I built my computer in a Prodigy M as well so I know the pain you suffered making it look that good. You got the case with the window, it looks sweet. +1

Make sure you verify the pin outs are correct as well. I've been looking at moddiy for sleeved cables and they seem to think that the Corsair AX760/860 (uses a 18+10 motherboard cable) and the AX760i/860i (24 pin) both use 24 pin.

Nice write up.

It seems to me that every third build on this site has a CX in it. They have already built the computer so there really isn't much point in recommending another PSU to them. Especially when it's coming from someone who hasn't even posted a build.

The parts help forum would definitely be a better spot to recommend a PSU switch. If people don't post in that forum before buying, making and posting their build they should be left to their fate, which probably will be completely normal.

An hour spent googling PSU reviews really benefits a system but most people's research appears to be "hey it's a Corsair and it's the cheapest" and they click the buy button.

I managed to get $50 off my monitor on Black Friday from them. I played hatdball, threatening to return it and buy at the lower price from bestbuy, despite their policy.

Do not be afraid to play the **** card with any vendor. It works.

I love Memory Express! They pricematch and have excellent customer service, for that they get to enjoy almost all of my computer dollars.

He's got mATX, not mITX. Another card should fit under his first card in the case.

Will you be traveling with this often? Will it always be carry on?

I ask because your CPU cooler can exert a lot of force on your CPU and motherboard and the newer skylake processors are not built as durably as the last generation of CPUs. You can solve this problem by taking the cooler out when traveling or use an all in one liquid cooler.

At this price range you may want to consider looking for cheap all in ones used on Craigslist/Kijiji or similar site. You may be able to get a decently passable system for <$100 and toss in a $100 video card and maybe an SSD and you may have a decent rig on the cheap.

I felt the same way about the case I am building my new computer in, the BitFenix Prodigy M. Unfortunately I couldn't get orange but I got Red for a good deal. A shame the case will be the last component to hit my mailbox.

I am using a 390X, Is it really so loud?

Very nice build, +1.

Nice build, I am making a similar build; same motherboard and a red case.

I am surprised at how well the semi-modular PSU actually looks in this case. I went fully modular so I am worried about how my cables will end up looking.

Looking at the PCIe slots on that motherboard it doesn't look like it would support 2 graphics cards in x8/x8 mode.

Not an experienced builder (I just posted my build thread) but I selected my case and motherboard via online research and watching a few videos.

What size case do you think you want?

Looking at your list any size motherboard will work, you can go mini-ITX up to a full size ATX.

Will you be adding a second video card in the future? That would rule out the mini-ITX mother board.
