Hello fellow OC'ers!

My name is Justin and I'd like to introduce myself. I'm completely new to this whole PC build/mod. In the past I've always bought factory OEM built PC's and never been really happy with the outcome of factory stock components. Which makes sense since I'm a big gearhead always modding something with my cars. My brother who works in the IT field has always told me to build my own system with better quality parts and performace upgrades while spending the same amount as I would when buying Dell, Sony, Etc... So after doing some research on building my first PC, I've decided to build a system for mild Gaming (FFXIV, BF4, COD) and for work (CAD/Solidworks) with some custom personalized mods through-out the build. I recently purchased this system in October @ MicroCenter in CA. Please feel free to give me your guys' opinion on my parts selection since I came into it with no knowledge at all. Right now currently looking into a water-cooled system either through XSPC or EK....I've caught the BUG!thumb.gif

Corsair Vengeance C70 Case [Black]
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
AMD FX 8350 Black Edition
EVGA GeForce GTX 760 SC 2GB
Corsair Vengeance Series 8GB DDR3-1600
Samsung SSD EVO 120gb
Western Digital HD Black 1TB
Corsair CX750M
Windows 8.1
27" LG IPS monitor
Bose Companion3 2.1 Speakers

Day 1


After some wire cleanup.


Final....for now..wink.gif
