Description

I am upgrading from i3+4GB+GTX650ti. So this is quite a leap for me.

I initially pre-ordered 6700k but I had to settle on i5 after the retailer told me I should not expect delivery within a month. I had all of the remaining components so I couldn't wait.

The chassis is the best I have seen. I purchased it first, few months ago.

This is my first build where I assembled everything. It went smoothly except for CPU cooler installation where I initially used incorrect standoffs. However, I didn't make any effort to tidy up the cables.

Stuff is really expensive here in Pakistan. Roughly 10-50% above the prices shown here. For example, I paid $200 for H110i. Sorry for whining :D

Let's hope I end my Team Fortress 2 addiction and play some games that actually utilize the power.

And God.... the monitor looks tiny in these pics.

They have really really good sound. Can't stress this enough. And they fit the head perfectly. My previous PC produced horrible audio signal so the included USB sound card was useful. However the 7.1 virtual surround seems a gimmick. I keep it off in games and I can still perceive the directions different sounds are coming from. May be I am not feeding correct 7.1 audio via USB. The build quality is good. Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase.

Thanks! It's a few frames behind the best performing GTX 970 i.e. Gigabyte Gaming G1. But I chose this one because of the looks. If you are going for performance, get the G1 because it over-clocks over 1500 mhz!

Nice build Irfan! How you managed to get those parts in Pakistan. Very surprised :) I'm trying to put one rig for my brother, but no idea about computer shops in Pakistan. Much appreciated if you update me with local stores name or address or website?

Thanks! :) I purchased the CPU, motherboard, graphics card, LED fans and the monitor from czone.com.pk; the chassis from shophive.com; the headphones, RAM and H110i GTX were imported via shophive. H100i GTX was available on czone.com.pk but I wasn't interest in that. The local stores in Islamabad only sell junk, they don't have any decent parts available with them :/
