Description

This is my first build. I always wanted a strong and stable PC that will be future proof - I hope to have achieved that.

I hesitated between the i7 4770K and the i7 3930k. And, with some luck and good timing, intel released the new 4820K that is generally better and same price approx.

The motherboard, Asus Sabertooth X79 was a safe choice. It has an awesome feature that will come in handy when i'll launch the PC for the first time tomorrow: since the intel 4820K is an ivy-bridge E series, there is incompatibility with the board, that is solved by just updating it. And it is done very easily with the sabertooth: you just need to plug the baby on power supply, insert a flash drive containing the update, and pushing a button on the board. Et voila!

The Case, Coolermaster HAF-X, is totally overkill. I understood that while building this PC. I should have bought a simpler tower and save cash. Well, at least I won't have any problems with temperatures and space :)

The Corsair H90 wasn't what I wanted at first: I wanted the H100i. But they didn't have it where I bought the parts. So the H90 was the 2nd choice. I'm sure it will do just fine. The H100i was an overkill anyway.

I chose the Gigabyte OC GTX780, since it's a beast, and plan to make it a dual in the future.

I have currently built most of the Axe, only missing: the PSU, the GPU, the monitor and 1x8gb vengeance.

Tomorrow I will launch it for the first time and install Windows. I will upload pictures as well.

Edit: That's it, I added the Seasonic 1000W Platinum to the show, for future proofing (a sli 780) I launched this build, after around 10 hours a slow and careful work.

yeah i know cable management is a bit messy on the inside. unfortunately the electric cables provided by seasonic are too short for good cable management on a full tower
