Description

All of the parts marked 0.00 were from my previous build. The only new parts are the Hyper 212 Evo, The AsRock 990FX Killer motherboard, and the Corsair 760T.

CPU Cooler - instead of transplanting my H100i into my new case, I went with the air cooler because of the simplicity of it. My CPU runs slightly warmer, but that is to be expected when going from water to air cooling.

Motherboard - Bought new motherboard because on my previous build, I stripped a screw on the stock amd cpu cooler bracket and the only compatible cpu cooler was the H100i. I opted to buy a new motherboard because I am not comfortable trying to drill out the screw from my motherboard.

Corsair Case - I was going to upgrade my Corsair 500R to the Corsair 750D, but the refurb on sale at microcenter was very bad condition and I opted to spend the extra 25 bucks to buy the Corsair 760T. All my drives are 2.5 in, so I only use and ssd mounts and that makes cable management much easier. Love the large window cut out, and the cable management area behind motherboard is very nice. Much easier cable management than on my previous Corsair 500R

Had a problem during first boot up. The computer would power on, but I had nothing showing on my monitor. Thought my Mobo was DOA because I bought it open-box at microcenter. I had all my power cables plugged in, my fan headers in the correct cpu fan header. I am running my Hyper 212 evo in push-pull and I had a fan plugged into the header for cpu fan 1 and the second fan plugged into cpu fan 2. I figured out that my motherboard didn't like how my second fan on the 212 evo was plugged into cpu fan 2 header. Changed headers and it posts, and boots to windows just fine.

Ya, I realized that. Might buy a 4x4 kit of corsair memory using my tax refund or buy some for my birthday.
