This was my first build, how did i do? this thing runs so well. I got the white case instead of the NZXT black one. It can run anything i throw at it on ultra, except planet side 2 it dips to 40 FPS. everything else it runs at like 60... i love it :) when i was installing a second fan i fried the fan controller and it sucks, but NZXT was nice enough to send me a free one to replace it. Well everything else is working to 100% , only the WD blue drive gets 3 stars but that is because it is the bottle neck in my system!
