Description

I mostly use this machine for playing video games(of course) and video editing. So far it has been able to handle everything I throw at it. The only problem I have had so far is that I chose different memory at first but it turned out that the memory was dead. I returned that bad ram and got new ram. Since then I have had no problems.

Nice build, clean mean, and the red is a nice touch. One question though, why did you put the cpu cooler like that? Wouldn't rotating it by 90° have better airflow?

Wow, I didn't realize I could do that, thanks for the feedback.

Nice, gotta clean up those cables.

and like mewcat said, Rotate your cpu cooler so the fan is pointing towards the back and exhausting the air out the back. In its current configuration its pulling the hot air from the graphics cards.

Dude, I actually cleaned my desk right after taking those photos. Right now it is the cleanest and most organized it has ever been and I'm always very organized and clean when it comes to my desk

I have a few questions on the case (I'm considering it for my next build): what's the airflow like? Is there any way of removing those 5.25" bays? Most importantly: are you happy with it?

Wobbledog submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Oh, I love the case, it's the best I could find for the price. You can't find much at that price range that has a power supply shroud, but this one does! Sadly there is no way of removing the 5.25" bays. I am unsure of how the airflow is. Oh, and I should also mention that it comes with a fan controller but I don't use that, and I would recommend replacing the fan that it comes with

Actually upon further inspection, I was able to take out the 5 and a quater bay
