After my Lenovo Y510P died a milky death from my 20 month old, I decided no more laptops since my daughters would probably destroy it. My first thought was to build something under $1,000 but after browsing to see what's new out there, that budget didn't seem to cut it and I decided to build a Hex Core work machine with a "eh" GPU. Once I had everything planned and priced around $1200, I bit the bullet and made my order. Soon after ordering the parts did I find out about some compatibility issues with some of the parts and had to cancel my order (thank goodness). Hung out with family and friends that evening and talked about my plans and after a couple hours of peer pressure, I was persuaded to change directions and built this little monster.
Since I knew this build would blow my budget out of the ballpark, I had to carefully hunt for deals for each component. To save some money, I had originally intended to reuse my old Antec PSU and grab a couple old SSDs and a regular HDD, but after I ordered most of my parts I had the itch and I couldn't stop scratching! With the SeaSonic PSU going on sale, it felt like it was just meant to be.
Finally, everything came in by the end of the week and I was able to build it Saturday morning. This was a very intimidating build for me. I haven't put a computer together for nearly a decade and I've never had a water cooled system so I didn't know what to expect. I had first told my wife it would take me 2 hour since she had to watch the girls, but 2 hours turned into 8 very quickly. Luckily for me, I have a very understand wife (sort of). There was a couple times where I had to disassemble and reassemble but a majority of my time went into wire management. My end results surpassed my expectations and I am loving my new build.
Now I just need to figure out what the hell to do with it haha!
Solid, cool, and stable!
Perfect fit for my 380T build. Well sorta perfect? Tubing could be shorter but it still worked! Excellent quality over all!
Doesn't get much more prettier then this in Mini ITX form. Works perfectly out of the box with excellent instructions!
Excellent! No problems, no errors! Does exactly what I needed it to do.
Had this old things for years and never let me down. Excellent stuff!
Cheap and works great!
Found this old thing hanging around. Just cleaned it up and reformatted it and BAM, still works great!
Best bang for the buck. Always trusted EVGA GPUs and will continue to in the future. Works wonderfully for my needs!
Beautiful fun looking case with just about everything you would want or need from a Mini ITX build. Corsair really makes some quality products. I wouldn't hesitate to buy any of their products in the future!
Can't say a bad thing about it. Was worried about the ribbon cables but in the end, it's exactly what I needed to make everything nice and tidy. The thing is freaking beautiful, if I were a Modular cable, I would make love to this PSU everyday!
Still dang wonky. Needs all the bugs fixed!
Too dang THICK!
