My most hated thing is probably it's heat output, I live in the tropics (Cairns, North Queensland, AU), where it is really hot and humid so I have to have my A/C on 24x7. Current room temp: 22C humidity: 50%. Lovely.

 

PS. It's a liquid cooled, overclocked 3930K, GTX 680 4GB, GTX 650Ti (for aux displays) 1GB, 32GB RAM, 120 + 60GB SSD (Mac, Windows) and 2x2TB HDDs.

I wouldn't say that I hate it but I do need to replace it as it's over 6+ years old.

I, too, lack any SSDs... I also hate that natively my case only supports one USB 3.0 port on the front...

The thing I hate most about it is that I only have 3 hard drive bays, and I have 7 drives that I could be using for media storage. I take pictures, a LOT of pictures. I've looped my camera 7 times now(looping is when the image counter gets to 9999 and then you go back to 0001, so the default name of the image would be something like 1365.cr2) and I shoot in RAW format, so the pictures take up a crap ton of space so more drives means MOAR better. So I'm limited to my 2tb wd black, my 1tb segate barricuda, and my ssd, and whatever external drive I can find. The sad thing is I have a matched pair of wd 500 gig hard drive just sitting around doing nothing as well as a wd 80 gig laying around. First world problems.

The fact my 200mm fan on my HAF 932 (Top rack) died about two months ago. So much rage...I am just getting two 120mm's. That or the fact it catches dust like a fly zapper zaps flies D:<


i5? Never heard of it her...

The noise/vibration caused by multiple hard drives in my awful case.

Wish I had bought a Fractal Design Define R2 (from when I bought my current case, now I'd get R4) instead of the HAF912.. (I also had the HAF932, but it was too big for my taste, so I switched to a smaller one)

I would totally put all my drives in a NAS far away from me, but installing/running games from that seems like a pain in the butt.

I store a lot of data but I can't justify buying a NAS. I don't have the time and don't want to spend the money. I hate my rig because it vibrates. =_=

My case is ugly and has no cord management.. and my PSU isn't that great.

That it is a laptop with a Celeron M 723 @1.2GHz with a 250GB mechanical hard drive on the SATA1 standard.

The height of all PSU's bottom mounted, the biggest thing that stands out with certain windowed side panels.

^My PSU sticks out visually being so tall, if it was half height but twice the length, it would give the whole bottom area the nice shelf/clean/flat look through the window.

I like my sleek/clean/single color without stickers PSU's.

I'd prefer a Short but Long version of high wattage perfection (SFF?)

 

I also hate I have not done AIO/Watercooling yet on my Primary Beast, just the HTPC.

I hate the side window, just the fact that there is one. I hate that I paid Corsair for sleeved cables instead of taking a week to do it myself. I hate that I had to zip-tie away my graphics cards' sag. I hate the noise that all the Corsair fans and the pump make. I hate that LightBoost doesn't play nice with a separate monitor.
