Sorry for it being dusty, I haven't had any compressed air to clean it with, and for the imo potato quaility pictures, my camera isn't exactly great and I'm terrible at taking pictures.
There would be quite a few things I would have done different but I didn't order all of the parts at once due to the lack of money and it wasn't possible for me to save up so I made due with what I had. I went with the A8 6600K because I wanted playable FPS in games and it was a quad core. I went with the cpu cooler because from my research it was the best cpu cooler in its price range and I really like the looks of it. I went the motherboard because it had decent reviews, enough fan headers for me and it supported up to 2400mhz ram.
I went with the ram due it being the lowest priced ram and according to reviews, good at overclocking which was important to me because I couldn't afford faster ram, I went the HDD because it was a last minute decision, I was short of money so I couldn't get the Seagate Barracuda that I wanted so I went with this. I went with the 200R due to it having decent reviews and despite some people on the forum thinking I hate Corsair products which I don't, I really like this case.
I went with the psu because at the time I was on a super tight budget and the reviews looked decent for it, I almost went with a refurbished CX psu, yuck, I wasn't as knowledgeable about psu's as I am now when I brought this, I think I could have done much worst.
I am honestly surprised with what this build is capable of, it gets around 60FPS in Skyrim with a ENB on High settings at 720P. I only get 30FPS in GTA V at 720P which is lackluster and is oddly low according to benchmarks for this cpu and it dips down into the low 20's online. This build is a huge upgrade compared to the PC I was using before which was a AMD Athlon 64 4000+ and a Geforce 6100 that was integrated on the motherboard and it ran Windows Vista.
--You might be wondering why my temperature under load is high and that is because I accidentally used too much thermal paste which I will fix very soon, hopefully within this week-- its fixed and is now running at around a cool 50C under load and have my integrated graphics overclocked to 1138mhz, its the highest stable overclock I can get and according to usebenchmark I have the fastest HD 8570D out there.
You also might by wondering why the hell I have a fan on top on my SSD mounts and that is a to provide airflow to the southbridge heatsink, its a very, very high static pressure fan that I got off a heatsink that was in a old Emachine. it keeps it very, very ,very cool, around room temperature.
My biggest complaint so far is a R7 260X that I ordered that was defective, I have reinstalled Windows 4 times because of it and tried everything possible and I didn't know I ordered it refurbished from Neweegg on Ebay and it has been hell with them trying to return it.
I plan on upgrading in late August, the Case to Fractal Design S, the CPU to a 860K, get rid of the 500GB HDD because I'm selling it to a friend, pick up a SSD and a at least a 2TB HDD, a R9 390 or a R9 390X, I know some of you guys are going to say its going to bottleneck and I'm honestly not worried about it because I still should be able to get around 60FPS in recent games and then early next year the cpu to probably a Skylake i5 or a AMD Zen cpu, I'm just using a i5 4690K as a placeholder currently, and a custom loop.

Where do I start off, its has fairly strong integrated graphics on it, its a quad core, I haven't ran into a game it can't play yet at least 25FPS with the integrated graphics overclock and the ram overclocked, I get around 60FPS at 720P in skyrim on high settings with a ENB installed, I'm not even sure how that is possible, its the little cpu that could. My only complaint is that is impossible to get a accurate temperature reading on the igpu, according to HWMonitor it runs at -7C.
It looks sexy, and cools pretty good, and is quiet when its not set to full RPM, its a little noisy at RPM but nothing that bothers me or I really even notice when I play a game, not much else I can say here.
My only complaint is that it won't let me run my case fans at full speed, other that that its good and has allowed me to get a very good overclock on my integrated graphics.
There isn't much to say here, I have got it overclocked to 2133mhz at 1.65V and its stable.
Its enterprise grade although I didn't need it need it to be, it was a added bonus, its a little loud though.I brought it refurbished and haven't had a problem with it.
While I do regret spending $44 on the case because I just now realized I'm going to be getting a different case in a month or less, it has been a good case for the price.It has some room for cable management although you are likely to end up shoving the unused cables in the HDD cage and things can get tight in the back. The fans are fairly weak and the poor front dust filter design just makes it worst.
I have had it go out on me but it was my fault, don't ask how but Fractal let me RMA anyway, only if they had a wider option of psu's out there because I would buy from them again, Its quiet although I really never been able to put it under heavy load due to me lacking a working gpu.
Wireless Network Adapter
Not much to say here, it works good but my only complaint is that it blocks a USB port due its design
Its quiet, I can't even hear it at full RPM, has led's and moves a good amount of air.
Its a little noisy full RPM but it moves a decent amount of air. The only thing bad about it and its not 100% its fault is that doesn't have enough static pressure to push air though the fan grill I have installed but that will change very soon when I get a much more powerful fan.
This thing puts out a crap load of air at full RPM and its quiet mode is actually kinda of quiet for a beast like this. My only complaint is that the adapters to make it mount on a 140MM fan mount are kinda of hard to use, it seems like you would need 3 hands to mount it.
I'm pretty sure that I'm the first person to write a review for food. The cool ranch flavor, they are so good, I can honestly add a whole bag in one sitting without noticing, I probably could eat two or three bags in one sitting, my only complaint is the seasoning that they leave on your fingers, not ideal while gaming.
