Description

I put this PC together a few years ago. Back before I really knew much about building them. The computer runs great and has played every game I've thrown at it. I'm currently making it into a MAME machine (complete with cabinet and Arcade controls) and am looking to upgrade the GPU as well.

When I got the PC together for the first time, it wouldn't power on. I thought the button on the case was bad and replaced it. When it still didn't power on, I bought a new power supply (the original one was a $10 nameless one). After I hooked up the new Corsair PSU and it STILL didn't power up, I checked the motherboard. It was shipped with a CMOS jumper. after putting one on, it fired up.

The H100 doesn't really fit the case, but luckily the case has holes in the top, so I was able to get it to fit, but I had to put the Optical drive lower so it wouldn't bump into it.

What made you buy the 4820k over a 4790k? You don't seem to have SLI configuration or the need for more PCI-E slots. +1 though.

When I was putting together this build (4 years ago) Newegg was out of stock.

you spent a lot of money on a mobo and ram and not enough on a gpu. with 1200 dollars it wasnt a very great build

RAM is expensive no matter what. I agree that I may have spent a tad too much on the motherboard (as I said, it was my first build. The GPU works fine for what I want it to do. I can always upgrade and use the 660 in another build.

I got my 660 for less than $120 on ebay. Just saying.
