Description

This is my first build ever and it really was a fun experience building the rig. It took me about 6 hours (With plenty of breaks and screwing around) to completely build with OS and everything. This computer will mainly be used for gaming and animation purposes. I named it Warthog mainly because for some reason it reminded me of the A-10 Warthog (Thunderbolt II) which is a fat badass plane, built around a huge gun, can't really go wrong with that.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. :) I'll be adding more pictures soon.

Part Reviews

CPU

Perfect price for a really great processor.

CPU Cooler

Excellent cooler, really keeps the case cool, even though the case isn't that good when it comes to cooling.

Motherboard

Excellent mobo for the price, looks badass and really easy to setup.

Video Card

It's a GTX 980 what else could you want? (Other then a titan of course)

Case

Now this case is perfect size for what I wanted, the 120mm fans it comes prebuilt with are quiet and everything is really easy to set up wire management wise. Only complaints are that airflow doesn't seem to good with this case, and wire management is a pain in the *** when it comes to getting the wires to fit, needs more room.

Not a bad build but I just can't understand the complaint about the H440. This case has some of the best cable managment capabilities with rubber gromits, holding velcros and slots, as well as a special hidden area for your PSU. Maybe you are used to larger cases, but trust me, this has some of the ebst cable managment slots for a mid tower.

I think that he's simply complaining that you didn't have quite has much space behind the side panel at the back to stash cables, so unless you are quite smart with the cables, the side panel is a pain to put on. The H440 does have less space between the motherboard tray and the back side panel than most cases.

I have built in a couple of cases. Some more high end and some just simply awful cases. This might not have large amount of space but the space left behind the mobo tray leaves a comfortable amount of space for cables.

Yeah, it does, but you still have to be a bit smart about. It's just not quite as generous as other cases, and you can't just throw cables in and leave them, it requires a bit of cable management.

I think I managed my cables pretty well.

I agree that yes it does how the cable management capabilities are extremely helpful, I just like a little more room, but that's just my personal preference.

Well get a full tower. If you buy a mid tower expect mid tower capabilities and not compain about a mid not being as big as a full tower.
