Couple things I'd like to say.

Firstly you've got the cooler mounted incorrectly. You should at least flip the fans around so it actually has some intake, but I'd also mount the rad on the inside of the chassis as in its current position I don't think it'd be getting much (if any) air through the rad at all as the H500 has quite a restrictive front panel and the rad is blocking the ventilation.

Secondly, $1500 CAD seems a little steep for this PC. Not sure what the market is like in Canada, but in Aus this PC would only be worth like $1000 AUD (which is like $900 CAD). I only know this cos I'm active in the market and buy/sell all the time. I understand you gotta make a profit and all but it seems a bit much, especially seeing you could build a same or even better performing PC brand new for $1500 CAD.

Just my 2 cents. Other than that nice build (that 980ti is sexy!) and glws.

The case was pretty average. Nothing exciting about it, few QC issues such as the holes in side panel not lining up perfectly with the case. But it's functional and looks decent. You get what you pay for.

Hey, there's almost no clearance at all between the cooler and glass unfortunately. According to the case specs this cooler shouldn't even fit. I suppose I got lucky

I haven't upgraded my own system in a year or so I'd say. I just buy and sell in the used market a fair bit and flip PCs, helps suppress the upgrade urge lol

Cheers dude, I think the led strips are to thank for that, they really help make the whites pop and create that nice contrast.

Nice and clean, love seeing some good second-hand part rigs. Some red sleeved cables would finish this off beautifully!

Sexy, custom black and yellow cables would REALLY bring this build together. Still looks clean as is though, nice build. Hope you enjoy

Sure do. Profit isn't really my goal though, I do it for the fun of it. I just like messing around with computers. I actually sometimes sit on parts for months until I find the right component for the right PC, so it doesn't really cover my time tbh. Most I've made off a PC is about $150, I'd feel guilty if I charged anymore.

If you go into flipping PCs with just the intent of making money, it's not going to work. You gotta enjoy it

Not a fan of AIO sleeving, and was also on a budget. Was a rig I built to sell so stuff like that (especially brand new) isn't really an option if I want to keep the price competitive

Was super cheap off Newegg, with free shipping to Australia. Surprised how well it ran with ryzen seeing it's an 'old' kit.
