Description

Started with an all AMD system, snagged some good deals on some parts and made the shift over to a completely non-amd system. Pictures will include a mixture of the PC from it's original stages to it's current state.

Used for high-end gaming, light design, productivity, and general everyday use.

This build started at the end of 2012 and all the parts are from various points in time from then until now. Only the currently used parts will be listed.

saw1833, I absolutely LOVED looking through the build photos and seeing the progression from "Eh" cable management to better cable management to improved parts and finally an amazingly built system with outstanding cable management. The Build looks fantastic and I'm sure it performs even better then it looks. Good job and thank you for sharing!

Thanks! I really appreciate hearing that from you. I definitely learned a lot doing this build. Seems as if you stop doing them for awhile, you almost have to start again at square one. Nothing like buildings PCs back even in the mid 2000s. It's been an exciting adventure.

Just reading this comment lets me know you are bit and are infected by the addiction :P I agree I remember looking back and stints when I took breaks from building computers and though you have the basic concepts down and are confident that you can do it, it is almost as if you need to relearn nearly everything. And with the amount of product available now and with so many different varying reviews it sure does make things difficult. Thank you again for sharing your "adventure" with all of us.

Correct. I redeemed it through the Intel Retail Edge program.

If I worked for Intel I'd probably have a 4770k, and I'd venture to guess it'd have been cheaper. :P Intel Retail Edge, a program designed for employees at certain retailers to increase product knowledge. Intel's particular program does a LOT for it's members.

I got to get a white case. The contrast always looks so cool.

how did you make the LED in the case change colors or is that part of the case?

It's an NZXT Hue. I have a feeling even though I tried that I may have forgot to include that in the parts list.

Why does it say you have the h100i when in your pictures i see the cool master?

Because you didn't read the description, where I said I've changed out a number of parts and threw in pictures from start to now.

Maybe that's why? Not sure though.

They are indeed. Quiet happy with them. It'd be nice if they were a bit softer and more flexible, but for $27 I couldn't hardly sleeve them myself.

They're all sitting in their boxes. I have someone buying them here shortly.
