Description

I built this machine primarily for gaming, but it works well for many other purposes, too. No problems thus far.

I would have gone with at least 1600 RAM and you definitely need an aftermarket CPU cooler. You did buy a K version processor, so get some cooling and use it! :D

Should have gotten at least 1600mhz ram.

Why did you get two 5400rpm hdd's? You could've bought one 2tb 7200 hdd and saved some.

Definitely underpaid on that case. In this build I would have paid less on storage then got a Fractal Define R4. Also that motherboard is on the high end/enthusiast market, and I think you could've saved $100 by getting something cheaper. Even an NZXT Source 210 would've been a better choice being it has better cable management and just looks better in my opinion.

Have you done all the work on cable management that you could do? A bigger description would be nice.

I also just noticed that you have a a Windows 7 3 pack? That deserves an explanation.

Are you sure those RAM are in the right slots? I think you need to move the first one over one more slot. I have a gryphon and it tells me to do that.

You are correct, in most motherboards with 4 DIMM slots, you put the RAM in every other slot.

Hey guys. Thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely give you guys' advice a go. Definitely gonna go RAM shopping soon. As for the HDDs, I just had those lying around. Also, disregard the 3pack for Windows 7 as that was a mistake.
