Description

I use this machine primarily for gaming and was slowly adding things to a store bought hp p7-1047 quad core computer, but then decided to upgrade and just make my own pc and this was the result of my first build. Planning on getting ram within the next few weeks as well as overclocking the cpu, I am still testing and getting comfortable with the h100i cooler and its normal operating temps. For all the haters on the 270x I can run Arma 3 epoch mod with 40 fps stable on ultra settings. Every other game is cake for the system.

The only hate now is that cable management. Sir, that is a crime. Seriously

Agreed, I wouldn't tolerate it since the case offers cable management unlike mine. Seriously, cable management is not that much of a chore, well it took me 15 minutes but having a clean PC with good airflow makes a happy PC.

having trouble with cable management as some of the psu wires aren;t long enough to reach, I have since ordered extensions and splitters and will be re-wiring and cleaning it up.

also, I think the back panel has very very little space My buddy's build looks the same because of the length and case constraits

Possibly one of the worst cases of cable management I've seen recently. You might want to spend an evening on re-routing and cleaning up your cables.

Admitted, it might be harder to be bothered with it if you have a case without a window, but it just improves airflow and makes swapping out parts (or adding RAM in your case) later on a lot easier. The case has double plating, so you might as well use it.

He/she said the cables weren't long enough and extensions are already ordered.

Hey, i just bought these parts to make my PC.

Only the video card is different, my video card is GeForce GTX 550ti.

But a lot of people was saying to me, to change this Power Supply because ain't 80Plus. And they say, this Power Supply will burn my PC. Remember this isn't the 80Plus Bronze. It's another model.

So can i use this Power Supply? I don't have money to buy another. Do i have any risks with this?

This power supply is the only recycled thing on this build has been working fine on this build as well, my last computer had no problems either. You should be fine, however a modular power supply makes for a much much cleaner build and I will be upgrading it as soon as an awesome deal comes around
