Description

I built this PC to take the place of an iMac that I was using previously. I use it both as an everyday computer and primarily gaming. I was super lucky to have some friends over to help with the build and hangout while I installed everything. We didn't really run into too many problems. The GPU does extend into the HDD bay area but not enough that it looks bad though it was a pain to install. The only issue we really had was after we flipped the switch on the Motherboard for the close liquid cooler setting we couldn't find where to change it in the BIOS. As a result it kept giving us a CPU fan error in BIOS until we found it. This is a case where you are going to need to have your cable management figured out before you start your build just as a heads up to others.

I'll bite, how did you manage to spend only $148.99 on this?

Try and fix that gpu sag with some supports, other than that though amazing build!

I second that. Perhaps you could use some floss to suspend it via a beam towards the front of the case around the disk bay area?

Or there's this one. I own it and it's fantastic. I painted mine white.

Whoa that GPU sag.

Great build, though. Looks pretty.

Yeah, I know that feeling too. I have the 970 version of that card and it's a beast. Very heavy. In fact, it's so heavy that it tweaks the back of the case just a little, even with a support.

I agree, I did mine in black/white and a touch of red. Looks sexy!

Nice build! One suggestion though, perhaps some cable combs to clean up the cables a bit.

Again, just a suggestion. Great build! :D

Great build. That GPU looks like it's in pain, it's sagging.
