Description

Use this PC to play AAA games mostly, at Full HD resolution and Ultra Settings. The machine runs just fine.

The GPU Card fits perfectly because of the extra space between the case and the front panel.

The gap to put an Air CPU Cooler is good enough, but I'm using an i5-6600 so no need of that.

The only issue with the case is the dust that the front panel accumulate over the time.

I highly recommend this case, also this motherboard, a perfect match for a non high end machine.

The CPU only supports up to 2133 memory bandwidth so no arguments to spent extra money on that.

Both SSD and HDD are excellent value for the money. Even better, if you can get a M.2 ssd you could dismount one of the hard drive carries and gain some free space.

The deepcool fans are the only I could buy here in Argentina without before jumping to 2 or three times in price.

Updated: put the HDD and the SSD on the same tray

Updated 08/20: added a little homemade fan multiplexor to support an extra fan on the top panel. Had to make a hole in the plástic. In this way i reduced about 10 degrees celcius the GPU temperature on load

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Great motherboard, rock solid. Great buy if you want to build a Gaming PC but not at some enthusiast level. Just put an non-k i5 on it, spent your big buck on the GPU card and you are good to go. It would be nice if the back plate were black coloured.

10+ years buying Asus motherboards and never disappointed.

Memory

Smart buy to use with an non-K i5-6600. Not a good looking stick, but get the job done

Video Card

At 1080p You don't need more to run every single game with Ultra Settings, 60+fps guaranteed

Case

Pros: everything, almost perfect. Cons: 92mm fan support in the rear would be nice. It would help to get a quieter and nicer case

Power Supply

Great value for the money. Is the right PSU for the 99.99% of the builds

Case Fan

Nice fans. You can't ask for quiet fans for this price and size

Nice build man! I built something similar for my girlfriend but in the Thermaltake Core V21 (mATX version). They are fantastic cases! Love the tight-fit of all the components, really looks good. The blue lighting really makes your build look great!

Thanks man, I appreciate it. The only improvement that I could suggest to that case is to put 90mm fan holes in the rear. The could possibly fit and it could get a quieter case

Looks very good. Going to use this case and GPU for son's computer I am building for them. i am going for the white case with Ryzen 3 1200 CPU and white motherboard from MSI. So Black and white build. Did you find it easy to work with? Also I am using a semi-modular PSU so I am hoping this will will help thermals also. But great build and nice pictures.

Thanks man. Looking forward to see pictures of your build. Is really Nice to build with this case, i mean, you can remove and switch every single SIDE. The only flaw i ve found is the airflow with a mid-high end GPU. With a ambient temperature of 20C my GPU s was peaking 73C. Adding the fan on the top panel. Helped yo go down about 8-10C.
