Gaming and software development: Minecraft, Crysis 3, Diablo 3, Eclipse and Visual Studio. Everything runs so fast it's unbelievable. The SSD is a must. Windows boots too fast to really time it. Less than 5 seconds. I am not able to enable UEFI ultra-fast booting yet, but EVGA is supposed to be releasing firmware updates because their graphics card is preventing it.
Finally I can work on my multiplayer minecraft mods and spin up multiple instances of Minecraft at once AND stream music in the background. Nothing can slow this thing down.
The only issue is the Corsair H100i. I experienced the infamous "loose backplate" issue - so be prepared with some nylon washers to get everything snug.
I'm not a cable management expert, as the pictures indicate. However the case provides many places to tuck them away if that's your thing.
I bought everything at Microcenter, the local brick and mortar here in Kansas City, KS.
