This is such a great little build! It should have way more upvotes.

Awesome! There is something glorious in waiting a long time to finally build your rig. I was in a similar spot 5 years ago (hadn't owned a desktop in a decade) and it felt amazing to play on it. In fact, I upgraded and my rig is even better, but nothing beats those first gaming marathons on a new rig.

Nice simple build, good job! I own the Corsair HAF 922 myself and it's a solid case.

Nice! I was feeling a bit crappy about spending as much as I did on my components (build to come later) but seeing your parts list, I feel better. Thank you! :D

My first discrete GPU was a Matrox Millennium II. Sporting 4MB of VRAM, it was a total BEAST! :P

Nice rig but there is something I will never understand. Why do people spend so much on their peripherals (keyboard, headset) in mid-range rig. The way I am, I would have put those $250 towards a beefier GPU, CPU, or monitor. I'd think upgrading any of those 3 will give you more benefit than a slightly fancier keyboard or headset.

P.S.: good for you for working and saving to fund your hobbies/passions. I feel you'll enjoy your rig 3x as much as someone who was just given one by their parents.

Wow, I completely missed this, sorry about that. Yeah, it is somewhat viable as long as you update some of the parts as you mentioned. I would definitely look for a slightly stronger CPU as well. Really depends on your total budget.

I looked it up to be sure, I stand corrected. It technically violates their EULA which says you should only install on Apple hardware (debatable definition right threre...). Anyway, they have never pursued any end-user, they've only ever sued people making commercial use of it and selling hackintoshes. Oh, and in a theoretical legal battle, an end-user could even possibly claim "fair use", like for when people jailbreak iphones.

This is my whole issue with this build. If they hadn't named it "on the cheap", I'd actually be fine with it.

It's totally allowed. Mac OSs are sold by Apple themselves. You can't go around calling it a Mac and selling it, but you can build one for personal use.

The only complaints I have are for the guesstimate prices and the name. There are numerous other builds on this site named "the black knight." It gets old.

Hehe, no worries. I think the only thing to do for the 130 would be to replace the front intake fan with something more powerful. If that's even possible.

How much clearance do you have between the window and the GPU? If you can fit a fan, that could actually look cool. OR you could maybe still fit a grill like this to keep a pretty slick look.

I find your build's performance at this price point kind of underwhelming. What is this going to be used for?

Comment reply on Abitdamaged's Completed Build: PC Portable

What case is it? Basically, if you want to keep the temps low, you'll need to find another way to supply air to the GPU fan.

It really depends on your other airflow sources. For example, you can mount a 120mm fan on the bottom of the case, sucking air in towards the GPU and that would compensate for not having side vents.

If you look at my last build, you can see an easy way to get a window mod installed. Or you can check out this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpZoE-zj0-k

High. You can see the temps to the right of the build, under Details. The window mod looks sweet but, as you said, it cuts off circulation from the GPU fan.

Well, he cut off a lot of the air circulation with that window mod. It looks pretty, but there is no air feeding the GPU fan.

Yeah, feel free to message me if you have a hard time with Corsair Link. I have a link explaining how to do it somewhere at home.

They're both pretty nice for the price. The case looks good and has good cable management options. However it is a bit flimsy. It's not like the $100+ steel cases. The H80i took a little tweaking to get it working properly on Win 8.1. Hopefully, Corsair will have fixed the issues by now. There was some registry editing I needed to do to get "Corsair Link" (the H80i software) to work.

Not every game will work on Linux, no. They may work, but it can take a lot of tinkering with drivers and such.

A ~$90 case is not "cheaping out". You can get a Fractal Design or a nice Corsair for that price.
