No worries, I ended up getting it anyway. Strangely the card won't post with the riser but I'm thinking it might be an issue with my mobo.

Hey man, I know this is a bit of a necropost but I also have an H500P in my build and have been looking at that vertical mount kit recently. How did it go in for you? I know it was created before the H500P so I was just curious if there were any installation issues. +1 by the way, mad build!

Thanks! Temps are listed on the page :) Airflow is really good, I notice an increase in airflow when taking off the panels but as you can see temperatures are great anyway. I think people complain about its airflow because it was marketed as a HAF case and turned out to be about mid-level.

Yeah, I've had no problems whatsoever. Generally it's best not to bother with the QVLs, because they are only current with when the Mobo was released, or are incomplete to start with. Go ahead, it'll work fine.

The air flow is fine, i notice a small increase when i remove it. I have gotten up to a stable 3.8, but I don't think ill do it unless I need it (star citizen, perhaps)

Ooof, and on the same day H310 mobos are spotted in the wild.... Other than that, nice build. Maybe touch up the cable management.

I seriously considered the ML240 RGB, but I'll be saving the aftermarket cooling for my next chip. IMO the wraith spire is sexy as it is :) I even rotated the logo so it wasn't lopsided.

Thanks for the advice. I was never really looking for them to illuminate the parts, more to serve as points of interest that can sync with my other components. Since I'm getting the same RAM, I reckon the fans on their own will be enough, but I will look into strips. Thanks!

Those masterfans look pretty good. Are they bright enough on their own, or do you think they look better with RGB strips?

How's that masterfan pro 120 rgb going for you? Is it vibrant and syncing properly with Asus aura? I'm planning on buying 5 for an upcoming build and want to make sure my $125 AUD is well spent!

I mean, SLI doesn't make a computer amazing. A single 1080 Ti would likely be more powerful. But depending on what he's playing, you're right, that probably isn't his computer.

I believe CIG is focusing on human ships first, like the Hull C, as the stanton system is nowhere near Banu space and it would be pretty irrational to introduce the merchantman if there aren't any Banu or Banu systems. I'm not saying it won't be out until all 100+ systems are there - I'm certain that human traders will own them - but we're probably not going to see at least until jump points are implemented. I agree though, it looks pretty great.

I've actually read a couple articles and benchmarks that show high clockspeed RAM only makes a significant difference with high-end systems. The 1600 benefits by only a tiny amount (1-2 fps difference). It's with systems rocking an 1800X and 1080 Ti that really see a difference (on the magnitude of 10-25 fps difference).

Hey, I'm planning my first build with very similar specs! Great cable management for a first build, I hear that case is good for cable management. What kind of games do you play, and does this get decent fps in them?

Read speed, yes it is faster. But in terms of gaming there's no difference. Of course, copying on the nvme will be substantially faster, but a game's load time would vary in the nanoseconds between the two types.

Hey, nice build. The red theme looks really good in that case. However, I don't see why you would want to pay more for the 960 evo when you can get the 850 evo for basically the same speed. Nvme offers zero performance increase over sata SSDs in gaming. All in all though, this is a really well-rounded build.

Well, getting the 2x8 would have been better for performance. Dual channel only works with two sticks.

Believe me, they save you a fair bit on electricity. Also generally your gold rated PSUs will have a better build quality anyway. I believe Corsair's RM550x and the EVGA equivalents are good for systems like yours.

Can I ask why you bought an 850 Watt PSU? I'd have thought that system would need at most a 550W, and they're cheaper, leaving budget for a gold rated PSU as well.

While the stock cooler is fine, you really want a better one for overclocking. Some people have OC'ed on the stock cooler, but this is a MicroATX build, so there's less airflow. Noctua make great coolers, and as you can see his load temps are only 65 degrees Celsius on 3.9GHz, which is a fair overclock. Hope it helped :)

Noot, noot! Does the Strix Z270G have its dual-channel slots side by side or are you not using dual-channel?

There's something called "headroom". It uses ~360W on idle. When gaming or overclocking, it is gonna hit way higher than that, pal.

Ooh, I do love this case. Not so great for RGB, but for a themed build it could go great with a Gigabyte mobo and graphics card :3 Those orange grommets make me so happy, but it just needs a PSU shroud. Nice build man, could use a little help with cable management but otherwise very well rounded. That radiator is so nice :) +1

Probably a bit late to comment now, but what kind of frames do you get in SC? Is it playable (60+ fps) on Ultra, or not?
