Description

After 3 years, I finally upgraded my computer again. Used it mostly for gaming (Got it ready for GTA V), photography, video editing, programming and just generally overclocking. I've had the HAF 932 for ages, when Circuit City still used to be around. Here's my time-lapse building it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VG8uoMkHPFI

I'll hate to say it but this was a rush build. I would considerthis my third build but I usually upgrade or build from what I have. I would say this is the third time I upgraded the major components of my pc: I replaced the MOBO, GPU, CPU, CPU Cooler and PSU. Whenever I build my rig, I put all the effort on making sure it will last me a couple of years without any components failing. I wanted to make sure that 3 years from today, my machine can still run and perform against their newer counterparts. I also don't hesitate to buy an older component if users think its the most reliable. An example of probably one of the best things I bought regarding my rig is probably the first thing I ever bought. The case, the HAF 932, this enormous case has been with me since I first started building my computer, when I literally just took apart an emachine (I kid you not, we bought from Walmart) and housed it on the HAF 932. To get to the point though, one of the biggest reason I got the HAF 932 was for compatibility, it can house many types of MOBOS, and if you have a big CPU cooler or a big graphics card, this case can take it. I love it because it doesn't limit the way I want to expand. And fast forwarding 5 years later, this case still looks great comparing to new cases coming out. It still has that robust and towering look. Just a few spray paint, and I still wouldn't mind showing it off. Since then, I wanted to buy my components with the same idea in mind, where the parts will last long, compatible and beautiful.

Looks awesome. Did you paint the case? If so, how?

Yes. Just did it on my backyard. I took everything apart except the rivets. Just regular glossy paint from Lowes. It gets scratched pretty easily but I don't touch it often so its fine!

When I saw the first picture the first thing I thought was "Was this built on a test bench?" then when scrolling through the rest of the pictures I saw that it was an actual case. Nice case and nice build. Only 1 question though, why get the 8370 over the 8350 or the 8320? You should be able to OC either the 8350 or 8320 to easily outperform the 8370 for better money. Just curious. +1

Also, about your CPU Cooler, would it be able to fit in the Aerocool X-Predator Devil ATX Full Tower Case?
