Description

Im 17 years old and computers really interest me. Im going to be going to college for IT after I graduated this year. This is my first ever build and I am very proud of it! I really like the red/black color scheme so I based my build off that. I know Asus makes quality products so I stayed with them on my major parts. I started with the Hero motherboard and built from there. Also the red/black color scheme is SICK! I knew when it comes to PCs you practically get what you pay for so I tried to go with the best for what I could with my budget, and I believe I did. I think I did decent on the cable management and good airflow. I really like the case too, it has tons of room and a great design. The i7 is blazing fast also and the 770 GPU is amazing! All comments, suggestions and questions are greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!

This is a great looking build. I see you put a lot of effort in it and you've done great for your first go around!

Something I noticed, your evo fan is backwards. From the picture, it seems to be pushing air back inside the case, when you want it pushing air out the rear. You can use the arrows on the fan to help you. Also, since you're moving it, pushing air out is more effective than pulling air out, so put the fan on the right side of the evo as well.

So flip and switch the fan on there:P It'll help your airflow!

I was going to say the same thing. All you have to do is pop the fan off and put it in the other side. Simple and you'll get much better airflow.

Thanks a ton! I did it this morning and it dropped my CPU temp about 5c!

Cable management could use some work. Move your GPU to the top 16x slot and your wifi to some other 1x slot. You probably could have spent a little more on the PSU and gotten some nicer sleeving on the cables. And also, that blue USB cable needs to go. Spend a couple bucks on a black/red replacement. Also, why the 4770k and 16gb of RAM?

Nice build. Very similar to the one I'm building right now. Got most of the piece but haven't got the time to build it yet ! http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/MkY Thinking of maybe upgrading the ssd. Sandisk Extreme II 480gb is in special today only at NCIX.ca

Okay build... Shouldn't have used window's 8.1 in my opinion... I have about the same build but it was only $12000 and I have a 1200 W power supply (overkill, but I got it for $100) AMD PROCESSOR ALL THE WAY, 250GB SSD.... Overall Great build on your part, don't you just love that Case tho <3

how roomy is that housing? im thinking about switching from a Corsair 300R. i have an asus r9 280x gpu so i need quite a bit of room in the case. also id like to know how good the overall quality of the case is along with how good cable management space is. Thanks for anyones help!! :)
