Nice. R5 for the win!

Yeah, the R5 was great. Easy cable management. I removed the middle drive bay so the air flow wasn't restricted. It's nice that it's so modular.

How's that mobo of yours? I'm contemplating on that or the VIII Hero. Sound any good? Can you remove the I/O shield?

I'm pretty happy with how quiet this PC turned out. There's a very slight wind noise from the fans but at 2 feet away it's very difficult to hear. My cheap PC speakers that are plugged in make small hum sound that's way louder than the PC. lol.

I'm building a gaming rig with an R5 case. Was going to go with the Sapphire Nitro R9 390 card (although I'm a bit torn, since I like the MSI GTX 970 too, b/c quiet and cool). Was going to use the NH-D14 cooler as well on an i7-6700K CPU.

I notice you appear to be using only stock fans in their factory configuration. I want to go that route too, but am curious to know if it provides sufficient cooling. What are your temps like?

I have no plans to overclock at all, and my memory will be (2x8GB) DDR4-2133.
