My first build. Great fun and took a lot of care with the cable management. Since Sir Jonny Ive completely priced me out of his preferred demographic, i'm giving Windows a go after 10 years with the same MacBook Pro.
PSU: With an estimate of 346w, I'm hoping the 450w corsair should be ok. The next level of 600w just seems overkill
AIO: Very popular with shift builds. The hoses are incredibly stiff and I was at first worried that it may crack the mobo. I did borrow a hair dryer from the GF's paint booth and try to soften them into position but it didn't really acheive much. They feel better once they're attached to the mobo though. Due to the right angle bend of the hoses against the glass, I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter which orientation the pump is mounted. Since I planed to have a 2 fan gpu, the rad and fans can be mounted inside the Shift cage. I believe this should give a better inflow of air due to the lowest fan not being pressed against my desk.
Ram: Wasn't in the Gigabyte mobo supported list but no 16gb sticks were. I can confirm they work (woot woot!)
Cables: Stumped up the outrageous price for the custom Corsair cables. If, unlike me, you can walk past a window without the urge to lick it, you should just peel those stiff stock cables apart into single strands. Am slightly surprised others haven't done that.
AMD mobo: I think the gigabyte mobo gives a tidier cable placement over the preferred ASRock board. The real trick here is using the stand offs and space behind the mobo. I also managed to jam the atx 12v cable behind the two ssd brackets. Also not seen that before
GPU: Only went for AMD card as the monitor I choose had freesync. Brand matched the mobo. This was never going to be a seriously serious gaming rig (and should a mini itx ever be?) so two fan GPU was perfect.
Lastly, the case: Just wow! Might be my first build but I can see the engineering that has gone into this. One of the few products I've ever bought that I've thought should've been more expensive.
Temp test results to be added once my neighbour returns from holiday and turns his wifi back on ;)
