Description

Note: finished around 3 weeks ago but didn't upload because of school.

Case, Fans, HDD and SSD were purchased from Scoptec

PSU was purchased from PLE Computers

CPU. Motherboard, CPU Cooler, RAM, Windows and Optical drive were purchased at PCCaseGear

(Note:) Scorptec was best in terms of service and speed, while Scoptec took 2 days to get here, PCCaseGear took 4 days and PLE took about a week.

I was pretty nervous about breaking stuff so i worked pretty slow. Took me around 2 days to build it with cable management help from my dad.

Its main use is gaming along with normal computer stuff like music and internet stuff.

CPU: went with Haswell because its the newer generation and it allowed me to get a better motherboar

Currently Over clocked to 3.8ghz. i'm kinda scared to go higher, gonna test 4.2ghz sometime soon

VERY happy with case, looks super cool.

(Note:) the monitor in the list has got built in speakers, mine doesn't

I already had speakers and my cousin was kind and gave me his old headset.

Tried my best to colour coordinate everything to black and blue to match the case. Very happy with the whole thing.

The total cost was around $2050 when i got it because i had store credit.

Going to run 3DMark 11 soon, ill put in the results.

Looks great! Congrats on your first build

I love the above shot that shows the fans in detail ( I believe it's the 16th picture )

Cable management is great and the build is an overall powerhouse

I'm sorry prices are so crappy in Australia haha

interesting to see the h100i mounted below 200mm fans. how'd that work?

 
 
Sz_Benny [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

The case came with L-Brackets so the h100 sits just below the 200mm fans. so its push/pull for the h100

sweet!

I would say don't worry too much about going a bit higher on the OC, as it stands your processor is running cool enough and you have good enough coolers to sustain a higher clock. Excellent build, looks nice, good cable management, and that build is should run most games where you want 'em to run. Have fun with your build man!

What the schnaps? The Australian price is under 250$ and in USA it costs 8 times the price. For real??!
