Clean build man! Do you think that your AIO cooler would fit mounted at the top? Or does it only fit in the front?

Hey Bigchorizo,

Thanks! I have tried to mount my AIO cooler in top but it doesn't fit because of my RAM. There is only 4,6 cm (1,8 in) of space.

Love your setup! I hope with all that you do some sort of design like graphic/web/video/3d and not just for gaming ;)

Very clean setup and very reasonable component choice. Cable management is decent and could be worked on more. Have fun with your pc !

I was looking at similar parts for my build. How is the case? I was thinking about getting that but, instead went with the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M (It was cheaper).

It is a wonderful case and I really love the large side panel (slightly tinted). The quality is superb. When I open the side panel it vibrates a bit, but that is because of the strong magnets.

There was enough room for cable management at the back. The hole in the CPU cover is a bit too far to the left, in my opinion, so that the cables cannot go straight down. Air Flow is good and the dust filters are easy to remove. The front panel is quite hard to remove.

Overall it’s an excellent case with plenty of opportunities for expansion. The Phanteks Enthoo Pro M is also an perfect choice!

Nice build man! The side window looks sweet and I'm sure when you get some accent lighting it will look that much better! If possible, you should mount the power stripes under your desk and route some of the cables on your desk to give your setup a much cleaner look.

How are the temps? Is the case good and easy to install things in?

Idle (5% load right now):

  • All my CPU cores are below 20 Degrees.
  • SSD is 26 Degrees, but it's out of airflow on the back of the case.
  • Geforce GTX 970 is 25 Degrees. On load I really have never seen it above 45 Degrees.

The case quality is superb and its really easy to install things in! Although the case is relatively small for an atx version. so it's a tight fit.

Really nice PC, I was thinking of migrating my PC into this case! I noticed on your wishlist you said you wanted to get Corsair SP120 fans to mount to the top and the rear of your case. If so you should be getting the AF120. SP stands for static pressure and are designed to be on things like your CPU cooler, but if its going in the case it would be better to get AF (Air flow) to get the best for your buck! (They look exactly the same apart from a slight deference on the blades)
