I actually never heard of that GPU brand before. I will google it later on. 

Well, there part of Palit, and unfortunatly they don't sell everywhere in the world so this is why :/ But it's the most powerfull too, 1150Mhz stock and 1241Mhz boost clock, it's a monster!

Update #1:

 

I just installed the two Thermalright fans on the CPU cooler, and oh god... it works brilliantly.

I won about 4-6 degrees celsius on that cpu, making it at ~25° on idle and ~45° on load!

Doesn't it look totally insane ?

Well, yes and no, since I'm very short on money I can't afford one at the moment, but yes, at the end the year when I buy my monitor, I might get an SSD at the same time!

That looks really nice and clean, I love the 500R too, it looks so much more premium than the price would suggest.

Absolutly, I am suprised that it's so well built and that it has so much room inside for cable management, etc.

Update #2:

 

Just got two 2 new fans from Noctua for keeping this build as cool and silent as possible.

I bought the NF-S12A PWM thanks to @SSOB that recommended these to me, they're awesome, and yes, I love how they look, and no I am not kidding.

Just got two 2 new fans from Noctua for keeping this build called "The Yeti" (wich means to have a cool as possible system, only cooled by air, if you didn't already noticed).

I bought the NF-S12A PWM thanks to @SSOB that recommended these to me, they're awesome, and yes, I love how they look, and no I am not kidding.
