Description

I've owned several laptops before this but I could never justify the budget for a gaming pc so I decided to try something new and build my own pc. Liking the red and black color scheme often associated with MSI and Corsair stuff I followed the tracks of quite a few before me. I set out with a budget of about $1000 usd and managed to keep it down, even with flashy lights and such.

I plan to: -Form and paint a power supply cover ( Cause corsair doesn't seem to understand them yet ) -Upgrade everything... Duh

Part Reviews

CPU

I've only tried to lightly overclock with it so far and I've been very pleased with it. For being a beginner in building computers and overclocking it has performed great for the price. Edit - As of now I've cranked this past the 5Ghz mark with some tuning here and there and some very loud fans. That being said it's settled to 4.5 Ghz for everyday use.

CPU Cooler

Pay attention to the standoff threads, that being said it works amazing and seems to heat my room.

Motherboard

Great board for the price, easy to use bios and it does everything it needs to along with looking great.

Memory

It does what it needs to, I plan to overclock it slightly when I get to it. It also looks amazing

Storage

I picked this up just because I wanted an SSD boot disk for windows and some games.

Video Card

Great card for the price here, The fans never even thought about starting up until I decided to overclock that extra bit of performance out of it.

Case

Love this case, plenty of slots for fans and great cable management, was able to get everything into it with ease. Great airflow.

Operating System

It gets the job done, although I would never pay full price for it.

Wireless Network Adapter

It works when I need to use it, although Ethernet still rules

Case Fan

While they look great and get the job done, they are a bit loud
