Does the gigabyte wireless card work fine on the Mac OS? My brother is considering a Hackintosh mITX build and when I showed this to him he said it wouldn't work, but I didn't see you saying there was any problem with it.

Wait, do you mean Hyperion as in... Borderlands Hyperion? If so, you are the best person ever, I wish I had known about Borderlands gun names before I built my rig.

This is an awesome build, but if you want, you can go to NZXT's website and order a new left side panel with a massive window and no fan grille for your case for 20 or 30 bucks. Hope this is helpful! +1

How are the monitor and keyboard? My brother is considering getting that monitor and I am pondering whether the keyboard is worth the $100 USD. Great build. +1

If it were me, I would've gotten a UD4H and a CM Nepton 140XL, maybe would've bumped up the case to a 500R, or one with a window, and definitely would have let loose a little more on the peripherals, maybe to a Mionix NAOS7000 mouse and Corsair K70 or RGB, also, how's that toshiba SSD doing? I haven't heard too much of their SSD's. Other than these minor gripes, epic build, it's gonna last you a while.

A 4770k and a UD4H with a 660? A little imbalanced. Other than that, awesome build! Hope you enjoy it.

This thing is a monster among monsters. But 2 things, a thousand dollar processor, a 500 dollar motherboard, and 16 gigs of 1866 RAM? If I had that build I'd have at least 32GB of 2133, and the other thing is why did you get the 820 VS the 630 windowed? It would have still been ample in size, have a bigger window, available in same colors, and if you really wanted the hue you could just buy it separately. Like I said, these are minor, this is the best build I've seen in a while, aside from these 2 things, amazing build! +1

1st thing I'd get is a new power supply, my brother has an antec 520w for a similar rig and it's always had problems when doing some intensive tasks, no hurry, just when you have sufficient funds, get a corsair TX series or RM or if you really wanna be safe, an AX series. I have an EVGA NEX650G and it's awesome. Other than that, nothing. Great job!

Oh yeah, and my brother has the exact same board for his old build.

I have the NEX650G, like your 750B, EXACT same RAM and GPU, and I almost got the H100i and the EVO drive. Great part selection, they're gonna last you a while of happiness.

Geez, $130 for a white R4? I paid that for my full tower Phantom 530. Other than that, great part selection. If I hadn't wanted a red build, I would've gone with that board instead of my Z87 G45 from MSi

And if you're really adventurous, take the cooling frame off the ACX 780 (The heatsink and fan stay on, it's just a piece of plastic) and paint that gold.

Awesome build! Maybe later you can take the fan rings and PCI brackets off, then paint those gold as well :)

This thing is beyond epic, Great part selection, but I would've chosen a different 140mm AIO. The CM Nepton 140XL is a much better 140mm AIO, it's solid black, better fans, and comes stock in push/pull, and it's relatively new, so naturally, the software's most likely better. I wish every waking second that I had gotten it over my Kraken X40. That said, this is a great, well-chosen, well-executed build.

Any reason it "deserves" that 1 star? You could've gotten W7 and I think it's cheaper, might at most lost 3 or 4 frames in games

Comment reply on my's Completed Build: Mini ITX Haswell Firebreather

I'd grab some Noctua NT-H1 thermal compound,and apply it in a grain of rice method, it performs 5 or 10 degrees better than the thermal grease Intel includes with their Haswell chips, and wet a paper towel, and get as much moisture out as you can, so it's barely damp, and gently wipe the CPU off for 15 uninterrupted seconds, as for the actual cooler, NZXT, Cooler Master, Corsair, Noctua, and be quiet! are the brands I trust for air/closed loop coolers, I'd reccomend spending a good 45-120$ on a good CPU cooler, do not decieve that little K on your 4670k. Just my input.
