So here it is, my very first build ever. Yes I was scared to build this thing because I have never hooked anything up to a mother board. About 3/4 of the way through is when I found the manual to the motherboard showing all the pin outs. (Yes I'm an idiot). But non the less, I figured it out and it worked. I wanted to get and build something that will last a while and take my normal gaming to another level.
I had some people at work give me some advice and I took it and then went another level. I'm happy with the build and so far without overclocking, I can reach 120 FPS on Far Cry 4, 133 FPS on the Witcher 3 and 152 FPS on World of Warcraft. All settings are set at Ultra so I'm pretty happy with that. People are asking how am I hitting that FPS without overclocking... I have no damn idea but I'am. Everything I bought from the motherboard, graphics card and RAM are all able to be overclocked.
So I stuck with an MSI build because I really like the red and black dragon logo. The only red LED lights I have in my case are the LEDs from the fans above, the Kraken cooler logo and I believe that is it.
The only issue I ran into is the case wasn't big enough to place the NZXT Kraken X41 cooler on the exhaust or on top. I had to place it in the front of the case with the tubes down, to keep from getting air bubbles.
I place the fan for the cooler on the outside of the cooler so it is pulling cool air into the radiator. I have 2 NZXT 140mm fans on top blowing in and then the one 140MM exhaust fan. So it basically is a positive air flow and the cooling seems pretty good so far, even under heavy gaming. I believe the highest temp so far was 52C.
I went with the 27" Acer 144hx, 1ms refresh rate with NVIDIA G-SYNC. Trust me this monitor does go up to 144hz, I have seen it in game settings.
