Are you unhappy with your computer build?

I spent a long time, and a lot of money on my computer to make it look cool while being somewhat functional. The whole rigid tubing an all. I completed the build in January 2015, but have never been satisfied with it. It looks awesome; however, it almost makes me sad in a sense. Here are a few things I plan on changing:

 

New UV LED strips instead of cheap cathodes. Ordered!

Wrap case in carbon fiber. Ordered!

Adding a third radiator to the rear exhaust. Ordered!

Using EK 90 degree angle fittings where bends are too tight. Ordered!

Replacing ALL fans with EK Vardars.

New PWM controller. Ordered!

Re-bend every tube in the system.

New UV coolant with Mayhem Perls mixed in. (Yes I know this is for shows only, but I'd like to see how long it will last.)

New revolver fittings.

Upgrading to X99 ASUS Deluxe.

Upgrading to a 5820K.

GeIL LED DDR4.

Temp probes. Ordered!

Custom sleeved cables. Ordered!

 

 

The bends look great, but there are small blemishes here and there which I couldn't fix since I was on a tight budget, and ran out of tubing. You can view the build on my profile.

 

Are you unhappy with your build for whatever reason?

Nope. I mean I wish I had a graphics card, but I'm really happy with my build.

I agree with your entire first sentence and i consider my rig to be great, I've started to convince myself that i don't need any of the upgrades I want because I don't have a monitor worthy of the power and so on. Really got kinda disappointed cause i couldn't seem to really find kraken g10s anymore kinda wanted to slap an aio on my card. Let me also say I opted for the i5 and the Sabertooth mark 1 instead of i7 and Gigabyte z97-ud3...worst mistake. Though this setup has been flawless!

I just wish I had the funds for a whole new build. I've had my processor since 2012, I "upgraded" to a 7970- from a GTX 570 (in February.) The cooler is messed up, and a new cooler from Arctic Cooling would be $70 or more (but would it really be worth it??)

I want a new case, I NEED a new PSU, I want an SSD, I want a new everything.

Hey, at least I run Battlefront on high/ultra at 1080p 60 FPS just fine.

I want a new computer, but I don't need it.#firstworldprobs

I wish I had of gotten a better case and a better PSU! (Maybe I should have gotten a 285 or 280x instead of the 280.

Other than that, it is fine

I went from a planned 4k gaming rig that could run bf4 on ultra at greater than 60fps, to a stock Dell XPS 410 real fucking quick

 

Fuck my life

I have to do all this research to figure out what the fuck to do and figure out the limit to what I can upgrade, and the only advice i can seem to get from people is to punch holes in my computer and get a new mobo.

If I was able to start a new build I would have built my computer from the ground up in the first place

Shipping sucks

Yes. My GPU won't cut it anymore. I also wish I researched my PSU a little bit more and went ATX

Is that a rendering build? I'm just thinking based on the CPU, storage, and RAM amount.

Just the case. At the time I wanted a super gamer looking case, so I got the Thermaltake MK-I. I loved it for the longest time, and I still do to an extent, but I'd really like to get a cleaner looking case now.

I use it for everything. I really do like how fast it renders audio, which I do regularly.

I guessed that because of your dedicated soundcard.

 

Producing music or FX?
