Refresh from my few year old C2D E8400 machine. Used for general purpose with some light to medium gaming. No O/C.
Plan on adding a Corsair H100i.
The P/S and MB were open-box items I got for much less than listed price. The P/S had one damaged SATA plug. The M/B was missing the Q-connector piece (*update 1/12/15 - Asus refused to send me a replacement piece, purchased one from Ebay for less than $4). The case arrived in very mildly damaged condition (minor dent in top that almost looks designed and a small plastic clip broken off of front "press on/off panel" which was obviously a weak point of the design and mentioned in several reviews.
Everything assembled easily and booted on first try.
In time I'd like to upgrade the video card. I already had the R9 270x that I had used in the E8400 machine. I got it at a good price (at the time) about 4 months ago. The E8400 was a bottleneck so I didn't want to spend anymore at the time. If I find a great deal on one soon, I may Crossfire it, but will probably wait for the GTX970 to come down in price.
The monitor I had for a couple of years. I deactivated the copy of Win8.1 on my old system and used it on this one (put Win10 on old comp). Both Seagote HD's were from old system.
*Included below, I've ordered a second set of the G. Skill Sniper RAM to bump up to 16GB total. `Will probably install the additional RAM this weekend (1/16-1/18) and take some better photos.
