This was my first build ever!
So far I couldn't be happier with the performance of this system in game. I'm awaiting to see how BF4 tears it apart.
Just a note for the CM 212 EVO the fan goes on the other side I just moved it while plugging in wires cause my hands are big.
The motherboard works great but I think some ports could have been better arranged. PSU has some pretty short cables that come with otherwise works great. I love how the galaxy case looks that's why I got it period but I had to be creative about wire management.
I do pretty well with temps not overclocking, I hold about 35-45 degrees Celsius while in game with multi-tasking in other windows.
My biggest complaints are windows problems not the hardware.
