My eight year old and I put this system together. Was just about done when I realized we forgot to properly route the CPU power, so had to take most of it apart again, but ended up looking very nice and was able to route the cables without much trouble. I also had a 3Tb WD red from a NAS with a failed network controller that we put in to. Plan is to later get an M.2, about 500Gb or so, and maybe an I5 sometime in the future. I decided it needed a bit of color so I put in some blue LED fans from cooler master as well. My daughter helped a bit too, mainly holding a flashlight and acting as an extra hand from time to time.
Good starting point, decent for a basic gaming rig.
A bit of overkill for what I needed but for the price I could not pass it up.
This is what I always use, i have had good luck with it.
I really enjoyed using this in the build, for the price it had all the features I wanted. The I/O shield is a POS, but it does the job.
Nice looking, worked great in my Micro ATX.
Good price for a decent SSD.
For the price I found it at made a lot of sense for my build.
I love that I can put stuff pretty much any way I wanted. The flare out on the side panels is great for cable management without looking out of place. I only wish all of the front panel connectors were all black.
Great price, great quality, I love the modularity and the covered cables.
Good basic fan.
Was a hundred dollars off and also had a 20 dollar rebate when I purchased it, the IPS screen looks great, and only had very minimal back light bleed on the center top, but it wasn't even noticeable without looking for it specifically.
Trying this out after my 3TB WD MyCloud drive's network controller crapped out on me. Using it as a NAS attached to my router with FTP access, is working great so far. I did not really need it for this build, but I wanted a new NAS for PC backups.
