My first self-built PC, feedback

Hello!
It's been ages since i've posted on here, I've just finished building a PC myself for the first time, I ran into a few bumps and problems but eventually got there.
Here's a Picture:

Since it is my first homebuild, im pretty nervous and just want anyone to take a look to give me any feedback, it would be much appreciated.
The case is a Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced
CPU: i7 3820
CPU Cooler: Antec 620 Kuhler
Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Formula
16 GB of Ram
GPU: EVGA GTX 680 ( Reference )
700 watt Cooler Master Silent Pro PSU

My fans- 1xIntake on front, 1x intake on side, 1xExhast on top

Please keep in mind that this PC is primarily for gaming, and i DO NOT overclock at all.

EDIT:
I forgot to add in my idle and load temps for cpu and gpu:
CPU - Idle: 20-32 / Load: 40-55
GPU - Idle: 29-39 / Load: 64-79

Thanks guys!!

    I'd really appreciate feedback...
  4. its nice but if its just for gaming you spent way to much. dual 660ti superclocked edition out performs a single 680 in games for about the same price

    i7 is not a gaming cpu its works great but the i5 is cheaper and does just as good for games. or the phenom II x4 or fx 6100 or 4100 all cheaper than i5 and still do great in games


    max ram you need for gaming is 4 but i would go to 8 just to be safe in case i want to run a server or something

    the case is nice but there are better cases are more of a personal style thing though

    thats my 2cents how much did the build cost you?

    Thanks for your input! It cost me around $1400. It performs great!

    No geez as in cool.

    But if you want feedback, I think you spent too much going with the 3820. But its whatever.
  7. yeah its a beast of a computer. and probably will last 5 years unless there is a huge jump (happens sometimes) and if there is a jump i bet all you would need to upgrade is your gpu cause cpus tend to last unless they burn out. i game with a phenom 8400 triple core 2.1 its great but it is starting to hold me back and its a old mediocre processor
  8. Thanks guys for the input! I'm concerned about the temps, On load my cpu hits about 50-55 and GPU - up to 80 (Celsius)

    I've tried a custom fan curve but its too loud!

    Thanks guys! :)
  9. 80C on a GPU isnt terrible, but its hot. If your GPU is old, get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of it.

    The fins of the fan are quite dusty. I've been meaning to get a couple can. Do you know any retailers who sell them in Australia? If not, ill just get some online.
  11. I'm actually from the states, so I have no idea.
  12. well most supermarkets in US sell them so try there. or if you have an air compressor it works to just dont turn it up all the way. i think most gpus can get to 160c before frying but 80 is very high. my 9800gts is a energy card it has about the same power as a normal one but the fan is way worse than normal its like a laptop fan and the heatsing is also very small and it idles around 60c and underload max is 70 but usually 65-68c

    dusting it out should help temps

    also putting an exhaust on back should help since the air will flow from front straight to back cooling and pushing out hot air
