Well guys about 18 years have passed since I got my first PC as a kid, and since then I've bounced around from prebuit system to prebuilt system, always wanting more. So last year I jumped head first into my first custom build an entry level gaming rig. A 3570k in a ASUS P8z77v-le plus H80i cooler. Oc to 4.4. With a ASUS GTX 770. Over this past year this has been a perfect computer. It went together with ease no problems whatsoever. I started overclocking, benching, playing games and trying to see if I could max out all the settings, and thus far I have thoroughly enjoyed myself, and thought I was satisfied. Until I came across this motherboard.
And this case.
This story ends with "The bug bit me"
And so a new story begins, with a new build, and the culmination of hours and hours of research. I will try my best to document the whole build on this build log taking pictures of the progress along the way I hope you enjoy following along as much as I am going to building it.
Here is the build on PCPartPicker. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/bassfisher0703/saved/x4TMnQ
Please feel free send advice my way as this is my first x79 build and I know I'm going to need it.
