So will be using a lot of 1x-16x risers I take it? Seen that case on GPUShack, looked neat for large scale like this one. Some pictures of how these are completed may help those unfamiliar with these types of builds... gunna get a lot of questions why the GPU's aren't attached lol

Worked off the bat but had to update BIOS to "detect" M.2 drive. It uses it as a boot, but doesn't show up in the hardware monitoring until you do. Weird but let ya know. Also, Overclocks like a son of a bleep... lives up to hype.

Front panel is ABS with vinyl covering for the brushed aluminum look. Feet are part of the aluminum of the case with small rubber pads.. Included fan is 3 pin with a molex, but your motherboard should be able to control three pin fans. Overall give it an 8 out of 10. No cable management grommets but the cut outs are in the right spot, not a cheap thin Bendy piece of aluminum, actually quite solid. The parts that they cheap out on are obvious, like non-replaceable PCIE covers and the LED controller is not integrated to any part of the case but does come with adhesive to stick it somewhere out of sight. It's a bargain at $35 because really it has the qualities of a $60 case.

This case came with the one installed fan, fairly decent. Moved that up front in line with GPU and used the extra on hand as exhaust. Temps were very reasonable considering the setup. Does get good air from up front, and magnetic filter on top and PSU filter too. Wouldn't be overly worried. Side panels are a pain in the butt though, they don't come off easily and have nothing to grip. Basically have to get your fingernail in between to get them started. Overall, it's a pretty good case for under $50. Would recommend it

The LED's are proprietary, the connector is up on the top corner by the front panel and is powered by the fan controller SATA powered connection. I think... will double check if you want. To expand its easiest to buy the Phanteks LED kit. Nice build. "Mint"y fresh... is that Rebbeca or a newer rev?

Could up the GPU, but felt that case deserved a lovely theme while being a decent mid range 1080 machine. Also easy upgrade path. Best of luck!

Ryzen has had problems with high frequency RAM out of the gate. Originally, did you set up high speed XMP? Anything above 2400 seems to be a gamble, but it's a firmware requirement at this point. Patience is a virtue in new platform. Of course, it's such a virgin platform right now that all the consumer added features can cause a lot of fun :)

Used the same case multiple times, for managing cables try taking off that HDD bar, mount the drive in the 5.25 bay on the bottom, the ATX 24 should fit behind the motherboard as long as it doesn't go into the slim parts of that back area. Then I just nicely loomed the rest in the top of the 5.25 bay. Like this. Best of luck!

Monitors "Typically" come with required cables(HDMI, DVI, etc.), and the motherboard should come with at least 2 SATA cables, possibly 4. Of course, this is typically conditional and one of the things to check in package contents at checkout

Dual FreeSync Monitors, 21.5" 75Hz, Skylake i5, well reviewed motherboard, 16GB RAM and a 4GB RX 460 for the Freesync monitors. Not the monster of modern gaming cards but plenty for solidworks, CAD and good 1080p gaming. That's where I made the sacrifice on this one

Or, drop a monitor for now, and go this route for more computer now, pick up a monitor later. Jump into Kaby Lake instead, RX 470 for the freesync monitor (much better 1080p max card) and SSD

Evil hit the nail on the head, between cooling, clocks and Optimization software included... aftermarket is usually cheaper, colder and quicker. Emphasis on usually, it's all situational. Now, being downright Dutch of me (no global offense... but yah :P) the 6900K really is all you need, since the 6950X still actually has 20 total threads, meaning gains are negligible after you use the physical cores and basically ignore the threads. Heck, even the 6850K has plenty of horses and all can be overclocked for more oomph at 1/3 of the price. But the computer enthusiast in me screams " BUY THAT X CPU!!!!!"

Thank you for the comparison's BTW, nice to see the actual software you are using :) helps a lot with componentry views.

Agreed on the optimization issues, which in turn also find hilarious due to almost every modern console using AMD. Granted, console optimization is a whole different ball of wax. Though in turn, as far as budget machines go, I have no issues recommending AMD cards. In terms of performance per dollar, that RX 470 is a pretty mean little bugger
