This is an update to my previous build. New monitor, case, fans, graphics card and upped the overclock. Primarily used for gaming as well as audio production.
I can't praise this case enough. The extra cold air I'm able to draw in allowed for a minor bump in my overclock compared to the restrictive NZXT S340 I moved from.
When installing the Corsair LL fans I wish I had taken the time to boot the system with fans installed (radiator not in case) before closing it all up. There is a very specific way to install them so that certain effects (ping pong for example) look right. I'm not sure if there is a way to "rotate" the fans 90 or 180 degrees in the software, but there is nothing worse than starting up the build to realize you need to pull the rad and re-position the fans so everything looks right. In the pictures you may notice that the two fans for the rad need to be rotated to properly match the location of the illuminated LEDs on the other fans. I also had one of my front fans offset on the front, but those were a quick fix.
This will eventually be upgraded to MkIII which will feature 3nd gen Ryzen, but that's a few months out at least.
Wish I had spent a bit more for a better MOBO, but for the price I can't complain. Basic OC is easy to do, but I wish there was an option to WOL, at the time I never thought about it but now I'd love the added convenience.
