First Build- Christmas to myself
by NickRay
Permalink:   (18 comments)

This was my first build so don't judge too hard ;)

Finally got fed up with buying pre-built machines and did my research as best I could and put this build together for myself as a Christmas present. It has been running phenomenal with no complaints at all. No trouble putting this together either took all of a couple hours. The computer itself is running on Windows 8.1 right now and is blazing fast.

I use this mostly for light gaming from BF4 to multiple steam games.

Ended changing to red cables to make it pretty :)

Nice build, nothing too over the top in terms of part choices and you have a nice color scheme going! Your research paid off my friend

+1 and enjoy your new gaming machine :)

Very good build! Nice choice of parts! Where did you buy the sleeved cable kit for $40? Cause I have the AX860 and I want to buy that kit but the cheapest is $79.99

I ordered them directly from corsair for 79.99 and 3 days later they went on sale for 50% off so I cancelled and re-ordered was a steal.

Paid too much for the case, the define XL is 99

NickRay [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 2 months ago

At the time when purchasing everything this case was sold out everywhere....so 20 bucks wasn't going to break the bank :)
