Description

My first build, and I am incredibly happy with it. It went incredibly smooth, as the Corsair 600T is a wonderful case. Plenty of room for cable management, and the fan controller is handy as well. When turned up all the way the case fans hum at a noticeable, but almost comforting level.

I currently have my i5 overclocked to 4.4GHz at 1.24V. The temps are higher than I would like them to be, but I plan on upgrading the CPU cooler to the Corsair H100i relatively soon.

I love the Logitech G500, but mine came with a few kinks in the cord that are quite annoying.

The 7970 GHz edition is a beast, though it can get a bit noisy at full load. I really don't mind though, as I always have music playing, or my headset on for gaming.

I actually finished this build back in late May, but I have just gotten around to publishing it.

I personally would've gone with an R9 280x, unless you were after the never settle deal... Other than that, very good build! +1

I actually finished this back in May, and just got around to posting. If I had built this now, I totally would have gone with the 280X.

Thanks! I probably spent way too much time researching parts and picking everything out. Then again, I feel like everyone does that, haha.

Nah, I spent almost a month just researching what each part does just so I could an idea of what I wanted to aim at.

Nice PC! balanced and neat. You can solve the front panel USB 3.0 issue using, for instance, an internal card reader for the 3.5" bay, with a USB 3.0 port included, just in case you want to use it. Congrats for a great job.

That is actually another thing that bugged me about the 600T. It does not come with a 3.0 USB header. So I had to route the front port to the back of my case. While it was annoying, it's really not a big deal, as I only have one USB 3.0 compatible device anyways.

The case was made early 2011, I don't think there was a standard plug then, and if there was it was pretty rare.
