Cheap Antec cases suck. I have an O.G. Sonata and it's fantastic.

The P180 was the grandad of modern case design and the standard for quietness. RESPECT YOUR ELDERS!

It isn't the worst case in the world. It is freaking huge. Just not taken care of.

What are the chances of two i-5 2320's posted back to back.

You should post what is in the PC now then do an update when you get the other parts. The GPU had me thrown off for a second when I looked at the pictures and the Part List first.

That is sick Ram. What kind is it?

I will update the parts list. I forgot I took it out to put in the hp since my 2 x 4gb crucial were not working trying to get it to work.

I know you're changing it out but that Red GPU PCB on the blue Mobo PCB is something else. I always forget how much things have changed in recent years as far as the visual side goes. Companies are putting a LOT more thought into it thankfully. Especially Motherboard companies and all the odd color schemes they had going on. At least that motherboard is blue on blue and looks good. Some got pretty ugly.

Yeah it is nice to see a nice colored Mobo. It doesn't look good in this case since I have the window but if you mobo is hidden it can be a pretty motherboard for sometime views.

You just want to see the world burn with that upside down cooler +1

Mind changing it around? And not just putting the sticker the right side up cause my ocd will find out

Well you could... You would need to apply new paste though.

I highly recommend getting an aftermarket cooler. I have quite a few stock coolers just sitting around because they are horrible and not worth using.

Even a cheap $15-20 cooler would keep your system FAR cooler than the stock cooler and possibly extend the life of your system.

Another factor is how much better they look... stock coolers are just ugly.

I thought he was talking about the fan on the gpu since it is upside down as well.

Why did you use the stock cooler on the i5. No overclocking?

Great build. I'm glad to see free parts being put to good use. A SSD and good CPU cooler will really help for gaming. Overclock that CPU a little more to see what it can do :D

Instead of getting a 950 i would recommend saving a bit more for either a 4GB GTX 960 or even a GTX 970 if u can stretch it!

I am actually looking at a 960 now. Evga GTX 960 4gb FTW Acx 2.0+

I'm looking to buy and build my first Gaming PC, I was looking at the parts list and was curious as to why you bought 4 Case Fans, when I only seen one on the PC itself.

  • 46 months ago

It actually does have 4 fans in there you just can not see them. They are in the front and top which have tinted covers. I would not recommend this case sadly as a beginners build unless you get it local. There is better cases in this price range I found out after.

No reason to hate. He got a good CPU/Mobo combo to build a good PC around. I'd take that i5 over say a pentium for gaming.

It has a ways to go to become a good PC but I have faith that he will get it there. SSD, CPU Cooler, Ram, and a GPU is all he needs for parts. Do a bit of cable management and boom hes got a good PC for $350(including $100 already spent).

Why. Antec make some very good psus and that cpu is still very good.

  • 51 months ago

Antec PSUs have been made by Seasonic and Delta, which are very reputable OEMs in the PSU game.

EVGA and Corsair do not make their own units, they're sourced from the likes of Seasonic, Super Flower, and Delta alike, meaning the handful of OEMs are making quality PSUs for a bunch of different brands. More popular? Perhaps. Reliable? All the same.
