Why not just go with the Asus ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi) that already comes with 802.11AX Wifi + Bluetooth 5 instead of having to buy an extra expansion card? The Strix X570-F has lower quality parts too than the Hero board.
How come you got one of the 140mm case fans as the "Noctua NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap" instead of just getting 3 of the same 140mm case fans?
also the CPU cooler is it the Noctua NH-D15S or the Noctua NH-D15 chromax.black because in the pictures your CPU Cooler looks black in the middle.
What kind of case temps are you getting in this case?
Wow and I thought that they werent making any more cases with space for 5.25 drives these days as companies are trying to phase them out. Pretty cool case though, it even has a card reader which is pretty neat.
Nice, it looks like some kind of mech lol like from Titanfall. Its too bad in my place this case would fill up with dust in like 2 weeks lol. Its also pretty expensive at almost $400 for a PC case, better to use that money on more important components.
Have you thought about maybe switching the CPU Cooler for a Noctua NH-U12S ? it only has one fan instead of two on it so it might not rub up against the 140mm intake fan (im not sure if the Noctua NH-U12S fan faces the intake fan side or the ram stick side) but since the fans on the CPU cooler are 120mm it makes more sense to keep the 140mm intake fan because it pulls more air into the case.
The Noctua NH-U12S is only $61 on Newegg.
Awesome build, im thinking of building something like this myself but with a smaller power supply (Corsair SF750 CP-9020186-NA), a Ryzen 9 3900X, and some other minor differences.
What I like about this case is that it lets you have alot of Noctua fans inside the case while keeping a small form factor, most of the other SFF cases end up using water cooling for the CPU but I dont like messing with water cooling (Water + expensive electronics = bad combo).

I was going to go with an RTX 2070 Super but those costs $500+ and when you turn Ray Tracing on you take a huge performance hit so I figured that for this generation at least Ray Tracing is just a gimmick to make people pay more money for Nvidia Cards. I figured that the RX 5700 XT costs $400 which is $100 less than the RTX 2070 Super and performs only 5-10 fps lower in most benchmarks but since im going to be gaming on my TV that can only do 1080p @60hz while connected to my A/V Receiver its not worth the extra $100.
Its awesome that your build does 77.0° C CPU Temp under load and 73.0° C GPU Temp under load, I live in Florida and it gets really hot here so I need a case that has tons of airflow.
Awesome looking case but DAT 95.0° C CPU Temp under load is scary.
Anything above 3200 is OC
Bluetooth 5.0 is also missing if thats an option to add it to the description
Awesome looking build, I thought that a video card might not fit in this case but it looks like it does after seeing your build :-)
Does the video card run hot inside the case since its kind of sitting there separated from the top fans?
Thanks for the heads up, I was actually debating getting the Cooler Master HAF XB EVO for my brother because it didnt look like the FD Core 500 was big enough to have a video card in it but after looking at your build I do see that it is possible to have a video card inside of it :-) thank you for letting me know, this does indeed give me more ideas for his computer build.
Right now im waiting to see when Asus releases their Mini-ITX and Mini-DTX motherboards for X570 because the only ones in the market right now are the Gigabyte and AsRock Mini-ITX X570 boards. Thanks for the heads up and for posting your build :-)
Thanks for posting pics of this build, my brother wants me to build him a Mini-ITX PC with an optical drive (a blu-ray burner) but cases these days rarely come with ports for 5.25 inch optical drives these days, especially in Mini-ITX form factor. The pictures you posted show that its possible and gave me some ideas for the computer to build for my brother :-)
Oh I was going over the manufacturer's product page under specifications and if its possible to leave a compatibility note for the product, it says this under specifications: Mini DTX motherboard compatibility; NOTE: motherboards with SATA ports that are angled 90 degrees may conflict with installation in the case. So best to get a motherboard that doesnt have sata ports angled 90 degrees.
Your welcome, thanks for adding it :-)
Wow! im surprised that such a tall cpu cooler fit inside the case
Nice, I was looking for a small ITX build that wouldnt be too expensive and wouldnt take up too much space to create a low power consumption torrent seed box that I could leave on 24/7 to seed torrents without using too much electricity or space. $400 for a torrent seed box is pretty sweet.

Thank you, ill follow the template in the future.
