Has all live streams at a time when only truant schoolchildren could watch it.

But seriously, the stream is in the middle of the work and school day for most people. But it's recorded, so no big deal I guess.

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 8 points 1 month ago

Yeah, that's just kind of how it works out.. It's in the middle of our work day as well. :)

SilverWolf149 5 points 1 month ago

Ahh, don't take it the wrong way. For me it's the middle of the school day, and by the time I get home the stream's probably finished. But I'm glad that you guys take the time to actually do cool stuff with the community.

(don't) quit your job / drop out of school

SilverWolf149 3 points 1 month ago

StarBlazer457 2 points 1 month ago

Nice! Where at?

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I agree. I wish I could watch too...

rhali8 2 Builds 4 points 1 month ago

I read the title and was like AMD released the 460X?!?! But what I found was something even more awesome! That case looks godly :3 Can't wait! :)

dragoon20005 3 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Murphdog95 1 point 1 month ago

just wear Venom gloves, that's what I do when handling any side panel glass or not

jipster69 4 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Could we possibly have a new contender for most over used and often Featured case on PCPP... the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Glass?!

JK... That Phanteks is pretty legit though

BossRSA 2 points 1 month ago

Nothing beats Phanteks EVOLV TG :P

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

My custom case beets it tho......

80-wattHamster 2 points 1 month ago

Does it beet it... with beets?

BossRSA 1 point 1 month ago

Excuse me asking, but what custom case?

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Just wait when I build my next PC. I will make one of THE best cases ever made. (seriously) It's gonna be coka cola theemd and will feature tons of coka cola cans!

islandg@m3r 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

The evolve is nice, but to me the Luxe Tempered is better IMO, comes in 2 colors, black and Gunmetal and has some more wiggle room space wise. I'll be getting mine when Newegg gets it in stock All rdy pre-ordered mine =) for my upcoming X99 Build. Though this might change, because even though I am not thrilled about KLake's release...the Z270 mobos that ASUS leaked...look...Epic...

BossRSA 1 point 1 month ago

The Luxe is just too big for me lol

islandg@m3r 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Think the Luxe is big, my current case the the Enthoo Primo....that s**t is ginormous LOL talk about a Super Tower. Only reason I am parting with it for the Luxe is 3 reasons

  1. LED Customization
  2. Tempered Glass (Smoked)
  3. Has 3 SSD Slots on the glass side that can show off 3 of your SSDs, If you have that Much

  4. (Bonus Reason) - The Color is Different and I never seen or made a build with the Gunmetal Grey Color, can't w8 my build is going to be sick =)

BossRSA 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah, the Primo is ginormous. They look pretty cool, I just don't have enough space on my desk for any full tower :P

commodore64 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I say either this case or Elite S340 will be overused case of 2017.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

When your storage is more expensive than your GPU +1

LOD_DTOM 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

nice. never enough storage.

StickyStix 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

The case looks slick! I can't wait to watch you guys build in it! :)

AwesomeBuilderXE1901 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

That's slick. That's ... so cool. Wish I could tune in ...but it's at an ungodly time.

Sonuchi 1 point 1 month ago

OoooO that's a pretty case.

dommoass 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

One perk of living in the UK is these streams are 8PM for us!

Love the livestreams though, wished you did more!

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks -- glad you enjoy them! We've got a couple planned in December, and we're looking to stream more often again after the new year.

SilverWolf149 1 point 1 month ago

Curses!!!

Oskar_ 1 point 1 month ago

You gotta love the greatest nation :)

RandomPerson987 1 point 1 month ago

You spent more money on the SSD then you did on the video card xD

snoopers 1 point 1 month ago

I really like the case. it looks so nice and everything you put in it gets its fair share of pride.

LatamirDigital 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

sees Be Quiet Cooler You had me there.

stormgav 1 point 1 month ago

I chuckled a bit when I saw that you name was BoyScout. Were you actually a boy scout or did you just kinda adopt the name?

