Had lots of fun with my first build and working with the Corsair 400R. The computer is very fast and snappy. Games play at 60fps and more.
The pricing of this build was actually less due to the fact that I had Fry's price match Microcenter for the 3570k at $169. I also got the MSI z77A-GD65 for $125. And the power supply was only $50. I just picked up the CM 212 CPU cooler today for $22 so that I can start overclocking it. Also, the memory only cost $35 at Frys. So total build was $989.
Cant wait to do this again!
