Description

The NZXT Source 210 w/ Window ATX Mid Tower Case is simply incredible for the price. Simply blown away by how well this build and cable management went with the case.

For my first build in 6 to 7 years, id say everything went flawless, except for the fact that the Cooler Master Hyper 212 + is literally a half of a centimeter from touching the window of the case. The specs on the case say it should comfortably fit, but that is NOT the case once motherboard standoffs are included....

Also, if you are wondering how i acquired the Motherboard and Memory for such cheap prices, the answer would be that a very generous fellow PC Gaming enthusiast (with more time and dispensable income than I) who I work with sold them to me after only 3 weeks of use to the motherboard and 2 years of use on the ram. Fantastic deal, I know!

I plan to add 2 more 140mm exhaust fans to the roof of the case (Noctua) and one more Enermax intake in front (unless you guys would recommend other fans that perform well for less money! Also, i am considering adding an LED Kit and a black sticker silhouette of the Quake 3 Arena "Excellent" logo on the window. Other than this, the build is complete. I will not be overclocking anything.

Why did you go with Ultimate. Not a big deal just curious. Other than that you did a great job on cable management!

i'm not that sure, other than we already owned it and i bought a new license for it. Anything negative about Ultimate?

Thanks about the cable management. I tried to take decent pictures as well.

Oh you had a license. Nothing bad about Ultimate, it is actually better than Home Premium I was just asking because it is more expensive.

I've heard that having a full kit of 4 ram sticks instead of buying 2 kits of 2 ram sticks improves functionality and compatibility, other than that a great build! I like how it has a fairly loose color scheme too. Too much of one color gets overwhelming.
