Description

This is pretty much an everyday computer that I use mostly for editing documents and occasionally play a few games. I have made a few changes along the way, originally I had an optical drive in, but removed it later, have made some changes as far as case fans, was using some Cooler Master ones, now I am using some Fractal ones. Originally was using the stock cpu cooler, and have since installed the CM Hyper 212 EVO. Nice little everyday computer that can handle all I throw at it and then some.

Fix them cables! Tie loose cables together in a bundle, tie cables going in the same direction together, keep as much of those cables behind the mobo tray as you can.

Unfortunately with this case, though I like it, there is very little to no room behind mobo tray but I have some ideas in mind. Thanks for comments.

you can always hide unused cables in drive bays/cages

Are you planning to install a HDD or you have enough with the SSD's? Nice PC, by the way.

Not sure, at the moment the ssds are enough for now and I have them in Raid 0, I really do not do much storage, but who knows maybe in the future I will add more. But atm I do not have the use for a HDD.

I cringed when I saw the Intel SSDs. They're so overpriced :( Also, this depends on when you built this computer, but for the last few months the 7870 XT has been hovering around 140-160 and that would be just as good/better than the 660 for cheaper.

They're extremely reliable though.

Samsung SSDs are reliable too, and cheaper.

They are 180gb. So I don't see that as a too bad price

Agreed. 35 under load is reasonable, without overclocking and with good airflow, but 7 degrees is practically frozen.

Core Temp is kind of off I think, do you have any good idea on a hw/temp monitor? Thanks for comments

On these fx chips they read a bit weird below 40c or so. I personally use hwmonitor, you are golden below 60c.

Yeah I agree, probably going to be doing that in the future at some point, just hard to get the extra time.. with kids you know Yeah, I like the case as well but very tough on cable mgmt.. almost thinking about somehow taking the drive cages out all together and mount the ssd some other kind of way. We shall see. Thanks for comments
