Description

I will admit it is not the best cable management of all time, but, it does not bother me that much, i think it's decent for not having a modular power supply. It plays all the games i want it to play on maxed settings. Like bf3, DOTA, Sniper Elite v2 etc. the only really issue i have is the side fan. i originally wanted it to suck air in to the case but the screws that came with it were not long enough to do that so i made it an exhaust. Other than that it is amazing, i also think that windows 8 is underrated, i mean i don't like the METRO crap but i just ignore it installed the windows button from nineite and used it as a faster, more responsive version of windows 7. I have only overclocked the graphics card using MSI AfterBurner... My settings are : 12+ Voltage, Power limit at 122%, added an extra 154 to the core clock, added an extra 170 to the memory clock and it seems to be a fairly stable overclock and runs games amazingly well. And normally peoples graphic cards get destroyed by metro 2033 but this sits at 60fps with adaptive vsync and maxed settings. Since i was a first time builder i did manage to break something, the top pcie slot.... so i have to put it in the 8x slot so it wont be running at maximum performance :/ i know it will be a very small difference but still.

Your cpu cooler looks kinda like a companion cube from portal XD Work a bit more on your cable mgmt, other than that looks great!

Great component usage however your cable management makes me nervous with the proximity to your fan blades... Enjoy the new machine!

aha well lets just say there was a fan header that neaded to be used and as you can see by the size of the cpu cooler it was hard to get to and i was too naive to take out the graphics card, so my assumption is a put too much presure on it..

Not a bad setup. I'd just question why get modular if you arent going to spend the proper time to do cable management. Also you psu is way too big. Could have got a platinum or gold rated one in the 600-700 watt range for close to that price.

that's something i was thinking about to, there might be a change in psu's in the future and the 900w was for if i wanted another 670 and room to do some overclocking etc, and the cable management isn't perfect but i don't look inside it so yeah

For OC still dont need that high, but you will def be set if you ever wanna do sli cards. Also with Antec you did get a top quality brand in the psu. So good choice there.
