This is my first build I have ever done. She is named Pandora, after my dog that passed away over Thanksgiving break. I did it on Christmas and it took about 3 hours to complete. I may have to redo my thermal paste, when my build was done I had like 37C across the board but earlier this week I started getting 51C MAX so something is up. At idle its 37C but after a few rounds of Battlefield 3 or editing its like 51C. Overall the build was SUPER easy, never knew how easy it was. Placing the bracket over the CPU was terrifying, all of the popping and cracking was horrible. Also I have plans to get a bigger SSD (I went with a smaller one to save on money so I could get a few games on Steam). Also is my CPU bottlenecking my system? I feel like it is, I hope to one day replace it with a i7 (again downgraded so I could get some games).
