Description

This is an upgraded build of mine, originally had a GTX 660, MSI B7MA-G43 motherboard with intel stock cooler on the CPU. Felt silly after the original build, because the motherboard did not allow overclocking and I had an overclockable CPU.

Further research and valuable learning lead to me doing a complete upgrade. Got myself an SSD for the OS and the one game I play most, Battlefield 4. I do feel I have made a much more stable and "future proof" build.

Future upgrading will include a better, modular PSU as I would like to run SLI with this card and potentially watercool the system.

Thanks for looking.

Storage is the one thing I see that could have been done better. An 840 EVO from samsung with the same space hovers near $100 that could have saved a hundred dollars. With the HDD for about ten dollars more you could have gotten a whole terabyte. Other than that, nice build.

The SSD cost me £55, and the 500gb HDD cost £29. Got them on Black Friday deals, couldnt ignore it :)

It could be, IF the OP didn't unscrew the fan from the clips and reverse it to be a "pull". It can easily be on that side if the fan is flipped.

The fan is pushing air out. What if I added another fan to the other side for pull?

Did you unscrew the clip from the fan and flip it? Not just move it to the other side?
