The build went pretty well. The Seagate Barricuda drive was dead. It would run for a second, whine really loud and then shut down. The computer showed the drive in disk management but you could not access it in Windows or BIOS. Sent it back for a Western Digital which worked great. Also had a lot of trouble getting the mother board to work with the memory. The computer would not boot unless i hit the MEMOK button on the motherboard. Then the memory showed at the wrong mhz. A BIOS update fixed that. After that this computer worked great. Very fast and the monitor is great for gaming, i dont care what anyone says.
