I built this PC for my son for his 11th birthday, I started to look into buying parts around June 2013 finished around Sept 2013. His birthday was in October, he was so excited. I plan on buying a second 760 and giving it to him next October. I also overclocked the 4670k to 4.6 real easy at OK temps 100%load @ 71c with the 212, but it runs at stock for now and the same for the 760.

WIRELESS CARD = IT'S NOT BAD , HE GETS GOOD SIGNAL IN HIS ROOM
CASE = LOVE THE CASE, LOTS OF ROOM, AND QUIET

I WANTED TO HAVE AS MUCH AIR FLOW AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE AS HIM BEING 11 HE HAS LEFT IT ON ALL DAY WHILE HE IS AT SCHOOL AND NOW I AM THANKFUL FOR MY FORESIGHT.
