Description

This is my second build as my first wasn't really for showing off but for gaming purpose only. I never had a good gaming rig and I felt like I wanted to build one myself. For this second build I changed my ATX Antec 900 case for the Phanteks Evolv mini-ITX, the motherboard z170i pro AC, the RAM sticks 2x8GB and the cable adaptors to match the black and red theme. I bought the Corsair H60 after I put this rig on the completed build so I took one last picture to show it off.

Note 1: You can see in the back of the case something weird looking before the PSU. It's the fan controller Sentry mesh that I have removed panel support in order to fit it in because I had to power the 2 extra fans on top. Sadly I had to leave all the fans at a 100% power since I can't control them at will unless I would open the back plate everytime I wanted to.

Case

It is really fun to have this case to work with. I would recommend this case if you want cable management, lots of space and options for water cooling, removable socket to better show off your GPU and after all it is still not that expensive. I am not dissapointed even though I wanted to buy the Manta from NZXT. The price wouldn't drop so for basicly the same specs but 50% cheaper I love the Phanteks product.

I really like builds in this case, but the 212 evo kinda kills the aesthetic. +1 though bc it looks nice nonetheless

Yeah I agree with you, I don't overclock much but will upgrade for a water cooler just so I can enjoy the view on the motherboard. I'll fit it in the backside of the case. Just waiting for a good deal :)

Try overclocking with it. I got some amazing results with my 6300

I'm not an expert of OC. When I did for the little I know when playing GTA5 or even BF4 I had spikes and even crashes image and sound until I had to force reset my pc. :(

I did overclock it up to 4Ghz but won't do more cause I can't OC my GPU. I mixed up my memories cause it's in fact because of my GPU that my computer kept crashing in game. I'll try up to 4.2Ghz, but doing so, will it really help the gaming experience? Isn't it more important to OC the GPU instead?
