Description

This is my third completed build and I think the best yet.

Got a great deal on the two 970's from a friend for only $400.

I absolutely love the way this case looks even though wire management was a pain in the ***. The power supply covers are a nightmare to work with even though they look great.

Overclocked the CPU to 4.6ghz.

MSI Afterburner software makes it easy to overclock GPUs.

I plan on adding another 500gb ssd and possibly even a m.2 ssd.

I also want to get some sleeved extension cables.

That's pretty much reference temps so that is scorching hoot for a aftermarket card...

How good is the 400c? You complain about cable management but you did great so it is possibile. Apart from that how good are the temperatures?

Access to the motherboard inputs along the bottom where the power supply cover is, is almost nonexistent. It took some serious maneuvering and I even scraped up and damaged one of the cables trying to fit it through a space that was too small. Really the only issue is that damn power supply cover. It looks so good but it is not user friendly at all. There is a cutout in the middle for cables to go through but it was only practical for one of my cables to go through it. Other than that, the case is excellent. Extremely good airflow.

So if i drill small holes for cables in the back of the cover it should be ok. Thanks, i think i'm going to switch to this case

You could definitely do that as its only plastic and would be easy. There is one big ugly hole in the middle of the covers you could use, but I didn't like it.

I have two questions. First how is that motherboard. Is it any good. Did you have ant issues with it. And my second question is where did you buy the motherboard from.

I love the 400c! It looks so good. There are things about it I don't understand what corsair was thinking, especially with the power supply covers. Not very user friendly at all. But I still love it!

They barely fit and block the bottom connections of the motherboard. It was extremely hard to plug everything in. There is one giant hole, but I don't like all the wires coming out of it. Its really hard to see what I'm talking about with the second 970 in there. its blocking all of that from view anyway.

IS the 8GB really worth it on the 390? 1080P maxed out won't use 4GB, 1440P maxed out won't use up 4GB. 2160P will exceed 4GB but the 390 does not have the processing power to do 4K at 60 FPS ( the gamers minimum target framerate) even in crossfire (maxed out graphic settings)

The 8GB on the 390 seems quite redundant imo. The 970's will use less power and still has better DX11 drivers...

The only reason I'd recommend 390 is it's potential better performance when DX12 is properly implemented and Async Compute only found on AMD cards are utilised.

At 1440p a 980ti destroys everything...
