Description

A month after putting this PC together I went and rebuilded it and I am really happy with it now. Found out I just needed to start building it from PSU because it was the hardest part to get to if the case is filled with any other hardware. I had a lot of fun rebuilding it at 3am in the morning and cable management was fixed, all the temps went down about 6-7°C. Really happy with the case I have chosen, just needed some patients working in it and worked out perfectly!

P.S. More pictures will be uploaded soon once my new fan comes in.

Part Reviews

CPU

Really happy with the performance so far, with a fan that it came with running at 20°C idle.

Storage

Never had SSD before, loving the speed.

Video Card

Working great for my minimal gaming: League of Legends, WoT, CS:GO.

Case

At first I wasnt really happy with the space I had in it, I was too excited to build my own PC and rushed it a little. About a month later I decided rebuilding it completely and starting off of the hardest part which is PSU and HDD part. You really have to start from here just because if you dont, later on it is really hard to get to those screws if mobo is already installed. When you start off of PSU you hide front panel cables behind it starting to work with your cable management already. Then I actually took out the little metal part in front of PSU just for more room for cable management and it actally worked really well! After rebuilding in this case and working on my cable management, CPU idle temp went dont about 6-7°C! Now it stands at 20°C chillin :)

How is the HDD doing? any temp updates? I have read a review which suggests not using 7200rpm HDD with this case...

So far it has been remaining the same, its probably because of the PSU but the PSU I have is pretty good, it doesnt get that hot and therefore HDD isnt burning.

Thanks for the reply! I was thinking of the same psu too if not 550w. Great build thoigh. I am thinking of a very similar build but with a r9 380 4gb. Just got concerned when hardwarecanucks pointed out that lower rpm be used because the hdd psu proximity might create problems in the future.

You know, he might actually know better than me haha But so far, I havent had any problems and temp have been changing at all. Also, if you are using this case, are you planning on building an optical drive in?

I hope it works well for you! No optical drive for me.

How does it run games like WOT, war thunder, fallout and such?

WOT is running everything on highest settings with no problem and very smooth, not sure about other games, haven't played them myself.
