    Sorry I used the wrong word. It's not criticism really lol. More like my personal view or suggestions as you may call it.

    Instead of using the blue banks for your RAM, I'd use the black banks. If you loosen the knot of your rear fan cable a little, you can tuck the knot beside the fan and it won't show up. I know you can do better with the cable management at the front. Black zip ties are your best friend. Oh and if you're looking to get rid of that ugly blue USB 3.0 cables coming out of your case in the future, this is what you need: Akasa USB3.0 internal adapter cable

    Overall, you did a good job. I liked the video. Nice music and camera angles. Enjoy your build.

    Is there any particular reason why?

    Alright, I'll attempt to revise my cable management.

    Common practice lol. Most, if not all, motherboard manufacturers recommend using the 2nd & 4th slot when using two sticks of dual channel RAM.

    I said I'd post pictures of the new build, but that's a lie . Because I have a YouTube channel and I do a bunch of stuff on that, I figured it's a good avenue to show off the new computer .
    Here's a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-684gjqABSk
    Thanks for all of the help!
    Looks good. Congrats on a successful build.

    Alright, the RAM cards are in the second and fourth slots now.

Everything runs fine, so it's not like I expect any issues to be fixed by upgrading. Maybe better performance???
    I'm just looking for advice.
    Also, if I do get drivers, I should get them directly from NVidia...right?
    never use Beta drivers, they are buggy, you can end up whit BSOD's or you could be fine.
    thats my recomendation.

    I know not to use beta drivers...but 310.9 is no longer beta. It's been out of beta for quite a while now.
    Anyways, it's been working great for about four weeks now so I think the 310.9 drivers are fine for me.
