Description

Took me about 4-5 hours to finish, the biggest problem I had was with the CPU cooler, I didnt get how to make it fit then I realized the screw is moveable you can move it a bit farther so all the holes align with the mount points I did a lot of cable management in the case, The case comes with two fans which was nice and the easy drive bays helped a lot.

Update 3/28/14 Added photos

Update 3/30/14 Added screenshot with 4.2 Ghz stable.

Got it to over clock stable while keeping temps under 60 degrees Celcius took me about 4-5 hours to get it right running Prime95, and monitoring with CPU-Z and SpeedFan. I tried several different methods I found, a youtube video helped me the most and that kinda help me with a baseline. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9uXysmgPi8 I tried his setup but right away with Prime95 it crashed so I took the multiplier down to 20 then worked in increments and I also lowered the voltage from what he had to keep my temps down. I ran Prime95 for about 2 hours while adjusting settings and it never errored out and the PC didnt crash. I added a screen shoot to my final settings

Update 4/4/14 Was able to overclock more stable multiplier at 21.5 @4.3Ghz Vcore is at 1.27v-1.29v at least thats what CPU-z is reading in the actual Asus Motherboard tool it says 1.325, my cpu temp is lower around 55 at full load with Prime95

4/21/14 Decided to add NZXT LED Fans Dual 120mm Intake, Top Dual 140mm Exhaust, Rear 120mm Exhaust

The mobo is pretty good and a lot of features and options, its a pretty tight fix with the graphics card I chose. Since this is my first build I didnt want to go all out, I was scared to mess things up

The build is balanced, albeit a bit overpriced ($93.97 for a HDD? $55.98 for a 210 Source? $64.99 for a Corsair 600W?). Your paired it well, but i think you should've gone for a 660 Ti instead of the 270X at that price.
8/10, good job.

Yea man, thanks I was a bit in a rush so I choose whatever was available, next time I will do a bit of shopping around.270x is overpriced.
