Description

This was my very first build. The story behind the name was that I had a friend that kept calling my computer the "Flux Capacitor" and it just kind of stuck. Anyways I use it mainly for gaming, and needless to say it does the trick. I had a lot of fun building this computer.

CPU: It works great. I did not need something too big or a processor with onboard graphics, so I felt this CPU was a great choice. I had no plans to overclock either.

Motherboard: The reason I chose this motherboard was because I needed something with integrated wireless. When the motherboard arrived a couple of the USB 3.0 header pins were bent, which I was very upset about. However I did not need 3.0 capability so I used a 3.0 to 2.0 connector and connected the to the USB 2.0 header. It also has only one system fan header, so I needed to purchase some fan splitter cables. It works great otherwise.

Memory: It works great, haven't had any problems with it.

Hard Drive: Works great as well, I would have purchased an SSD if I had the extra cash. It will be my next upgrade.

Video Card: This GPU works great. I haven't had a problem with it yet. It takes everything and more while maintaining a nice temperature.

Case: Love the looks of the case. I wanted to make this a red and black build but the LED's on the side of the case (which are blue) kinda ruined it for me.

Power Supply: Awesome. I highly recommend a modular power supply if you are going to be using any mini-ITX case, it makes life much easier.

CD Drive: It works.

Monitor: Love the monitor, really a bang for your buck. However the stand is kind of flimsy, so the monitor moves around a lot.

Keyboard: I purchased this keyboard with the intentions that the keys were backlit. When I received the keyboard, I was disappointed to see that the keys were not backlit.

If requested, I can add more pictures.

That's a great build. I had a couple other things I had to meet though: -I wanted a mini-ITX build -Peripherals (mice, keyboard etc.) had to be included in the price
