my laptop couldn't run 'mechwarrior online' anymore so i built this. it works, quite well.
originally had a 'CM hyper 212 evo' on it but i didn't like how close the back plate was to the case. the hole there isn't big enough to reveal the whole cpu cooler mounting, my one complaint on the case.
MWO isn't a very burly or demanding game relative to some. no overclocking, intel box cooler: all temps stay under 50c, cpu usage never breaks 50%. using about 200-400watts with games, 80-200watts with anything else (youtube, netflix, vlc, etc...) eventually i'll do something harder on it. tried 3dmark demo once, didn't work, i think i need to close desktop performance monitors(?).
did the whole deal with vlc to be able to play blu-ray movies (this is just a "burner" so needs additional software for playback capability) but i only have these 2 older chinese kung fu movies. didn't work, i don't know if i did it wrong or these movies just aren't in the library you download for vlc.
didn't have a camera when i hooked everything up so, no pictures of the back.
