Description

So finally I got around to finally building my self a new system. It's been 7 years since I've had a new computer.... I originally built my first one with my brother and in the mean time I've built a couple of family computers, and a few for friends. This build was a long time coming down the pipe. My old PC was barely holding on.... Lots of crashes and weirdness. But now I can say that I am the proud owner of a fairly high end PC! :)

I'm not completely done with her. As you can tell it has a 550ti (sadly) in it which is embarrassing for a build like this but i will soon be upgraded with maybe a 780 or 290 and then the PC itself will be done.

After I get the GPU the next things that I need to do will be to get all my peripherals taken care of. Things such as new monitors, keyboard, Microphone, and headphones to finish everything off!

Things that I liked about what I bought was that most of them will last me a long time to come and that I can rely on them. That was one of the main focuses of this PC was to make it last a long time and know that it will cause like I said it took 7 years for me to get a new one!

I had a lot of fun building this PC and I really want to build another one but it isn't cheap so ill just wait to be asked to build one!

Hope you guys enjoyed! :)

Nice build and great overclock! I only got my 4770k to hit 4.5 stable. I know Noctua fans are great, but considering you have a windowed case they are just butt ugly. When using closed loop cooling there are many debate on whether push/pull is better on the RAD. However I have not noticed a difference in either setup. I recommend using a pull method so that 1 you will hide your ugly fans and not suffer performance loss, 2 it will be easier maintenance for cleaning your RAD. As your set up now you would have to remove both fans to clean the dust off of the RAD. With a pull set up you just blow or brush it off. Nothing against your build though, looks clean and mean. Hopefully your current GPU is enough for what your doing so you can wait for the new models of GPU from Nvidia and AMD as both the 8xx series and the R9 3xx series should be out Q1 of 2014. Otherwise I belive the 290 or 780 are great choices for an upgrade.

+1 from me.

Thanks for the feedback!

Im actually one of those weird people that like the look of noctua's... But you have good points and they were in my brain as i was building but i have never installed an H100i before this one and i couldn't really figure out what how to mount it in pull... mainly cause it was 3 in the morning and i was stupid tired but i just didnt see any instruction where ever i looked on how to do it, so that is how the push configuration came about. haha

Absolutely beautiful build! I wonder where I've seen something like this before? hmmmm... =)

Two questions though, how is the RAM treating you, and do you feel it was worth buying 2400 MHz?

The ram is amazing, it absolutely rips through everything!

To be completely honest i don't know what to compare it to... I came from about a 7 year old build that my older brother and I did which was an extreme budget build and had DDR2 Ram.... but to me its amazing, and looks good while doing it! :)
