This is my first photo editing PC that I've built. I will be posting images of the build and benchmarks once I'm done putting it together. So much fun!
I've managed to OC the 4770k to 4.5ghz stable so far. I've added some benchmark images too.
I've completed the build minus all the archive HD's I will be adding soon. I attached the SSD's on the rear panel of the mother board tray. Does my PC look like it should? Cable management ok? I'm really going to be picky on the way it is maintained and running. Is the current windows defender good enough of a protector? I've heard Avast is good too.
I will be adding more pics in a bit.
EDIT 8/13/13: I've completed the Synology NAS addition to my system today. I have 5x4TB HDs to have about 16TBs worth of backed up data (mainly my photos for clients). The Synology was a breeze to setup!
EDIT*** 12/15/13 I have now converted this machine to a Hackintosh. I have changed the mono to a Gigabyte UD5H version. It runs awesome at 4.0gnhz! I don't miss windows at all!!!!!
