Description

UPDATED Pics 12-16 Show my old case

!!!!!!!!!!!!!ATTENTION!!!!!!! I WILL BE UPGRADING THE BUILD WITH AN INTEL I7 6700K WITH NEW PSU, MOBO, RAM, CORSAIR LIQUID COOLER & MAYBE A CROSSFIRE SETUP VERY SOON!!!!

The use of the machine was for handling high multitasking, and to be able to play any game on Ultra with no issues or lag at all while being on a budget.

I actually have the ROSEWILL RISE. It has a lot amount of cable management room and has exceptional cooling potential. It fits any video card you put in it. My r9 280x is just a little over 12 inches and it fits just fine.

Now, when it came to installing the CM Hyper 212 evo onto the MOBO, it was a bit strange since the screws wouldn't screw in all they way, but was able to fix it. Everything else fit just fine.

Overall, great build for the bang and I can play BF4, Crysis 3, COD, Far Cry 4 with ease on Ultra settings.

If I were to make any changes, NONE\

I did have an older case for this build (Corsair Spec 02) and I had a Dwyane Wade bobblehead on the hard drive bays supporting the GPU.

Oh my god. That prop to hold the GPU from sagging is amazing!

Turn the cooler so the air is flowing out the back.

The spec series cases have the motherboard so close to the top that the evo doesn't fit. So you have to mount it that way.

Great use of budget! I'm looking at using the Spec-series case for a client's build soon, how did you fare with cable management?

I have one, and from experience, if they're looking for fantastic cable management, these aren't the cases you want, not a whole lot of options. Fractal makes really good cases with both design and fantastic cable management

Let's just say you have to be really organized and have everything planned out. It was a tight squeeze when I put the back panel on. but everything fit just fine.

To be honest, I don't plan on overclocking. Everything seems to be running pretty stable at really good temps.

he does have a 970 board, so he will be LUCKY if he gets anything over 4.4. i have a 970 board and hit 4.3 before it started crapping.

maybe its just that certain ships can only hit a certain voltage... im sorry, but nice OC, especially with that board.

yeah, i was going off of what i heard of the 970 boards, their 4+1 mobo design. not good for really high OC's
