Description

This was my first computer build. For the most part, it went without issue. Had a failed hard drive, which was a downer, but other then that, everything went smoothly. Only hard part was wiring the fan controller, which was a pita, and redid from the above picture. This thing is a monster! It runs every game I've tried at at least 55 fps on ultra.

I'm sorry but I hate that case so much But I like the build

Yeah I know. It looked cooler before I bought it. i'm trying to get a new one now, might just sell it and start from scratch. That'd be easier anyway.

Great parts but I will have to agree with Hman1250. The case is really really bad looking.

Any suggestions on cases?

The Phanteks Enthoo Pro or Corsair 450D would be a nice improvement, and would look much better.

But is $50-100 more.

I own the Enthoo Luxe but that's a Full ATX tower. If you're wanting a mid-tower, I would look into the the Fractal Design Define R4 (R5 just came out so you can get it at a good price). Has a side window if you prefer that as well. Great for near silent builds as the panels have sound dampening material. I had a MicroATX build in the Fractal Design Define Mini and it was one of my favorite cases to build in.

I think I'm gonna go with a full tower for next time.

Definately get that gpu. Initally there was some whine only under load, but that's gone now after time. And for 400 you cant beat it. Plus I got a free evga mouse with mine

Hehe I picked up 2 of the EVGA FTW 970 it was that or the 980 Classified. I got the 2 games (Far Cry 4 and The crew) Ubisoft did a pitiful job though as Far Cry won't even boot up and The Crew won't download properly :(

Yeah well it was kind of the point as I have a bit of money left over as I worked some overtime :). It's mainly for heavy gaming an 3D Modeling

Sweet, I bet you can run anything on 1080p. The case is not that bad. I got a setup based on a 4790k too and soon ill get the gigabyte gtx 970. How is that cooler treating you with that slight OC?
