Kind of hard to see the internal photos that are in dark with red glow, effects alone. Anyway to tuck your excess wires neatly into the 5.25" bays? Some handy-dandy zip-ties and Velcro straps will help out too. No rush of course. And I am curious why no Z97 MOBO paired with the i5-4690k, you could still send that back if it was recently purchased. I really would recommended you grabbing a Z97 motherboard for the i5-4690K to use its full potential, overclock or if not turbo boost will occur regardless. Also great to have more features available but I would avoid ASRock's Anniversary Z97 version and snatch a good MSI, ASUS or GIGABYTE Z97.
A better PSU would preferable too if switched to a Z97 MOBO and wanting to overclock or not. Such as Seasonic's S12II/M12II or G Series. EVGA's GQ, GS, B2, G2, or P2. Antec's High Current Gamer. Or Corsair's RMx/RMi, AX/AXi, or HX/HXi.
Regardless, thanks for sharing your build and best wishes!

Very classy, El. Thank you for posting a constructive and positive version of "Your psu choice sucks..." Too many folks on here don't adhere to the posted rules.

Well I have been scolded by both Phillip and Manirelli before proving I'm just as bad as others.

Oh! I have a question for you. I'll pm you.

I try my best even when I was a noobie. Though my knowledge is a bit better over the year but this does not mean I stop learning either, no matter what. I been around the time when the PSU criticisms was a bit more harsh. I mean it became the reason why Philip and Manirelli had to put their foot down. This was last year, 2015. I cannot blame them for telling us to knock it off. Though I am surprised I have not got the lecture on their end, yet.

Well I started posting an acrostic SFS and say a few removed. I think folks figured out I was calling the nasty psu hate screaming nazis Stupid F♡(×ing Sheep. Lol. I have used the corsair cx models. I also over killed the wattage and cooling which is probably why I can say I have yet to see an issue with them. I perform better research from now on before buying components because of what I have learned about the cheaper models from team down and testing, but I will not go back into one now unless it causes an issue. But I rant on, sorry. I like how you give helpful, polite advice.

Oh? Could have bought a Z97 MOBO and paired it with the Pentium G3258. Overclock that to 4.0~4.2GHz if stock cooler. With an aftermarket cooler can go up to 4.5GHz~4.6GHz, depending how well the vCore does in 1.21v~1.28v range. CRYORIG's H7 and above are good aftermarket coolers. Then could saved up money for the i5-4690K, unless it was on sale, I suppose. Feels like jumping hoops when one has to relocate Window's Product Key to a brand new Motherboard but that is only my opinion.
Plus it would have allowed to spend for a quality PSU for high end parts/gaming, instead of paying for a budget oriented PSU. I would not recommend a CX series for high end gaming builds or if I see any overclock intentions with the i5/i7 K processor + the GPU.

So much redness.

Can you get a photo with the pc off, the side cover off and in good natural lighting?

In spite of the H97 with a K cpu and the complaints about the cheaper low watt psu, this will game well. +1 on your build.

I like how Eltech gave options when politely stating the psu choice is not recommended. It's nice to see someone with class and finese on here.

It's hard to understand the term "console killer" with all the instability issues that comes with PC gaming and relatively poor support for PC games..my 2 cents. Rant over!

I think it's more along the lines "how to define" it. It cost money to easily overpower a console but no one has to spend 900-1,200 to do that unless you need/want more uses in a PC. Not really hard to look up consoles' internal hardware and compare it to the best available data that is out there. They made games that are focused for the console spectrum. Maybe different with some games in 2016, since The Division seems to depend a lot on the GPU and a decent CPU. Plus, I just don't know about those programmers... varies on the game and what they are willing to fix on the PC. Some do try and others do not bother.

nice build but I would've gone with a r9 380 to get its free sync :)

Sir, do you know what punctuation is? Not to be overly captious, but seriously, add some punctuation to make your description more legible. Aside from that, why the H97 mobo with the K CPU? You could get a Z97 mobo for a similar price. Also, why'd you buy Windows 10 Pro? The only difference between Home and Pro is that Pro has more encryption. That's literally it. This build will work fine, but it can be improved on in a myriad of ways.

Why not a 380? It performs betters better at a cheaper price.
