Default Newbie here =D

whats up guys. newbie here.=D found this site on google, thought this will help me give more knowledge, currently in school for IT on my local college. I work as a pc tech on our county public school almost 2 years now. I also shoot photos on side for almost 5 years now. recently my 6 years old laptop died on me so i decided to build my first personal desktop mainly for processing photos, and so far so good.=D not the cleanest install but will do.=D hope to learn all from you geeks! =D

Welcome to the forum!, that setup looks great minus a few things:
- The cables in front of the graphics card might block the fan,
- the power supply looks a little on the cheap side, what brand is it?

Anyways great computer! looks pretty solid.

Cool, i don't know diablotek, but if it came with a barebone kit from a site, then its probably fairly good.

Whats the specs?

15 seconds from when you press the power button to desktop?
