Description

The PC took a while to build, no easy task but in the end it was well worth it!

The biggest issues I had was with the motherboard and case. The armor with the motherboard limited my ability to quickly connect all the ports, took some time trying to squeeze little cables in the pins with the motherboard blocking my hands. The two fans that come with the motherboard, had to remove both of them. They spin while under no load at roughly 8000rpm and overclocked at around 10000rpm. Sounds like a lawnmower in my case. Removed the both, sounds silent like a lamb.

The case is amazing however the pre-wiring they have done with it cause me some issues because it basically blocked the entire center jack for cable wiring but overall it worked out.

The keyboard is amazing like everyone says except for the loud keys, but with headphones on its barely noticeable.

Hey, great job on the build and prices! Cable management looks pretty good too. How's that motherboard, case, and keyboard? noticed you gave them 4 stars.

oh crap sorry. So how did you remedy the situation with the thermal armor? Was it best to put armor on then the cables, or did you have to, like, thread cables through the armor, then snap them in then install the armor.

the only threading problem really was with the two small thermal armor fans. It was a tight squeeze getting through my gpu and the armor but i barely managed to fit the cables in using pliers.

that's too bad. I was thinking about getting the thermal armor for my motherboard, but I don't know if it's worth the hassle just to make my rig look good haha.

honestly im not sure why he had problems with anything with the sabertooth board....i would rma the fans as mine are awesome... i did replace my 40mm one (behind the i/o panel) with a noctual 40mm one......but the one in front doesnt make a sound.

when did you buy this, the 750w is for like 60-70$ and that mobo is not worth it as you could have gotten a maximus for the same amount of money.Great build however.

GTX 980 makes the 780 invalid

I'm running bf4 on ultra at 110 avg, pretty sure any other boost would be pointless

that's why i'm glad to be too poor to buy my PC at the moment, while I slowly save cash technology advances and parts get cheaper. :D
