Apologies for the delay.

I play at 1680x1050 (16:10 ratio) it's pretty good. It can run anything you throw at it in mid-high settings. Tomb Raider all max up to 80ish FPS. GtaV a mix of med/high. Bioshock infinite was all maxed and I'm playing Fallout 4 on medium although fallout 4 recommended ultra but the frame dips were too much for me.

Hmm...I've never had a problem with heat...I'll come back to you with specific temps if you wish?

To be honest man... with a Blue-Ray player in there, I'm not sure where all those cables would go.

Hi, sorry for the delay. I have no problem with the pump at all in terms of noise.

It's a tight fit for sure but I don't think you'll have a problem getting it in. I've seen a few builds with this cooler and case combination.

Yeah... the motherboard I chose places the RAM right beside the small fan to the back, blocking the airflow somewhat. There is another build very similar to mine that uses a different board. However, my MB has an auto-OC feature which was handy. Hmm, anything else you'd like to know?

Honestly... I think you will struggle. I'm not saying it's not possible but I think that it will be quite difficult. You can probably see in the photos that I have all the cables 'lumped' where you would probably want to put your Blue-Rau drive.

For a few days I had the case exposed and the GPU was constantly at about 28 degrees. Usually it's at about 50 degrees when playing games. I don't think this case can handle anything more powerful than the 380.

I've bought a noctua cooler 120mm fan to replace the default, it's like a jet engine ... I think I'm going to go back though and make sure I've applied the thermal paste correctly.

Thanks, I've actually had it running with the case cover off and on and you're right there is a definite temp spike with it on. 63 degrees is the hottest I've seen it.

After buying one component per month I wanted to get it booted up ASAP!

Great! Thanks for your response, appreciate the input of those more knowledgeable. I've got the CPU, ram (hyper fury 1600 mhz) and case. The only things I'm unsure about now are the. MB (considering switching to a ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ for the X-boost auto overclock and a r9 285 as I've seen your posts elsewhere that this does not bottle with the r9 280)

Great, thanks guys. I'll take your advice about the SSD. I'll research the MB, hope you're right!

NVM, turns out that there are no mini ITX MB's for FX chips?

This is exactly the build I've started to put together! The only thing I've bought so far is the case because it's important to me that it doesn't take up too much space.

I've started to wonder if it would be worth changing the 860K for an FX-6350 though.

Would there be much of a performance bump? £95 vs £60 (obviously I'd need to change MB as well)
