Description

I built this rig to replace my laptop because i wanted more performance and a custom build. Most of these parts i got from microcenter dang they have great deals especially on black friday. I use this machine for personal use and mainly gaming. And yes of course there were problems. I originally went with win 7 but that failed so i switched to win 8 and it worked. but before that my first mobo was dead so that sucked it was a free gigabyte one so i spent the extra $30 bucks to get a Asus one. Finally once i got my rig running I could max out most of my steam games so in the end it worked out

Idk it just happened Main reason I went for it because i wanted custom look anyways I have no regrets its beautiful and yes I know I could've put more into the gpu also finally I changed the gpu since then Its a gtx 960 g1 gaming by gigabyte,

Sick build! The only thing wrong is that you didn't go NVIDIA on GPU. Just personal preference I guess, but the GTX 960 SuperSC would give the same performance with a higher memory clock.

Do you think it would be ok / logical to spray paint the the 2 copper tubs on the top of the cooler? Planning on using engine type spray paint which is heat resistance. Nice build too!
