GLWS. :) 

I'm curious as to why you built a computer just to take an immediate loss on it?

Well, I was originally building this for someone that ordered this from me, so in the end so many excuses came up, and the build was nearly finished, this is last week. And now I'm already negative this amount, so I just want to sell it, because the system specs were so specific as to what board, card, and cpu this person wanted. Lesson learned though.

I mean for the price, do you agree that its a good deal? I mean it should sell like hotcakes haha. ;)

Where was it built at? You have customers? I see a clothes dresser in one of your pictures, :p 

What about those Cougar fans? Why did you install those instead of some cheaper ones for the customer? Did they want that specific too?

Nothing in bundles sells like hotcakes, unfortunately. If you were willing to part it out at slightly depreciated prices, you'd be in a much better situation. Your main parts like the CPU and GPU will go fast, with others like the DVD drive possibly never getting sold.

The thing that sucks is it's hard to convince people that it is NEW, and unless you work for an company that builds this stuff in an ESD environment, you're probably going to have to sell it slightly used. :\

My two cents. Again, good luck with your sale.

Yes, actually the fans were requested by the customer, for more silence due to poor reviews on the H100 fans, and for push and pull configuration. Yea, I get your opinion, and I see where you're come from. Thanks though, and yes it is a dresser because I had to put it in a high area for pics, and it was the highest desk/table I had.

Where do you work? I guess I don't understand why you had to put the computer up on a dresser l when you couldve lowered your camera, haha

I am a IT Systems Analyst, cant disclose the company, yea but its more to it than the camera, a clutter free zone, plus the dresser is like 1 week old, so clean space. Haha.

It's a solid build that I would expect is fairly quiet. Make sure it operates quietly and sell it as such.

Put an unwrinkled sheet over the dresser and use a better light source to improve the pictures :)

Yes, it runs very quiet indeed the vortex fans compared to the corsair ones are a HUGE difference, yea my lighting sucked, I have this energy saver light bulbs all over the one room. And my iPhone camera is sub par.
