Awww man. I'm so sorry to hear that. Unfortunately I decided to part this build out. I can just sell things faster that way.

I have an RX 460 2GB that I'm going to slap in it. Should be fun!

Yeah. I listed it on Offer Up and have a few offers already. Thanks for your interest though.

Will do. I also found 16GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600. This might shape up to be a decent little rig if I keep finding quality parts! Lol

I have bumped it to 4.0GHz with the stock Intel cooler. Temps maxed out at 67C after a 30 minute run of HeavyLoad.

Tried. Wouldn't fit in the case without serious modification. T_T

It sure as heck did! haha 1920x1080 was very playable at an average of 73FPS on Medium-Low Settings. Turn the settings all the way to low and it bumps up to 96FPS AVG.

I guess I will save that GPU. I have a Q6600 in the closet somewhere!

Looks like that case has decent air flow so you should be ok. It might run a bit hotter compared to a card that has a triple fan setup but I don't think you'll have a problem with overheating.

I'm not sure if it can. I'm not going to use it for gaming, I don't think. I'll probably keep it around as a spare PC for an HTPC or general use such as email and web browsing.

I thought about it. But I already have two of those lol. Besides, I don't think the CPU will be any good for gaming.

Thanks for the tip but as I mentioned in the build description, the upper PCI-E slot is non functional. I have tried 3 known good cards in that slot and I do not get a display. ;)

What CPU are you running? I managed to fit the H115i Pro RGB but it took a little tweaking. I'f you're set on that cooler, you'll be ok.

I know! T_T Luckily, once the GPU in installed, you can't really see it.

Aaand this was caused by an improperly mounted card. The system was transported while the GPU was still in the slot without the mounting screws installed. Yikes!

Wouldn't have happened if it had one of my GPU braces. ;)

Oh man... I did that too the first time I put one of these together... remain calm, don't panic, and above all else.. DO NOT turn on the blender!!!

Not really. If you adjust it with enough tension to wedge it between your GPU and GPU Shroud/Base of Case the rubber material will not move. I've built dozens of systems using this brace and I have yet to have one slip off. If it does, then it wasn't adjusted properly.

I think I'm going to get the tinted version. I have a clear panels on a few of my builds and things are just too bright specially when you have a ton of RGB components. I'm actually thinking about getting some Plasti Dip smoke spray for my current build.

Great looking build. I used this case before and ended up making a custom PSU shroud out of plexiglass. It makes things looks cleaner as far as cable management goes.

Nice build! I like "legacy" builds like this. I'm working on a QX6800 Extreme build myself. I just gotta hunt down compatible parts! +1

PS - I'm in agreement with everyone about changing your PSU. I've had a few clients over the years that had their entire systems get rekt because of a bad power supply... namely CoolMax.

I've never had a problem with using top fans as intake. I do this for all my builds and have never had thermal issues even when using all kinds of radiators. I just like to have a positive air pressure system.

The RAM I used was just an extra set I had and will do the job fine since I won't be overclocking. I am considering grabbing a couple of 3000MHz Vengeance RGB modules in the future, but for now these will do.

I purchased this CPU and Mobo because they, at the time, were bundled and priced cheaper than the locked model and any 8th gen board available.

I like the Remote Desktop function of the Pro Version of Windows 10 and that's why I used it on this build and on all my rigs.

As far as storage goes it's not an NVMe drive but just a standard M.2 SATA SSD and for some reason my parts list didn't save when I added my mechanical hard drive. Lol. I do have a 3TB Seagate Barracuda in the rig.

Like I said I've never had a problem with thermal issues. The CPU never gets past 60C and the mobo stays a cool 34C at its peak when running games/benchmarks (Aida64, Intel XTU, LoL, Fallout 4).

If somehow at some point my system overheats using this method, I'll swap out the direction of the air flow. But since I haven't had any temperature issues on any of the systems that I've built doing things this way, I think I'm not going to fix anything that isn't broke.

I think I might have to run benchmarks in a climate controlled environment and compare top intake vs exhaust to see if it makes any kind of difference at all.
