Description

I'd like to thank my friend Pawel Badziak for his help and consultancy provided during both project and building phase.

I use stock CPU Cooler, and CPU itself is not yet overclocked. I don't use as much power, and all games I use it for don'r exceed 60 fps. (due Display). I'm happy with such result, and I don't plan to change it as long as 4K gaming displays are so expensive.

RAM is not to big for this build, I got lucky and bough exactly the same model as provided in the List. It fits.

Hadron air was the must in this build, I wanted to have console size gaming PC and I have it. I could only accomplish it with GTX 980, best GPU available at the time.

If you thing 500 SSD is not enough, well. I'm not hoarder for files, and with Internet speed 100 mb/s, there is no need for HDD.

My read write speed is 6 gb/s, thanks to Samsung software. AND I LOVE IT :D I don't even see Windows welcome screen on boot :P

I really enjoy how small that whole thing turns out.

Haven't used up my 512GB of SSD space yet either. And it has been some years.

(If perchance you ever need a spare GPU cooler/fan I have a pair of those in a box)

There are two fans up top, one pump air in and other one out. Nice to meet other non hoardering person :D

If you needed more space you could stick another SSD in there, but if you wanted a mechanical drive, you'd probably have to go external. And hey, maybe you could blast that stock cooler w/ some black paint, make it look better.

Nice build though. Love that case!

Hell in my latest mITX build I went with two 2.5" laptop HDD and an SSD for boot. It all fits on the back of the motherboard.

I'll plan to throw more 2.5"SSD's when they will get very cheap :)

More SSD's :D I found that Samsung SSD software slows down to the slowest drive you have in the build. Paweł (my pal) have both SSD and HDD under same Samsung Magician software and he get "only" 2gb read write speed. I'll rather stick with SSD than ;)

i'd HIGHLY recommend getting a CPU cooler other than the stock one if you're going to be over-clocking the CPU

otherwise fantastic build +1

Sure thing brother! I don't want to do overclocking without such comfort. I would to stressed to use my machine ;)

That graphics card looks snug

That is exactly how it is. No problems though, if you have rear exhaust GPU. I wouldn't build this with other kind of GPU cooling.

I thought you couldnt overclock with an H97 motherboard. I thought you needed a Z97 one. Also, isnt a 500w psu too little for that card and overclock? I thought the minimum recommended was about 550 or 600 for that card. I want a similar build but Im worried about the psu...

At the moment I have no need to overclock what so ever.

The "H" designation signifies that the motherboard doesn't have overclocking capabilities. That's basically the difference between it and its "Z" counterpart. The "K" designation means that the CPU is unlocked and comes with the premium price of overclockability. I got hassled in the comments about this same mistake because I could have gone with the standard "non-K" and saved the money on other parts of the build.

Hehehe, I get your point. However I run all my games on Windows. I find a similarity over there :P

While calling your PC an XBox is blasphemy (I was a PS Fanboy and PC trumps all), That is a slick piece of hardware you're sporting there. The price is a bit steep, especially considering the options out there, but overall, it's a good, sturdy, and pretty build.
