Description

Had a few "glitches" at first but no problems since the build two weeks ago. Actual build cost was about $600, most parts I had on hand from my old computer.

Not the fastest or the latest machine but works well for my purposes. I'd like to update it to 1151 eventually when I get enough money saved up and add a second 970 for sli. I'll upload more pictures soon.

+1 for the Resident Evil reference, using a backplate of Umbrella Corporation.

Hey man, does the NZXT logo have it's own LEDs? Or do you have LED strips there...?

Any problem with the cooling system leaking or anything? read lots of bad review really doing research before I buy. Thanks

No issues with leaking. When it comes to AIO coolers, Corsair is the best you can buy, not because it will last but because if it breaks or leaks within the 5 year warranty they will fix your components (to a extent). The warranty only covers the AIO, they cover things in a case by case basis. That being said I stand by what I said, when it comes to AIO coolers Corsair is the best you can buy.

How are you liking the CPU cooler? I am thinking about getting it, but don't know how the illuminated tubes look when red, and want to know how it looks. Worth it, or not worth it. Thanks!

I have a problem with the GPU: 1. You should have gotten the FTW+ for 20 dollars more and insanely better core clock speeds 2. the prices will fall on the 900 series when the 1000 series and pascal comes out

There's really no reason not to go 1151 at this point when doing a new build. In many cases you're going to spend the same, give or take a few bucks here and there. I've seen some builds where the builder spent more on the 1150 platform than the equivalent for the 1151 platform. And for what?

How so? The way I see it, even for minimal performance gains, if you're not spending significantly more for the new platform why would you not do that for a better future upgrade path?

Unless you're saving money or you decide that 1150 will get the job done for you, there's not really a good reason at this point not to go 1151.

This is strictly speaking on new builds. Not a build like this reusing parts.

Yeah I was never implying that upgrading was smart in that regard.
