Description

This machine is used for gaming primarily. I do plan on overclocking the CPU since I have the K variant of an intel CPU paired with a z370 motherboard. But for now, it stays at stock speeds since I don't feel the need to push it yet. I spent a lot of time doing cable management but it's still quite a mess if you look closely. Overall, I encountered no problems building this machine. It booted up on first attempt :)

Is motherboard worth it and how does wifi work

Wifi works fine on the Z370-E, I played a small amount of Rainbow Six Siege with wifi on to test it and it worked fine. But, you should always try to hard wire when gaming.

I’ve only had the motherboard for less than a week (upgraded from the EVGA microATX z370 board) but I love everything about it so far. I’ve read great things about it so I think it’s pretty worth it if you can afford it.

+1 - Very nice.

This is the good and bad thing about full glass panels. They showcase your entire build, but you also see EVERYTHING including the led strips. This was the issue I ran into when I had the H500 case. Could never get it right to where the strips were completely hidden.

I'm not sure if the H500 is set up exactly the same as the S340 Elite, but there is a small channel between the glass and PSU shroud that I was able to fit my LED strip into. Take a look.

If you look at my most recent build you'll see it. I was able to run all four in that same channel. The bottom LED bothers me because I would like the light diffused, but I'll deal until I figure something out.

Yep, and I actually got a little salty after I built my pc using the H500. I wish I would've went with the S340 case. Nice build man, looks great!

One more thing would i be fine pairing 8400 i5

Yes you can pair the i5-8400 with the z370-E motherboard but you wont be able to take advantage of the motherboard’s ability to overclock (since the 8400 isn’t overclockable). You can save a lot of money by downgrading the motherboard.

Great Build! The only thing i would change is the cooler to an AIO

Thanks! and why is that? I’ve always wanted to switch out my cooler for an AIO but I see no reason to justify it besides the fact that it makes the build look more aesthetically pleasing. I’ve read that air coolers perform just as good (if not better) than AIO coolers, and also the possibility of AIO’s leaking. Dont forget the price you pay for an AIO as well. So although I really want an AIO, I see more cons than pros coming out of it.
