About the PC:
So this was the first PC i have ever built, I have been wanting to build my own PC for the longest time but could never justify it since I do not play many games. After putting it off for about 7 or so years (I am currently 23) I finally pulled the trigger and built this. I built this PC back in February but procrastinated on putting up on the site but i found some free time and decided to showoff what I got. Now I know this PC is way overpriced and I easily could have built a cheaper computer that could outperform this one, but I had my mind set on a couple components and a theme (Blue/Black) already set. If anything It was a great learning experience.
The first problem I ran into was that my start-up would take around 1 min to 1 min 30 sec....mind you I am running an SSD and knew something was wrong. I realized my antivirus (Panda) was using up 75% of my CPU so I uninstalled that and went with the trusty AVG and it now starts up in around 15 sec.
Most recently (7/3/15) I was playing Diablo 3 and notice my FPS were dropping from ~130ish to ~6 so i stopped playing, not really sure what to make of it. I wasn't sure if it was my internet or if the game was just lagging since the new PTR just came out. After leaving the game for a couple hours I tried again later that night and had the same problem occur so I quit the game and opened up Core Temp and realized that my temps had shot up to ~97°C.... my average temps are around ~38-40°C. I panicked and turned off my PC to allow it to cool down, when I started it back up The first thing that came up was my bios with "CPU Fan Error." I had been warned about the CM Glacer 240l (was a nightmare to install by the way) and the problem with their pump but figured for what it is and the price it was worth the risk. So I should have listened to the reviews because after only 5 months, it seems as if the pump quit working. I plugged it into a spare power supply I had and didn't hear the pump going so i'm assuming it's done. I am going to contact CM soon regarding this issue. I ended up installing the stock Intel CPU fan until I decide if I want to get the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 of Dark Rock TF since I really don't want to risk using the 240l again and I know myself and I am going to get caught up with a very expensive custom loop if I want to go with water cooling again.
So thanks for your interest and I welcome any comments, critics, suggestions, etc. Have a great day.
