Firstly I fired up Counter Strike Global Offensive, which now is buttery smooth (I went from 25~ fps on low settings with my macbook pro to 200~ fps with everything maxed). It was joyous and I can already tell it's going to make me a much better player. I also tried some Deus Ex Human Revolution and Metro 2033 which looked excellent as well.
I've yet to install the aftermarket cooler but I probably will at some point. (I probably should've just skipped out on it honestly, considering I won't be doing any overclocking)
My only complaints with the build are for one, the secondary power supply cable that runs from the PSU to the motherboard is really short, and I have to run in directly over top of the graphics card so it reaches to the port at the top of the motherboard. It's also one of the few cables on the PSU that isn't modular so I don't think I could just order a longer one to replace it. Also, the audio plug that goes from my case to the motherboard is a little on the short side too, but that's less of an issue.
The only problem I've run into as far as things not working correctly is my 2 USB ports on the front of the case don't recognize anything I plug into them. Whenever I plug something in, I get a message that says the device could not be recognized. The four USB ports on the motherboard work fine though. I'm still trying to figure out the issue with that.
you can buy a extension cable for that 4 or 8 pin plug,,,even sleaved fancy if you want,,,maybe 10-15$ tops,,,and the front usb ports ,,,,what plug do you have it plugged into on the motherboard,,,should be a number,,beside the plug
