So... I managed to go a bit higher then i expected!

So... This Beast of A System Has a Very! Very, Fast system but, Dont go judging that i have a Crappy Case... This case is primarily great for cooling! But im still working on it! im looking to get a beefier heatsink then what i currently got right now,  And i might throw in a Good Graphics Card. BUT im not ready to go for Water Cooling System Quite just yet!

 

Right now. This System is stable enough to run! And so i decide to show it off, If you got any comments to Say, Go right ahead, Just dont bash me with crappy stuff saying, This sucks and all that! I put my time and effort into this, This took me almost 6 Hours To Complete Yesterday (Considering i had to re-install windows to get rid of Intel Graphics) And $250 In Equipment to Build this all!  Overall I Think it was a Great Build! Here's Some of the Photos!

its a nice start! you may want to look into cable management. as per the picture, your case seems to have great options for cable management. that will improve your airflow potential, and it looks better. glad to see you installed your Ram in dual channel. Great work!

may your framerates be high and your temperatures be low. #pcmr

Oh boy.... that psu sounds like it's good fire starting material. 

 

And that cable management needs some work. 

 

But good build!

Yes, Ive heard about that... Thats why im looking to also switch that as fast as i possibly can!

My eyes! The Purple Audio Boost light!

 

I did a very simple mod to mine: Unscrew the Audio Boost cover, apply one strip of red electrical tape from the inside, screw back plate: -> Blood red light as it should be.

who cares...

i hope your kentek doesnt blowup before you get a better psu. look for brands that offer 80+ Gold Quality, at least bronze. quicktip: never cheap out on the psu. if it fails, it may destroy other parts of your computer. 

may your framerates be high and your temperatures be low. #pcmr

@Derykey

 

Once you get a better PSU, the cables should be longer, allowing you to thread them through the back. It looks like the "Kentek" PSU's cables are too short to go around the back. Most reputable brands (Corsair, Seasonic, NZXT, Fractal, Silverstone, EVGA) have long enough cables and good efficiency (80+), and safety.
