Very nice build!! but whyyy did you go with the Kingston SSD?? you could have gotten a much better ssd for similar pricing

Uber tidy...well planned layout. Overall solid build with those components. Not a fan of the SSDNow though..but good value for money when used for OS only and loading apps.

Nice build! Just for the future though, that SSD performs horribly compared to it's similarly priced rivals. It is one of the slowest SSDs. I recommend a Samsung 840/850 EVO or a Kingston Hyper X Fury/Beast. Other than that, a great build! Looks awesome! +1

In this case it is behind the motherboard tray.

I like the case. A lot. Jealous. SSD is a strange decision though.

what brand of PSU is that? o.0

It is a Sentey. They USED to make good PSUs. This is an older model that is based on a Super Flower platform and is pretty decent. DO NOT buy their newer stuff though. It is no good at all.

thanks everyone for the compliments! The hdd was a quick "get the computer up and running" purchase. I'll be picking up a few more during the black friday sales.

Great build! I'm in the middle of a similar build, have to pick up a monitor and a H100i GTX (which I hope I'll be able to fit it in nicely at the top of the case like in your build). Best of luck finishing it off!
