Description

Hey guys, I built this PC mainly for gaming, video editing and Photoshop. For the most part the build was very easy until I had to install my graphics card, it was a lot bigger than I anticipated and I thought it wasn't going to fit. In the end I got it in but it was a tight squeeze. Cable management came out decent, there wasn't much room in this case to hide all the wires. I think the only downside to this build is the ugly brown motherboard! That's about it, if you guys have any questions just ask!

Like everyone else I would get the dark knight air cooler or like an H80(120mm rad so you can fit on the back or side to water cool it)

Pretty standard build.

Same for why you made it.

I You should liquid cool your cpu for a cooler temperature.

That case doesn't support a 240mm radiator so I think he would be better of with a dark knight.

You could custom build your own cooler without a radiator...

I don't know what you're trying to say. If you're saying you can watercool without a radiator you're wrong.

You can, just that you need lots of water

Nice build, but you should get an aftermarket cooler for your cpu, even a $20 hyper 212 would be a lot better than the stock cooler.

Good build for what you are using it for. Not a bad price tag on it either...

Great build and good prices, you had some good deals, especially on the Mobo (gotta hate that brown PCB though). A 212 EVO wouldn't be too much though, would help your temps a bit ;)

Good bang for the buck. Agree with the others on the Hyper 212. Let that nice CPU chill a bit.

Nice build, I'd recommend getting a good CPU cooler, possibly the Xigmatek Dark Knight II Night Hawk Edition if you have $50 to spare on a CPU cooler. Otherwise then that, enjoy the build. c:

I noticed a lot of people are spending a lot of money on CPU/GPU but cheap out on the power supply. The corsair cx series is great for budget builds, but when you have a top of the line CPU, a premium GPU, the least you could do is add $2-5 and buy the xfx core 550W PSU which is a much better quality power supply than the corsair cx PSU.
