I started this build early september 2014 and I didn't know where I wanted to go. At first I was thinking a cutsom water loop. hence the graphics card change (at stock it performs the same as the STRIX which it was why is was selected). The GTX 980 Posiden is a great card but I will soon ditch it for a GTX 980Ti. I dont think the water block card is of any use to me as I have the silverstone AIO cooler.
When building it it seemed awkward at points, routing the tubing of the AIO and cable management though I tried to keep the cables as short as possible when they came out the grommits. Most of the cables are in the bottom as a lot of people place them there. I've been using this build for the last few months but actually had a CM212Evo as the cooler and it would cook my room up alot. Good winter radiator tbh.
The RAM is slightly different but I couldn't find it. I have 4x4GB clocked at 3000mhz and it performs like a monster! I Highly suggest it. For the price its so much better, just a tad ugly.
There will be a desk update soon which is when I will post more pictures.
PICTURES AT A LATER DATE WILL NOT BE FROM THE CRAPPY iPHONE CAMERA
FIRST SOLO BUILD
Best CPU I have ever used, not the best at overclocking however.
keeps my cpu at a frost bitten 25c. Rose to 35c under full load for around 2 hours.
Good but could be better, the bios seem to be awkward though the EZ tune feature is nice.
Sick RAM, works as intended.
FAST AS GOD HIMSELF, I'm not sure how the 750 Series can beat these.
Good mechanical drive. Kinda loud in my case but it's fine. Amazon's delivery on these has shoddy packaging, beware.
Corsair need better quality control as I needed to fix a couple of things but nothing the realest of real -HH-'s can't deal with! Superb none the less.
had to send the first one back due to the whole thing going dead (white on everything) second monitor is the crispest monitor I have ever used.
Corsair did an RMA on my old which was no longer available but much the same great keyboard and with metal keycaps it looks smexy!
Everything you could wish for in a set of cans.
