Description

The case sucked to work with, not a fun build. End result is very nice though. I originally had an i5-9600k and an MSI Gaming X 1660 Super GPU in it but upgraded both of those components today to an i7-9700k and an MSI Gaming X RTX 2060 Super. Much more pleased with the additions.

The case, once put together, is a beautiful site. All tempered glass on all sides but the bottom. Really lets the RGB shine through without being overbearing or too bright. I especically love the 3 Teamforce RGB SSDs picture on the top of case. Add an HP Full HD 1ms 144Mhz G-Sync compatible 24 inch monitor to sit under my existing 32 inch cureved Samsung on the wall. The I7 sits at 35 degrees Celius idle and 80 and under heavy load. I was calling this case every name in the book while installing the hardware and running cables, but now that it is done, I like this case a lot. Loads of room.

Rip part pricing. A 2060S at that budget, yikes. And why 32gb for gaming? 16gb would have been fine.

Couldn't find any TT RGB Plus compatible 4Gb sticks and wanted to fill up all the DRAM slots. Plus, since I'm all SSD storage, having that much RAM ensures little to no paging.

I consider my self to be a casual gamer and with what I've already dumped into this, coming across a 2060 Super at under $390 seemed like a good deal. But it was an Amazon but if I come across something better in the next 20 days, I'll certainly have no issue returning this one and paying a little more. You would have really balked at the first revision of this build which had a MSI GTX 1660 Super Gaming GPU and an I5 9600k and s 1800$ price tag.

Hmm, sure. I can give you my rig's list. I built my rig to maintain some looks and RGB but not to go overkill in either way. I wanted to try mitx(2nd rig this one is) and I had a budget of 1200 quid. Personally, I would recommend going mATX or ATX to have enough money for better parts like a GPU or CPU upgrade unless you really want mITX.

I will explain some decisions now. The point of this build to achieve 1440p144hz on most titles so either it was the 5700xt or 2070S at this budget. 5700xt unfortunately has a lot of driver issues and because of that, it isn't viable imo so the 2070S is.the next best option. The 2060S struggles a bit more to achieve 1440p144hz so I decided not to consider it. Why a 3600X over a 3600? The 3600x costed about 18 pounds more and had a promo at the time, to get a free copy of Outer World's and accompanied with the better stock cooler, was a good choice over the 3600 at the time. I accidentally bought the non-rgb version of that ram over the RGB version.

Hi, how have you been with ADATA XPG SSD? I have bought a 256GB, but I have just seen that it seems that they generate heating problems since they are RGB and their heatsink is not very efficient.

no overheating issues, but the rgb is not controllable. just the default rainbow wave is what i get. tried on 2 different motherboards, msi and asrock. not picked up by mystic lights or polychrome. even the official xpg rgb controller utility off of their site fails to do anything with them. as purely SSDs, I'm satisfied, no issue. but had i known that the rgb sync issues existed, i would have bought something else.

as a caveat, the way i have mine setup, they don't get much usage. once I'm booted up, they remain relatively dormant. if they were the only drives i had in there, it may be a different situation.
