Hey Everyone! This is my first build ever my wife and I put it together. The name stormy is a cheesy one my wife and I came up because the case looks like a storm trooper armor :D. I got some great deals, including Black Friday and Cyber Monday if you a are wondering about the part pricing i have. I'm still making the final touches regarding configuration specially with that Corsair H100i pump, because if you want to use the Corsair Link Software, windows 8.1 won't recognize the device so you have to change some values on the windows registry for the USB header where you plugged the H100i cable. Here's a guide for that. *http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2062894/corsair-link-recognize-h100i.html* I had some trouble getting the corsair h100i pump into the case. At first, i thought it wouldn't clear the ram/motherboard if i kept the stock 200mm top exhaust fan that came with the case so I uninstalled it. As it turns out it wouldn't stay completely flushed with the top part of the case, even with the fan out so i decided to try the mount that came with the NZXT case and to my surprise it fit just fine without interfering with the ram or Mobo heatsink. For other noobs like me out there: make sure you plug in your power's supply 8-pin cpu power cable **before** you install the the pump. I had to take it out because i had forgotten to do so.
I haven't done any overclocking yet since I'm really new to the whole concept, even thought it looks fairly easy to do with the Asus AI suite included with my X99-A :). Also I'm looking to do some bench marking so if anyone has any suggestions that'd be great.
Hope you like Stormy Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions!
