This is my first build ever. Coming from a crappy gaming laptop, this beast is all I could ever dream of. I've been saving money for this one for quite some years. The building process was very smooth except the corsair fans which had to be "drilled" with an electric screw driver, and of course the cable management, but that's not because of the case, no way this case is almost flawless, it was of course because of all the wires that the corsair products come with. Even so, I wouldn't still change anything here. I overclocked the CPU to 4.5 ghz with 1.2 voltage and the GPU with +100mhz on core and +500mhz on memory. Tested the CPU with Prime95 in SmallFFTs mode for 12 hours straight, reaching peak temperatures of 88 C with no worker stopping, and the GPU with Furmark reaching peak temperatures of 78 C. Temperatures never get that high in games tho, CPU never going beyond 60 C and the GPU beyond 70 C. If the temperatures seem a bit high, it's because I set the fan to run at the lowest RPM almost all the time. The corsair fans and the gpu fans tend to get pretty loud especially if you consider there are 12 total fans in there. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them. Huge thanks for this community for helping me pick some of these parts.
