This is my first build and it turned out well. This is obviously a gaming rig. At this moment, I'm still stress testing the system. Things are looking good though. :) My goal was to run the cpu @ 4.6 Ghz but it wasn't stable. I had to lower it to 4.3 Ghz which is not bad for a beginner I guess. :/
I haven't played any game on it yet. I've been using OCCT, MSI kombustor, Unigine (Valley & Heaven) and Cinebench to stress test the CPU and GPU.
Please share your thoughts and advice.
Note: The GPU is MSI 780 Gaming (not Lightning)
Update: I played different games on it, all max out a d ran perfectly smooth!
The games I played were Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Bioshock Infinite, Arma II (Dayz and Dayz origins), Tera online, Final Fantasy XIV ARR.
I also purchased the following parts: Asus Xonar dx soundcard, Logetech 230 headaet, Benq XL2420TE, Corsair (K70, M40 & MM200).
