Description

I needed a PC for school that could handle Auto Cad, Photoshop CS6 and Sketchup Pro. I got a really good deal on most of these parts from a co-worker that never used them so I spent just over $1300 on all of it. I'm looking to upgrade the mother board because I need another USB 2.0 slot. Over all I'm really happy with the speed and power of my PC. I didn't have any issues building the PC except for running my cables and making them appear some what clean and get the cover on the back at the same time. I guess that will come with more practice on future builds. My case has blue trim not the black that the item description says. Trying to color coordinate a build can be tough and make it hard to pick parts.

The trim on the pictures looks pretty black to me...

Great build though! More pics?

how is the Aperture M 5.25" Multi-Media Hub working for u? is it buggy or really good?

I like it a lot and the fact that my 3.5" bays are all internal the Aperture M was my only option. One downside is you will need a USB 3.0 and 2.0 for it on the Motherboard which is why I'm looking to upgrade my motherboard for one that has an extra 2.0 slot.

I don't think you can get the white w/ blue trim anymore but I could be wrong. NZXT's website shows it but does not list it in options to order. I had to get this one off amazon and pay a lot more in shipping form a private seller.

Are you used to trackballs? I find it interesting; supposedly they're the best for AutoCAD and similar applications where precision and ergonomics are top priorities, but for whatever reason not a single engineer at my job uses one. What do you think?

Yes I have used this model for over a year and it helps with my carpal tunnel. My 4yr old has been using it as long as I have and she loves it.

Cool, would you say it is more accurate than a regular mouse?

I wish there was a mouse that had a trackball in the same place as this one, but with a button that switched mouse control between the trackball and a more standard laser on the bottom.

I know I can be more proficient with this mouse. It's faster but not in a way that the pointer slides past what I need to click on.

Yeah I run some big programs for school, so I don't have much time for gaming. Not that I don't want to just don't have the time.

Easy it was only $70 for a student to buy plus $10-$15 for the disc for a full version of it.

Hoping you could respond soon, I was wondering how you installed the cpu cooler. I have the red version of your case(even have the sleeved LED kit in Red) and am trying to figure out how the cpu cooler goes in there. If you still got this could you possibly explain/ take a picture of the inside top cooler?

Thanks!

Awesome build btw, I couldn't find the Blue and White Trim like you got I was originally going with an Portal Aperture Science theme but that fell through with my budget at the time and now I have a lot of stuff setup now so I kind of passed that now. But if don't change the fact I envy that case. All in all a nice setup if I do say so myself! :D

Ahah, a 7870 ghz edition?? I would have inserted a 670 or a 780, or I would have inserted a less powerful processor like a 760k Athlon II byu AMD.Anyway nice build

I got a good deal on the parts from a friend so I can't complain about it. I got the CPU, MOBO and the 7870 for $450 so yeah.

the i7 he used is perfect for cad. and as for graphics card? that is definitely a reasonable card. if he doesnt truly game all that much he doesnt need anything more than what he has. the cad programs he runs will work perfectly with that setup.

No I don't game on the PC that much. Mostly for software for school and work related.

Yes I run some big programs that require some power when running them together. I use Auto Cad, SketchUp Pro and Adobe CS6. Makes me hate when I'm in class dealing with the slow PC's they have for us. This summer I'm going to upgrade the Mother board and Ram.
