Thank you Sully617. I agree. I will definitely continue exploring different options to make my cable management cleaner.

At first I purchased the G2-1300 but then I changed it for the P2-1000 because of the ECO Mode feature that makes it very quiet. I think the PSU is one of the most long-lasting components, specially with EVGA's great warranty. And also, I got it for the same price of a 850W one, so why not? :)

I think is awesome, it feels very comfortable, has a nice weight, it's wireless/wired and ambidextrous (my spouse is a leftie). I had gotten the G502 first, but I was pressing the side buttons by accident all the time.

Thank you Kinpin! Oops, I'm going to add that to the parts list right away! Got it from Amazon . I chose that one because it didn't have any logo on it and had good reviews. Premium quality! I love it!

480mm radiators are supposed to fit, and the manual says I needed to take out the mid plate bracket which I did, the thing is that I was only able to use two screws on the right side of the case, the rest of the screw holes didn't match the ones on the rad. I guess you can drill proper screw holes on the case rack, but I didn't want to deal with that. I just exchanged it for the H100i which was a perfect fit. This only applies if you want to mount the rad on the front. If you want to mount it on the radiator grill up top, I don 't think you'd have any problem.

Thank you, man! I appreciate your feedback. I tried overclocking it to 4.8GHz at 1.40v. Temps a little bit under 80c, but it wouldn't pass one of the stress tests. I'm really not sure I want to increase voltage any further.

Thank you! I used 2 of the 2m LED strips, they fitted perfectly around the case on both sides and had about 8 inches left of strip placed right above the middle exhaust fan on top you can see it in this pic crossing from one side to the other. Mounting the LED strip was very tricky, especially around the corners. Even though they have magnets, I had to use some pieces of heavy duty velcro, double sided 3M mounting tape and velcro ties.

Thanks, man. The 240GB SDD is for the OS. I was actually looking for one more SSD, but the 960GB Sandisk were on sale @ Amazon for such a good price that I decided to get 2. One of them for games, and the other one for current projects I'm working on (video and audio editing, web design, etc.) The 5TB HDD is mainly for archiving media and old files and finished projects.

Thank you. I appreciate your feedback! You got that right. I just wanted some red accents here and there, that's why not all the cables are red. I specially like how the GPU's power cable turned out.

Thanks for your feedback. My Strix is actually feeling very lonely, I might get her some company in the near future ;)
