Customer requested a sleek build for gaming and streaming along with the ability to edit video and mix audio. Wanted to have RGB lighting without going overkill.
Everything went together really well for the most part.
The NVME hard drives are really great for space saving, especially with the monster GeForce card in here. (We thought about mounting the card vertically but then the heat would be exhausted directly at the glass.)
I ended up needing to purchase the NZXT Internal USB hub after realizing that the motherboard only comes with 2 internal USB headers and I needed 3 for the cooler, case and corsair rgb node. The hub adds 3 internal pinout usb ports along with 2 regular usb ports. So there's room for more later on down the road.
The NZXT case looks really clean from the front glass side. The only issue with wiring that I ran into was for the cooler. The two cables that plug into the board are a little short, and I ended up having to run them along the front of the Corsair logo on the cooler. Not a huge deal but it's a mark against aesthetics for me.
Overall I think the build came out great for what the customer wanted with his budget.
