I use this PC for online browsing, school work using things like word and powerpoint. I also am planing on using this for gaming just have not made it that far yet. Building was pretty straight forward, however I ran into some trouble with installing the CPU cooler. For the cooler to work with this mother board, first i had to remove the factory mounting brackets on the mother board leaving only the backing plate. Next, i had to put washers in between the backing plate and the back of the motherboard (washers were included with aftermarket CPU cooler). without the washers in place, the backing plate would be loose after installation of the standoffs for the CPU cooler. However, if you use the original CPU cooler that came with this CPU, no extra steps should be needed. For this particular case, when installing the radiator part of this CPU cooler (Kraken x61), the fans will have to be mounted in the very front of the case followed by the radiator behind it. if not, the radiator would hit the connections for the power button, usb ports, and audio jacks which are located at the top of the case.
