So frostbyte was my first gaming rig that I build in August, but never got around to uploading here. For my first build, it went extremely well, with no complications. Now I know, I should add an SSD, but I have no need for one currently, as I really don't care how long it takes for my PC to boot up, as long as it's under and hour :) The GPU is overclocked to 1541 on the core, up from 1171 base. Still stays pretty frosty. The Corsair PSU hate is going to live on, but mine hasn't exploded yet....YET....(pls dont :( UPDATE: Bought a Corsair HXi 750i, it's amazing. Before building frostbyte, I had an Alienware Alpha i3 version. It was nice and all but was severely underpowered because the 860m throttled back whenever you went near anything such as a game. That, combined with the appallingly slow 5400RPM 500GB HDD that ran out of storage faster than California ran out of water made me want to build my own PC. I had to sell my Alpha and XBONE (yes, I call it that, get over it) to join the GLORIOUS PCGAMING MUSTARD RACE.

Non-K. It was like $140 at MicroCenter, which was less than the 4460 I was originally planning to put in. If I pick up a 4960k on black friday or something, then I will get an NZXT Kraken CPU cooler for it.
Black and White, pretty frosty. Almost as much as my soul. Anyway, it's a nice motherboard. No SLI bridge included, even though it is an SLI mobo. Strange...
When I bought it, this RAM was $35 on Newegg. It looks incredible and performs well. May add two more sticks in black to match the build.
1000 whole wheat, free range, grass fed, cage free, grade A, organic gigabytes of storage on a spinning platter. Its not the fastest, but for the price, gets the job done very well.
Immediately after ordering this off of Newegg, I saw the 4GB model from Gigabyte for 15 dollars more. This card doesn't have any side lighting though. It's really annoying. May SLI in future.
Nice case. Very white. Probably should have gone with H440 because it looks so much cooler, but the S340 still looks incredible. No external 3.5 inch drive bays though. PSU shroud is nice.
Hasn't exploded yet!!!
