Description

The motherboard has worked 100% percent for me; all the ports work and the UEFI bios is amazing... my only complaint is the motherboard shield for this was an utter piece of crap that I nearly snapped in half putting in.

The keyboard and mouse are amazing picked them up very cheap for boxing day; the mechanical keys on the keyboard make it awesome to use for long gaming sessions which I am happy about!

My big complaint however is the case, the case is horrible and will most likely pick up a different one, I can't mount my third spectre fan on the inside of the side of the case because the 6 pin's on the 670 prevent me from doing so "sigh", luckily I was able to mount the fan on the outside of the case but it looks ugly as hell (at-least it cools -.-)

Games so far have been AMAZING!, the two gtx670's continue to impress me everyday by their performance and its relativity low temperatures (On Farcry 3 with ultra setting's it never goes above 65 Degrees! and this is for 3-4 hour sessions!)

OH and the reason for i7 over the i5 is because there was a 20$ price range difference because of an amazing sale and I said why the hell not :D, The computer minus the monitors and A40's costed me a combined total of 1350$ I LOVE BOXING DAY!@

(850w is overkill but was cheaper because of a sale)

Awesome build! A-Data are good on SSD's so you shouldn't have a problem! Although, you're right on the case. Need to replace that and you're set

Very nice build. I was curious as to what color switches your keyboard has?

Nice build but why are you using an unlocked processor with the stock cooling fan.

not overclocked yet? you can look at the stats posted at the side of the screen; and also my horrible case does not support any sort of CPU cooling fans, they're all too large. And also the case has amazing air flow with 4+ fans I should be fine.

You might want to try other cooler master cases such as the 922 HAF and the HAF XM if you are looking for mid tower's, 932 HAF or HAF X for full towers. I believe all of those support bigger CPU fans and such

Yes I was looking at a few of those, only issue is price.. I don't want to spend 100$ on a case yet; I have no reason to overclock as of anytime soon but in time I will buy one of those!

In my opinion id rather spend abit on a case because the case is the part holding everything together and keeping it cool, take a look at the new nzxt 630 and the kraken x60 they would be great for youre needs

Well if your really on a budget and don't care too much about cable management then the cooler master elite 431 plus is a good case. Remember that you'll have to use a slim fan for the rear exhaust. Unless you haven't seen if the case could fit a liquid cooler. Then look into one because they take up little space in the cpu area. Just need a bit of space at the top of the case which shouldn't be too hard to come up with.

Almost identical build I just posted, except for the case. That corsair 600T is a mighty fine case, but it's bit pricey.

Whats that left handed mouse you got going there?

Haha, it's not left handed it just has like 12 hotkeys on the side, yeah I love the 600t, it looks great!
