I don't know how hot the VRM gets, but the CPU socket, aside from the water block, is completely open to the air. And the dust buildup is surprisingly non-existent so far, at least on the components. Probably on account of all the fans. The glass on the other hand is a little bit dusty.
For video editing!
Oh no it's utterly enormous, and it's mostly empty space too. Plus all that metal is really sturdy, which means it's really heavy, and the glass is even heavier. But thank you for the lovely compliment
Sure, $3,000.00, shipping not included, no returns, no warranty.
I got a good deal on it, and it runs slightly faster at a slightly lower temperature. I didn't want to overclock this build since it would be living in a closed cabinet under my TV.
Wow, I can't believe you got that PSU to fit in there with the SSD enclosure still attached! I have the same case and power supply for my HTPC, and I took the SSD enclosure out to make room for the PSU cables. Your cable management is nuts! What kind of upgrades are you thinking about making to this build in the future?
