The more bells and whistles you add, the more of a challenge it is to do a good job with cable mgmt. I built and put apart a few times to get this one just right. My biggest challenge were the fans. First, I aim for a positive air pressure. Second, I've always put an exhaust fan in the rear of the chassis. The fans I got for this are really nice for a very good price, but I'm limited to 6 on their controller. A bit of OCD here and there, long story short, that's the build I was most comfortable with. There might not be a rear exhaust fan, but there are 3 on top and the CPU cooler fan is quite close to the rear of the chassis that it actually does push heat through. Top fans take care of the rest. Video cards have their own exhaust directly out of the case.
Older video cards I got for cheap, but together they run games well. World of Warcraft is more CPU intensive but regardless, running it at full quality does make for a nice gaming experience. I didn't try bigger games like Destiny 2 or Ashes of the Singularity, seems like most kids nowadays are on Overwatch or Fortnite.
Older CPU but even so, the FX-8350 still packs a punch and you'd be crazy to spend on a Ryzen when you can get one this one for $60.
Great cooler, great airflow and actually not that loud. The RGB LEDs are nice, could have a few more animations though. The controller works good, but it's much better if motherboard has RGB pinouts.
Fantastic case... for the $84 CAD I paid, quite satisfied. Water cooling would work great for this case with a 360 rad. Great custom loop opportunities. Tempered glass ups the quality of the overall case. Top I/O ports positioning works great too.
These are my new go-to fans. Not the greatest airflow but when you have 6, I want to keep it on the lower side to minimize noise. The point of these for this build is more for the look then function. Crazy amount of animations, I think it's around 300. The LEDs are beautiful and for the price? Big name guys charge 3 to 4 times more. No thanks.
A new find on Amazon.ca, awesome price. If you just need something much faster then HDD but not the super high speed that some drives offer, you can't beat the cost. I can't stand HDDs for boot drives anymore, it's worth it to add $30 to the cost.
