Description

This is my pride and joy. It took me just under a year of work to earn this. At the time (being November 2015) this build was about $1700 all up minus periphs. Apparently the price has gone down alot (understandable). This sytem runs like a dream with 8 Gb ram, a beast of a GPU and a nice quad core CPU. I can run most games on max settings and get 45-55 fps (good enough for me, I Play FPS games) and its quite cool when it runs. Cpu gets to only 40-55 centigrade thanks to the Corsair H80i GT and the GPU stays around 50-60 on full load due to its twinfrozer design. I have yet to update the case fans and they are still stock but I have managed to get them to remove excess heat at a efficient rate that keeps my pc reasonably cool. Here are some pictures, enjoy. :P

Hmmm... The GPU stays at 50-60 because it's an AMD card, on cold days my MSI R9 390x functions as a radiator :D

By the looks of it the H440 is a very popular case choice for gaming people, overall your build is pretty dank bud, (upvotes)
