Description

Used for BF4 & Pen testing. Runs well so far, and have yet to OC at all.

Pros: 4770k

Literally boots in the blink of an eye.

H110 keeps stuff cool

Small (fits on my shallow desk)

Runs BF4 & Tomb Raider on ultra @ 60fps without any sort of OC

Cons: Small (pita to fit parts in it)

H110 was a pain to install (only fits mounted to the top of the case w/ two fans in push config)

H110 didn't come with all the necessary screws luckily I had some extras

Actually needed to install some drivers in Win 8.1

GTX680's blower style fan can be really loud

Notes: Originally wanted to fit the H110 at the front in a push/pull config but wasn't room for that so no big deal. Glad I decided on the 350D because I had a hard enough time getting stuff inside and would hate to try an even smaller case. Be careful of the chipset/lan drivers for the Gene VI, they install some asus comm service that runs @ startup and creates small system hangs.

Almost said "Holy crap you got this all for $100..." Good thing I actually checked. Anyways, that build looks beautiful especially with the 350D and the black and red theme. Anyways, what's with that other case below your new one?

Haha I wish it was that cheap, no this rig ended up being around $1400 but I reused a couple parts from my old rig (the lower case you asked about).

Old rig: fx8350 @ 4.7-4.8ghz w/ 16gb crucial ballistix the gtx680 and crucial ssd on a Crosshair V Forumla-Z. I added a pic also :)

I assume they are the NZXT CB-LED20 whatevers...

Awesome build!

I'm gonna pick up a set of those NZXT LEDs for my 350D. Does the 2 meter kit work well for the 350D or should I just get the 1 meter kit?
