I took my computer apart to clean the case, cooler block, and rewire it now that I know what I'm doing, and decided to take pics.
I mostly use it for gaming, such as BF3, PS2, TF2, and others. It will run BF3 very nicely, with the overall bottleneck being the CPU (which is understood). I had a 7750, and got the 650ti boost for about 115 on sale, so it was a good purchase.
The upgrade to an SSD was easy, fast, and makes the computer literally 10x as fast, much faster than I expected. Using Windows 8.1, I can go from power to desktop in about 20 seconds, and an additional 10 for all the programs to start up. I have to say Windows 8.1 is not that bad, its just the start menu that is different for me. It's currently set to show the apps installed when pressed, I could care less about widgets.
Cable management in this case is, well, tight. It took 2 people to get the back cover on because there was no space. Actually routing cables was not bad, only the top corner where the motherboard 8 pin connector and 3 fan cables was difficult. I would have to say, installing the CPU cooler first was a bad idea, I would connect all the cables to the motherboard, THEN install it.
Other than that, the Logitech G series is great, just the G710+ keyboard was not the best price. The corsair mouse pad is very large and tracks good, the fans push a lot of air BUT do not like to be modified voltage wise. Connecting them to a 12-5w controller helps, but it only likes being exactly at 5, 7, or 12w.
Later on, around black friday time, I will look for an i5 to make the final CPU upgrade, along with a Micro ATX motherboard to later get a better, smaller, more lightweight case. Next year may see a GPU upgrade to a GTX 7xx, depending on my budget.
Thanks for reading! I'll try to answer any questions, and feedback would be great
