the issue was the power connectors were not connected to the inputs on the case. In most cases, this isn't an issue. So to fix this all you do is open the top part of the case and then connect those pins.

for that price I think you could have gone with a better case! I have that Zalman case. Nothing wrong with it. But I bought it for a low price and for $100 I would personally expect more than Zalman Z11 probably NZXT/Fractal design type. Other than the build is amazing. +1

a good build with main focus on aesthetics. I have the same CPU/GPU combo in my gaming rig which costed $750 along with monitor (please check it out). But for your price range, I think going for Intel build is more reasonable. Other than that love the color scheme and love that CPU/GPU as always! +1

750ti would be alot better than the integrated graphics for that light gaming.

very good build but more importantly very good pictures. Looks like that camera cost more than pc :) and how is the steam OS compared to other linux distro (especially Ubuntu 12.04)

very good for the price. i did a very similar build for around same price. I never came across that case while I was building mine, else would have definitely got this sweet case. Checkout my build, its very similar to yours at same price. And good job +1

if you are looking into crossfiring, MSI would be a great choice. And prices should drop during black friday (get it for under $150)which would be pretty sweet

overclocked 270 performs almost identical to 270X (maybe 2% more powerful). But most benchmarks ignore overclocking 270X for some reason. So I would say that overclocking 270X would be a powerful than overclocked 270. And that $10-20 would be worth it

In my opinion, there is no need to go for liquid cooling. The temps so far are pretty good and that 212 EVO should be enough in keeping your temps under 50C @4.0 GHz.

well just make sure when (if) your making a 2nd build, research about where to invest in terms of pc parts to get the most!!

And also I feel like there was a lack of enough research done!! Since this is a budget build, you have to make sure you get most from what you pay for!!

Okay build!! Could have done a lot better for that price! One thing that troubles me is that you keep saying this build will be upgraded very frequently. If that's the point, why not get 8GB ram for now, and if needed upgrade to 16GB as the price drops. It is more important to get a better CPU and GPU to start with rather than upgrading them since upgrading those (in short term) makes no sense to me!! Just remember this next time

with this budget, i think intel i5 4670k would be a better choice. but i could be wrong.

According to the benchmarks, GTX 760 is powerful than the R9 270 and also bit powerful than R9 270(x). Since I was on budget, R9 270 was a better choice for $180 compared to GTX 760 which was around $250. Overall, at that price I think 270 has better price-performance ratio whereas 760 is around 10% stronger than 270 (overclocked)

Hyper 212 Plus/Evo would be a great improvement letting you overclock that beast. And the choice of parts is exactly like mine. +1

its not too great but good for the price. if your going with semi/modular PSU, you can manage but otherwise you would have cable hanging everywhere

Awesomest build ever. Not too fancy. Not too simple. When I was choosing the case for mine, I saw that Corsair case and told myself I would get once I get enough money. Feels like I am in a time machine watching my future build

no I updated my BIOS later. At the time of purchase, PCPP did not show any incompatibility issues. And I have not done any overclocking. But hoping to do it soon once I find a tutorial

for my fx 8320 (3.5 GHz), i went with CM hyper 212 plus (not evo, because they are basically same and wanted to save some for an additional fan) and at load I get around 35-40C. Before i would get 55C. I am not an expertise on water cooling but this CM cooler does a great job!!!
