Description

I started building this computer a while ago and this computer has been in many different combinations of parts since I first built it and here's what it is now:

I dual boot Windows and Linux on it off of the 2 500gb HDDs and I have the 2 1tb HDDs for storage

Core i5 4690k processor at stock speed

Hyper212 Evo CPU cooler with Noctua LTT Edition fan on it

Asrock Z97 Extreme4 Motherboard

12 gb of RAM two x4 gb and two x2 gb sticks

MSI Nvidia Geforce GTX 950 GPU

3tb of harddrives two 500gb and two 1tb HDDs

Samsung Bluray drive

Thermaltake H22 non side window case

And a whole combobulation of fans

Monitors: 2x 1024x768 displys and one 1680x1050 display

Part Reviews

CPU

This processor is a beast of a CPU it does all the things I need it to do without any problems

CPU Cooler

The Hyper212 Evo is decent I use it with a Noctua NF-F12 LTT Edition fan mounted on it and it works pretty good

Motherboard

I literally just got this motherboard the day before I wrote this review and so far the board is built nicely and has a ton of features the only things I don't like are the fan setup with the way you adjust the fan curve and I also don't like that 2 of the fan headers are located in the middle of the motherboard between my CPU cooler and GPU

Memory

This RAM gets the job done and is pretty inexpensive has been working over a year now no problems

Just got this GPU a week ago and it works great maxes out all the settings of the games I play

Looks like a solid build. The case has some channeling in the back if you want to route some cables through it as well. That might give you just a pinch better airflow.

they are channeled through the back and I did spend about a hour doing cable management but when you suck at cable managment and your case has little room for cablemanagement it doesn't make a good result

Nah, it's fine. I just stuff mine in places nobody can see and walk away like nothing happened.
