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.
