I built this system to game and to render home movies etc .... I actually built 2 of them, one of them was for my brother. Same identical hardware. No issues with his build, however, mine was tough. System hung and at times it would go into a reboot loop. After a week of troubleshooting, I found that one of the 8GB Ballistix Sport memory module would fail, not all of the time just sometimes, making the system unstable. I replaced the memory Mushkin and am now waiting to comes of it.
When the system runs, it runs blazing fast.
