    What software do you use for watiching blurays on your PC? Fortunately my drive came with PowerDVD but other than that the options are kinda scarce for bluray playback, regarding good software.

    And what's the small red thing in the PCI-E slot?

    I use Nero platinum 2014. Comes with loads of stuff but the playback and controls have worked great for me. Got it for $40 when released. Now theres the 2015 version.

    The small red thing is an Asus wifi card for ac1900. I foget the model number though.

    Did your optical drive not come with any software for bluray playback?

    Nope. I purchased a bare drive.

    That really bugs me. There are stand-alone bluray-players out there that cost about 50€, that's less than most bluray-drives for PCs, yet companies still force you to pay for a program that lets you watch blurays. Fortunately mine came with CyberLink PowerDVD. It's not the best (but that seems to be a flaw that all bluray-playback software have in common), but at least it works and I didn't have to pay extra. I tried to get VLC player to play blurays but it didn't work :-/

    Yea I thought the same thing. But I didn't mind as much because of everything that came with the software I got. Bluray burner up to 14x, editing software for videos, recoding, among numerous other abilities. My thought was a bluray standalone may be able to play blurays but it can't do all the other stuff. So for me for $40 it was ok in the end.

    Wait, now I'm confused. So did you're bluray-drive come with software or did you have to buy it? Because if you had to buy it the price would be higher than for a standalone player (drive+software = >40$). Sure, the software lets you do much more than just watch blurays but you need it to even be able to watch them. Without the software it would just be an ordinary optical drive for DVDs with a "pay to unlock" option for bluray playback.

    I paid $40 for each. So $80 total on newegg. But I wanted more than just bluray playing. This has more for what I was looking for. So in the end I didn't mind paying 80 for it all versus a little less for just be able to play my movies.

    Hey if it still works! Good thing is though by that time ddr4 setup should be more reasonable. As well as proper 4k displays.

    Ah, I see you have decided to go for the 4790K. Nice choice!
    This setup should last you a very long time (as long as you don't want to drive some ridiculous 4K monitors, but heck, which GPUs don't ahve trouble doing that? ;-) )

    I really like the Seasonic PSU. They are top.

    Yeah decided with that CPU in the end. Should hopefully last me a while since I ideally aim for 3-4 years life cycle. I really like this power supply, I think I saw you comment about Seasonic in an earlier post so I wanted to try them out ;) This unit also got great reviews.

    Seasonic is among the best -if not THE best- OEMs for PSUs. Many other popular PSUs are often just rebranded Seasonic units. They have a very high reputation. I'm highly satisfied with mine but next time I'll make sure to buy one that's modular or at least semi-modular^^

    Have you run any benchmarks yet? 3DMark, Cinebench,...?

    Only thing that would bother me with your setup are the horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE non-black front I/O cables :-P

    I've just run 3DMark and Unigine Valley. Haven't tried Cinebench yet.

    Yeah I hate those front panel cables! Lol..totally ruins the look I was going for. Not to mention the red SATA cables for the front panel too :P

    How's that Toshiba HDD working for you? Do you happen to have the model-number at hand? Looking for a nice 2TB drive and Toshiba has awesome prices. Just need to collect more impressions from owners^^

    Nice to see a fellow Corsair case owner ;-)
