Just got done constructing my new PC last night! Wanted to share my build with everyone!

 

Tell me what you think:

 

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5 GHz LGA 1150

 

MOBO: ASUS Z97-A ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150

 

Heat SYNC (Fan) : Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (CPU Cooler-120MM PWM Fan)

 

Memory: PNY XLR8 DDR3 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz (PC3-12800) CAS 9 1.5V

 

Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5-Inch Sata III (paired with a 1TB Hard drive)

 

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

 

Case: NZXT Source 210 (White)

 

Power Supply: Corsair CX Series 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze ATX12V/EPS12V 744

 

Graphics Card: EVGA 960GTX FTW

 

Seems to run great! Still need to update drivers and all of that crap because I didn't have time last night >.<

I've build pretty much the same PC few months ago, just with better memory, SSD and motherboard. I'm really satisfied with it. This should last us a few years. :)

It will indeed. Especially if maintenance is kept up on. Mine is running great. Diablo 3 and WoW on Ultra at 80 FPS? I think so. :D :D

Seems like a pretty good build to me. Any particular reason you didn't just stick with the stock CPU fan? I don't see a reason to upgrade unless you're wanting to overclock (or maybe noise? I feel like the stock fan isn't particularly loud on Intel CPUs but that might be me). I'd also upgrade to Windows 10 if I were you considering it's not getting the standard update support anymore (only security updates at this point until 2020) and W10 is free and totally fine.

I may overclock in the future. Don't have a need to at this point but I may. It's a much bigger fan and is actually extremely popular. Most videos I have seen people use it (also the IT guy from where I work suggested it).

and W10 is free and totally fine

I'll take a loot at this then! I didn't know it was free still. Thanks! :)

If you may overclock, fair enough. And I certainly wasn't doubting your choice of fan (no experience there), just your choice of a aftermarket fan over a stock fan.
