Description

This is my first build and I'd have to say it went quite well. It overclocks stable to 4.8Ghz and gets a ridiculous amount of fps. I am still not done benchmarking but it destroys everything I have thrown at it. I built this to be a high end HTPC with the capability to moderately edit video/images. The only problem is now I need to upgrade my T.V.! Once I get a decent 4k my build will truly be complete (will also need to upgrade my internet for higher speed for 4k streaming.) It all works smooth as butter and is ultra quite even though it is air cooled. (Even though it O.C.s high, I keep it at 4.2Ghz for normal use) I would actually call this a $1000 build because I already had the T.V.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

This is a great cooler, I used it because it could just fit into my case. It is quiet, looks good, and keeps the temps low at a great price!

Motherboard

This motherboard does everything it needs to and comes with a great easy to use BIOS.

Storage

Got this instead of a Samsung, don't regret it. It's quality and cheaper.

Video Card

What can I say, this is a great card that comes with great software and even some LED lighting. Destroys all current games.

Case

This case looks great for how cheap it is. It is tight on the non-window side with cables, but I really had no trouble fitting everything in there otherwise.

Thanks, just wish the case didn't leak light around the drive bay but otherwise, I love it!

haha that's kind of what I was going for, after I took the pic I noticed it was off in the other pic but at that point I was already tired of trying to take decent pics with my cell phone so I gave up.

On the main page (completed builds page) there is a button that says "create completed build" press that and import your parts list or make one, it will ask you to put in your stats/comments. Then you can add picture files. You can always go back and edit to your hearts content as well. Hope that helps!
