Description

Tired of not being able to play the latest games, I decided to buy a high-end PC. I couldn't find my power supply in the list, it's an Enermax Revolution 87+ 650W. I'm not very happy about the cooler, but the motherboard and the RAM have some high heatsinks and wasn't sure about the clearance, so I settled for a smaller cooler (it's still better than the stock cooler). Wasn't expecting the orange color on the case. I'm very satisfied with the rest of the parts. The motherboard has two BIOS chips, so if you break the firmware on one of them (which I did) you can use the second as backup to restore the first. Had some issues at first with the time it would take to see the POST screen after powering on, but after unplugging the video card, updating the BIOS firmware and plugging the video card back in, the problems were gone. The motherboard power connector doesn't go in all the way and I was afraid to apply any more pressure, it still has approximately one millimeter clearance.

How come you didn't use the cable management options the case offers? as for the power connector, don't be afraid to push it in you don't want it lose it could cause issues down the road.

If you clean it up a bit "the cables" it will be one mint machine.

The CPU and motherboard power cables were unfortunately too short to hide them.

its to short because of the way you got your PSU mounted.

It never occurred to me that I can mount it with the fan facing down.

Lovely build, just to bad the cable management is terrible. Also you have an 'k' version processor with a h87 non overclockerble motherboard should of gotten a z87 board or got the non 'k' i7 4770

I wasn't planning on overclocking anything, but I remember having the option to overclock the CPU in the BIOS menu.

Ugh, yeah the cooler was a bad choice. Could have gone with cheapest noctua at that price.
