Temps are actually pretty good, but not ideal. I recently set all of my fans to intake including the radiator, which forced all the air out of the top of the case. Everything seems to be pretty stable, haven't hit above 70C unless I'm pushing it.

Which Monitor? The Widescreen was bought on sale and I have no problems with it. The 16:9 was a gift years ago, I can't find the real monitor in this database so I found the closest one.

Everything actually worked out fairly well in the end. The 24 pin cable took a little bending and stretching to get into place, but it is just long enough if you stretch it into the little cable compartment underneath the motherboard. All the other cables were perfect, no concerns about them at all.

It took a lot of fidgeting and cursing to get it into place. The mounting holes are a pain to match with your drive, and then you have to go in at an awkward angle to actually screw it. If you're asking about the actual drive size and putting it into the case, I don't really know what to say. My drive fit almost perfectly into the size for it, although it does get a little toasty since it's right above the exhaust for the GPU.

Temps are pretty good. I haven't done any heavy overclocking, so I haven't pushed it. Stock temps are pretty good though, 3.2 GHz usually hits around 30 degrees, and 3.8 GHz hits around 50 degrees. 3.8 was rather unstable though, so I can't say that its super good at cooling.

Can't say I notice anything like that sorry.

You have a gorgeous build, like way better in all aspects than mine lol. I wanted to go with the ASRock board, but I couldn't find it anywhere in Canada when I was purchasing my parts. It was a decision between the Biostar X370 and the Gigabyte board, and the Biostar was more expensive. Guess I should've paid the bit extra lol.

It's definitely an issue. I was able to slightly solve it by ziptying the tubes to an opening on the left side of the case right above the two USB ports. It definitely took a little bit of figuring out and doesn't really look the best. I'm sure you can find a better way, I know that Bitwit used the same cooler I have in his build but with a different motherboard, so he somehow managed to shove the tubes in the case no problem. Let me know if you find a better way, good luck!

I haven't looked too in depth into the exact numbers, but I have two fans on the side in taking and one on the bottom pulling air out of the radiator. It seems to be pretty effective, before I had the radiator fan pulling air into the bottom, but that lead to some throttling almost immediately. But since I did move to positive pressure, I haven't had any issues with thermals.

Working on it, need to find a screwdriver to get into the case.

Makes sense.

Any specific reason why you used an ITX mobo in an ATX case? Not trying to bash, you have yourself a pretty nice rig, just wondering what reasons if any.
