I wanted to build a gaming rig that could handle 1440p and high framerates that I wouldn't have to upgrade for a few years. So far, so good. I play RPG's, FPS's, and anything else that's interesting.
The Phanteks case is great for cable management and is very roomy, which was nice for my first build. The fan hub is handy as well, since i can keep all the fan wires out of sight and only have to terminate the one from the hub.
Overall everything went as planned. It posted on the first try, and I'm very happy with it.
