Installed Windows 7. So far so good. Everything is running very smooth so far touch wood.
This thing is really fast with the SSD with no overclocking and runs cool. One day I'll get around to Benchmarking it.
Im still waiting on my custom fit DEMCIfilters and they should be here next week. I live out in the country where its dusty so I wanted to protect my investment. They are a bit expensive but what the hey, I already doubled my planned build budget.
My intended use is a PLEX media server with light use, back up documents and of course PC gaming.
Maximum resolutions and textures and etc. not important to me but I do want to make the game look good and I want the potential to over clock stuff if I want to experiment with that.
Also I live out in the counrty so their is a lot of dust and I wanted a motherboard that I could protect it from dust buildup and that is why I selected the ASUS SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 with the TUF armor.
I think I went a little over board with my build for my intended use but I figure this will last me a long time and should be ok if my uses become greater.
If you got any comments or ideas before I build this beast please leave me a comment.
