So about 2 and a bit months ago i built my first ever gaming PC and as soon as id built it i wasnt happy about a couple of things namely the case and its lack of cable management, (i was using the Corsair Spec-01) and the CPU cooler was quite cutting it after i'd overclocked the CPU to 4.4 ghz.
So alas a fresh case courtesy of a refurb unit off eBay from Novatech and a H80i GT from Scan and my previous build looks vastly differant and i'm a lot happier.
Also bought some braided cable ends for the 24 pin and GPU cable and added some cheap LED's off ebay.
UPDATE: New graphics card purchased. Found a B Grade Founders Edition from Overclockers UK for a decent price so bit the bullit and so glad i did. Very impressed with performance and with a custom fan curve set i dont ever see temps go over 66c.
Lot of misconceptions with referance cards running hot, they do if you dont touch the fan curve, before i changed mine it was hitting 83c!
Next on the agenda will be an improved PSU. Thinking a Gold Rated EVGA 750w. Also not completely happy with the look of the H80i GT performs great but i feel like the twin rad of the H100i would suit the build better.
