Description
I suppose what makes this build special is the 100% transparent acrylic case with blue LED case fans. I built it in about an hour or two, but had to get a new HDD as the SSD and CD/DVD drive both died during the build (don't ask me how). Once the new HDD was in, I re-installed Windows, and everything was cool. This thing is a beast. 8 cores on a single CPU, OCed to over 4 gigahertz. I can run all games on max graphics.
