This build started out in a Rosewill Line-M case with a Gigabyte r9 270x and the stock CPU cooler. I first upgraded the CPU cooler to the Noctua. I then upgraded the 270x to the Asus Strix r9 390 and, most recently, from the Line-M to the Corsair SPEC-01 case. The case I have and use is not listed on PCPP, so I used the SPEC-02 as a visual reference. They are VERY similar, the SPEC-01 has 1 USB 3.0, SPEC-02 has 2 USB 3.0.
I have played with OC'ing this thing... but the motherboard doesn't seem to like it when I do. I slightly regret going mid-grade with the motherboard. I probably should have spent a little more and gotten something a little more... capable...? The 390 is more forgiving as far as OC'ing goes. The Asus GPU tweakII works well. Plays everything I have at full res (2560x1440) High settings with minimal AA at 60fps. I play AC:BF, GTA V, Just Cause 3, Shadow of Mordor, MGSV:Phantom Pain, Tomb Raider...
By default, this MB UC's this Ram to 1600, I do have XMP enabled so it is running at 2400. I've kept the CPU at stock, running at 3.5GHz with 3.9GHz capable from boost. As shown in the pics, I am using the red LED fan that came with the SPEC-01, bringing my fan total to 4. I am satisfied with this system's setup. It does what I ask it to without issue.
I hope to eventually put a GTX 980 in this and move the r9 390 to my other system.
Just purchased a Gigabyte 980 ti gaming to replace the r9 390. Surgery will commence tomorrow! I cant wait to experience the results!
