Waiting for conformation on an ekwb EK-XLC predator 240 expandable AIO. then we'll see if i can get a better Overclock.

USE. This pc i would like to get into photo editing and some rendering of videos. but for now it just surfs webs and plays games on one monitor.

Part Reviews

Storage

i really like this m.2 interface. Gets the job done. Plus i got it for 39.99. Might save up for something faster.

Video Card

very nice card. No coil whine yet... like i've heard. plus in my Silent base 600 its real quiet anyway.

Case

this case is awesome. there isnt that many mounting points. in the back. but it will all be cleaned up easily enough.

Monitor

very nice monitor. great colors once you get the setting right.

Keyboard

very nice keyboard. keys are really quiet except for the space bar. all in all very solid keyboard.

Mouse

very nice mouse, lots of customization. had this mouse for 5 months and still haven't messed around with the weights yet. fits large hands nicely (IMO)

Not gonna lie, cable management is pretty spot on for your first build, especially you sleeving your your front panel connectors. Well done!

Its a very nice case, the orange is a nice accent, the front brushed platic is nice and the case in general is quite finger resistant. Some soapy water will take it right off. But the case layout is like older atx mid tower cases in early 2000s the 5.25 bays dont remove. And the hard drive cage mounting is solid on the bottom. But the rivets can be drilled and the hard drive cage is being removed. It is what im doing for my watercooling rig once all the parts arrive. I will also update once its complete. I bought a 5.25 to 3.5/2.5 harddrive bay adapter from ebay. So im putting all my drives in the 5.25 bays. A 280mm rad (277mm long) will fit in the front of the case with the modification. I will update this more once its complete. Seen some german guy put an aio in the front on youtube. So well see. Anyway i really like this case. I also have all fan locations covered by a fan with 2 cpu fans and i can say after a year very little dust has accumulated. The only downside is the rear psu filter being removed from behind the case but whatever. Lots of room for a 2.5 slot gtx 1080ti asus strix card.
