Description

This was my first full computer build, and first time messing with a desktop in many many years. I'm really happy with how it came out. But probably could of done a lil better on cable management but nothing that really stands out. Built it mainly for gaming and streaming. I use my MacBook Pro for most other computer stuff.

Haha I was waiting for someone to notice it.. it's had a rough life.. former beer pong, tailgate, and racetrack(motocross) table lol

Next time try and out more money towards the motherboard, because if you overclock, some motherboards will actually benefit from the overclock.

Thanks for the tip. I definitely went back and forth on the motherboard many times

What is wrong with the mobo? The Z170-A is an overclockable board with built in support that works fine for plenty of people.

Yep I had my i5-6600k OC to 4.6 no problem but haven't tried with my i7

Well if he got something like the asus Maximus 8 then it would benefit a lot more from the overclock

I've since put it on a piece of plywood instead of the carpet. Not fancy but..

Why does your Luxe have ssd trays on the side?

Chansharp147 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

I couldn't tell ya.. I too was surprised when the case showed up to see the trays in the window.. but they are removable which is what other people must have done

Carpeting is bad for the psu. Suggest you put a board or even the keyboard box under the case to allow your psu to breathe.
