Description

Converted the old TV gaming system to mini itx for space savings

Also built another I5 3570K (the Thermaltake V1 case) see pics for size compare

Recently swapped everthing into V1 cases as the coolermaster case was getting hot inside (it is very cramped), both systems are now Thermaltake V1 (I recommend the thermaltake over the coolermaster even though it is a bit bigger, the air flow is a lot better). Also new power supply- replaced the power supply with Coolermaster Silent Pro 1200W

Update October 2016 Upgraded to liquid cooling and gtx 1060 3gb Overclock CPU to 4.2 ghz stable

Uhhh, why on earth would you put a 1200W PSU in a system that uses like 300Ws?

Left over PSU from another build, I tend to recycle parts a lot

THANK YOU for the comparison shot to the Thermaltake v1!!! I'm deciding between these two cases and was lucky enough to find this build/post.

No prob, the coolermaster size is smaller but the thermaltake has a lot more ventilation room and can fit a larger video card. I am upgrading to a gtx 1060 3gb today, will post an update

It is a power supply that was left over from a previous build (don't remember the name of the brand but it wasn't raidmax, maybe ?Eagle?). We recently replaced it with a new gold class power supply (model name escapes me at the moment)
