No BIOS update require. They're compatible out of the box.
What really? This is my first build, I must have made some financial mistake. I initially aimed for a ~$500 build.
Cable management did not live up its hype of being "so hard, perfecting it, is an art". All I had to do is bunch them together and zip-tied them!
Yes it does, I can lie to them at parent-teacher meetings (I don't because I'm an A(sian)+ student), I can talk about inappropriate things with my friends infront of them, and they can't find what I'm doing on the Internet.
But it does have its of drawbacks, I have to go with EVERYWHERE with them to translate EVERYTHING!
I have a dust filter on my intake fan and the intake fan is running at a higher RPM than the exhaust fan so air shouldn't be coming through any holes or opening in the case.
I chose the Double Dissipation card not by its looks but it is good looking, very sleek and minimalistic. Thanks for the +1!
I'll definitely upgrade to a SSD, but I don't think I'll be upgrading the RAM, I think 8GB is enough for a long time.
I'm running Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro which I got through Dreamspark. I did saw some cheaper 500w psu by Rosewill, but I felt like I trusted Corsair more and I wanted a modular psu. I didn't get an aftermarket cpu cooler because I don't plan over clocking right now. Thanks for your feedback.
Thanks for the tip and upvote. I'll see if I can route my cables under the GPU.

Did you had to update the BIOS before putting the FX-6300 on it?
"Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs." -Compatibility Notes
I don't have an extra CPU to update BIOS before using the FX-6300, so I hope the mobo work with the FX-6300 straight out of the box.
Also, I see that your PC is on the carpet, I don't think thats a good idea. Carpet creates static and it have a lot of dust. Dust that your power supply is definitely picking up since its inhaust fan is sucking air in from the bottom.
