The 8600k is great, honestly I wish I spent the extra and got the i7 for a 100 or so more. But for my current needs the i5 is great. I wouldn’t spend the extra money on a K if you don’t plan on overlooking though.

My other 1tb blue is currently in another build. I was just to lazy to swap it out, when the 2tb wasn’t being used at all.

I play mainly fps games, so 144hz for smoothness was a factor. Also I already overshot my original budget by about a thousand dollars.. in the future I’ll probably upgrade the gpu when I want to checkout 4k gaming. Hope that helps

I had a few extra hard drives laying around. This one being the biggest at 2tb, and 7200rpm. Figured the more storage the better!

Its a nice case. I only wished the hard drive cages were placed more towards the front. Even with a fully modular PSU, I had troubles getting all the cables I needed in.

That's exactly what I was going for. I wanted the best performance for the lowest price. I would of liked to get a better PSU but getting the CX600M allowed me to spend more on other parts. Down the line I would like to get a better PSU, another gtx 760 for sli, and a second monitor.

I didn't have an issue getting the h80i in. It was a tight fit, but its not to bad. The worst part was the tubing is a bit longer then I'd like.

I haven't had any problems running any game I've played yet. I get 60+fps on ultra from what I've played so far. Haven't overclocked the GPU yet because its preforming really well and there really isn't a need to.
