Corsair M65 is a pretty small mouse (IMO) designed specifically for FPS.

Yea, I've been periodically inquiring with support. A few weeks ago they told me early August, but now they're saying it's been pushed back to mid-September.

This case (previously supposed to be available early August) is now pushed back to mid-September.

The cases are really designed for water cooling, so the only air you'll be pulling is from the exterior of the case. The orientations don't really matter.

Technically wrong. The CFM absolutely comes into play. That's the ONLY thing to consider - albeit, the CURRENT CFM for the % of your max RPM, not the maximum CFM. The pressure in the case is the ratio of intake CFM vs exhaust CFM.

Shipping is about $10 to your location. Would you do about $100…?

Download the .iso to a usb drive instead. Boot to the USB.

Finally. Maybe the cards I need to buy for gaming won't be out of stock for months now.

Haven't used that one in particular, but I've used the In Win D-Frame Mini (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/HnTrxr/inwin-case-dframeminiblack). Not a ton of dust, but definitely more than usual, as there's no way to create positive pressure in the case to slow build-up.

It's more of a tech bench than a case. Used for easy access to parts for swapping.

You can just call to activate and tell them your PC broke or something and you built a new one to replace it. They'll transfer the license for you. Just don't make a habit of this. Sometimes they only offer it once as a courtesy.

No need for Avast.

Actually, a lot of anti-virus software tends to be a resource hog.

I literally do nothing. Windows 10 comes with antivirus/antispyware already. Unless you're the type of person who gets all click-happy on websites and emails, then you don't really need anything else.

Those are standoffs, yes. Just make sure each of them lines up with the holes on the motherboard.

I've used the older, but similar, Corsair 600T... Sold it on eBay not long after. The case is just absolutely massive. Excellent quality, but very large.

Yes, but you can't exceed the maximum amp rating for the header. sometimes its 1A sometimes it's something else. Typically: 2 fans per header, IMO.

Hold off for the new 1060, IMO. EVGA is my personal pick.

I use the EK-Thermospehere. It's a universal GPU block. Warning: you'll need to stick self-adhesive passive heatsinks on the VRM though. Memory isn't necessary, but also helpful.

If you only play those games, why would you even want a Steam machine? Just build a basic gaming PC with Windows 10 instead. Only Linux-based games can run on SteamOS...

Every time you take it apart, you should replace the thermal paste. "Dry" or not.

If you get the cooler master, there is no maintenance or refilling, etc. It's considered a closed-loop AIO (as opposed to a fully custom loop).

Nice, clean air-cooled build. Well done.
