Thanks! Yea it's a nice little case, I do notice the i5 with the shadow rock will creep up to mid 70's during long gaming sessions but the 2400g will work perfectly. Best of luck!

Nice build! I feel like if you take off the rear fan and put the filter between the fan and the case might better protect yea from dust!

Isn't the I3-8350K essentially equal to the I5 7600k? I'm sure its likely not significantly holding the 1070 Ti back.

Nice build! I also have the 301 with a 1600 on a black mortar (also lost the lotto with 3.7 @ 1.3V), as far as cable management goes this case is a mess, I've definitely considering investing in some custom cables...

Thanks! Yea cable management was a nightmare with a non-mondular psi, not terrible though, the front intake fan is pretty much as clear as possible unless I get an SFX psu. Yea I would love to get an AIO but id need to drill a hole in the case, which may happen in the future!

Nice re-build, I just did the exact same thing with this case (coming from the Phanteks Evolv mATX) and it is nice to gain a bit of space on my desk! Nice job with the no modular psu btw, I had enough of a headache in this case with a fully modular psu.

Thanks for the advice I'll definitely play around with it and see how it goes, might end up modding the front of the case to let more air in.

Thanks for getting back to me, I just bought the case anyways lol. I have 3 extra fans already but I want to get 2 more to have intakes from the bottom and the front with 1 exhaust in the rear but I need a hub for all these fans now!

That's what I did but I might just end up putting a small piece of electrical tape over it as it's so bloody bright...

Just got a splitter for my two LED strips and plugged it in a few weeks ago. I only have a few color options now, not the greatest...

Hey Kg,

Sorry for replying so late, I actually typed up a response but then must not have saved it after :/. I didn't have to update the bios initially to post, I was able to post on the original bios and then flashed a more recent version before loading the OS. What boards have you tried? Maybe check r/AMD if your haven't already figured it out? Best of Luck!

There is actually 4 screws connecting the fan to the heatsink, though removing the screws is a pain as they are slightly recessed in the plastic.

Thanks, I would definitely like to make some custom cables in the future. I want to update the gpu first though, I'd also like to get rid of the red accents and convert to a straight black/grey theme... Maybe some day when I have the time and money!

Just curious, does it look possible to unscrew the fan on the stock cooler and rotate it so the AMD logo is sitting on top?

I agree with s.a.wood, the acrylic side panel looks fantastic! I have also been thinking about doing something similar with my Evolv, I would love to get it done with tempered glass but that definitely would cost a fortune. I might have to investigate acrylic further now! Great job!

Good, I am happy! I had a few issues with the R9 380 getting the black screen shut off, but I think I got it sorted. I actually just put a slight OC on the 380 for fun and it does quite a bit better on firestrike. In retrospect I could have saved money in places but man this thing is nice to look at on my desk!

Hey I actually just checked all my boxes and I still couldn't find the sticker so it may not come with one... You could always tell your buddy to email MSI though and see if they will send yea some?

Not sure never played the game, preforms well on Skyrim and Tera but that's all I have had a chance to use it for! It survived firestrike though!

Ahh okay good to know!

No I don't think it's grey'ed out? I honestly havnt fiddled around with it too much other than adjusting the gpu fan curve and capping the card 60fps. I feel like it shouldn't matter if it's msi or not though :P

Hey SuperLuigi, Yes post pictures I want to check it out! Yea the degug LED does the exact same thing in mine so I am thinking its normal, maybe It's just to show you that the LED still works lol

Hey Aljawhara, 1) I believe the motherboard only supports up to 2133 mhz unfortunately 2) The fan connector is not included in every case, I believe phanteks includes one in each of there cases but I don't think the case you mention in your parts list has one. You can always buy a splitter or a hub like the one included below if need be.

Your parts list looks good, if you have room left in your budget I would recommend investing it in your power supply, and SSD then maybe the GPU depending on what you will be using it for. Best of luck with your build!

Thanks Luigi! The board comes with 2 SATA cables, and the one has a 90 degree angle on one side of it. I'll make sure to check out your build once its finished, best of luck!

Thanks Hitman,

Yes I am using the stock cooler currently but I would like to get a Cryorig H7 in the future (if they ever sold in Canada!). The mobo/video card combo looks great, the 380 has more than enough power for me. The board doesn't have many features but I don't plan on overclocking or running two cards so I should be fine. The air flow is pretty good for a mATX case I would say, I have a 200mm intake fan in the front and a 140mm fan in the back, and there are no drive cages obstructing airflow.

Jessey
