It's not great quality. The OPP is faulty, making the unit a fire hazard. If there's a power surge or a short circuit, this PSU could erupt in flames.

This was a problem in early 2017 but it was fixed. Do you have a source stating it's still a problem?

Ah, @Otterman366 you are right. The manual for this particular motherboard didn't specify which two slots to use but looking closer at some of my pictures (not with the physical PC at this time) it looks like it specifies to use slots 2 & 4 first, as you state.

For a 2 memory configuration why does it matter which pair you choose as long as you choose a pair (A1/B1 or A2/B2)?

Fair criticism. 500 GB vs 250 GB for my in laws would not matter--they don't store anything on this PC at all--they only use it for light office use.

I do admit though that I default the NVME too much for my builds. For general office use an SSD the performance difference would not likely make a difference to normal users. Thanks, next office build I'll be sure to step down to a normal SSD.

Yeah, I really wanted to use a 1070 for this build but really couldn't justify spending the money on it. The 1060 is going to perform pretty well and once the market calms down I could always upgrade it if I need to, but I don't see the need so far.

So far the TUF seems to be pretty nice. I actually like the hefty-ness of the I/O panel area with it reinforced by the molded plastic--that had a pretty nice feel to it.

Personally don't care too much for the aesthetics but really not all that noticeable in the case.
