This is my first build but not my first encounter with computer parts and assembly. Originally I was going to go with an I5 but chose the i7 because of what I am going to be doing with this budget Workstation.
I figured the GTX 750 SC would be enough gaming power for now and I might upgrade later but its been flying nice and strong. I had one bad experience however, with the purchase of a Seagate pipeline 2tb hard drive which I later found out was defective. I went with a 1tb WD hard drive instead. At first I had a EVGA non modular PSU but found myself a little cramp in my Bitfenix Aegis when it came to cable management. Despite all the complaints I went with a NZXT 550W full modular PSU and Its also doing a really great job, no issues yet.
Don't know what else to say, right now I have it overclocked at 4.5 but I can take it higher if I wanted but I am playing it safe for now. I have to mention though that the Asrock Pro4M has really easy overclocking choices and options for newbies.

I don't know the cpu and GPU temp under load As I don't know how to check it without going into bios. I know that some use websites or software I just couldn't remember the names of them.
Blazing fast, handles every little bit I have thrown at it so far. Couldn't be any more happy with its performance
Pros: Keeps its nice and cool and its really quiet.
Cons: Hard to install and tubing is stiff but its to be expected.
Easy Bios and quick setup for beginners and would highly recommend it to someone else. Only time will tell how well it holds.
Not much to say about this one. It does what its supposed and really well.
Runs cool (from what I can tell) and keeps up with most modern games. Very quiet and fast! Installation was a breeze and the software was better than AMD catalyst ( I owned an HD7770 It was good but the drivers were horrid)
Quiet, runs nice, decent length in cables and does what its supposed to!
These fans are keeping things nice and cool. They are silent and I have yet to have a problem with them.
