me and my friend built this, it runs fine and I plan to do some overclocking.
For almost my whole internet life I have been using integrated graphics on laptops and such, so I felt the need to build a proper gaming machine to play all my games on(some games would not run on my old laptop so the upgrade was necessary.)
I know the cable management was pretty bad but all things considered it really could have been a lot worse, I am, however experiencing issues with the computer(the case and USB 3.0 header, on the mobo in particular.) for one, no matter how hard I have tried looking, I cannot see any USB 2.0 cables anywhere with the cases cords, and the USB 3.0 cord does not seem to fit inside of the socket for some odd reason...however I can really do without them if I need to...since I got more on the motherboard.
I did intend to overclock the CPU when I was picking all the parts out, however I have not felt the need to yet(plus I would rather do it with more information about it before I take a crack at it...ill look into it later) I plan to play games such as Battlefield 3, saints row IV, crysis 2, dead island Darksiders 1 & 2 and more, although I might add another GPU if games become more needy.
have not done much stress tests yet, max temp I got so far is around 75°C but I would not consider that "under load" but meh.
TL;dr(or did not care) use it for gaming, lovin it, having a few issues but nothing major, might upgrade more later.
UPDATE: Overclocked it to 4.2GHz and im loving it :D Max temp I get is around 60°C underload (well during prime95)
UPDATE 2: Added a 2TB hard drive to it.
UPDATE 3: Added Sound Card & better Headphones, overall after playing stuff on it for a few months this computer has been absolutely superb for me runs everything pretty well and I have no regrets, I am loving the addition of the sound card as everything sounds amazing, and the addition of the 2TB hard drive seemed to be worth it since my steam library in total would cover almost 1TB meaning my 1TB would not cut it for extra storage, it has never overheated on me yet, and the only time it has crashed was during a failed overclock on the GPU, I am really happy with this PC.
UPDATE 4: Selling my GPU off to my friend and upgraded to a GTX 770 2GB and have cleaned up the cables.
