    Advice/Criticism/Opinions on semi-completed build?

    So I can finally comfortably show my pc off and label it as a "gaming pc", although still not 100% finished I just want to get some opionions and what not at the mid-way point. I don't think one could ever be done building Anyways this is sort of a build log although not the best it shows what I've started with to where I am now, i guess it is more like a transformation log.

    This is the earliest picture I have, although nothing special here I always admired clean pc's when it comes to cords and cable management this one isn't the cleanest but yet it was the first time I took a build seriously. Practice makes perfect right??

    Here I finally decided on a gpu, I went with the MARS 760, I had a Matrix 580 before so I decided I would try out the Mars line-up (this was also before the Matrix 780ti was announced. When the matrix was announced I sold my mars immediately to minimize loss on it. Even though it was an amazing card, I knew I would be upgrading to 1400p and felt it may not be enough and never was a fan of SLI. (Although I kept the cool magnet as you'll see in later pics )

    So I got bored with waiting for the matrix and decided to do a slight change.. which ended up turning into more than that as you can see I got a new case (750D) , motherboard (MViF) , watercooler (H105), and as noted earlier the little magnet remains even after the mars is long gone Old parts went to little brother as he discovered minecraft a few months ago and desperately needed a computer as he was using mom's work laptop LOL he thought it was so cool to have his own, I'm sure he will grow up into the ROG community

    I just had to have this, I missed the first batch and was so mad at myself. Not that I actually use it or anything lol I haven't found too much of a use for it other than it looks sweet! I still need to get the longer cord from Asus though I hate having a cord ran across the front of my pc

    Still waiting on that matrix card... I actually grew really impatient on it. Almost to the point where I would just buy the DCUII card but knew I would greatly regret it. I thought maybe just a 760ti for now then resell (keep in mind I have this overly expensive pc that I can only play minecraft on it really ate at me) but then figured it would just be a waste of money. So after looking at build pics on here I realized fans can make a great addition and decided that would hold me over for a while. Even added the lightbar upgrade on my ram.
