I built this to replace my aging laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R) as it was no longer meeting my needs. I use it mainly for 3d rendering, photo editing and gaming. ^(and ^reddit)
I purchased everything without noticing the incompatibility warning between the case and the cooler, I only noticed when I was putting it together and saw the clearance on the side of the box. I ended up putting the cooler on sideways and it just fits, the top of one of the heatpipes slightly touches the window.
I put in an old 80Gb drive to make cloning it onto an SSD easier when I can afford to get one. I will also get a better screen (1080p) and use my current one as a secondary.
Overall I am very pleased with it, it all runs within the limits at 4.3Ghz, I could probably bump it up a bit if I adjusted the voltage, all I did was bump the multiplier up to 21.5x.
The benchmarks and temperature tests were done with a case temp of 26°C.
EDIT1: Fixed cables as best I can.
EDIT2: I have been given an overheating WD black drive from a NAS. I have installed it directly in front of my intake fan to prevent any temperature issues.
