This is my first custom build, it didn't take me as long as I thought it would to build it. I love this machine more than life itself.... (maybe).
What are those icons/gauges on your desktop?
It's two rainmeter skins, Honeycomb and Flat and Blurry
i love this build as much as your cable management (good thing)
Hows The Keyboard and Mouse Treating you?
The keyboard is just your average membrane keyboard, fine for right now, I love the backlight. The mouse on the other hand, damn scroll wheel seems to be faulty on each and every one.
Mine seems to be the exception, while I agree on the keyboard my mouse wheel has been fine(knock on wood).
Good for you man. Hopefully it stays that way.
You have what starts to look like an awesome first build, good parts, great cable management! But I can't help to frown at not having a SSD? Over a grand was spent and you oped out of something IMO that would give you the biggest (noticeable) performance increase.! You should really consider getting a SSD. It may seem like a chore but installing it will take under 10 minutes and you will truly enjoy it.
I concur. You can get a pretty decent 120 GB SSD for around 50 to 60 bucks these days. Other than that, it is an awesome build And I love the look of it. Awesome job on the cable management.
Honestly, I don't think I need one. Windows boots in ~30 seconds. And usually when booting, I'm doing other things, (getting changed, going to the bathroom etc.) I'll see what the future holds, but for now, I'm fine where I'm at.
If you want a solid boost for cheap ($45), grab a 64GB ssd and enable intel rapid storage.
You think you don't need one, until you use a system that boots off on SSD and you'll never go back. It improves everything. It's the best bang for your buck as far as upgrades go by FAR.
Very clean build! Great build for the money.
I have that same monitor. It isn't that good though...
****** TN panel, what can I say. Better than playing on a 32" 720p tv though.
haha thats for sure!
you need some sleeved cables and it will be even more awesome, even now it looks great, but imagine white/black cables,
may your temperatures be low and fps high, brother
I will be in the near future :)
