This computer will be my personal workstation for my architecture studies. Everything went well when my friend and I were building the machine. The problem that we ran into was that we had to take out two of the memory sticks so it would boot and then insert them in after installing Windows. The motherboard is great, the only problem was that it does not handle 3 Terabyte drive ( It reads there are 3T, but you can only format 2T), until you install the update from Asrock. The other issue is the optical drive does not work with Windows Media Player in Windows 8.1 pro. Which I cant understand. They sent me a 3rd arty media player that still would not work, so now I'm exchanging it for my friends Asus Blue ray drive. Other than those few problems the build went really smooth, everything was easy to install in the case. The Corsair Vengeance C70 is a great case with good airflow and room for cable management. My friends really liked it also. this being my first complete build I would say it was a success.
