When I started ordering parts for this PC I wanted to keep performance in mind but I also wanted to keep it as quiet as possible. I also wanted to customize it so it would stand out and that is what I did!
This PC has been a work in progress for the past few months since I could only work on it on the weekends. It was originally in a Corsair Air 540 but I did not like that case (or the theme) at all. So I ordered a H440, custom sleeved cables, painted the motherboard and gpu to make it look like I wanted it to. The outcome is better then I could have hoped for!
CPU: This CPU is a beast and is way more then I could possibly use.
CPU Cooler: This is a very nice CPU cooler and once I got one that wasn't defected, it is fantastic. The first one I got looked like it got damaged in shipping. It had white lines on the top and side of the logo and it did a horrible job of cooling. The new one works fine so i'm happy with it.
Motherboard: Fantastic motherboard! Easy to paint and it looks fantastic.
Memory: Great memory! No problems with it.
Storage: This SSD is decent for the price. I would not rebuy it for a boot drive. The hard drive is good. It is great for storing gaming.
Video card: Great graphics card! It was fairly easy to take apart and paint but it has a lot of screws! Performance wise it is great for my 1080p monitor.
Case: Great case! Very solid build quality! The only problem I had with it is I couldn't figure out how to power the back IO Led and the NZXT logo Led but that's not a big deal.
Power Supply: This power supply is great! Plenty of power for me. Also the custom sleeved cables are fantastic. I couldn't find the power supply on the list of power supplies so I added it as a custom part.
Operating System: Not much to say about it. It gets the job done!
Case Fans: The fans are good but the NZXT Grid is a different story. Every time I power on the computer the Grid makes all the fans run at full speed and there is nothing you can do about it to fix it unless you don't mind getting inside the case to unplug and replug it in.
Peripherals: The mouse, keyboard, monitor, and headset are great. I have no complaints about them!
