I am just about to pull the trigger on my first build and wanted some opinions. I was planning on waiting until the 1080TI, but having a gaming PC over the winter months would be great. I'll either try to sell the 1080 when the TI is realized or buy another 1080 for SLI when the prices start to drop.
One question I had was in regards to the CPU cooler/radiator. I was planning on mounting this to the front of the case as an intake. Will this be okay? I see a lot of others with this case are mounting it on the top, but I don't like how it hangs over the motherboard. :/ My plan is to have two intake fans in the front (connected to radiator) and then two fans exhausting out the top and one out the back.
Any critiques would be welcome! Thanks in advance, this community has been a great resource.
