Personally I'm picking Zeta!! The carbon fiber look is always classic + the TUF just adds that sex appeal!

Awesome builds. For me it's pretty much neck-and-neck. I like the look of the 'Tuff Inside' build perhaps a little more because everything goes together quite well. Though in the end, I like the case better on the other build (I have the newer model (R5))) and I also like the motherboard on that build better too. I hope you guys are overclocking those 'K' processors though.

Either way great to see 2 very well matched builds up against each other. For me it's a tie. However perhaps the Tuff wins due to a newer GPU and well the parts all match very well aesthetically speaking.

Great build! How is the combo of logitech G710 and G502? What would you consider the Pros and Cons of each? Also, what games do you play?

thanks for your comment :)

the combo is great for the SALE price, i got it with blue switches feels great, cons wish i could program the LEDs and that the USB cord was braided !

Hey, thanks for the comment. He ordered it from Intel retail edge. If you work for a tech store, it's available twice a year for a reduced price!

I'd say I liked #ZETA better.

Awesome stealthy color scheme and carbon fiber look. I'm going to have to carbon fiber my own rig!

Zeta

nice Build. But how did you get the processor for so cheap?

He picked it up from Intel retail edge. It's a deal if you work in retail and sell tech stuff. Its only twice a year but totally worth the price. Hope that helps!

I may be completely wrong, but is the name (This Means War) a reference to 30 Seconds To Mars?

Anyway, great build. Love the Lego man figures! But gotta go with ZETA; looks really clean and I always think that case looks amazing, if pulled off well, which is has done.

Now comes the Judging! For you I give you a 8/10 but I am afraid your friend wins with 9.5/10. His was more pleasing to the eye but yours was still great too! :P +1
