Hello. I've always wanted to know what it would be like building a computer. I will use this machine for doing whatever I feel like; from video editing(vegas pro)/recording(fraps), movies, games, internet browsing, MS Office, ect. This first time build started because the case looked cool. So I bought it, Corsair 350D. Purchased the Corsair AF120 dual pack at the same time cause it was seemed cheap at the time.
Wanted to try liquid cooling and Corsair H100i gave me that simple solution.
The Intel Core i7-4820k for 2 reasons: 1. It's $200 less than the 4930k 2. It works with the motherboard. I went with the ASUS Rampage IV Gene because it was a lga2011 matx and looked cool. Wished it was a blue theme. Had to flash bios for the first time and that was easy.
Got the Corsair RM850 because I thought modular was a cool idea and have plans to sli in the near future.
The ram was miss-priced at Fry's Electronic so I went with them.
Bought the SSD for the price and the GTX 770 cause it was at a local bestbuy and it GLOWS!
Mounted(3M velcro) the SSD to the back cause I saw someone do it and it looked clean.
-As for storage, I just ordered a Seagate 3TB HDD (ST3000DM001). It'll be mounted in the bottom 3.5" drive bay cause t he top has been taken over by the CPU Cooler. -I'll update the pictures and stuff when i pick up a second gpu.
*the UPDATE that no one will run into* (4/19/2014) + 2 GTX 770 in SLI + Sleeved cables + 3TB HDD in the 3.25" bay
I finally bought the 2nd GTX 770. Before that happened though, I picked up some sleeved cables to make it look a little more beautiful. I didn't go all red cables cause that will be too much red. The 3TB HDD is mounted on brackets but due to its really tight fit, I have it hovering above the bottom. By doing so, less strain on bending the H100i tubing. I think I'm done messing with it. Thank you for stopping by.
