaming and photo editing.The client just liked the case (after seeing my silver edition - pictures of which will be up in a few days) and wanted to house her gear in a new case. I advised her to upgrade to this one for better air-flow. Again, this is NOT a brand new build. Thanks for all positive feedback.
