forgot to introduce my self

hey guys,
my name is Benito, currently located in New Mexico. i built my first system in 2007 as a sophomore in highschool it was the most epic thing i had ever done and no one in school had a better PC it was ' da bomb for like two months. i could play Crysis on 75% Medium, 25% high settings .

it had an AMD Athlon X2 6000+ CPU at 3.3 GHz on air
Nvidia 8800 GT
8GB DDR2 at 667 i think
i just had to say i had 1 TB and everyone was like "oh DAYUMM"
DVD Reader
DVD Burner
400W generic power supply
Apevia case

up untill 2011 never did any updates to it
in the summer of 2011 i did a custom paint job which wasn't to bad. i also upgraded to a 550ti and i had to upgrade PSU, 550W ThermalTake.
at this point i was already like "this system is old need to upgrade soon"

2012 spring a ram dimm died, so i was down to 4gb of ram

summer of 2012 came along and my hard drive started going 'NOO! not the 1TB' i think i reinstalled window like 3 times before i just gave up right before school started and purchased parts for a new system

so August 2012
my sig rig was born.
i7 3770k
AsRock z77 Extreme 9
8GB Gskill Sniper 1866
1 TB!!! storage
256 OCZ Agility4
GTX 480
CM Storm Trooper
i with the money i spent on getting a nice case and PSU sleeved extension some CM sickle flow fans, after market coolers pro the CPU and GPU. i could have put in a GTX 680 but my build looked pretty sexy or so i thought.

super tidy right!!

well now i am currently modding this setup!!! goint to put a 120.3 60mm rad in the roof, 120.2 60mm in the floor, D5 pump, CPU GPU loop. and a lot of modding!!! i have a build log going already. check it out!!

i should add that when i built my first system i was in this program in highschool where i was a "tech intern" this is what got me all started. would walk around school during last period fixing teachers computers. i built like 20 systems for a computer lab there. it was awesome.

after that i became the family tech support, HOFSMHS, anyways i built systems for fellow classmates and some for some relatives, and some for family friends, i have built a lot of different systems, only two for myself.

also my father has a construction business and i have been involved since i was literary a child (5 years old) "helping" (being in the way) him out on job sites and stuff. i have an extensive knowledge on tools and materials so doing these PC mods comes fairly easy, though i sometimes feel crazy when i get new ideas.

i am also studying Electrical and Computer Engineering at university. i know maths but F grammar and spelling
