For the work build, would an i5-8600K be a good choice? It's a hundred dollars cheaper and is only a bit slower with a bit less L3 cache.

Since you do professional CAD work, would you need some mass storage in RAID 1 or something like that? Also, I think the memory will be fine. The motherboard seems to support that clock speed. I don't know if you want to block any memory slots with the cpu cooler though. What if you want to upgrade later? I'm all about that Noctua life.

M.2 is not the same as SATA III. M.2 can give you up to 32 Gb/s over PCIe and SATA III will give you up to 6 Gb/s via the standard connection.

Not bad. I bet you could mount a 3.5 inch drive in one of the floppy drive slots, if you wanted. I know I'd eat up a 480 Gb ssd pretty quick.

Hey, I just wondered if you had some back up options. If you're beating up that WD drive for a while, you might want to consider running two on RAID 1 or just have some external device.

Clean build. I've been considering this case for a theme build in the future. You gave me a few good images of what kind of tolerances I'd be dealing with for fans and radiators.

You know, I'm just not sure if you have enough memory installed. Not nearly enough. Nope.

Nice little build. I wouldn't worry about the cables too much as long as you have adequate air flow.

Hmm. Open Hardware Monitor is reasonably well developed, but it gets a bit funky with Windows 7, sometimes, and I haven't tried it with Windows 10. MSi Afterburner might be a good choice since it has more support. You'll probably need a sensor to get an ambient case temp though.

That's a nice toaster. Any idea what the case temps are when running at full steam?

There's one exhaust fan in the back. It does a fair job of cooling with that Pentium, but I'd go liquid if it were any more powerful.

You're a gamer when your motherboard and CPU don't cost cost as much, together, as your GPU.

Thanks and I think so. I might try to drop a PowerColor 270x I have in there at some point. It'll be a tight squeeze.

I think I spy an IDE port on there. You know you want to rock a ribbon cable just for the flare of it. Also, I have that GPU as well and I've been able to play Fallout 4 on it with medium/ high settings just fine.
