This is my first PC build, so anything that sounds like it may be broken may have been my fault. Really, though, nothing was truly broken or incompatible, in fact, I know I messed some stuff up. Anyway, The PC works absolutely fantastic. Smooth as a hot knife through butter, and the lights are practically orgasmic. My favorite color is blue, as is quite obviously indicated by all of the blue parts I got. The case is a bit hard to build with, as it is quite cramped (but I have big hands and it was my first build). No problems other than me messing some stuff up, so, all in all, it's fantastic.
If you want to know what I messed up, I used the wrong screws with the CPU cooler and it was too tight around the CPU which prevented it from starting up somehow. I also completely messed up the Windows installation because it freezes after a couple minutes. I know what you're thinking: "Dude your CPU is overheating." Well, it isn't because I reapplied some good thermal paste when I replaced the screws and I've checked the CPU temperature. It's literally the Windows installation. Luckily, something happened and my computer decided to run the Windows on my old HDD, and it's running perfectly. Other than the fact that it tells me I'm still on an Alienware Aurora R4, it's perfect.
If I were to have any complaints here, it'd be against Gigabyte, or at least the shipping company, because my motherboard arrived bent in the top left corner, where the I/O ports are. I didn't send it back or anything as it works fine and I didn't need those ports anyway.
I would definitely recommend the Kraken X62 CPU Cooler because, with the CAM application, you can change the lights on it to whatever color you please. The case is also very, very nice.
So yeah! So far, everything is running perfectly. This build is quite expensive but I've convinced myself that it is a birthday present, even though I built this in March and my birthday is in June.
