Description

So this is my first build, and I am satisfied how it turned out in the end. I still want to add more things to this rig and modify, such as another GPU, LED lights, improving my cable management, and possibly move my hard drive bays more to the left to allow more airflow from the front intake fan. Everything else is pretty solid. I get about 300 FPS when I run solitaire and minesweeper, so that's good. Pictures are also HD in Facebook. This machine is definitely worth the investment for these games. Lol. Jokes aside, this machine runs games smoothly and performs how I want it to. Haven't really tried any of those demanding games yet, but will soon get to it eventually. This machine also performs well and fast with CAD programs I use for school. Overclocked to 4.2 for now, and will soon tweak it in the future. I was initially going to set the CPU's clockspeed to default, then overclock once I get another GPU, but overclocking right now is fine for me. Temps are pretty estimated and will put the correct values on later, but those are its tentative values. In closing, this build is definitely worth the investment for the future, and I am pleased to find this very convenient to own. Will post more pics soon.

I will like to acknowledge my dad for helping me acquire the parts to finish my build. Without him and his interest in my motivation to build this, I wouldn't have completed it. Thanks again Dad. I will build him and my brother one in the future.

4/08/2014 Update - Added some LED's with the NZXT Hue RGB LED controller, and managed my cables a bit. I will soon get sleeved cable extensions!

4/11/2014 Update - Got some sleeved cables!

Only 300FPS?, you won't be able to make those fast decisions in Minesweeper, I would go 3-Way SLI and you could get at least 900.

My kids do all my voting. They want to know how well it runs Angry Birds. Nice case, good choices and workmanship!

I just tried it on google chrome once I read this comment! And it's pretty smooth and fast! My pc specs are pretty over the top for that game. And thanks for the comment! Glad to see your kids having a kick out of this PC building business. Potential computer engineers!

I have an idea. Go on Bloons TD5, and fill up an entire map with tack shooters on Sandbox mode and send out 75 ZOMGs and tell me how much FPS it gets. That is the true test. Nice build!

I doubt that this can run Chess Titans at all. Nice build though! +1
