Description

I use this machine for gaming, I recently added the Cooler Master Seidon 120XL 86.2 CFM Liquid Cooler (to allow for overclocking) and the NZXT Fans (to give the machine a Razer theme).

I will be looking to replace the CPU and the Memory in the future; however, in the meantime I'll be working on finding a stable overclock speed for the CPU. I'll start with the Memory as it has the lowest score in Performance Test.

Any comments, suggestions, or ideas you have will be greatly appropriated.

Pictures of the completed build will be coming soon(tm).

I see lots of cables from a PSU I don't like. I see a floppy disc reader >:0 The CPU is fine, you should replace the GPU well before that.

Thank you for your comment. When you say you see cables from the PSU you do not like, what do you mean exactly? Tight corners, twisted bundles, you see them and you dont want to see them at all, etc.

Thanks. I'll look into the GPU

Sure. I am not a fan of that brand of PSU. At least it wasn't a super terrible one, but I still don't like it. Also, cable management. It may be rough, but overall it makes everything much nicer and cooler.

It is just a poor choice of PSU. Not modular, ugly cables and poor quality overall.

You should sort out the cables a bit better as well. That case has decent cable management features.

I'm not sure why this build got so many downvotes.

One stick of RAM rather than 2 to run dual channel memory.

Overspent on hard drive, you can get a 2-3tb unit for just a little more.

Non-80+ power supply. EVGA's new 80+ bronze PSU's are in the price range of that crappy CM one, to name one example of something that'd be better. There are plenty more that would be better options than the one he chose.

Windows Ultimate instead of spending 90 more on a better graphics card.

Even so does he really deserve to be in the negatives?

The negative is to indicate that people don't like something about his build. In this case, there are too many problems for me to give the build an upvote or to even keep it neutral.

We aren't trying to be jerks, it has problems, I'm not going to upvote something I don't like and if it has a problem, that's more or less a guaranteed downvote.

Exactly right.

We are not trying to be aholes..we just want to warn others not to follow a poor build when making their own when for the same price they could have gone with better options.

Yes.

There is really no excuse for that PSU and several other features are also poorly done.

We don't want people following his example and making a mess of their build like this so therefore he gets down voted.

I'll never understand why people buy a HDD that is expensive as all hell and holds less storage than a HDD that costs a lot less and holds more storage, but performs just as well.

320Gb at 70 bucks? damn. Floppy disc drive. Nice addition. Not too bad, could have been better though
