My second build. This time, I tried to not use led fans again and use the corsair air series as a base for my colour scheme. The case side grills were originally black, but I custom painted it myself to match. Almost everything I got for a cheaper price than the original (thank you price matching). With the recent drop of the nvidia 700 series, it was the best time to start the build.
I will use this mostly for gaming, and so far after a week of tests and gameplay (crysis 2, battlefield 3, cod ghosts, batman arkham origins) I can say that I am impressed with the performance and the gtx 770 fits just right into my needs and my budget.
For a change, I chose to use white cathodes, but may subject to change. So far it looks alright so I'll leave it for now. This build took alot of planning, constant price watching, and effort to get everything. I'm happy it worked out so well in the end and the second time around, I found out I learned alot more than the first.
Feel free to leave feedback. Any future suggestions are appreciated as well.
