Build Description

Wanted to build an all air, mid-high gaming rig. I'm very happy how everything turned out and I'm not sure I'd do anything different. Although I'd like to add an even better cpu/gpu the thermals wouldn't agree with the idea in this already cramped rig. That would have to wait for another completely new build down the road. As of now, I'm hitting idle temps of high 30 to low 40. Temps when gaming are reaching mid-high 70s. CPU/GPU are both undclocked/volted to manage temps. CPU actually performed better with almost no noticeable drops in GPU performance with these tweaks.

Favorite Feature

The compact nature of course.
