Default New Build Complete (Pics)

So I decided to do a new build after about 7 years or so.
Previous system:
Core 2 Duo e6750
Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R
4GB G.Skill 1066 DDR2
XFX HD 5850 (was an XFX GTX 285)
Antec 900
Xigmatek Rifle S1283 HS/F

New System:
i5 4690k
Gigabyte GA-Z87x-UD4H
12GB G.Skill 1600 DDR3
EVGA GTX 960
Corsair Vengeance C70
Corsair H110 with 2x140mm NF-A14 iPPC fans

Got pretty good deals on most of the parts - the only "new" parts were the case and GPU - everything else was 2nd hand.

And now pics:

Album: Album





















Some of the earlier pics have the stock Intel HS/F on them because the H110 didn't come in until about a week or so after all the initial components.

I did notice that the other night after I turned it off, the next morning it was turned on...so I think one of my cats rubbed up against it and turned it on or something. Would be nice if it had a flip cover like the reset switch.

Because for the money an i5 is better and current. Nvidia cards also use less power and in return generate a lot less heat compared to competitive AMD cards.
