Description

this new trend of a tidy complete mATX system is def my new style and im loving it. i began this whole project with the case first and then went black friday shopping online. i have a microcenter close by (25 min away) and picked up the processor for 250$, along with the motherboard for additional 40$ off (came out to $104 mobo). Corsair H100i is the way to go for a very clean build even if your not looking to overclock. mark my words... i WILL be overclocking lol!

The video card is NOT a Asus 970 Strix. I did go with this Asus card first because of its great cooling system but it did not fit in the 240. i dont care what u see online but the asus strix 970 will NOT fit in the air 240, such bummer. All this change when i noticed an aesthetically pleasing reference nvidia 970 blower style at best buy and i didnt hesitate to get it. what a gorgeous card inside this build, really stands out.

Great build. How do you think the air flow is going to be with one 2 fans though?

temps are real cool, and long term wise i think its gonna be more than fine. The ambient temp in my room is pretty cool as it is..

Like the Alag said, BestBuy is the only place that sells reference x70 cards that direct from Nvidia. I put the x because there is the 770 sold there as well.

Why the hell did you spend 180 dollars on that psu? you can't even expand the build much, and 850w are more than twice it needs...
