Description

Been wanting to build a computer for a while. I Decided on a mini ITX case because i wanted to be able to take it from room to room without as much hassle. It was a good learning experience that a enjoyed. Only problems I had were cable management, which with such a small case I didn't expect anything different.

Really, really want to build in that case, or the Aerocool DS. Why the i7 & $200 board, if I can ask? I guess if budget doesn't matter, you can do whatever. Just curious. +1 from me

MicroCenter was having an in-store pick up deal for 250, decided i may as well grab it since it was such a good deal. I wanted a quality motherboard and this one sounded really nice from what I read. I like the features it came with.

Ah, gotcha. I remember seeing that i7 listed for $199 end of last year, pick up only...needless to say I was/am a bit jealous of folks who live near a microcenter.

Look's like a great build all I can say is +1

Like the rig very much.... but building on towels could be a potential E.S.D. onto delicate components. Seeing that it works is awesome though.

5herko submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Woops! I'll be sure and not do that next time. Glad nothing bad came of it.

Magnusson 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

It's all cool if your only doing a one time build for the computer to last for many years to come.

Do you have to CPU Temps.? Would be awesome to know how hot the CPU is getting underload

I'll try to get them later today, I have to DL the widget.

5herko submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

so far after an hour of farcry 3 maxed I've gotten it up to 49C. I'm gonna keep playing and see where it peaks.

I have never had E.S.D caused from Towels.

Magnusson 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

well you know as I stated before that "it could be a potential" if all the factors are right and E.S.D. could be as little as 5-7 volts to damage components and a couple hundred volts to feel the discharge on the nerves of your skin.

nice build. if you're gaming on a 1080p single monitor i would have got a 780 instead and saved the extra $200.

5herko submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Once I find a larger desk that'll be the plan!

ImAustin 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

VGA ALERT!

5herko submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

only to make sure it worked! replaced that with an dvi->hdmi cable.

ImAustin 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

Phew thanks for clearing that up, almost had a heart attack!

lurkenhard 2 points 16 months ago

AustinTheTimelord 1 point 16 months ago

Please get a new desk lol

5herko submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Some day soon! That desk is around 80 years old lol.

bradenpearce 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

good job on the build man hope to be joining you soon

Bartmanicus 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

As a Canadian would you be able to slay my taxes with that?

5herko submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

You can slay whatever you'd like!

obababoy 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

So you don't ever go over 80c while playing games? During Battlefield Hardline and Watchdogs I was hitting 90c on my ASUS R9 290 DCu2. I know they run a bit hotter but when I took the cover off the case(same as yours) it dropped down 10c. ARMA 3 only got up to 76c. the 290 is performing great though for $400 if I can just help the heat

Nice Build and you do really need a new desk. lol
