I wanted to build a solid gaming rig that could stand up to the requirements of games for the next couple years, but also wasn't obnoxiously loud or intrusive on the desk. It also had to have decent support for Hackintoshing (hence the strange Gigabyte motherboard choice).
I got an overclockable CPU, motherboard and video card to stretch the performance limits of the machine, but I'm already having cooling issues and will need to address them before boosting anything.
One funny installation note: The video card is literally 1mm shorter than the entire case length. To get fitment to work, before even putting the motherboard in the case, I had to slide the video card in vertically and strap-tie it so it was hovering above where the PCIe slot would be. I then slid the motherboard in underneath and cut the strap ties, lowering the video card into the slot. The plastic of the GPU cooler is pressing up against the front of the case -- it's that tight.
I had to sacrifice one motherboard fastening screw, as access to it was impossible after the video card was installed.
The rest of the installation was a breeze. Cable management is a bit gross, to be tackled when I figure out how to cool the CPU better.
Regarding CPU cooling: I'd love some recommendations. I put too much thermal paste on at first and used vinegar windex on a coffee filter to remove it. It looked mostly removed (from the cooler and CPU) before I reapplied, but maybe I didn't get it all? Either way, this is pretty bad cooling performance even for a stock cooler.
