Description

First off, This was my first build. I had a lot of fun doing this build with my friend. I am using this PC to play more high end games and any work needed. I have been saving for awhile and can finally build it. I have yet to do benchmarks, overclock, etc. I got windows 8 from a college friend because students deserve everything for free, Right??? Its a slight possibility that I might put mountain lion on here to dual boot for fun. I couldn't get many pictures due to needing to build this quickly. I really like the Seagate hybrid drive better than the WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD I was Getting. The ram, I5, GPU, MB, SSD, And Fan work really well. Also Kingston made some great RAM and They are awesome! The DVD Writer is like your normal DVD Writer. The PSU works great with haswell CPU's and has alot of room for upgrades, SLI. The CPU Fan Is a bit big for a fan but is amazing at cooling and is very quiet. I love the case. It is big, Sleek, And Affordable. I overall like this build alot and cant wait to use it to the fullest. What do you guys think? Edit 1: I got everything from amazon. Thanks 2 day shipping!

Like the build :) +1 I'm thinking of something similar so it's good to see others with similar specs. Quick question, are you able to get a CPU temp reading? It'd help with my CPU cooler decision! Cheers

Forgot to mention that I actually switched Motherboards and rebuilt it. The CPU temp was about 41 degrees C in the bios with the fans. I dont know how it is under heavy load but it performs great. I got this Mobo. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CU4L4M2/ref=pe_385040_30332200_TE_item It works great, has a clean bios, and runs mac. Im using my pc for windows 8 gaming and learning to code on mac. Everything runs smooth. No lag yet. Could I see your specs. Maybe I could give you some help

Any reason why you swapped the motherboard? What was up with the MSI G45?

I used the MSI updater to update everything on the mobo. It updated the BIOS and thus corrupted the mobo and i returned it for a gigabyte,
