Description

I posted my build a while back (Oct. 7th, 2014) but at that time it wasn't finished. This is the finished product.

What's new: I bought and installed a CPU cooler and a new PSU.

I would like to start by just saying thank you to all the great people on here and over at /r/buildapc. Oh and sorry for the poor photo quality. So this was my first time building a computer, and I'm surprised that I didn't brake anything. I use this mainly for gaming, but will be using it for school work and a bit of coding. I really enjoy this computer, it was fun to build and a bit stressful.

I was originally planning on getting an AMD FX-8320, but I was told if I wasn't planning on over-clocking to go with this CPU and get a better graphics card. In the list it shows the windowed version of this case, but I ended up getting the non-windowed case because it was cheaper at the time.

Updated performance info: Arma 3: 40 FPS, Ultra video settings

Tomb Raider: 46 FPS, Ultra video settings

Arma 2: 40 FPS, Very high video settings

Witcher 2: Runs pretty fantastic on max settings (don't know the FPS)

The only real issue that I had was when I accidentally bought the download only version of Windows 8.1, luckily my friend had the installation disk. Also another problem that I've realised is that one of the front USB 3.0 headers doesn't work.

Not a bad build. That has to be one of my all time favorite cases.

Yeah I love this case, it's easy to use and route cables through the back. It's made from good quality stuff and it's pretty cheap.

I've never actually used one but they look so cool IMO.

Am I the only one who thought his mouse color scheme looks like a shoe?

It looks like the GPU is sagging a bit, although it may be the angle of the shot.

I think it's just from the camera angle
