Description

This was my very first build. I built it primarily for gaming, but also for some light video and photo editing compliments of my wife. I chose the i7 mainly for the video editing aspect, and I chose the memory because I got a good price. I went with the noctua cpu cooler because liquid cooling makes me anxious. Everything else is pretty straight forward. Already looking forward to the next build.

If you went for 8GB and an i5 4690k, you could of gotten a GTX 980. +1

Does it really matter? Either way it's still overkill.

Nice build, BTW. +1

I with the people over at noctua would at least offer different colors for fans because MOST of the fans they have look horrible, but in terms of performance, are the best you can buy. Kind of an unwanted trade off.

Yea I was really torn when selecting a cpu cooler. I knew noctua was a great cooler but it does nothing for my build aesthetically. love the cool Temps my i7 is running though.

the noctua is a great choice, good overall quality, but since you got an unlocked CPU wouldn't it be worth it to spend the 20 extra dollars and get an water cooler, like a Corsair H100i?

These come very close to CLC performance while being much quieter*

Wondering why no large hdd to deal with storage other than system files. Also curious if 4 sticks of ram would fit with this cooler, looks tight. Nice build! +1

nice build, i would just take out those drive cages if all you have is that ssd. mount it on the back of the mobo or somewhere else and give yourself some more airflow.
