Description

First time building my own computer. Went for air cooler instead because water cooling is so common and i want my build to be different from others :D any suggestions?

Your rig looks extremely good! I almost want a copy of it! :-D

I have a question about your monitor: what is that monitor stand? I really liked it and it looks almost like it's flawing in the air!

Considering black and white theme of the rig, I would pick a Galax GTX 970 Hall Of Fame edition card. It has a white PCB and look outstanding. And here it would really benefit from it's gorgeous looks.

Nice job man! Finally a really good rig! Thanks!

no suggestions needed pretty well thought out build, a description on parts picked and what you'll use it for would be great, i'm guessing you purchased those sleeve'd cables separately?or sleeve'd them yourself?, +1 for air cooling & black and white mono theme.

hmmm...don't wanna sound negative here but i'm pretty sure your not suppose to buy different cable brands and use them on a different
PSU because of wattage compatibility with the sleeved cables and the
original cables..but then again if nothings goes wrong guess that works..

+1 on parts choices. I can't say I'd change anything as I have an extremely similar build.

I really like the overall look. The monitor stand really sets it off from the rest of the setups out there.

That looks super clean! I love it! Did you sleeve the cables yourself? I am going to sleeve my PSU later today! This looks beautiful and the fact it's your first build makes it even more impressive. What are using it for?

How did you use new sleeved cables on a CX psu? The 24 pin isn't modular on those... I'm so confused

its an extension cable so it will fit :D

So even if my psu isn't fully modular I can still use the cables if I use them as extensions? You're totally making my day right now.

Does the graphics card sag?

This is your first build? Wow. The cable management is flawless. I bought the same sleeved cables for the GPU & MOBO from Silver stone and can't wait to install them. I did however buy an AMD Motherboard but I'm having second thoughts on just switching to Intel. The FX-8350 vs the i5-4690K performance wise seems worth to shell out some extra cash on the CPU. Great post man!

Is the Dark Rock 3 blocking the first expansion slot ? Can you install an audio card in there ?

Yeah how much clearance is there around the CPU cooler, I'm looking at getting the same cooler and motherboard. Is there enough space for 4 memory modules? and also could you fit in a wireless network card above or under the graphics card?

So hey dude i dont know if you read this, but I REALLY want to know which LEDS or what kind of light you used for this build! Can you answer me and say me where you bought them and how much you paid?
