Description

Built purely for gaming. Had a peculiar tendency to reboot on its own after shutting down in Ubuntu, but that problem has not popped up on Windows 7. Only 3 dedicated case fan slots on the motherboard threw me for a loop for a bit, but the CPU cooler slot sufficed for the 4th since this was not an overclock build. Had to mount power supply upside down due to fan being on the bottom of the supply and the case having a bottom-mount for the Power Supply. Scores at a 7.6 on the Windows Experience Index.

Monitor is an LG 27EA31V-B.

Great build! I love my Antec 900 and Will never give it up until it shatters into a billion pieces. (or if it doesn't fit where I need it to)

If anyone else is looking to build a similar computer, I would suggest getting the unlocked processor and the Zalman 140mm Ball cooler for ultimate Overclocking!

Unfortunately, the GA-H87-D3H is not designed for overclocking and I don't think you can actually do it with that mobo (I haven't found anyone willing to say you can, yet).

But frankly, it's a solid piece of hardware without overclocking.

So if overclocking is your thing, you'll want the Z87 Mobo to go with an unlocked processor. ;-)

It's difficult to do good cable management with the 900. It doesn't have the number of passthroughs, nor the space behind the mobo tray, that some cases have.

However, with a dremel, some patience, and some effort, you can make it work:

The bottom mount PSU design is fairly recent. Most cases that have the bottom mount also have a filtered vent opening below where the PSU mounts so it can draw fresh air from outside the case and exhaust its own heat back out the back of the case. Surprised the Antec 900 doesn't have this.

If you get the urge to mod, I would suggest you cut a hole and install a filter and grill there so you can flip that PSU right side up. ;-)

The GTX 770 just died, surprising after just 6 months. Stuck my old GTX 460 from my old rig in as a stopgap, waiting on warranty service from PNY.

I'm beginning to feel the limitations of the GTX 770's 2GB of VRAM, and am currently contemplating swapping it out for something better. Some folks are saying I should wait for the new generation of graphics cards to come out in 2 months.
