Description

this is my first build had no major issues just when i was tying to get it going it took a few attempts because i didnt connect the CPU power then i ad no keyboard but it is working great now i only have Minecraft and GTA IV to test it but they both work great.

i have improved the cables in the last picture. still a few for the USB 3.0 below the graphics card but they are too short to go behind

I admire your green approach to cable management. I too was considering making a habitat inside my case for wild-life, but I'm just a terrible person and decided against it.

You have good parts except I would never get a Toshiba HDD. Aside that, as I just said, good parts, good deals also 600 to 650W would have been enough. My single advice : please, dear god, work on this cable management.

I believe that Toshiba HDDs are extremely unreliable. A while back, my dad bought a $600 Toshiba laptop to use around the house. A month later, the hard drive corrupted and he lost everything. He has bought another one and that one broke too, same hard drive problem. Now he has an HP laptop that he got assigned from his office, it has a 256GB SSD, and he hardly uses 100GB, so it's way overkill, and nothing wrong has happened since he switched from Toshiba... and that's why I don't trust Toshiba :)

Well, I work as tech.. And as soon as I see a Toshiba you can bet than 9 times out of 10 it's the HDD.. Sad but true. That is why I made that little point there ;)

I got one on sale at Microcenter really cheap. 2TB and I've had no problems at all with it. I don't use it as a primary drive, just as a backup, but it has been running for a while with no issues.

Well I hope it will stay that way ! As I said it concerns mostly laptop's internal hard drives not external nor 3.5" drive as far as I know. But I wouldn't buy a HDD even a 3.5" from a company which has a known problem precisely with Hard drives.

I wonder if all the hardrive problems are in laptops...I have a 2TB one and have had no problems with it in my desktop

I KNOW that case has the potential for GREAT cable management, so I'd REALLY like to see it utilized to its fullest. Good parts list for the most part, that said an MSI MPower board would have been just as nice, cheaper, AND gave you built-in 802.11n + bluetooth, and it's a pretty great board as well.

Yeah I'm on board with these guys. You just dropped 1700 hundred big ones on a PC. Make it look like 1700 bucks.

All this just to play minecraft and gta vi ? lol

And you could've done better with money distribution.

Part choices are fine. Just work on your cable management a bit and you're golden.

Now get a CPU Cooler so you can OC. Otherwise no real point in K and Z CPU/Processor

I'd suggest trying to get some cable management since your case is beast and I would recommend getting an aftermarket heatsink fan just so you keep things cool, have fun playing those mods on GTA 4!

BEST BUILD FOR THE MONEY BRO. Just make sure later on you get an aftermarket cooler. It would be nice to make this a 4.2GHZ or somthing.

He/she bought a really good overclocking mobo. I hope to see that 3570k reach 4.6GHz+

You need to manage those cables, And I'm not sure if you really needed a $230 mobo, a blu ray writer, as you haven't explained what you're using it for. Also you could have gotten the same RAM for around 20$ less nice in guess

the power supply you have listed is different than the one you have in your case, you have a CX750, but i see a TX750 in the pricing. i see 3 hard drives mounted? what are those? I don,t see the SSD, is it in the back? that nice mobo and processor, and you left the cooling stock? cable management is terribad. probably the worst ive seen in a nzxt phantom. this whole rats nest for 1657$ ?

Cable management could be better, but good build

This build doesn't make sense, and you have the wrong ram selected. In the pictures looks like blue corsair vengeance to me.

thank you for feed back i will pull it apart and fix the cable management issue the Toshiba HDD is a spare for games the OS is on the SSD i will get more games in the future. the Blu-ray is for movies. yes i selected the wrong PSU and ram. all the HDD one is an old one from my old pc and the other is from a media player that the external power plug broke.
