I originally got this in 2012 as a christmas present. After putting it together I found that the motherboard was doa. no post beep no fan spin up. nothing. So after around 6 months of waiting to get the mobo back from gigabyte we got it back put everything back together and it worked fine. Originally I had an i5 2500k @ 4.5 in here, but for christmas 2013 I got an i7 3770k to replace it because of the hyper threads. Recently I went to go back to my i5 and found that a pin was bent. Overall I love this build, but intend to upgrade this summer to a complete AMD build. The consoles use amd chips and cards so that's what games will be optimized for. Please comment impressions, thoughts, etc. thanks! (also, i didn't build it on carpet/blanket lel, simply pulled it out and had it laying there for convenience)
I use this build for mainly gaming, youtube, and watching movies.
Games I can play max/ultra with above 50 fps: BF4, Titanfall, Bioshock Infinite, BL2, all cods (except ghosts), and quite a few others Games I can play high/medium with above 50 fps: Cod ghosts, Far Cry 3
