This was built for a guy who wanted a quiet computer, with solid multitasking ability, and fast boot times. As well as a GPU to play a few games at moderate settings from time to time. He had several requirements for me to put into the build.
Quiet case with a SD card reader.
Processor that can handle many tasks.
$100 in a GPU; enough to satisfy the occasional WoW adventure.
SSD with 2x 500Gb HDD.
Room for future expansion.
He told me he wanted to spend close to $800. I feel that I did this build justice. This case is so quiet I sometimes have to check to see if the fans are even running. It doesn't get nearly as hot as had plagued so many reviews, just remove the top HDD bay. It has great cable management options and cabling was a breeze. The only hindrance was a faulty compression screw on a CM Hyper 212 EVO that sheared in two before I even got close to getting it snug. I have contacted CM in hope of getting that replaced and will be adding that to this build in the near future.
Hope you guys like it!
Twitch I plan to build all of my future builds live on Twitch. I also like to do giveaways for Steam games, so follow me to keep up with all the action!
