First build I have done in 10 years, man have things gotten easy!

I purchased the majority of the items from PCCase gear (in Oz) and everything was delivered next day. I was afraid the smaller form factor would be an issue but the Bitfenix case is wide enough for it not to be a problem at all.

for around $1400 for everything my only regret is not getting a larger SSD, having not used one before the difference in load times and response is ridiculous. I'm going to add another one soon. The corsair H100i is big but quiet, the LED on the pump looks wicked inside the box as well.

"First build I have done in 10 years, man have things gotten easy!" - inspires me with confidence, about to do my first TWO builds in ELEVEN years! :)

It should take you half the time as did back then. No jumper pins on the drives to play with (none on the mobos either). Builds are so much neater with the SATA connections and not those big ugly ribbon connectors as well.

You should've spent a little bit more on a faster HDD but I guess you have the SSD to make up for that. Anyways, nice build!

My regret is not getting a bigger SSD, those things are INCREDIBLE. I use the HDD like an external hard disk for media and stuff whilst apps like autocad, my structural design software and games run from the SSD. The thing takes less than 5 seconds to boot and you can turn it on and open CAD or bioshock and be running in less than 30 secs.

Not really, 7200 is a huge step above 5400.

Show me some proof. I have enough proof to show they're very similar.

There is a obviously big difference between 5400 and 7200.

I'll take a few more when I get home, in the dark the corsair LED in the water pump shines from inside the mesh box, looks killer.

Silverstone ST75F-P, it was a tight squeeze but works fine.

I'd love to see a little more of this build. I also live in Aus and am interested in how you put it together as I am planning a possible build similar to this

Don't lie friend; this build is too clean to be built by someone who has been long off the scene!

that was a photo from the gpu side, looks nicer than the other.

cable management not too bad with a modular psu and no optical drive (didnt fit of course and ffs I havnt needed it yet!)