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Yep, I was a scout in my youth. Great memories. That said, I picked up the name when I started online gaming as I liked projecting the idea of always being prepared. :)

dominorider2431 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I am a scout too! Having just crossed over, I am only at second class though.

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Very cool. Try to stick with it if you can. While the journey to Eagle can be challenging, I'm glad I didn't give up. I learned a lot in those years.

GentlemanShark 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

I was a Boy Scout for a while until I joined the Sea Scouts, and I agree, it was well worth it, I learned a lot.

auldae 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

This case looks like my speed. You have to be really on point with the cable management using the 570x. Not that I don't still want one or anything.

Potatoman01 1 point 1 month ago

That case is $200 here in lowly Aus. RIP Nice build ill be sure to watch on YouTube

LOD_DTOM 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

wow that is a really nice case.

crookz_n_castlez 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Will you also do a build in the 570x? I know it looks kind of similar but the 570x looks glorious!

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Maybe... ;)

Mr_Majestic 1 point 1 month ago

im just glad im in a timezone where it comes on after school

jackamick 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I'm so jealous of this case. I got a 400C right before it came out.

jsoutherland89 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I'll miss the live stream bu I'm looking forward to watching the build video after work tonight!

serfeldon 1 point 1 month ago

What a beautiful case. I have seen other reviews. 4 Tempered glass panels. How amazing is that. Pretty good choices on parts for the build too. This will be streamed on twitch right?

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yep -- we will stream and archive the VOD on Twitch. A summary video should be on YouTube at a later date.

The 460X has two tempered glass panels -- the front and the side. You might be thinking of it's big brother, the Crystal 570X RGB which also has glass on the top and back panels.

Enrico411 1 point 1 month ago

Another great stream!

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Thanks for watching -- glad you enjoyed it!

xpatriatedtexan 1 point 1 month ago

Just wanted to say thanks for the stream. It was really enjoyable. One quick thought and one question if I may...

  1. I'm probably a bit older than the average around here and I have a ton of CDs (literally hundreds) and usually purchase my music by physical means, so I'm not a fan of the movement to do away with ODDs. I burn all of the physical copies to iTunes. However, this case is beautiful, and I suppose I could always get an external USB CD player if I use it for my next build but with a case this large though...why don't manufacturers offer a single spot for an ODD? A single slim slot-feed side or front facing ODD on the floor really wouldn't have changed the dimensions much...even if it meant forgoing the bottom 3.5 drive slot to use.

  2. I've got a Corsair 650D which was awesome for my first attempt at a build but it seems way too big for my desk. I believe this case is about 2" shorter but was wondering what you thought of its overall size...is it something you would put on your desk next to your monitor or would you stash it under the desk once the build was complete.

JustARandomPancake 1 point 1 month ago

In response to #1: It's a cost and aesthetics thing; ODD (of course) have a slight cost associated with them, and, seeing as the majority of people don't use them anymore removing the ODD slot is an easy way to wipe of a few cents from each case. And, from my point of view, an unused ODD slot is just ugly (especially the slim slot loading one on my ft03-B Mini).

jsoutherland89 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Barry's "basic" cable management is better than my best attempts which can take longer than I care to admit lol

Regardless- great stream as always, fellas. Keep it up!

darthrambo152 1 point 1 month ago

tfw you've been eyeing this case for a while and liked it more than any other case but the inevitable influx of people to build with the case now that its been put in the spotlights makes you want to find a new case

LOD_DTOM 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Did this case come with a rear fan?

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

No, it just comes with the 3 on the front. The LED controller has room for 3 more though if you want to add matching fans for the rear or top exhaust.

concurrentflame 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah. ALot of us missed this b/c of timing.

dashrsp 1 point 1 month ago

I'd love to see your final cable management solution. I need some ideas before I start in the Inwin 805...

BoyScout staff submitter 6 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

We should have Barry's cable management time lapse uploaded soon.
