First Build ever. All the parts were pieced together, mostly bought from Microcenter due to great deals on Mobo&CPU bundles (Got my Mobo Half off when I bought the CPU). RAM (Bought at a yardsale) currently running at 1600MHz. The pictures are from the first night it was put together, I bought the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO a week later. I definitely recommend getting a different cooler than stock if you plan on gaming for hours on end. Great performance so far, just waiting on the video card to start some serious gaming. Side note, if you get this motherboard, and use the coolermaster hyper cooler, make sure you use some low profile ram, I have ram with heat spreaders and it causes the fan to not be able to go down all the way.
10/29/13 Cable management re-done, looking great now... still waiting to buy my GPU
11/30/13 Bought a Gigabyte R9 270X, I will update the pictures soon, this card is awesome!
12/25/13 Received a new monitor for Christmas, 27" LG, pure awesome with skyrim.
1/23/14 Bought Samsung SSD and Perixx gaming mouse, both excellent buys.
6/9/16 Sill going strong as day 1. Dealt with many 270X ram issues but AMD seems to have many of those fixed now. Looking to the future to possible upgrade to a Zen CPU.
6/15/16 Found a crazy good deal on a Nzxt s340 case for only $35 brand new on craigslist. Overall awesome case so far, very clean, and roomy.
12/12/19 Finally added another SSD to the storage mix. Ran out of room in the google cloud so bought a samsung QVO 1TB on sale. Also trying out windows 10 for the gaming pc. So far the old hardware is having no troubles with it.
