Description

After months of saving! Now i'm an xbox gamer and have been for some time, but rewind 3-4 months ago when microsoft unveiled the xbox one and it's controversial features. i knew it was time for me to finally make the jump from console to PC. I have nearly completed the build just need me SSD and HDD. So without further ado. here is what i have come up with. - just a side note battlefield 4 recommended 3gb graphics card so i decided to go with the 4gb
comments welcome !

You're pushing hot CPU air onto your GPU. Great build.

^ Yup. Flip it over so it is venting the hot air out the top or sideways so it is venting out the back.

wow thanks for the great response! i certainly don't think this is a "sick" build lol thanks for pointing that out about my cpu! unfortunately the build isn't quite ready :( i still need to buy my HDD, SSD. (Buying today) i will post benchmarks, and do some overclocking! but please be patient as this is my first build and i'm still learning thanks for looking updated pictures !

Love the build. Love the case even more. I keep trying to find another case that I like as much as I do the 300R, and it simply cannot be done at it's current price.

Excellent build! The only part I'd question is that cooler -- but that's partly out of ignorance. How's it performing? Keeps things cool? Is it quiet?

I know this cooler. Was actually looking into it before I decided to go with liquid. A friend has it on his i5 2500k. It's very quiet and cools great. He OCed to 4.5 at max load 76 Celsius. I've seen people report lower temps, but the temps I'm report to you are after "proper" full load test.
