Description

Been wanting to build a computer for a while. I Decided on a mini ITX case because i wanted to be able to take it from room to room without as much hassle. It was a good learning experience that a enjoyed. Only problems I had were cable management, which with such a small case I didn't expect anything different.

Really, really want to build in that case, or the Aerocool DS. Why the i7 & $200 board, if I can ask? I guess if budget doesn't matter, you can do whatever. Just curious. +1 from me

MicroCenter was having an in-store pick up deal for 250, decided i may as well grab it since it was such a good deal. I wanted a quality motherboard and this one sounded really nice from what I read. I like the features it came with.

Ah, gotcha. I remember seeing that i7 listed for $199 end of last year, pick up only...needless to say I was/am a bit jealous of folks who live near a microcenter.

Like the rig very much.... but building on towels could be a potential E.S.D. onto delicate components. Seeing that it works is awesome though.

Woops! I'll be sure and not do that next time. Glad nothing bad came of it.

It's all cool if your only doing a one time build for the computer to last for many years to come.

Do you have to CPU Temps.? Would be awesome to know how hot the CPU is getting underload

so far after an hour of farcry 3 maxed I've gotten it up to 49C. I'm gonna keep playing and see where it peaks.

I have never had E.S.D caused from Towels.

well you know as I stated before that "it could be a potential" if all the factors are right and E.S.D. could be as little as 5-7 volts to damage components and a couple hundred volts to feel the discharge on the nerves of your skin.

nice build. if you're gaming on a 1080p single monitor i would have got a 780 instead and saved the extra $200.

Can you manually enter prices? It'll give people a better reflection of true cost.

So you don't ever go over 80c while playing games? During Battlefield Hardline and Watchdogs I was hitting 90c on my ASUS R9 290 DCu2. I know they run a bit hotter but when I took the cover off the case(same as yours) it dropped down 10c. ARMA 3 only got up to 76c. the 290 is performing great though for $400 if I can just help the heat
