This looks better than SO many cases out there, way to out-do industrial designers at their own job! I really love the big side vent, and especially the back "squiggle" vent.

UPDATE!

As it turns out, it was the PSU. My friend (who fortunately lives near a Microcenter) bought an EVGA PSU and hooked it up, bingo. No issues whatsoever. Installed Windows 10 and it's running like a dream. Thanks for the help everyone!

Thanks for the response! We did make sure the PSU switch was powered on, though didn't try jumping it. I'll tell him to give that a shot.

Built a PC last year (Beyonce) as a dual boot Mac and PC, but damn if I couldn't get the hackintosh to actually work. Tried so many times. Good on you for trying!

Is there room for a fan right above the intake for the blower? That might be perfect, bet you'd get some nice results.

I think he means the exhaust on the radiator points at your keyboard (which I agree, sounds very pleasant).

This is a solid build! I would say maybe some parts are overkill, but you had a ginormous budget. You'll be able to use this for a loooong time. 16gb of RAM is going to be more than enough for the foreseeable future, unless maybe you start doing heavy video editing / rendering.

Definitley wouldn't call a build with a H110, a 1070, and a $200 case midrange. But none-the-less, great build!

When you say "via a raspberry pi 3 using a steamlink system", are you using a raspberry pi to access Steam streaming or do you just have a Steam link?

Daaaaaaaaamn this is slick. I think MicroATX is underrated, definitely should have gone that route myself. This is gorgeous, can't think of a single part I would swap. Well done.

Dude the M1 is way better than that case. I get it, it's expensive, but I'd rather have an M1 than a 1080 and I am sure OP did too (probably why he bought one).

Literally every build could have a 1080 if you scrape off $150 worth of other parts. That's a lot of money to put down on a GPU, especially when the 1070 is already overkill for most people's set ups.

Yessssssss I named all my HDs after the Magi System as well in my first build. My old rig was "Xanadu", which was a reference to a really obscure part of Serial Experiments Lain.

God DAMN that 1070 looks GOOD! OOOOH YEaAAAAHHH! This build rules, well done. Feels great to go from an old custom built machine to a brand new one. I think the one my new rig replaced was from like 2006.

Whoa! This is almost EXACTLY my build, in fact even though I don't have some of the same models, the manufacturer is the same on almost every single part. Nicely done! I have a 970 in mine and the whole thing just runs like a dream.

I have that exact same PSU though and it's definitely modular, I'm not sure what you mean in the description.

Unless 110 is a theoretical guess of yours for what your CPU temp WOULD be under load, your CPU cooler is not installed properly.

It's just so clean! And the wood is a really nice touch. It would also look excellent as an HTPC in the center of a living room

I've always been a ginormous fan of Cryorig's design, couldn't be more stoked their entering the case market. These both look excellent. My next build is absolutely going to be in one of these, leaning towards the Taku I think. So clean! I hope their cases are as affordable as their coolers compared to the competition.

Actually the more I look at em, the more I like the EVGA's. They're a little weird, a little too industrial, but the side view when it's installed in a case is REALLY clean and nice, and arguably the most important view anyway for most cases.

OOof man they're all pretty ugly on first impression imo. The Asus one is probably my fav even though it's really cluttered. But man, the EVGA looks like it's a huge step backward; they had a great opportunity to simplify their weird angles and spice up their designs with some lights and instead they're just kinda all over. The MSI is nice, the aero and Seahawk for sure are nice and clean (in keeping with Corsair stuff). The "Gaming X" is ok, those little red plastic bits just add to much visual noise for me.

Nice first build! I had a pretty similar first build as well, but I went with an i7-4790k and a liquid cooler. If I was starting over, I definitely would have gotten an i5, Hyper 212, and a cheaper H97 Mobo and used the extra money on a better GPU. Though, I also have the 970 and it runs like a dream. Doom looks amazing, and I've never seen a dip below 60 FPS.

I have almost this exact build, though with another case, and a Haswell chip. This looks great! PSU maybe makes me a little nervous, but it's probably fine. Dig that graphics card, wish mine had that backplate (or any backplate...).

Not to reiterate all the other comments, but your top GPU's left coolant tube looks like it's stretched taught and might even be kinking. Honestly I'm sure those things are rated to be totally solid in any configuration, but cmon man, you just gotta flip it so the tubes are on the bottom of the radiator. You're gonna spend more than some people's entire budget on GPU's and leave it to chance like that?

Really love that case, been seeing it more and more. I wish more cases had a PCI extender like that to get more open airflow right onto the GPU.

I built a PC for the first time last year instead of getting a console and it's served me well. Nice build!
