Description

For gaming and PhD schoolwork. Budget: $1500. Parts were all great for a function-based build. Case is great, feature-filled and simple. First Noctua fans & AiO cooler I've ever bought. Definitely worth it. PSU is actually the SuperNOVA NEX750B (from previous build). 750W is overkill, but there was an amazing sale when bought.

I love how simple and clean the build is. Great job, my friend.

Lovely build, I would recommend some black braided cables because you've got some ketchup and mustard cables up in it.

I would prefer that as well, but the wife was not interested at all in it, when what's there works perfectly fine. If I come across some in the future though, I might just give it a minor upgrade (even if only for my own enjoyment).

+1 Nice Build! The fact that you have a 750 watt PSU is pretty good, saying that your wife would like to upgrade to say, a 2080 or 2080 ti for example (obviously when she thinks that the performance of her 1070 has dropped and 20 series card prices have come down).

What games do you guys play?

She steadily plays League of Legends, Guild Wars 2 and Divinity: Original Sin 2. She also off-and-on plays a huge variety of other games. She took a huge liking to the Tomb Raider series, and bought Rise of the Tomb Raider in celebration of a new PC.

Good part choices :) It's a clean and simple build, but it has all of the right parts.

how do you like the case? that's what my current build is in and I love it minus the screens.

The case is i beautiful, simple, functional, and affordable, with plenty of airflow. I would recommend it to anybody looking at an mATX or mITX build, especially with it being $39.99 when bought. I'm personally in favor of somewhat showpiece(ish) cases, like the H400 and the Meshify C Mini, but my wife is pure function/affordability oriented,

I've ordered this case and want to use the 240 Lite radiator...I'm just having trouble figuring out how to do the rest of the fans after reading everyone's opinions!

The front fans are essentially exhaust fans in that orientation, correct? Where and how many intakes do you have?

Also, I want to put a 1070 TI Duke card, which is about 1.3" longer that your 1070. Will that have enough room with the radiator??

The 2 front fans are in pull config, so both intakes. The rear fan is exhaust, as well as the PSU (fan side up). Leaves the system with slightly positive air pressure to combat dust.

Given I had to insert the GPU diagonally, I don't think 1.3" longer would fit. The Gaming or Armor versions would fit, though.

Not custom overclocking, but the out-of-box Intel Turbo Boost is allowed.
