Description

Designed primarily for gaming with some coding, 3d modeling/rendering, Photoshop and video editing on the side. I built it over the course of a year buying each component separately because i am terrible at saving large amounts. I would not recommend this however as the total price to performance ratio isn't very good. But it runs great anyways!!!

Cable management: I will soon be getting an extension cable for the 8 pin motherboard power connector so i can run it behind the motherboard. I will do some more cable cleaning once that is out of the way.

CPU: Great price for $$$ and perfect for what i need. Overclocked a little without increased voltage because my mother board was purchased when i wasn't planing on after market cooling. CPU cooler: Overkill for this but planning on using it on another pc (which is why its marked as $0) but its in here now and I'm loving it.

Motherboard: One over the first things i bought. I had originally planed on a more budget 750ti build and wasn't going to overclock so it lacks there but other wise great board and is black/gray so fits in with any color scheme.

RAM: two channel, 8gb and blue not much more to say

Storage: 240gb ssd for boot and good games SOOOOOOOO FAAAAASSSSSSTTTTT so glad i got it. There is also a 500gb 5400 rpm thing i wish i hadn't bought and just got a 1tb 7200 but it was cheap so i guess i got that going for me.

GPU: r9 270x. Awesome for my 1080p needs can run everything I've put up against it. Really enjoying it. May run crossfire or buy a gtx970, thoughts?

Case: looks cool, love white cases and window angle makes for great led strip placement. But wish the window showed more CPU/GPU and less PSU will look cooler if i go crossfire.

PSU: More than I need and all I'll ever need. Good, strong reliable.

Windows 8.1: Got as Christmas present (thanks dad), will get windows 10 as free upgrade when it comes out.

Fans/Controller: The fans have LEDs and the controller a LCD screen need I have more reasons (The fans in the part list are green i know, but they didn't have the blue ones when i checked.)

The thing on top is a WD 300gb external hard drive for backups

sorry for spwelign mistakes

It's probably a sign of the weirdness of the people who frequent this site that most of the upvotes I've ever earned come from comments like these.

Supplying your opinions on some computer hardware? Oh thanks, but I have my own DOWNVOTE

I have to agree. Just look at the most expensive build; the post with the most upvotes is a story, lol

Could use some more cable management in the case m8. And other than that, please clean up that desk for +1.

I send this man. Really good, but needs some cable management. Also, 16 degrees under load? Thats 60 degrees F, which is really cold, what's your ambient temperature?

that's why i added the 24C cos the 16 only showed once, i think was an error.

Yeah, its a relic, old roll top for paper accounting and was meant to be temperately in my room (hence the boxes) It's hard to let go but i will have to if I want any space for actual storage (draws are small).

that's what i was getting running aida64 extreme. Is there some better way to check? I'm kinda new to benchmarks. I used to judge it based on how pretty the games look but its not exactly accurate.

The liquid cooler is so big and so close to the motherboard it makes me scared lol. I prefer using NZXT cases for them as you have a lot more room and better areas to actually put the liquid coolers in or in a Full ATX case.
