Description

Everything worked great outside the case, but the fan proved to be too big inside the case. Although I'm a little disappointed, the money I'll get back is going to be used to get the OS. Other than that, it's a killer first time build. The optical drive is kinda loud, the case itself has no cable management potential whatsoever, and the power supply isn't strong enough after hooking up the single case fan. Which in for future builds, I'll have to consider all fans, and peripherals by getting a big power supply, and a big case to hold everything, even though compact is nice, it just didn't go as well as I expected, but great build nonetheless.
EDIT: Had to do a lot of RMAs in my finished build. A little bit of a hassle, but everything worked completely fine afterwards. Disregard the power supply wasn't strong enough, but something was wrong with it when I got it.

Nice build! I would've gone with a better case for about $20 more. Either Corsair 200R or NZXT Source 220 or 210 for better cable management, air flow and a bottom mounted psu. But other wise good build and great parts

How come the Hyper was not in the case did it not fit? Iam thinking of buying one with that case.

no it did not fit in the case. closing the case with the panel would rub against the top of the cooler.

yea i mean if you want to get that cooler, just get a bigger case. or get a cooler like the xigmatek loki, or something similar to that size.
