Description

Finally turned my dream build of five months to reality. Student of Computer Science so I use it mainly for Programming and some Gaming. I had purchased the MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard before the Tomahawk MAX but somehow it won't boot to BIOS a few days later. Replaced it with this one along with a Bluetooth adapter, and it's been all good for a week now. A few BSODs mainly after I boot up and launch Chrome immediately for Netflix/DAZN (VIDEO_INTERNAL_SCHEDULER_ERROR). Tried updating the Drivers and disabling H/W acceleration, without success.

Overall, pretty happy with the build, I feel I have not overspent on any of my parts. I know I'll get asked this question - Why 1080p? Because I have a PS4 Slim which looks terrible on a 1440p monitor. I live in a dorm so I have no space to get a TV in, even if I wanted to.

Feel free to ask any questions.. I'd be happy to reply to them.

Is that fan configuration intentional? They're all configured to take cold air in, but none to push them out. You probably want to reverse the back and top fans to push warm air out of your case.

Hi, this was my first build, so I had no clue if the fan configuration was super important. This may sound dumb but my thought process was to get as much cold air in as I can, although I realize now that it may be incorrect. I'll make the changes you've suggested and post an update here. Thank You!

The thinking is not that bad, but keep in mind, that the hot air needs to get our somehow. Sure, there are some small gaps here and there, but you won't get the hot air out of the case fast enough. Would've been interesting to see if the new configuration actually affects your temperatures and if so, how much they do.
