My first build and it was bitter sweet. It was a pain simply due to the fact that I'm a paraplegic, so everything took way longer to put together. However everything seems to be working, so that's good. Cable management isn't perfect, but honestly I just wanted to get the thing up and running to see if everything was going to work. Ill go back and mess with it at some point.
It didn't post at first, RAM wasn't seated. When it did post, all it recognized was slot B. Took them both out and swapped them and BIOS recognized both....weird.
Nano S: Man I love this case, it's no nonsense, clean and simple.
i7 6700k: 300 dollars on ebay no tax no shipping- verdy nice. I'm @ 4.6 with a manual vcore of 1.290.
Noctua NH-U12S: I replaced my H7 with this. I'm glad I did, it performs better, way easier to mount and looks way better in person than pictures. Of course I replaced those nasty looking fans with Noctua's NF-F12 iPPC and white anti-vibration pads.
MOBO: Wish it wasn't red, but its not like you can really see it anyways lol. Color scheme is white and black so a little red wouldn't clash . Pretty much all the connections are on the right, making it pretty straight forward.
SSD: Very fast, would of loved to get 1TB, but didn't want to spend that much on a SSD.
GPU: I was looking for a blower style with this setup and I think they look better than NR cards as well. I was looking at either the MSI or the Asus. I picked the Asus because I got a discount for first time JET customers. I'm thinking of getting just a plain black back plate from V1tech. It's just 25 bucks and will clean up that naked looking GPU.
Lighting: I have a single 30cm bitFenix magnetic white led strip at the top and it gave me exactly the sort of lighting I wanted.
