Description

Built the PC a couple of months ago in Feb 2016 and has been working great.

I moved the stock 120mm fan from the front of the case to the rear for exhaust and put the two 140mm in the front as intakes. I also removed the HDD tray for better airflow and just hid the single SSD in the empty 5 1/4 inch trays.

Had an issue with the R9 390 at first, was only getting a black screen after installing the drivers for it. Thought the 550W PSU was the problem, as I'd heard that it would be under powered. Turned out to be a DOA card and after getting it replaced i haven't had any problems since, even after heavy gaming sessions so I'm glad the PSU is holding up.

Overall I"m very happy with how it has turned out. Its the first time I've been able to play the latest AAA games at Ultra settings 60fps.

Only regret I have is not future proofing enough.

Rip that intel stick off and it'll be a better looking view B-)

I would say just replace the cooler. Just about anything is better then stock. :P

I'm very impressed that you have good cable management in that case, I've worked with it at my school before, it was a nightmare.......

It wasn't easy. Its pretty tightly packed. I uploaded a photo of it to show you what I've done.

Cable ties are our savior.

To be honest, this has got to be one of the best builds I've seen that looks smexy with a stock cooler! +1

Very clean and organized. Cables are neatly tucked away and looking great. Nice build!

Looks great. Only thing I can say is maybe try training those gpu cables to be flat along the side, but the build looks great, and I'm loving the front view.

I have the spec-03 case, which I guess supposed to be the beefiest version of this case line, I LOVE the build quality of these cases. Really sturdy, really well built. Only complaint? Cable management options are almost non-existent.

Awesome build man! Loving how everything works together, cable management in a case at this price can definitely be a beast, and you made it look great! 24 pin extension coming soon? :)

Dude this is a great build! As a matter of fact, the exact CPU and GPU I am looking to upgrade to! Would you mind listing some benchmarks so we can see the relative performance of your parts combo? Much appreciated! +1
