I would say so, for the ease of transportation. If the college you decide to attend is within driving distance, then it doesn’t really matter what case you build in as you can drive with the computer. However, in my case, I have to fly to school and having such a small case was very convenient.

This looks like a great build, if you plan on streaming in the future I would certainly look into purchasing an additional stick of 8gb ram. Beyond that, the CPU cooler that you choose is great. For case fans, I would look into the beQuiet! ones if noise is a concern.

Sorry, I don't play World of Tanks, though I can give you a benchmark if you'd like.

So I actually just moved back from college, and this case was a bit difficult to bring home. However, my solution was to put it into a carry on suitcase that was large enough to fit it. I took out the GPU prior to moving and put it back into its original box, and stuffed the rest of the case with anti-static bubble wrap, as well as wrapping the outside of the case in the same material. My computer is working fine here at home, though I would be careful with transporting the carry on and ensuring that it doesn't get squished by other baggages in the overhead.

Yes, for the most part I run at 1080p.

I actually built the original PC into a much larger case, but it sadly didn't fit in my room. After switching to this smaller case, I decided to get an AIO cooler that would allow more space in the smaller case. The cryorig cooler was perfectly fine in terms of performance and I would purchase it again in a heartbeat if I was building in a bigger case.

What LED strip did you use in this?

What LED strip are you using with that motherboard? I have the same mobo and can't find an LED strip to use.

I appreciate the compliment! And yes, it fit even better than I thought it would :)

Thank you! Actually the speakers aren't connected to the interface right now! I have them directly connected to the PC, while my headphones are connected to the amp.
