Overall it has great performance. Overclocking at 4.4 GHz but probably could push more. The GPU was a little big, but made it fit with a little effort. Spent around $2000 around the time I ordered parts. Would like to get colored power cords and some sort of lighting system to finish it off.

I really like your choice of motherboard. The option to do SLI in the future is a good thing. I also find the look of it without LED's. The dark and foreboding look really works for your build. I could only recommend some dark red led fans for the front of the case.

What did you do to make it fit ?

chanceaclark submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Just by angling it in. Took some patience, but made it work

Are you running a push-pull config on your radiator? Curious since I'm planning on doing a similar setup to yours.

chanceaclark submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

He, sorry for the late reply on this. I just did a simple pull in through the front and a push through the top and back. Main reason for pulling air through the radiator is the that it pulls cooler air allowing to OC my CPU more. You could put the radiator on the top to push air through but spacing was an issue for me already.

how did u fit the strix?

chanceaclark submitter 1 Build 2 points 4 months ago

Angling it it. Don't think I'll want to do it again for SLI.

What is angling it in? Sorry english is not my first language. I am interested of buying this case too, and having the same gpu as yours..

Finlay_Massie 1 point 3 months ago

Sorry, one more question, would there be room to have sleeved cables to the GPU with how close to the window it is??

chanceaclark submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Totally! It will be bumped up against the glass though. There is like a finger's worth of room in between the window and the GPU.

Thank you for posting it. Was wondering if Asus RX 480 Strix would fit in my Corsair 240 Air.
