Description

Just built last Friday, run for 2 days, trying on design work and COD. The Ableconn M.2 to PCI express 3.0*4 adapter helped to eliminate the M.2 shared SATA interface for just 30 bucks. The USB 3.1 is not supported by the case. Another concern is the graphic card, it only has one DVI to plug in to apply the card, you will need a DVI to HDMI cable to connect to the monitor. For EVGA 1080 TI FTW3, the fans will not spin under 60 degree C, I have opened the precision to define a custom curve for the fans.

Oh my, that photo is only half visible. A new photo plus a couple of more would be lovely. Also very interesting about the Ableconn M.2 PCI express. Otherwise, your part list looks good.

Great parts list, although I am confused on a few things.
I am not sure I understand the Ableconn card. The Ableconn does seem like a great card for older systems to utilize M.2, but he MB you have supports two M.2 slots. You may want to consider using the onboard SATA ports 3 & 4 for the BluRay and Barracuda drives. These two ports are not shared with any other connections on the MB. This would allow use of either or both of the on-board M.2 slots without the PCIE card. Also your GPU and Monitor both support DVI, HDMI and Displayport connections without a cable with different ends.

Maybe I am missing some info... ? But GREAT PARTS! Keep building! More Pictures!
