Description

This weekend I updated/rebuilt my build from back in 2012. The updates consisted of a new case (Fractal Design Define R5), Liquid Cooling for the CPU (Corsair H100i), and a bigger boot SSD (250GB Samsung 840 EVO) as well as an update to Windows 8.1. The reasoning behind the updates were mostly aesthetic (the R5 is a sleek and beautiful case).

Future plans: upgrading the graphics card (hopefully this summer), new CPU & motherboard (when I can afford it).

Where did you find RAM for such a low price?

The RAM was purchased in 2012. Prices have risen dramatically over the past few years.

is there a big diference in noise level after removing top panels for installing radiator? I will get the same case and cpu cooler so I'm not sure should I install radiator at front or top.

I don't think so, my build runs pretty close to silent (using a custom corsair link profile), except when gaming. I suppose its all personal preference though. It would certainly look better from the outside with the top vents closed.
