I finally went ahead with my first ever build. The process was fun, if a little frustrating at times. But I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, and loved building in the Node 304.
There is still some cable tidying to do, a storage drive to be added and I may have to change the cooler (the cables on the HD audio connector are very very close to the cpu heat sink not sure if this will prove to be a problem, has anyone else experience this compatibility issue?)
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo but the SSD is mounted under the front fan filter using velcro.
The Seasonic G Series is a great power supply and I had no compatibility issues at all. The modular connections are low enough to fit under the GPU.
I will be using the system for gaming, web development, content creation and Adobe creative suite design work. Basically I wanted it to cover all the bases.
So here it is, my first effort:
CPU: i7 4770k GPU: MSI R9 290X Gaming OC edition PSU: Seasonic G Series 650w MOBO: ASUS Maximus VI Impact RAM: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866Mhz SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250gb CPU COOLER: Noctua NH-L9i CASE FANS: 2x Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM, 1x Nocuta NF-A14 PWM
Sorry for some of the photography, it got quite late towards the end of the build.
