Used for heavy gaming, leaving multiple chrome tabs open and wetting myself over 144hz refresh rate.
Clean and (relatively) tidy finish on the rig. Very Happy with the way it looks, especially with white light illumination.
Parts all ordered the day before and arrived the next day. Built, tested, Windows 8.1 and drivers installed by just after midnight that evening.
No issues start to finish apart from the fact I thought the thermal paste hadn't been delivered with all the other items. Ended up using the Cooler Master thermal solution. Will probably reapply with Arctic Silver down the line when I can be bothered.
First time building a rig (prior experience upgrading rigs though)
Fan configuration: Top - 2 x 200mm (exhaust), Rear - 1 x 140mm (exhaust), Front - 2 x 140mm (intake), Bottom - 2 x 120 (intake)
Glad I picked a white case. Makes the internals look much neater after cable management. RGB LEDs were a worthwhile investment
Possibly regretting getting an ultra-tower. I forgot how big these cases were! Lucky for me I have a large L-shaped desk!
**Something to note was that I originally intended on purchasing a Gigabyte Z97X SLI mobo but opted instead for the G1 Sniper. My friend who basically is building the same rig but with the Z97X SLI mobo couldn't pass post with a 4690K. Turns out his Bios was outdated despite the fact that other people on this site have the same config and had no issues booting.
Real unlucky for him that he probably received a mobo from an old batch which came from Scan.co.uk
