I left Windows in 2000 because of the frustratingly buggy OS and crappy apps and moved to Macintosh. I was quite happy with using Mac for video editing and photo editing, but this year after the release of Overwatch I got back into serious gaming. Since Steve Jobs has passed away the hardware development Apple is peddling is an insult to Mac users. The latest hardware from Apple is geared to suit aesthetics and making existing designs more efficient, not overall better performance. So when my 2010 iMac logic board almost crashed I revisited building another PC. This is only the second PC I've ever built and things have changed so much since 2000. After doing some research I didn't realize PC cases are so much more attractive and compact than years ago. Revisiting Windows 10, I see how refined Windows OS has become and it seems just as "bug-free" as Mac's El Capitan OS, so I made the jump back to PC and opted for a build that has beauty and the brawn.
The right side PSU shroud is painted white and the Corsair logo on the left PSU shroud was filled in with white acrylic.
I debated between the NZXT S340 Elite and the Corsair 400c but settled on the 400c for the superior cooling potential, the space in the front case for push/pull on the AIO and overall consistent branding of products. My only gripes with this case are 1) Cable management is quite cramped, even with a modular PSU and 2) SSD rack should have been facing down to make cables easier to route.
I love this new build and I am very, very happy with it. I'll add some more RAM probably in a year after my wallet has recovered, lol
