First gaming build complete! (with pictures)

So here is my creation! I'm very happy with it, destroys everything I throw at it (except Watch Dogs, but that game's a mess) I also have a 1440p korean monitor which I overclocked to 96 hz. What do you guys think? Anything you would have done differently?

Can't see it well but looks like the wires need to be run behind the mobo or at least pulled tighter where its not showing as much. It'll help a bit with airflow and make it look nice.

Edit: here's an example of my build I just did. Could be a bit better but the tubing from my cooler was a bit long and not sure if I can safely trim it.

Damn I like the look of that mobo. Don't think I've ever seen black and orange. My favorite color combo.

Yeah it was costly to get black and orange. Mobo was over $200 but looks pretty good so I don't mind. My favorite color combo also.

I would have bought a NH-D14 cooler, OCZ SSDs are junk, should have gone Nvidia, PSU is overkill and Razer is junk.

If that PSU was $160 I don't see how it's overkill. You might as well at that point. I agree he should have gone Nvidia, though. Should also get a mechanical keyboard.

ya you want the wires tucked in or tighter.

I zip tied mine neatly along the case where I could bundle certain areas.
