Welcome to the Green Fiend build log.
Background of the build is I was a console gamer with little to no PC gaming experience up until Spring of 2012. After a few months of playing BF3 on xbox and developing an incredible passion to enhance my gaming experience. I researched into gaming PC's, learned about the enthusiast side of things which lead me to overclocking... which is when I found OCN. Originally I got handed down an athlon dual core system which I upgraded with 4gb of 1333 ddr3 ram and an asus gtx 550ti which played me BF3 on low settings at playable fps for a few months. Then after obtaining my tax return I blew every last cent I had to spend building the original rig. I recycled my hard drives, video card and ram from the old system and bought myself the updated AMD platform and the NZXT phantom 410 along with all the fans needed to fill all the slots (I couldn't dare have an empty fan slot lol) It ended up costing around $750 CND and I had built the computer I'd been dying for. I blame OCN for making me care so much what my computer looks like

Before I did my little paintjob of the side panel.
I really disliked the green and blue mix of colours going on.
Finally realized to take the hard drive bay out since I didnt need it.
Got my first taste of liquid cooling even though it was a simple installation with no maintenance hehe
Led swap, it was bugging me for a long time...
Repositioned the rad to what I feel to be a better place
I LOVE GREEN!!
Hope to hear some good feedback and advice for future changes
