Description

The only problem during construction was removing the stock 120mm fan at the back of the case to fit my Zalman radiator. The screw would not come out and thus got stripped.

This build isn't exactly new, just upgraded. I got fed up with my $50 Antec 100 windowed case, and my old GTX 660 Ti wasn't cutting it anymore. It didn't handle Battlefront 4 very well. I did not want to order a case online so I went to the local computer store and they had the Cooler Master Enforcer in stalk. and a demo computer with that case on display. I loved it. Well worth the $100 I spent on it.

I opted to go with the GTX 780 instead of the GTX 780 Ti, mainly because I didn't want to shell out $200 dollars more. Even though I could. I gotta say I am Impressed with NVIDIA's design for their cooler on the GTX 780. It destroys any stock cooling solution that AMD has on any of their cards. and it looks amazing to boot. That green LED logo on the side really makes it look nice. I also saw that the GTX 780 beat out AMD's R9 290X by a small margin in Linus' GTX 780 Ti review on YouTube.

The rest of the parts I got from Fry's Electronics in San Diego so far, being a year old now, they all preformed superbly. Learned a lot about computer building from it, and had a lot of fun doing it.

I use this computer primarily for gaming and graphic rendering as well as webpage design and photoshop

2k build and no SSD?

Not yet. That's next.

I would've waited for the SSD and installed windows on it to start.

+1 from me either way :p

the only thing I benefit from an SSD is speed, so I decided to wait

Great build. More internal pictures would be great.

Also, how is the mouse feeling? I'm using the Deathadder but I have the double-clicking problem so I'm looking for an alternative 5-button mouse.

Deceptively light.

Love the case, I have one too! :) Only complaint is lack of places to attach fans. Many wants for the 780

Fans aren't a problem for me since mine is liquid cooled. and I recently discovered a good byproduct from my setup, that massive 200 mm fan in the front brings in cool air to the rest of the case and then the centrifugal flow fan on the GTX 780 actually sucks in that cold air and cools the chip and that air is then blown out the back. There is almost zero warm air inside the case because of that. Whereas my old Twin Frozr III GTX 660 Ti would blow warm air on my power supply.

I know but for my air cooling I only have 4 fans, would have to ghetto rig watercooling since I ONLY want the NZXT Kraken x40. But nice win on the extremely functional cooling setup

It would be a good idea to explore other options for water cooling, Zalman, Cooler Master, Corsair, and even Antec make good coolers. I went with the Zalman because its quiet and because of that awesome blue LED on the pump

Probably but I'm worried about them failing and having to replace everything. It would be horribly difficult in my situation. And NZXT has been doing pretty good for itself and their products show it
