Well I guess I built a PC, It's my first and definitely wont be my last. Here she is, runs Battlefield 3 at an average of 85 FPS on Ultra after I overclocked it. It ran BF3 at about 70 or 75 before the OC. I can't recall the temp of the CPU, should have looked at it closer. I haven't done anything as far as overclocking the GPU either, I'm not sure if it comes overclocked or what but the Gigabyte OC Guru II software wouldn't launch even after I uninstalled/re-installed it. I think I'm gonna download msi afterburner. Windows experience score of 8.1, for what that's worth. I'm really diggin' the monitor, except for the stand it comes with, it is VESA compatible though so there's plenty of options for customizing that. I do think the BD optical drive is junk though. I've had the unit for about 3 weeks now and it works and all but sometimes it makes a noise and my instinct tells me its not gonna last long. No worries though. I really like the case; It's sleek, sexy, and quiet. No LED for the SSD/HD activity though. Actually building it was easy as cake, I did it in about three hours. Everything went smooth and she fired up with no problems, I was nervous as hell too.
