I use this build for playing games, mostly battlefield 4, and for all my engineering school work. Runs on ultra setting between 90 and 120 frames. Currently overclocked to 4.2, and running cooler than with stock setting. The 3770K crushes everything in its path, this CPU is overpowered for everything except the Dragon's teeth DLC. . Should have gone with lower voltage RAM, can't overclock this RAM because I can only push it to 1.5volts. The CPU cooler is effective and super quiet. I love the case. It is so easy to work with, runs very cool, and doesn't look flashy or silly. SSD is great, especially with the ASRock Extreme 4 board. Cold boot time is about 6 seconds. Be careful with blu-ray players, they don't always come with software, which can cost a pretty penny.
