Recommended Posts

So, for this build I decided to stick to Corsair, due to a history of good experience. This lead to the following build:

So far I've only ran into one problem, the H100's fan controller stopped working. I've seen the issue before, and I think RMA'ing is inevitable. However, I don't have another cooler on hand and need the computer for work/school. Thus, it looks like I'll be waiting a while to either borrow one or pick up a spare, I don't know. Beyond that, I have no complaints.

 

 

 

A small gallary here! Still waiting on the Corsair Link, K60, M60 and I might get Vengeance headset, for a matching set of accessories.
