Description

Rev 1- amd 860k & 6850 - not enough power

Rev 2- intel I3 4130 & 6850 - Still needs more power!

Rev 3- intel I3 4130 & msi 270x - gpu doesnt work try again

Rev 4- intel I7 4790k (H60) &gigabyte 280x 3gb- alright... for a while

Rev 4.5 added Samsung 850 evo 250G - ran out of room

Rev 5- intel I7 4790k (H60) & msi 390 8gb - Fallout 4 was announced

Rev 6- intel I7 4790k (cooler master 212 evo dual fan) & msi 390 8gb- h60 was either faulty or not good enough

Rev 7- intel I7 4790k. added full size case

Rev 8- intel I7 4790k. h100i gtx found for $50 on craigslist and i made it fit!

Rev 9- intel I7 4790k. new msi gaming 7 mobo gigabyte one was having issues booting and i rma'd twice no change

the speakers were an impulse buy from target 70% off clearance like $24 how could i say no?

i got the current mobo from microcenter it was an open box msi gaming 5 for $93 i didn't realize it was a 7 til i got home.

yes the rads fans are outside the pc i didn't have enough room, i just made 2 little holes for the wires to go through it works great i have fan mesh coming from china for a more finished look for them.

they weren't really mistakes except for the first 2 revisions i made. and even now there is nothing wrong with it but the next time i have some money and i decide i want something new for my build i'm going to add it. I enjoy playing with the computer itself more than i like playing on it.

It's also costly

it wasnt as costly as it looked i either made money or came within 10% of breaking even on every change. the first 2 changes i made however i returned to amazon for 100% refund

Love the ever enduring upgrades.

I'm in the same boat as you, just starting to get the itch and tinker with my pc again.

Perhaps sooner or later, have you thought about modding a little? Can't hurt as much as a new pc

i think the next big change i'm going to make is a custom water loop another 390 and a new psu. i think if i was going to mod anything i'd like a better starter case. This is a great case don't get me wrong but there isn't a lot of extra room.

I think thats your best bet, I started off witha full tower nzxt switch 810 and its a dream dispite my small budget.

Its very much worth it, besides you probably have a reason why your psu isn't flipped because of your case

my room has carpet so i just wasted it to have good airflow, i killed one prior to this build by not giving it room to breath.
