Good call :) it's done.
Of course :)
It was the adapter at fault. Getting another adapter most likely won't present you with the same problem.
Sorry for a late response. The 1050ti was installed perfectly, no hassle, no cables, just simply push it into the right slots. However for the network adapter, the PCI-E slot didn't fit the case (the metal piece that slides into the case was) was smaller than the general PCI-E slot you'd see on a case, so I wouldn't recommend getting this adapter.
Sorry for a late response, I hope you've found the answer by now, but I'll still give it to you.
For him, it was necessary because he had no Ethernet cable for internet, along with Bluetooth featured devices such as his keyboard and mouse.
For others than him, it really depends. If you need wireless internet connectivity, got Bluetooth speakers, mouse, keyboard, or anything else, you can either get the wireless card or just a wireless USB adapter.
I would definitely tell you to go for it, especially since the case has a less friendly cable management system, the lack of PCI-E cables really helps make the build look cleaner. Also, I'd recommend getting the Windowed version of the case if you haven't bought it yet.
My friend was worried about the temperatures so he invested in some extra fans -- however, we tested the rig without extra fans and it ran perfectly fine. The Case and GPU and CPU are all fantastic and ran as they should; but since this is a rather old build, he had recently upgraded to an i5 6500. No overclocking - pure raw performance.
You can mount 2 120's on the front, two on the top, and one on the back. :)
There is :) the whole front panel is filtered.
Didn't even know this graphics card existed... Amazing.
Classic build. I didn't know you could get a white version of this case before!
Those bends are impressive!!
How did you get the PCPartPicker site to show the "other" items with the pictures, prices, and everything?? o_O
Ohh that's convenient. Although, do you find any interference issues? I've tried that with a microphone I've had in the past and connecting it to that compared to the motherboard is quite different sometimes.
I LOVE the black-stealthy theme going on its fabulous!! Also, whichmicrophone is that?
I'm excited for you!
I tested this PC out for myself today and I know you'll be pleased. :)
Quite a path of upgrades you took there.
Very nice build! I believe you added the wrong motherboard to the part list as the pictures show an MSI Z170A Gaming Pro mobo and your list has an Asus model.
Amazing build.. this is breathtaking! May I ask why you bought the NZXT Extension Kit while you only used the 4 that already comes with the kit? I may be mistaken but NZXT's website says it comes with 4 led strips.
This case is wonderful, I definitely couldn't ask for more. It has large, obvious air vents for great airflow, along with front mounted radiator support. Everything is tool-less including adding/removing hard drives, removing the HDD cages itself, front dust filter (push in then it pops out) and the side panels have an amazing design and look. Im sure you already knew that but that's what got me to buy this over other cases
Love the red/black theme, especially the monitor.. +1
Do you plan on overclocking?
This build made me smile.. +1
Thanks! It's a great monitor, so glad I didn't go for a 1080p TN panel.
There is the ASUS VX238H, its one of the top monitors in Pcpartpicker's list. Its 130$ but includes a $20 rebate totaling the price to 110$. Its a 1080p, 1ms, 60hz monitor. Has a nice profile and seems really good for its price.
