How's the power supply ? I'm planning to use the Corsair SF 450W with the Enthoo Shift.

Wraith Spire doesn't have LED right. The higher model has it.

Azio MGK1-RGB

I might replace it with something more silent with brown switches.

That is an option. However, I wanted to get smooth 60fps at 1440p on High-Ultra for most games at least for the next 2 years. So this build made sense. If I go with a 4K monitor, I'm pretty sure the frame drops will be an issue within a year or so. Until I have a high-speed internet connection for 4K media consumption or until 4K videos become mainstream, I'm not planning to increase the resolution.

The PSU is the only regret. Love the monitor, cpu and gpu.

Because I couldn't find any mATX boards with integrated WiFi. The ones with integrated WiFi will be probably the mini ITX boards which will come in June/July.

It was name after the nighshades. It is purple and black flowering plants. Hence the name.

Go for it. I love this monitor.

It is nearly bezel-less and since it is 25", it has a very high ppi. I'm not sure about the color accuracy, but I would say it is fairly decent. I watched a 1440p video on this and it was surreal.

Fun story : When I was looking to buy this monitor it was sold out in NewEgg and all the other retailers were selling at much higher price. So I bought a refurbished monitor. No dead pixels, not even any backlight bleeding!

Thanks. I will replace it with my next paycheck.

I would have gone with a normal M.2 or an SSD, but I got the NVMe M.2 for just 20$ more. So I went for it. Glad I made the choice.

Yeah. I will try to post more pics soon.

I'm planning to get an EVGA PSU if it gets too noisy. Will add it with the future upgrades.

The M.2 is awesome. Coming from an old laptop, this feels super fast. Installed windows in like 2 or 3 mins. I was surprised.

Thanks a lot. I was thinking about a similar build and was concerned about the low clearance between the gpu and the psu shroud. Those temps looks really decent.
