So i recently joined a Battlefield 4 ESL team, and i needed a smaller PC than the one before (Phanteks P400) since we are going to alot of LAN parties and tournaments. I was really looking around looking for the perfect case, and i've had a Phanteks Evolv mITX case before, but that was just too small...
Then i rembered that Corsair launched a line of Air cases a couple of years ago and thought i could take a look at those! I then saw that the Air 240 was PERFECT for my needs; hidden power supply, lots of room, four PCIe ports and space for perfect cable management.
The case arrivied and the build was going perfect until i was to put my 980Ti Classified in; it was too big... I completely forgot that the Air 240 doesn't support GPUs with PCBs wider than normal. Then it was off to selling the 980Ti and find another GPU instead. I searched around on Facebook, eBay and Amazon after used EVGA 980Ti's SCX cards, but they were all just too expensive...
Then i saw that a website had a Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 on sale, and i was relieved to see that it standard size PCB! So i ordered it straight away, it came, and it fits perfectly!
Then a couple of weeks later i saw that Cablemods are having a "End of Summer Sale" with alot of cheap cables!
So i looked around and eventually found a bundle for EVGA power supplies, sadly i had a CX750M that surely could get a replacement... but luckily the same site with the 1070, had a really good deal on a EVGA Supernova G3 750W at the same time as Cablemods sale was going on! So of course i ordered both the power supply and cables straight away without any hassle!
They then came today, and i was so suprised to get into building one of my prettiest builds till this day... and i must say, it really turned out beautiful!
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the pictures
