Description

It's meant for mainly gaming but also for light web browsing and any possible programs in the future.

Went for a black and red theme so I purposefully bought the motherboard, CPU heatsink, RAM for that reason. Only issues I had was with one of my PSU cables, the motherboard 24 pin connector. It had plastic that was heat shrinked and cable tied but the two connectors were upside down! So had to cut them free and rearrange them. I also waited around for Windows 8.1 to boot up as it was stuck on the blue Windows logo for ages. I then turned it off and on and realised I had to change the BIOS boot to SSD from the external DVD which I initially booted Windows from (as this case doesn't have space for an optical drive).

Cable management is so easy with this case! You can get a professional finish without going to a whole lot of effort.

Still waiting on my GPU to arrive so using an older one for the time being.

Very pleased with it though! Looks amazing and can't believe I've gone from being scared to remove my old desktop's side panel in case I broke something to building my own computer from scratch in just a few months. Only took me s few hours to build it as well! :)

How's that SSD? How would you rate it against other SSDs?

How good does that cooler cool your cpu? Heard that it's better than the Hyper 212 Evo for cheaper.

It's very good. I don't think I've seen my CPU go much over 40 degrees tbh

I was trying to but that cable does not want to bend, it's extremely stiff. As were all the cables really! I think it's mainly due to the plastic that's been heat treated. I'll be looking in to it in the future though, thanks for your suggestion. :)
