Hey, This is my first build and I would love here what you think or what improvements I could make. Excuse the dusty Picture and cable management.
The PC is mainly for gaming but I also just wanted a super fast PC as I was fed up on my laptop that took 11 minutes to start (no joke).
Lets start off with the case, The R4 case is Quite boring in design but my goodness its brilliant! Its got lots of room for expansion, 7 fans positions, cable management and its almost completely silent (if you do not use the top two fan slots).
I'm using two x-fired R9's for The GFX, These cards are fantastic and not very expensive considering what they can do. Only Issue i'm having is that due to the lay out of my mobo and the direction of the built in GFX fans is that the bottom gfx card can quite hot if not well ventilated.
I started of with only 8GB of Ram and recently upgraded to 16GB. For this build 16GB or more is what you need, 8Gb just doesn't cut it and your PC will struggle playing new games on max settings.
The Samsung 840 Pro Is an amazing piece of kit! My PC will boot up and be ready in about 10 seconds. Only issue is that they are quite pricey (not that its not worth it) for a decent size so expect your C: drive to fill up pretty fast.
Be quite Power is good, no issues. I am reaching the max wattage now so I will be upgrading soon.
Any questions then please ask!
