Description

I made good use of the black friday deals. From using staples to pricematch microcenter to hawking hourly deals on newegg. I feel that I got a really good deal on this computer.

I am coming from a laptop and being able to stream and play games at the same time is amazing.

Only complaint is that I should've spent the extra money to get a modular psu. Very hard to make everything inside of the computer look nice when there are unnecessary huge cords everywhere.

The case says that it has ssd mounts "2 ssd 2.5 slots behind the motherboard"

I probably looked around for a solid 45 minutes while watching videos about the case. It was no where to find.

This article briefly describes how to install the SSDs on the backside of the case behind the MoBo. (It's on the 7th part of the article)

The screw holes for the lower drive are only accessible before the power supply is installed, and the ones for the upper drive sit below the motherboard. Consequently, install your SSDs first. If you're only dropping one drive back there, the lower position is better thermally, since it's farther away from the back of the CPU interface. We used the top one for our temperature benchmarks as a worst-case scenario, though.

This image ( http://media.bestofmicro.com/arc-midi-r2-case-review,Y-G-384856-22.jpg) is their example of the SSD mounted and here ( http://media.bestofmicro.com/arc-midi-r2-case-review,Y-Q-384866-22.jpg) is the before shot of just the bare case.

Great budget build, btw! +1
