Well I am finally getting around to posting my build. Sorrynotsorry. It was originally built back in September but I haven't actually posted the build until now, between school and work I just simply haven't had time. Although, I have had the time to play some games haha. I bought the desk and chair when I bought the components so I included them in the part list because it was a necessity to even build the computer, since I didn't actually have either.

Sorry for the potato quality pics, I only have my phone. Cable management is kind of bad because I rushed and got lazy haha, maybe I'll go back in and tidy up a bit soon, but for now it works great. PC runs games like a champ, never really had any problems. CPU runs a little hotter than I would like it to because I haven't really gone in and messed with the settings and CorsairLink is being a jerk. Running Windows 10, not too impressed with it, I'll probably go back to Windows 7 soon.

Anyway I hope you like my build! Spent a lot of time (and money) building this bad boy.


Part Reviews


Runs great, especially for the price XD

CPU Cooler

Bought for $120 on amazon, can't figure out how to edit the price. It works like a champ though, as soon as I get the right hardware I will be mounting some more fans and running it in push/pull


Definitely an easy choice, this motherboard is perfect for what I need, only wish it had more fan headers. gr8 r8 m8, I r8 7/8


is ram, of work fine. need nothing else describe


This dude has been giving me problems. I dunno if it is on my end or not, but apparently it didn't come formatted in the right way for me to run my OS on it, trying to fix it soon.


is hdd, works like suppose. very nice

Video Card

Was between this or a 970. This was cheaper at the time and according to reviews ran better than the 970. Plus it's red and black, so it went with the theme nicely.


Had my eye on this case from the start, only other case I wanted was the Corsair 780t and I believe I made a great choice, this case came with everything I needed. Plus it's pretty darn slick.

Optical Drive

Works like it's supposed to, nothing else to be said.

Case Fan

Works great, just wish they LEDs were a bit brighter :/

Case Fan

Works great, have it running exhaust out the back of my case. LEDs are sick.


For the price, I absolutely love this combo. I will be using this setup for a while and will recommend it to anyone who needs a new keyboard/mouse combo.


Sound quality is great, had no idea cable was so f*&$ing long though haha, but definitely not a problem.

There is a chair in the pictures? I guess I'm looking at the "curves" and noticing the "shoes"

I have a windows 7 disc, so I just bought a windows 7 product key and got the free upgrade to Windows 10!
