The Snow Machine as i like to call it was initially built to help me understand the basic process of pc builds. However i took it up a notch and decided to make it my personal gaming machine also.
Boot up is really fast as the SSD powers up the OS in a blink of an eye and the 16gb ram helps push all that data pretty fast. Furthermore, the Snow Machine runs very cool even when under load. I have tried Witcher 3 as well as Assassins Creed Syndicate and The division beta, on ultra setting, and my FPS hasn't dropped below 45 fps thus far, and CPU and GPU temps have not exceeded 50 Degrees Celsius while under load. the maximum CPU temp i have reached was 48 degrees Celsius, and that had been on a hot summer day. Seems like the 7 case fans inclusive of the CPU water coolers push-pull configuration keeps the system running cool.
All cables have been managed pretty well to ensure maximum air circulation. overall i am pretty happy with my build and will consider changing my HDD to a SSD later on. Please do comment if you think something need improvement.
Please note that case is the Corsair Air 240 and Motherboard is the Gigabyte GA-H97M Gaming 3 which are both micro ATX
