Went smooth as butter. Zero problems! To be used for gaming and other general computer/internet stuff. The cable management is better than in this pic (those GPU power cables gah), so please bear with me until I get some new shots up.
CPU: i5 is the cookie cutter for gaming - and for good reason. Picked it up at Microcenter for super cheap. Love it, runs super fast and cooler than I expected.
Cooler: Running in push/pull. Had some temp problems at the start, but I removed the thermal paste and reapplied and the temps dropped around 7 degrees. The Maximus hero has a cpu_opt fan header which made the second fan (CM Blade Master I believe it's called) super easy to install.
Mobo: Fantastic. Works flawlessly. Has red LEDs and a bright "Start" button that can get a little annoying at night (they stay on even when the PC is powered off) - there's probably a fix for this in BIOS, but I haven't really looked. BIOS menu is very detailed and easy to navigate.
Memory: Doesn't clear the first fan on the 212 Evo without moving the fan up. Also, the metallic part of the heatsinks feel a little flimsy, but otherwise the memory works awesome. Easily got it to 1866 with the Hero. May add 8GB in the future just for fun.
Storage: Definitely went overkill here, However, it allowed me to mount my only drive behind the motherboard and enabled me to remove both HDD cages. Backup is on a WD external.
GPU: Absolute monster. Has some coil whine on WEI and Heaven exit-menu, but has been dead silent during gaming. Runs Bioshock Infinite and modded Skyrim on ultra without a hiccup. The 2GB model would have been fine, and I actually half-wish I bit the bullet here and went with a 780. With this in mind, I will be moving to 1440p (maybe dual monitors) in a few months so I haven't felt too bad about this purchase. May go SLI in the future? Stay tuned.
Case: 10/10. Great cable management room, build process was super easy, comes with a box full 'o screws to help you build.
Fans: Love the Quiet Edition fans. Great airflow, minimal noise, awesome aesthetics. The Performance Edition is easily the loudest thing in my case. I leave it running on the lowest setting, otherwise it makes the PC quite noisy. It moves a ton of air, but the noise is enough to dock a single star. For those less focused on quietness, the fan is definitely a good option.
PSU: Silent (0% fan), whisper when the fan kicks on. Semi-modular and comes with a big bag of cables. Works great.
Windows: Went with 7. Don't know why, I just hate W8. Personal preference here. Got for free through University.
NZXT Hue: Lots of colors! The unit itself is awesome and allows for RGB combinations. There's a few modes ("breathing," color cycle, etc) but I generally run it on the low-medium brightness setting in standard mode. The adhesive on the back of the LED strip kinda sucks, so be prepared with double sided tape and/or electrical tape.
NZXT Sentry Mix 2: Great fan controller. Love the LED colors (there's quite a few to choose from) and the ability to control 6 fans is awesome. The sliders feel solid and the unit is well-built.
Everything Else: Razer Deathadder 2013, CM Quickfire TK (MX Brown/White LED), Asus VH238H.
