All the parts work well. My plan was to build a strong and silent Gaming Computer. It was not easy to build this into a small case because the graphics card and radiador are big parts.

Problems: *heat and some drivers

Q:Are you going to overclock? A:I do not need because this is already a powerful PC Q:how quiet computer is this? A: Standard 41db and Asus AI Suite silent mode enabled 38db (This turns off the 2 Fans) Q: what about the start-up speed? A: it takes 7 seconds to go the desktop

Nice parts, may want to think about upgrading to at least a roomy mid tower case though. Not that anyone would be looking in that thing but you, but a nice mid-tower would make your rig look much cleaner

Cool build! You should really consider tidying up your case (cable management is pretty crap) because it will improve airflow. +1

Dude... you need to get a bigger case. That cable management is atrocious. I would suggest the Fractal R5 or possibly the NZXT H440. Both are excellent silent cases, but I would suggest going with the R5 if you were going to upgrade your case, as it has superior air flow in my experiences. Nonetheless, great build +1

That's the downside of using the Prodigy M. It's so damn compact that it looks terrible on the inside. I used it on my first build http://pcpartpicker.com/b/6GycCJ

Yeah it's kind of a shame too. It's a really good looking case!

I do not care what it looks like inside as long as it works :)

Cable management important or useful in a small case?

It keeps things from overheating

Is the 230 mm supposed to be exhaust?
