! I'M IN THE PROCESS OF REWRITING THE DESCRIPTION !
I use this machine for gaming, software development, and general-use. Works really well; no major problems.
I already had any parts listed with a $0.00 price prior to the build.
So far, I haven't encountered any issues with parts that have 5-star ratings.
I gave the CPU cooler 4 stars due to the fact that the Corsair Link software just completely sucks.
I gave the motherboard 4 stars also due to minor software issues regarding MSI's Command Center not saving fan speed profiles after a restart.
I absolutely love the video card; however, I removed 1 star due to a minor coil whine while playing certain games.
Windows 8.1... I'm probably the minority here, but I think it's actually quite good. I only took away 1 star so far due to minor complaints regarding GUI elements and the lack of a few minor customization options on the Start screen. However, I'm still new to this version of Windows, so after some heavy-duty usage I may or may not remove more stars depending on my findings. Only time will tell!
I have the fan hub mounted to the inside of my case's side panel for the 4 intake fans, as it's much easier to only worry about one fan header versus four.
Green drive is for backups and extra storage.
! STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS !
I just recently purchased the SSD, so it will not be reflected in the pictures.
I also replaced the stock fans on the CPU cooler with two Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans. Therefore, this will also not be reflected in the pictures.
I do plan on buying red individually-sleeved cables soon. Once I receive those, I will take new pictures.
