Description

I use this computer when I sometimes come home from college on weekends and on vacations.

Thumbscrews on a $160 case is ridiculous, but it has good airflow, integrated case strips & fan+led hub and with 3x 140mm "RGB" fans. The design is unique with that huge mesh front panel that keeps my components nice and cool - although the GPU being a founders edition card doesn't really benefit from the airflow. The GPU was $420 in July 2017 I couldn't say no, because I've never had an FE card before.

The cable management on the back was a bit tricky, especially since the PSU I'm using is not modular and on top of that; I use cable mod extension cables that need even more space at the back.

I use Coolermaster SATA-powered LED strips to lighten the inside the case. One is beneath the GPU, the other one is at the front of the case facing backwards towards the CPU Cooler

I like this build, looks fresh. My girlfriend says it looks "free"

Hey, this question isn’t really about the build but still wanted to ask anyway, so, how is the monitor? I thought about getting the same one but not sure if I should or not. Have you had any problems at all?

It does the job for gaming. I like the fact that it has tilt/swivel/rotate but I'm gonna tell you: Colors straight up suck, for me at least. I just bought this cheap 144hz just to play during weekends, but I wouldn't recommend it just because the colors are so ugly. I calibrated it the best I could, but it could never beat a better TN panel such as the BenQ XL2730Z or an IPS/VA panel (even bad ones)

Hello. Does LED strip, fan hub and LED hub can be removed? Thank you

The integrated LED strips at the bottom (beside the PSU Shroud) and on top cannot be removed. The Fan Hub and the LED Hub can be removed by unscrewing it. The LED strips you see on the PSU shroud beneath the GPU is a SATA-powered Coolermaster LED strip.

However, this case is big and the cable mgt section is quite spacious. You maybe won't need to removed the hubs, just don't use them and put your third party hub somewhere else.

Even though this isn't my build i can tell you that what he has should be able to run that stuff no problem. However if you are going to play a game like Red Dead Redemption you should get a better monitor because the graphics in that game are awesome.
