Started out wanting to simply move over parts over from my hackintosh build i did around 2013 & ended up making several upgrades
Fell in love with the Lian Li PC-08 after getting my first glimpse of it via the hardwarecanucks youtube channel, but couldnt justify the purchase due to price and sat on it for a few weeks before finally deciding that the case was more important than my financial health.
Yes, there are several design flaws that are well documented but this thing is flat out gorgeous imo and im happy i made the plunge everytime i sit down at my desk. All of lian li negligence gives the case character ! the glass if half full !
..cries self to sleep thinking about $400 worth of food..
Im sure were all in the same boat with the self gratification of completing a build and this has honestly been alot of fun, made alot of purchases and probably returned more but im happy with my final outcome. Did alot of thinking about upgrading to skylake but figured the performance gains wouldnt be worth the cost, also GPU was a tough decision which i still may turn around on (for a 980ti) but the g1 970 is working fine on my apple monitor, im sure some titles are getting sub 60 fps but its honestly hasnt bothered much if any on far cry primal or the division (latest games im playing)
*the drive cage in the back of the case.
*gaming 7 only has one usb 3.0 header on the board.
*Neweggs return policy.
*Corsair doesnt make a type 4 24pin sleeved connector.
Been lurking this site for years and will probably start piecing together the parts for my first attempt at a custom loop, lots of inspiration on this site.
Also in the market for a nice bluetooth headset, a solution for the gym and my computer would be amazing, i know ppl say bluetooth audio isnt all that great but im no audiophile, i would just prefer the convenience.
Lastly i would like to formally open the doors to the very exclusive "my chassies cost more than my gpu" master race.
