A birthday present for my wife, this is my second build ever. My wife loves Pandas, so I thought that would be a great theme for the build. I tried to stick to white and black colors. Overall the build came together fairly well, with the biggest issue being the lighting.
I decided to make her a computer at the last minute and thus rushed on the parts I bought. Some thoughts/reasoning behind the parts selected are as follows:
Motherboard: Initially thought the board was black from the pictures. Overall did not like the layout and location of a few plugs. Found this board to be much harder to manage then my Z87 Sabertooth.
Video Cards: Never did an SLI build and wanted to give it a try. Like the fuller appearance in this full tower.
Power Supply: Initially wanted a lower power supply (Obv 1000w for this build is not necesarry.) However, to keep with the white and black theme, this was the only available watage in stores.
NZXT Sleeved LED Kit - White: Found this to be the hardest thing in a build. With top, side, and bottom fans there was hardly anywhere to run the lighting without it looking tacky. The stick tabs they give to hold the wire up would consistantly fall. As such I switched to zip ties which made it even harder to place.
Overall I am proud of the build, aside from some minor details. Let me know what you guys think!
EDIT: The PSU has been flipped to the correct way. The case does have a dust filter, and I clean all of my hardware once a month.
