This is my first build. I had build my parts list on this website and am quite amazed at inputs and suggestions provided by the members on the site. Thanks for making this build possible.
The idea of building a machine originated with the need to have multiple monitors. The laptop I have only supported an additional display.
The Sabertooth Z87 is an amazing motherboard. Love the tough look of it. What impressed me most was the dust defender technology and the fact that Asus provided plugs to close all unused and open ports/sockets. The plugs which fill in the PCI slots give a nice look to the motherboard, which other wise would have had open slots. The AI Suite provided is am amazing piece of software and gives a lot of info and control over the motherboard.
I wanted Obsidian Series® 650D Mid-Tower Case for the build but as it was not available here I had to use the 500R. I am gald that the 650 wasnt available as I like the white 550R now. There was a grill on the side which i managed to replace with a acrylic sheet.
The stock fans were a little noisy so replaced them with corsair SP 150. The machine is very quiet now.
Will add more details shortly.
