Description

This is my first ever build. I wanted a powerhouse gaming computer, and so far that's exactly what it's been.

Looks great, I'd recommend reinstalling the cpu cooler to have the fan on the other side because it is fighting for air with the back exhaust fan in that orientation.

Yeah, I realized that and have since switched it. Thanks for the advice!

Only a GTX 1080? Where's the GTX 420ti?

Just kidding, great build!

Your heatsink is on the wrong way. Turn it around 180o . Might also want to put the top fan as an intake at the front instead.

Haha, I noticed that eventually, and it has since been flipped. Thanks for the advice!

Simple but beautiful ^_^

Quick questions: This case will have negative pressure, due to the 2 fans blowing out (rear and top fans). My questions are:

Is that a problem for you? How do you manage to fight back that negative pressure (when idle and when under load [ex: gaming])? How are your temps on the CPU and GPU (once again while idle and while under load)?

+1 and looking forward to your answer.

Looks good, but if I were you I would have gotten an R5 1600 for 100 dollars less, and used the extra 100 dollars towards a 1080Ti. Better multi-threaded performance and better gaming performance for less / the same price.
