Description

I bought this complete setup for $500 off a guy on Craigslist (including most of the original boxes). The keyboard has a few keys that don't work, otherwise everything is in great condition. I've used it for about a week now and have already ordered an SSD that should be here tomorrow. Once that's in things should really speed up nicely. I've already got the itch to build again though.... I think I have an addiction....

About the pics, the third pic is of the "awesome" cable management it had originally. I unplugged everything and took everything out except the mobo/cpu/cooler. I then set out to take my first shot ever at cable management. I think it turned out alright. Only things that would be better: 1. USB 3.0 connector for the motherboard from the front USB 3.0. The mobo has usb3 header but the case only has an extension that has to plug into the I/O port on mobo. 2. I needed about an inch longer 8-pin power connector for the mother board. This would have allowed me to rout it back with all the other cables. Instead it had to go along the front of the mobo/GPU.

I would downvote if you built this now, but for $500 this is a pretty darn good deal.

Agreed, nearly $550 today would go just to mouse, keyboard, headset, and sound card the other guy bought. Maybe I'll make some money off this and it will be a good starter platform. I do like the case though, maybe it's cause I've never had a decent case with many fans. Either way I do like it.

The mechanical keyboard itself would have been a pretty dime. Also, legit Windows 7 is worth something.

I think a lot of people on here overspend on rigs that are one or two generations old just because they want new parts. Sometimes, it just makes more sense to buy pre-owned.

I would flip the PSU over, this will allow you to intake fresher/cooler air from the under the case instead of the hot air from the GPU. Also it should allow you to run the CPU cable back behind the motherboard

Very very nice buy for $500 bucks, +1

I initially did this to reroute the cpu cable, but it turns out the bottom of the case is solid, no where to pull air from for the PSU. :(

Oh wow that's unfortunate.... you could always do a bit of drilling!

If you read his comment, he states: "About the pics, the third pic is of the "awesome" cable management it had originally. I unplugged everything and took everything out except the mobo/cpu/cooler. I then set out to take my first shot ever at cable management. I think it turned out alright."

If you look at the second pic of the insides of the case, I think he did a pretty good job with the cables.

I actually have it listed on ebay right now as a complete system as I felt I could save some money on shipping this way instead of parting it out. Everything included I listed it for $900 which I think is still not a bad deal considering everything that's included.
