SillyCharmander's Completed Build: Poison Ivy

No issues at all! If you're getting fans make sure they are the Corsair LL series. They have like double the leds and the fan color doesn't look washed out like the corsair sp fans that came with my case.

One thing to mention, and it may be like this with all systems or I may be doing it wrong, I have my corsair link launch at startup because if I don't the fans stay in display mode. So they are all rainbow effect if I don't have the corsair link program on at startup. Again I may be doing it wrong, but that's my experience

There are some extra holes in the front of the PC I was able to run the included long screws through and make it work!

The top clearance was an issue with my Motherboard and RAM. I only had the front mount option. The fans aren't as big as the included 140's but it keeps the CPU cool still while overclocked to 5ghz. The rad didn't line up with the fan screw holes but the case had cutouts for the rad so I was actually able to screw it into the case instead of the fans. Which may be normal, I've never done it prior.

I built it myself. It was an old junk desk I found on Craigslist and I put the stainless top on it and new hardware and refinished it in black.

I'm also into the performance, also since the keyboard matches my system it is the best looking choice for my setup imo. But I agree that one is hella sexy.

Absolutely! I've got my on a WD 5tb but I wanted my os on an ssd so I got that for now and I'll upgrade the storage sometime soon.

Thank you! I'm a neat freak. I spend too much time polishing my desk. Haha

I've never had the k70, but I watched some reviews and the reviewer mentioned if you have the K70 the upgrade as far as performance doesn't make financial sense. Personally I think its beautiful and if you have the cash to spend for the aesthetics alone it is an awesome keyboard!

Thank you! Its one of my favorite colors and its soft on the eyes. So its not distracting while using the PC.

54 x 34. I refinished the desk myself and the top is a custom stainless steel worktop. It was purposed for a garage but I loved the look so I ordered it.

I have no prior gaming mouse experience to refer to, but I love it. It has a good weight and the ability to switch between DPI on the fly is amazing. It feels like a very well made mouse and that's my favorite part. I was worried about hitting the side "sniper" button by mistake, but I never do. I recommend it for sure.

Thank you! I'm working on ordering custom cables. I'm deciding on colors right now.
