I built this 7/2018 and it's mainly used for gaming and media consumption... I spend a lot of time in front of it. It is replacing a 2012 iMac. This was my first build ever and my hands were sweating the entire time. Overall though I'm very happy with the build.
The excessive amount of SSDs are a result of me buying multiple during black friday and forgetting/too lazy to return them.
This thing is quiet but it's an absolute unit for such a compact case. I put it on the CPU first (maybe rookie move, idk) and had a lot of issues doing all of the connections near the cpu on the motherboard. I'd like to eventually change it out for an AIO at some point.
These guys have a lot of trouble communicating with corsair icue software. The rgb is always going rogue. They're also a little too tall for the cpu cooler... as in they barely fit right now and if I decide to do another 2x8gb for the other two slots, I don't think I can go with another two sticks of these unfortunately.
It's on the smaller side but I really like the aesthetics of the case, especially with RGB fans in the front. Fantastic airflow
I got faulty ones initially and had to do research to find out they're not supposed to continuously blink. The replacements work much better. Doing the lightning node stuff is a pain in the butt but the fans along with the (magnetic) strips (sold separately) look great
Looks great, would love to go dual monitor or ultra wide at some point
