Description

Started this build to substitute my old gaming pc, made it small (but stylish) to be able to put it in my dorm room.

I chose for dual 120mm upper intake and single 140mm exhaust in order to keep the temps decent.

the only things i would've changed in hindsight are 3200Mhz RAM and the Noctua NH-U14S would've also fitted and be a better aircooler than the U12S for just a little money.

Part Reviews

CPU

the only downside is the price

CPU Cooler

keeps the temps decently low and stable with limited airflow

Motherboard

It has everything i need, but more USB ports/4pin fan connectors would be appreciated.

Memory

no lights or nothing, just does what it needs to do... would've gone for the 3200 but forgot to check

Storage

No bloatware this time, works like a charm

Video Card

Love being able to put my stuff on high again!

Case

limited room for cablemanagement and not a lot of space to work in makes this case pretty hard if you don't exactly know what you're going to do and how you want to do it. But with a bit of build planning you can have a stylish yet functional microATX build. Even with it's relatively small form factor it can still fit a whole high end gaming build and still maintain decent airflow so overclocking is still an option. I choose the black edition because it has the mesh front pannel wich doesn't choke the PC.

Power Supply

A no BS PSU, is way better than it deserves to be for the price.

Operating System

Works, but **** at automatically managing all drivers/updates.

Wireless Network Adapter

quick, stable and easy to use. Don't know why people would buy the gaming edition.

Case Fan

moves surprisingly much air and is quiet while doing it.

Monitor

love build quality... hate the price though. UI of the screen is pretty easy in use.

Keyboard

does what it needs to do without to much extra fuzz, making it an good affordable choice for a mechanical keyboard. Cherry MX browns are my new preferred keys.

Mouse

Most comfortable mouse i know without unneeded options. Hate that synaps is required to run in order for your colour of choice to be applied.

Headphones

simply amazing, love the soundstage and comfort it offers.

I have heard that the Focus Gold is a really good power supply. Also, can you upload more pics?

Is your rtx 2070 enough for 1440p gaming? Or would you reccomend something higher like the rtx 2080?

For 60 FPS enough, but not for 144.

depends on the game, tomb raider is 62fps on 2K but DOOM averages at 160fps so... it depends, for me it's enough. If i really feel that i want those 144fps minimum than i just switch to 1080p (although i notice it doesn't look that nice on a 27inch), but i was not willing to pay extra for a 2080(ti).

haha thanks, i've did some builds for my friends when the original Prodigy was still popular and i always love the case, design and airflow wise. My favourite micro/mini ATX case.
