Built this to replace my previous computer I built (back in 2007). It was an AMD 64x2 with 12gb ddr2. Actually was still running well until the motherboard went this summer.
Anyways.. the new build is a beast in a small form factor... exactly what I wanted.
My goal for this was to build an efficient lightroom picture processing pc (and be able to do some 3d rendering/gaming). My criterion was to have it be quiet, stable, and cool (temperature and looks!).
Love the case... made building a breeze. Clean lines, small footprint, and good enough room for my needs.
Using my old 9800gtx+ for now. Eventually I will upgrade the video card but for now it is fine.
Intel 730 SSD and i7-4790k combination is killer (also got an awesome deal on them with Intel employee pricing).
Cooler is prob overkill, but it keeps the chip at 25°c at idle and just under 60°c at load (intel burn test). And this is in corsairs quiet mode so I am very satisfied.
Hope you enjoy. I had a blast building it.
