Description

I spent alot of time waiting for the parts to go on sale which is how i got alot of these for a good price. Most of it came from newegg and a few parts from NCIX. I will be using this for high end gaming which means that a GPU is yet to come, probably will wait for maxwell or just a GTX 770.

The trouble i ran into was with the h100i. It fit perfectly in the case which was no trouble at all, the problem was the screw holes in the radiator of all things. Be careful not to over tighten the holes or else the holes strip out very easily. I fixed this by buying one size bigger screw after re threading the hole with a screw cutter. Another problem currently is just some air bubbles trapped inside, makes this ticking noise. I hear this is a common problem that goes away. If it dosent then the next step is just to tilt it so the air comes out, no big deal.

Over all this has been a very easy build, even as my first. I highly recommend this case to anyone wanting to do a itx build. Everything is sturdy metal and the cable management anchors are very well placed. Corsair thought of everything in this case.

may i ask why you used a 760 watt PSU for an intel chip with a 770? I know the wattage goes down with use, but isnt 760 watts a little much?

yes it is a little much, but i got it for two reasons. Because it was 109.99 ( original 169.99), and the fact of how high quality it is. a PSU will stick with me no matter what build i do in the future.

I don't know much about over clocking. I was able to get to 4.4ghz and keep a steady low of 43c. There is alot of over clock benchmarks with this motherboard that I'm sure you can find. As for the fans I can control hose through the UFEI with ease.
