Description

I started this build in March of 2015 with a AMD 7850k, R9 270x, 8GB of 2133 Ares memory, a zalman air cooler and a 1TB HDD. After my friend's dog marked the gpu vent on my case almost ruining my 270x (saved by alcohol, lots of alcohol.) and a sale price on the 4790k from micro center I started on the evolution of the Orangebox into the little orange beast it is now.

On a side note some of the prices here are so low because I am an employee in the remarketing department of an IT solutions company. It definitely has its perks. :)

Besides the hard drives and monitor every other component was brand new so It just goes to show what some hardcore bargain shopping can do.

TL;DR Orange Box ----> Orange Beast

(Edit:) - My average benchmark score from Userbenchmark: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/653311

Pretty satisfied with the results, confused on RAM speeds though. Still trying to find the best ratio for it.

Haha yeah, well you can't normally see the card, though mainly I just haven't found a matching paint I like yet.

Oh no, the scheme looks good. I was referring to the dog piddling on your other GFX card. I had a good laugh over that one and felt your pain as well.

I like it, thought it was different but not too far out from the good ol' orange blue schemes.

I see that you used the Corsair STRAFE RGB keyboard. I really like it, but some reviews I read said that the software was hard to use (even if it is I don't care) and the textured spacebar was absolutely horrible. What's your opinion on the keyboard? Do you like it and reccomend it?

Honestly I love it, I've read those same reviews you did and I went ahead and took a shot with it; its a great keyboard. The textured spacebar thing sounds more like nit picking than an actual con to me, but thats just my opinion, I like it. As for the software I'm not too sure, it was easy enough to set a up a simple color shift with my mouse synchronized but as for the more complicated lighting profiles I just leave that to the pros that upload at corsair's website. I plan on giving a go at customizing one of those with my own color choice eventually.

Then this keyboard is perfect for me. Thank you. I especially like the sound of having textured keys come with it.
