Description

Overall, The build went very smoothly and quickly. booted on the first try. the small form factor of the case makes cable management in the back difficult but manageable.

i am running 3x 1080p monitors right now but might exchange 2 of them for a 1440p and put my other 1080p in portrait mode.

i have full intentions of running SLI sometime soon once i figure out my temperatures with the fans since there is only 1x 120mm fan as an intake.

had 2 x 80mm fans as intake for the graphics card. replaced it with the 120mm. The 80mm fans didn't push as much air as the 120mm. And the 120mm is angled more towards the card. I had 780 SLI and when I replaced the 80mm's with the 120mm, the temps dropped ~8degrees on the top card. The cougar vortex fan I put in it is dead silent and since I am probably gonna stick with 1 card now, I'll keep the 120mm

The color matching in the PSU and liquid cooler really look billiant.

Yup. Really loved this case but there isn't a window option.

This may be a dumb question but what are the advantages of the motherboard armor kit?

Its aesthetics and supposed to help with heat dissipation. I haven't seen any real difference with it compared to without it. I choose it for looks and added durability of the mobo
