Description

This is my first build and I'm pretty proud of the outcome. It was an awesome experience building my own custom PC and I would encourage anybody to do it. Anyways, there were a few things I needed to have in this build. That was 1.) A really high quality case and 2.) A nice mechanical keyboard. I achieved both of those requirements. I was going to go with the 650D, but the 750D just came out about 2 weeks ago, so I decided to go with that, and I'm glad I did. The case is amazing. One thing I don't like about this build is the 8-pin motherboard cable that goes across the motherboard. This is the only way I could route it without an extension cable(which I will be getting in the future). As far as the CPU and motherboard are concerned, they are only temporary, because I will upgrade both the motherboard and the CPU sometime in the future. So, for those saying, "Wow! Why do you have an AMD processor? Intel is so much better!" I agree with you, Intel is better. But this is a BUDGET PC, and because I couldn't pass $1,100, this was the best choice. I'm happy with the 760's performance. It will pretty much max any game out at good FPS, and the Asus version is really sexy. BTW, I do plan on overclocking but I'm keeping it at stock for a little bit just to make sure the computer runs fine, and I already have a monitor so there was no need for me to purchase one. Anyways, any questions about the build/performance are appreciated. Thank you.

I don't necessarily agree with your comment on intel being better. But I am curious how is the overclocking on that motherboard.

Everybody has their own opinion, and I actually have yet to overclock. But I will write back to you once I do. Thanks for the comment!

Hm, I'm not sure about having spent so much on the case, CPU cooler, and getting thermal paste in relation to choosing your CPU, GPU, and PSU.

This case was in my opinion the best case for me. The CPU cooler will last a really long time, and it keeps my CPU very cool. I didn't know the h110 came with thermal past pre-applied, so I bought thermal paste and I heard that was one of the best kinds. The CPU, GPU, and PSU are all going to be upgraded so I just got the best price for performance components. Thanks for the comment!

The cables actually wouldn't reach if I ran it through the back, I had to buy an extension. Plus, I cleaned up the cables a little bit after I took these pictures. And the case was meant to be a flagship case, because I plan on doing extreme upgrades. Plus, I'm a sucker when it comes to Corsair products. Thanks for the comment!

I took this picture literally right after the build was finished, and the cables were intentionally not managed yet, so I can see if the computer would run. Trust me, I cleaned it up after the fact. Thanks for the comment!

I love how your definition of budget is over a thousand dollars..apart from that its a nice build!

Haha, yeah, I guess seeing all my friends with crazy expensive builds made me think mine was low budget. But you're right, the budget was pretty high. Thanks for the comment!

Not a bad build, other than that power supply. It kind of scares me. You spent good money on your build and a psu like that could fry all of your components. Honestly, you should have taken a smaller and cheaper case (like a fractal R4) and used the difference toward a better psu. And you should try to overclock that cpu to get the most bang for your buck. You have the cooling for it.

The Fractal R4 was in mind, but I decided to go with a good full tower case because it will last me forever, and honestly I'm a huge Corsair fanboy. And as far as the PSU is considered, I know it's not the best, but it's temporary. I plan on getting a Corsair power supply later. Thanks for the feedback!
