I built this PC about a month and a bit ago now. I have finalized it and i think it finally time to share my experience with the wonderful community of pcpartpicker. I originally owned an Alienware (I know :( ) and started planning on what parts i should get in the summer of 2015. I thought i should build my own instead of buying a pre-built one. In my opinion there as so much advantages of building your own, i'm not going to list them but e.g. learning experience, money. I thought the experience was great. If right now you are deciding whether or not to buy or build a PC, I strongly recommend you build one, as the fun experience you get through building one is well worth it. I named the build 'royale' because of the striking red,gold and white features with bold black surroundings. I have to say building in the R5 was a breeze, cable management was nice, I admit i could clean it up a tad more with more cable ties. The PC has performed excellently so far and great temps. Speaking of temps I plan to get an aftermarket CPU cooler soon with a £50 budget, you can suggest a cooler in the comments if you'd like, I will update this build when I eventually get it!
Motherboard Evalution: I decided on this for the following reasons: Nice price range, great aesthetics, meets my needs, z97, lga 1150, msi reccomendation from a friend.
Memory Evaluation: Originally I was going to go for 8gb but i saw this on sale so i thought i'd get it. I do have XMP enabled for the 2400mhz, works fine with haswell.
SSD + HDD Evaluation: SSD great price range, great speeds bang 4 $.
Video Card Evaluation: EVGA is great when it comes to GPU, and better clocked speed thus it's factory overclocked, and got it on a cyber monday sale :)
Case Evaluation: Was going for the Fractal design r5 titanium window, but everywhere was out of stock, and really wanted an r5 so I thought the blackout would still suit me nice.
Power Supply Evaluation: Great bang for the buck for --> gold rated, fully modular and OEM seasonic, got it when it was nice and down in price.
Win 10 pro got very cheap on ebay, OD is an OD :).
The extra case fan for more great positive air pressure for extra measure. Ordered the white fan before I ordered the blackout, I would have got a black one if I would have known. But it's fine, still looks great.
And the nzxt hue RGB was an ideal LED solution for my build!
I can add more description soon if I feel like it :D!
