Microwave refers to the size not the heat. Its actually keeps the lowest idle and load temps out of any PC I have made. While I love the case and the options it is a little big. I also wanted something that would put the motherboard on its side with water cooling only hanging over the board. I am neurotic and at all times fear my water cooling will leak so I would rather it kill the board than the GPU.

Its amazingly quiet, great airflow, and great benchmarks. All I need now is a nicer monitor with g-sync and I will be all done.

Part Reviews


Great Case with a ton of customization options. It will fit pretty much everything you want to put in it, along with more fans than you know what to do with. Its allows for tower and sideways builds. It does feel a little cheap and is a little on the larger side but my favorite case that I have owned.

Lol Im also in constant fear of springing a leak. How did you get the 980 for that price?

Microcenter had a 980 on their website listed at it but it was not available. I walked over to best buy and had them price match it.

Yeah I know its a slim chance but I am always afraid of it. Like if it sprung a leak I wouldn't be able to replace it for a couple of months.

On best buys website it says they dont sell that card.....

Oh, put the wrong one down. My bad, Its the NVIDIA - GeForce GTX 980 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card - Silver/Black. Funny part though is that microcenter didn't even post that one, they posted this one : http://i.imgur.com/J60inL7.png All I did was show the girl my phone.

Thanks for pointing that out, I wouldn't have noticed.

Ohhh soo its just a nvidia one not a evga or asus?

blitztwist submitter 1 Build 2 points 44 months ago

Nope, the girl just looked at my phone and checked one off on the screen. If you don't know the difference they look the same in a picture. I wasn't going to argue with her. Still a big upgrade from my 680.

Everything, each one actually contains everything already, you are just removing things until you are happy with whats left.
