Don't know why it would be suspicious. Parts were great for their time & still deliver good performance for $ (even here in Aus where PC parts are way overpriced), however when comparing to more modern parts its hard to deliver 5 stars. I honestly think if my bro whacks a 1060 or rx480 in this he'd have an excellent gaming machine that will perform well for another couple of years.

Temps are good. I have found the temps To be within reasonable thresholds. I agree with your comment regarding the close fitting of the cards. With more space they would be cooler. I did have my 770s on this rig to test them & they were very hot. Highly recommend the case as excellent value & offers good features for the price. Have fun with your next build.

While not the latest tech this pc is strong & will keep my son happy for 2-3 years with only a GPU upgrade...then I'll build another.

I haven't used Linux before. This is probably a good Pc to try it on.

The case is good value for money.
My main problem is with airflow as I'm running the 660's SLI & they get hot (low to mid 70's) in spite of the side mounted fans. Another fan mounted at the front would be nice. The back of the case is a little tight for cable management but not really that big a deal. I would recommend this case if you are on a budget.

I have played fallout 4 on mid-high settings and got consistent 60fps excluding the city areas

The thing that the motherboard issue taught me was to research more carefully when buying components & make consideration for future upgrades. Unfortunately I based the purchase of the original board entirely on price & that was a mistake. I'm planning to include a RX480 or GTX1060 in my new project. This card will most likely replace the GTX660's as the new build is upgraded over time.

My son plays the more graphically intensive games so he would answer that question better than me. He tells me he gets high 200's fps playing SCGO. My fav game is Civ5 & I can now run it with all highest graphic options on. I'll post some benchmarks soon.
