2nd custom computer =D Named it after Junji Ito's "Tomie". Planning to tons of stuff with it, in terms of it's appearance such as a paint job etc. Had to put my 970 at the second slot because the mobo showed Code 93.
One random trivia is that the Noctis doesn't support Extended ATX because of it's curved back but still able to fit, just that you can't screw the right side of the mobo. That also means I have to route the PSU cables over the HDD space since the rubber grommets are obstructed by the mobo (refer pic 6).
Installed the 1 Corsair AF120 (for the heck of it) for more heat dissipation, reduced 2~5°C.
*/ CPU: i7-3770K
Motherboard - Asus Maximus V Extreme (Z77)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB, the other one can't work. Planning to get another 8gb from Avexir.
Got the CPU, Motherboard, RAM and air cooler at 2nd hand for $278. It came in with a free NZXT Tempest Elite but I gave it away.
GPU: EVGA GTX 970 SC. Intended to get a GTX 770 for $250 but decided to get it from someone selling it first hand for $300. That is also the reason why I didn't get a R9 390.
HDD: WD Red 3GB. I download lots of stuff and need loads of memory. Also got it due to the increasing file size of games. Got this instead of the Blues or Greens cos I got this for $30 cheaper.
SSD: Crucial M4 that I used for my previous computer. Works pretty well, considering to get another one from either Samsung or Intel. Maybe even Corsair.
Case: NZXT 450. Original plan was for a NZXT Phantom 530 but the 450 teaser came and I waited a few months for it. Really loving it~
PSU: SeaSonic 760W 80+ Gold. This costs 3 times more than the budget PSU I had in mind which was like $50 but I decided a good PSU would have better value in the long run.
Monitor: AOC 24 inch IPS, good value.
Keyboard/Mouse: Ducky Zero TKL Brown Switches because Corsair doesn't make Brown K65s. Got the Mionix Naos 8200 from Massdrop and is my favourite mouse I've ever used.
More upgrades intended, so I'll have to part-time during my next break. */
