So this was my first upgrade since I made my first build 6 years ago. Upgraded from a bulky mid tower running a 3770k and GTX 760, so i thought I should go all out this time and I'm extremely happy with everything so far. I love the compact size and minimalism of mITX, and living in a NYC apartment I wanted to make sure i'm optimizing the space as well as possible.
Building in the case was a little hard, and I had a mishap with ordering a Macho RT first and not being able to fit it, so I went with a H7 that I custom painted (the H5 might have fit too, but it was a little too close for comfort). I had previously build my gf almost the same computer so it was definitely a little easier the second time. The gpu also barely fit and it has about 2mm of space to the bottom of the case, and I had to prop it up with some plastic door bumpers.
Got a nice bundle deal from Microcenter for under $500. Currently running at 5ghz @ 1.275v with good temps under regular use. Still messing with the oc as I hit 90s in some stress tests, so I might lower it in the future if I notice problems, but I'm happy with this setup so far. The MB is amazing and the onboard AI OC feature is great if you don't wanna mess with a manual OC.
Was debating between the 2060 and 2070 as I don't play too many games (mostly Overwatch), but decided to go with a 1440p 144hz screen so I though it would be nice to have the extra headroom. The card overclocked well and the temps are always around 70 under load. It was very hard to fit it in this case though, so I would recommend checking the thickness of whatever card you buy if you get this case.
Love the aesthetics and build quality. Very quiet overall with 4 case fans (especially if you place something on top, it actually dampens the top fan sound). A little hard to build in, make sure to plug the fans and cpu in before installing the cpu cooler since you wont have any clearance afterwards. Great cable management and temps.
First time trying 1440p 144hz IPS and got a great deal at Microcenter for this one. Originally went with a LG 4k IPS but didnt like the color uniformity on it so I switched to this one and it was definitely the right decision. 144fps is amazing, and the monitor is great overall. Just some slight color uniformity problems in one of the corners, but nothing too noticeable.
Overall really happy with everything!
