Thanks to all those that helped me decide on parts for my build! Overall it was a fun experience to build my own computer and now I want to tinker on it all the time. I mostly use this computer for gaming (it's amazing to use ultra/high settings) and for multitasking on three screens (watching twitch, playing a game and business). Nothing is oc on my build I might get into that later. Note: I just number my computers K1 K2 K3, no special meaning.
The most troublesome/concern is still about the case, over all it is a nice case and I might consider buying one again if I did another complete build. Mainly the rubber grommets inside kept falling out while doing the cabling and at one point I just gave up on putting them back in properly (the metal for the slot is not sharp and is nicely beveled anyways). I was very careful in taking off the plastic exterior to get at the case fans, you must take care in pinching the plastic clips so it comes off (I read many reviews saying people would just try to yank the covers off and complain about the clips braking). While having two hard drive bays, one removable is a very nice feature, the actual slots are made of super flimsy plastic with little pins that are seated in rubber that slide in and out of the bracket easily (feels super cheap and not well thought out). As for airflow/fans this case is really nice with support for 3 140's (or 120), 3 120s and a internal 120 on the hdd enclosure. The one thing I loved as a first time builder was the cable management on the back, it is very forgiving to someone like me.
I don't have a picture here, but I chose red top fans to represent the hot air outflow and I will probably be replacing the case fans that were included with blue ones to show cool intake (only the top 140mm that came with was blue, moved it to the side panel).
As for the windows 8 vs 7, I really wanted to stay away from 8, but hearing about the gaming advantages, direct x updates and I help family with windows 8, I thought it was about time I familiarized myself with it.
Some upgrades to be made soon/in the future.
CPU Cooler - The stock is crazy noisy so even though I am okay with the temps running I might be looking into getting a cooler master 212 or corsair H55, if anyone has some suggestions in the $20-60 range I would appreciate it.
Moar fans :D
I will most likely buy another graphics card to sli when the opportunity presents itself as my first true upgrade.
Might add more pics later .^
