Description

I am extremely happy with this build, Runs games like Rust, The Crew, TF2, Depth, Portal 2, and Gmod as well as others. My Only problems were the amount of fan headers, although I put in 3 extra fans. I just got some fan splitters. The case had issues, but only for a small thing, One of the plastic tabs to remove the front bezel was no bent correctly and I ended up having to break the small piece to get it off. The fan filters were also not that good. The graphics card need a driver, because it gor 2 fps on the loading screen in TF2. It should be noted that I bought the graphics card from NCIX, during a pick your path promotion with nvidia, choose 1 of 3 games for free with purchase of the graphics card. Calling them and asking for the code was about the easiest service I had ever done, since you need to make an account to order :\ they just said sure whats the order number, ok I see you bought the card, I'll email you the code. BAM done, downloading The Crew for free, a great game btw. The motherboard would NOT connect the the powerline to ethernet adapter without an update also, so I had to use a flash drive and my old laptop. The cd with the driver for the powerline adapter is MINI and doesn't even work with windows 8.1, works with 8 just fine though. It is not even visible and doesn't even matter, but id just think id let you know. My idle temps are hot for the cpu because i am horrible with thermal compound, and the gpu fans don't even turn on at idle and during small games like League of Legends! It is very nice. Cpu gets 57-60C when running prime 95. Photoshop runs very well and opens in seconds thanks to the ssd. The ssd by the way got 493 read and 432 write in Crystaldiskmark, but sometimes it is better. The powerline to ethernet is pretty much the same as straight ethernet, but I only get 20 down and 3 up here in the US. Not on this list, I have a logitech G700s which is wireless and can even be used for amazing gaming, but you can still use it wired for charging and performance. I also have a 4 pack of coolermaster fans for $15 that are quiet enough. The cpu fan is actually the loudest fan besides the graphics card, but the ones on the card never go on above 50% speed. The monitor is beautiful and extremely cheap ,Ill probably be getting 2 soon, its veiwing angle are great and the response time is pretty good. My only complain is the menu navigation and the buttons, only the power button is labeled, and the buttons are underneath, making it hard to navigate. The power supply's fan also doesnt turn on until 20% capacity, unless you switch it to effecient mode. I bought all of this on black friday for $1400.

I plan to have a build similar to yours for gaming. Do you have a cd/optical drive for games or just use Steam or some other online gaming, or is there , cd drive included with the Corsair 200r, etc?
