This thing is a beast and blow my old intel setup away.

I need to get a better GPU support. The dowel rod is a little out of place. I am trying to come up with something to print, but I haven’t found anything yet.

I may look to upgrade the cooling system in the future. It works pretty well but I think there is room for improvement. Gaming it hits low 60’s and under heavy load in video work it will get into the low 70’s.

I am considering getting 2 more fan control and rgb boards. It works fine on my current set up but I can clean up the wiring in the back a lot more if I didn’t have all of it going to a single point.

Favorite Feature

Easily the case. A lot of space in there.

Was getting a hot spot of dead air right over the top of the gpu. Found this as at least a temporary solution. While it is a little loud it’s not to bad and moves a ton of air.

Added a 5in lcd to this and I use it as a hardware monitor that doesn’t need to be physically connected to the computer. I can fit the entire setup inside the case and power it off a usb 2 header or take it out and run it off another power source.
