First build post, but second gaming PC i built in 4 years. Upgrading from my old PC which had a Cooler Master 922 HAF case, i5 2500k, and Gigabyte Windforce 2GB GTX 760. My old PC had plenty of power for all my gaming needs, but the noise levels of the fans were starting to get to me. So Black Friday rolls around and I decided now would be a decent time to build a new PC.
The build took about 3 hours. A good majority on the cable management and I still want to tidy up the back more, but for now it's fine. Took out the drive bays to have better airflow along with a cleaner look. Mounted my 3TB HDD on the 5.25 drive bay, right below my Blu-Ray burner. On the back of the board I Velcro strapped my SSD to minimize the cables in the front. I got the non-window version of the Fractal Design R4, which I regret since my build came out so clean, but I am planning on ordering a Window Panel later on. Really glad I got the white LED's for the radiator, thought it really matched the tone of my PC and illuminated a lot of my parts.
Overall really happy with the looks and noise of my build, and was a fun project to do on the side. This will last me a good while before I even consider upgrading again. Great for gaming and really love the clean simple look of it.
Update 10/04/16 Updated the PC since I first built it 2 years ago. Mostly only the looks, and GPU Upgrade. Was considering SLI, but upgrading the GTX 970 to 1070 gave a noticeable improvement compared to SLI GTX 970's. Also made the jump to Ultrawide.
