How long did the build take and was it easy?

RE: LazyTriangle's Build Complete!!
It took me about 6 hours to build it by myself, could of saved an hour if I hadn't have reinstall the motherboard to get the cpu cooler in there and then another 2 hours to install the OS, drivers, updates, etc..

I ran into a couple minor problems but I was able to figure them out with a quick google search. I wasn't able to raid my hdd's since it kept crashing my pc when I booted the OS in RAID mode, changed it to AHCI and boots fine now. Overall I'd said it was fairly easy to build

RE: LazyTriangle's Build Complete!!
Nice Job-looks like GPU was a tight squeeze but everything else looks good-curious about brackets in front of HDDs-are they to secure drives or just to cover connections?

I don't know probably not, at least not on max settings, I've been playing Portal 2 on it though and that runs great, not sure what sort of fps I'm getting but it doesn't lag at all and load times are short.

@trebor those aren't brackets by the way it's just the top of the HDD, I inserted them in backwards so the power and sata connections would face towards the back to hide the cables behind the hdd cage and reduce clutter

You should get one of these to neaten the cords in the back.

Looks excellent. Are the fans the only source of light in the case? If so then bright fans!

there is 3 led fans two of which came with the case, I placed another in side panel and I also installed an NXZT Led Kit. This thing is really bright even during the day, they all can be turn on/off with a switch except for the fan on the side window
