Looking at the pictures and thinking about making a build in such a type space is literally making me anxious. Amazing and creative build. +1

Honestly dont remember but I think the LED on the case switches between red, blue and green or something like that. I have mine on red obviously.

How do you like those monitors. I was thinking about doing a similar setup.

Far from perfect? This build is amazing. The theme is spot on. Without the build title anyone can look at it and immediately think R2-D2!!! The cable management looks amazing. I have done a few budgety builds where I have spray painted pieces and it is definitely not as easy as it sounds. Your paint job look great. Any tips in that area?

Also just want to say that I love that this is a $1000 build. For me I think the best part of building is getting something unique like this. Anyone with money can shove a few 1080Ti's in a case but a build like this shows a lot creativity and passion.

Proof you dont need thousands to make a great looking build. Love this Thermaltake case.

Amazing build and great cable management. Also This is weird but I really like the desk. I have a desk with a computer cabinet in it and I hate that my pretty looking build is in there where I cant see it. Also just built one with my daughter and need to get her a desk for her room. I want that desk!!!!!

Cool build. Like the case a lot and I think the Deepcool AIO looks good. I have one of the red ones, didnt know they started making an RGB one. I dont know what it is, not a big purple fan, but purple LEDs in a build always look good to me.

Cool case, it immediately made me think Star Wars! Good parts list and budget. Clean up those cables though, its killing my OCD!!!

Awesome build. The way you you incorporated the old case into the toolbox makes a mod like this seem much more approachable. Dont think I am quite there yet but hopefully one day. This could totally be a featured build. I am all about the big impression on a small budget.

That is actually the plan. I read that one of the main barriers to learning to code for a kid is improving their typing. So next step is to just get her on the computer and familiar with the basics and typing and such.

Nice build! I did a little budget ITX in that case with a copper theme. They should get together and hang out.

Looks pretty slick with all the black and the green LEDs. The cable management needs some help though. I think the radiator is mounted upside down. Well I dont know if it matters technically but from purely aesthetic standpoint it would look nicer to not have the tubes in front of the pretty video card. Also there must be a better port to run the power cable for the video card through on that case. But really its a slick looking machine with nice parts.

Not sure but you arent the first to mention that. Used a nice camera. Guess it was just the lighting in the room. Thanks for the compliments!

Thats a pretty nice case so I would think there should be an opening in the upper lefthand corner where you can route the CPU power cable so that it doesnt have to cross in front of the mobo. Otherwise you have made a vast improvement already.

That 580 is a good looking card for the money. Nice clean looking build with a lot of performance for what you spent. +1

If your interested mainly in looks on a small budget I would suggest the following (from cheapest to most expensive):

  1. Re-route your cables through your back panel (free)
  2. Get some case fans. ($10 a piece and you can get something with red LED to match the existing)
  3. Replace the stock CPU Cooler with something better looking ($20-$50 for a decent air cooler).
  4. Replace your PSU with a fully-modular PSU and buy some individually sleeved color matched cables (You can probably find a PSU on a good deal for around $80 and $50 for a set of cables from a place like CableMod).

Also I agree with the others, you have to get an SSD. I would probably say do 1-3 above for looks and get an SSD for performance on your current budget.

Really liking the way you tied in the white on the motherboard with and the orange/white LEDs on the RAM insteading of going just black and orange. Not sure if you need all that RAM or were just trying to fill up all 4 slots (which really does look good). Lots of money thrown there though. Its a shame it cost so much, probably would have been nicer to save a few hundred there and get a 1080 instead of the 1070.

Wish I could +1 again for fabricating the cardboard and not just cutting it. Build looks great!

I could probably pull off that cable management if I didnt actually attach the cables to anything on the other side.

Looks like it gets pretty good airflow. You should have skipped the case fans and just pointed a standard table fan at it.

This was one of the first parts I got. It was during Black Friday sales and it was probably just on a sale that made it cheaper then a 650w or 550w. It is definitely overkill for the setup though.

Wanted to get the dedicated wifi card for the performance. Not sure how the on-board performance would compare but I can say I am not disappointed in this wfi adapater at all.

No problems so far. Seemed to have pretty good ratings overall so hopefully I dont have to deal with that. If I do I will be sure to make an update.

Not sure I understand the question completely. This board has tons of slots on it. It has 2 M2 slots and I wish I would have bought an M2 SSD but I just didnt know about them when I started out on this project. I bought a traditional SSD early on and besides saving some cable management I didnt think it was worth the price to change to M2 at that point. The board does have built in wireless which I havent used. I like to do some gaming and unfortunately cannot be hardwired so I wanted to get a really nice wireless card. If you saw my review of the ASUS card I was not disappointed. I caught it on sale at $60 bucks and if you are considering it I would say just keep an eye out for another sale like that. I guess the part I dont understand is using a wireless adapter in the M2 slot. Didnt know you could do that. Ive only seen USB and PCI adapters.

Like night and day. I have the old computer in the basement. Still need to transfer some pictures and such off the HHD. I swear the thing wasnt so slow a few weeks ago when I was using it every day, but firing it up now is a painful experience. Guess its just because I know what fast is now.

Right now I am playing Path of Exile and Mechwarrior Online. Probably not the most graphically intense games out there but I have the settings turned up and its running smooth. I mainly bought this card for the price, $370 seemed pretty good for an OC'ed 1070. The red/black fit my build as well. Too bad I didnt get a case where I could mount the card vertically as the side of it honestly doesnt look too good.

Just took a look at the 400C, its a nice looking case. The case was one of the first pieces I picked up on a black friday sale. Honestly, this was my first build so I wasnt really sure what to look for. Just liked the looks and the price. Some things I found I didnt really like about it were that I couldnt top mount the radiator so I dont think the airflow is really optimal. Also would have been nice to have a hole in the PSU shroud to route the 8 pin cable up to the GPU but thats not really a big deal. Otherwise I like the case and enjoyed building in it. The little extra red lighting it provides is nice.
