I purchased a cheap external dvd drive as my Phanteks p300 does not have a 5.25 bay. I think it looks better without anyway. Keep the drive in the closet for the rare occasion when you may need it!

If you are still running this rig with the H240x may I ask how the cooler is doing after all this time? Thanks.

I knew I wanted w/o OD. I can get an external drive for 20-25 bucks and keep the clean lines w/o the need for a door to hide the bays. You would also lose fan space. My old case had bays avail. and I couldn't use the top bay so my build looked off just from a randomly located OD.

I personally suck a cable management, I got a case that offers decent routing for my cables and it has the shroud across the length of the bottom hiding the cables coming from the psu. Sweet parts dude!

I feel lucky that I got this cpu after my 2500k died. This cpu has gotten good review as it is a good overclocker which, as reviews state, can reach the same performance as higher priced AMD cpus. I was on a budget when I got this or I would have gotten a 4690k. But this does the job, just gotta get me a gpu that can get these AAA games running at ultra 1080p.

I have the 6300 but will wait to upgrade. I feel that with an overclock I would can be satisfied for the next year or so with this. I am rocking a 3gb 660 ti but only getting good performance on Fallout 4 with med-high settings. The urge to upgrade my gpu is killing me but buyers remorse stings! Will wait it out to see how low Nvidia/AMD go when summer launches cause price drops. I need that mobo!

I have the gray P400 and I love it. Very clean lines and no space age or extreme graphics or cut outs. Smallest complaint is the lack of tie downs on the right side on the back-end of the case. I can't wait to see more builds using this case. Great job!

Thermaltake SpinQ came out in 2012 I believe. I had that in my rig. It runs nicely though the fans cannot be changed out due to it being a blower style fan. Solid performer for mid-range cooling. It is very hard to effectively clean though!

I chose the Cryorig H5 Ultimate because of its reviews and price. I had issues with installation, about 45 mins to install. I was expecting dramatic improvements over my Thermaltake SpinQ. : ( Less than 6-8 degree difference from an over 4-5 year old design. I will also go with water cooling as it cleans up the inside of the case dramatically.

I like your build! I just had a question concerning the placement of your cpu cooler. I just installed the Cryorig H5 Ult. in mine and was going to have it blowing out of the top and was going to install two 140mm exhaust fans to expedite the process of exhausting heat. I did a quick search and someone brought it to my attention that by doing so I would be sucking warm air from my gpu vs getting air from the front intake fans. It made sense to me and I installed my cooler in the normal manner. Did you just decide to mount it the way you did or was there a reason behind it? I hope you enjoy your computer!

My first PC build went even worse. I couldn't figure out why I wasn't posting.....turns out one of the mobo screws were missing. I gave the whole computer away to my bro who built computers as a hobby. He figured it out right away. Drove me nuts when he told me what was wrong. Lesson learned!

I have heard that directing the airflow out the back can bring the temps down a bit also. But if your temps are within safe operating range press on! I had a cheapo and it fried everything except the front case lights. the money. Please invest any money into the PSU before anything else, it is worth !

This computer is way over the top, nice in wall build though. Why would you waste so much money on overkill. You probably will not be able to utilize all of what you have put into this computer. I like overkill that is utilized or has future proofing in mind, but this as pretty as it is a bit pretentious. Should have done a custom water loop for all of the performance you were shooting for.

The future is 4k right? My monitor is a 2012 model. If I were to upgrade to a 4k monitor and later to a crossfired xfx black or 8gb, which would you go for? XFX because of lifetime warranty!

Don't cheap out on the power supply. You will regret it when you fry your motherboard, cpu, and/or gpu. The power supply I listed seems to be a safer option, but is not the only option out there. I think I read that it was a rebranded Seasonic, which I have and can't be happier. Also, it has a 5 year warranty over a 2 year warranty. I always look for that!

Wow, great computer! I like the lighting. I have the 6300 and was wanting to move up to the 4690k. I'm not a pro but I wonder is it woth the money for the upgrade? I do mainly gaming 1080p max setting.

Also, I thought I was the only one.....My desk looks very similar to yours, as long as the mouse pad and keyboard fit!

I am going to get either this case or the Luxe. VERY NICE BUILD! I am looking into getting an external dvd player as to not disrupt the looks of these beautiful cases. I think it is possible to remove the face of the dvd drive and paint it to match. I wish that they made those hidden bay doors for the optical drive for the Enthoo series cases. +1
