I know the feeling. Initially I was only going to build the computer. Then I saw a BenQ monitor I wanted. My old Dell2009W got relegated to secondary monitor duty. Then I decided to get an alienware facts keyboard to replace my Razer lycosa... Funny thing is I'm still using a $25 pair of Logitech speakers. Everything else is pretty much top notch... Someday I'll get better speakers... Someday

Just ordered myself a windowed side panel! A huge case cleaning and fan/hdd cage changing will be going on soon. Pics to follow!

Hello everyone, I'm happy to say that in about a week I will order my new system.
I have been reading this thread since it was on page <100, and I have seen some amazing rigs and mods.
I won't build anything extraordinary, but I would like to join the Club as soon as I'm done with my build.

The reason I'm writing this post, is because I would like some input and tips/suggestions on the rig I'm planning to build;

Case: CM Storm Stryker (ofc)
Mobo: MSI Mpower z77
CPU: i7 3770k
Cooler: H100i
GPU: MSI 680 Lightning
PSU: Corsair AX860i
RAM: Avexir Core series Mpower edition 32GB 1600 (with blue "breathing" lights)
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2Tb 7200
OS: Windows 8 Pro 64bit

Extras;
Router: WD My Net n750
Keyboard: Corsair K90
Headset: Razer Tiamat 2.2


I will generally be using the rig for gaming, and some amateur HD video editing.

Am I prioritising anything wrong (some components to good, while some to bad)?
Love the thread, and you awesome people, happy new year everyone!

Any thoughts will help and if you have any tips or tricks on my road to build my first rig, I would really appreciate it.

Hammer, that processor and cooling system are a great choice in my opinion. I run a 3770k on standard clock with an H80. I am nothing but happy with my setup. Your hard drive and ssd look like fine selections as well. I don't have much to say on the other options you've chosen though and don't have the time to check on their stats but I will take a look when I get home.

H100i is a great choice, however I might suggest looking into the new NZXT Kraken x60 as it's a 280mm radiator and supposedly has the same warranty coverage.

MSI Lightning 680 - I'm going to assume you don't want to deviate from this as most people who buy the Lightning version buy it for overclocking and money doesn't matter. If I'm wrong, I might suggest getting a 670 instead and save $100 and only see about 5% less in the performance.

Seagate Barracuda - I also might suggest a WD Black 2TB only because of the 5 year warranty.

Also, the only way you will ever use 32GB of ram is if you are running Virtual Machines. 16GB is way plenty.

I only make these suggestions based on my findings and for you to save a bit of money or put it elsewhere for more benefit. Welcome!

Decided to try and copy justinwebb on his red glow from the LEDs... didn't quite get the glow I was looking for, but it looks pretty good for the time being (until I get better 5050 strips).

Since I have a CM Storm Trooper, I only have a mesh side panel, so I was just curious how it would turn out (I was thinking about outlining the mesh on the panel and seeing the look that gave..but ran out of patience. Plus case lining would look better if I opt for a window later

I have two Rosewill 120s up front (blue). one CM 200 up top, one CM 140 out back, and two CM 120 on the side panels. All controlled with the Rheosmart 6 (very nifty).

Most of the time it's a dark and quiet case, until I turn up BF3, is when it starts it's jet engines.

Ignore the rats nest of wire management to the left between the two desks.. waiting to pick something up from craigslist for cheap, looking at something like an IKEA Galant!

Obligatory pictures from my iPod.. redface.gif


The rest... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
