Saw this case and loved it. My cousin wanted a budget gaming rig for him and his girlfriend (yup she games - lucky guy). She is totally also into the whole anime and steam punk thing... Got this done just in time for Valentines and so here we are:
Went the AMD route because we were on a budget. Originally the budget was $550... Problem with Intel, is that the mATX sized mobo was more also and if we were going to go with Intel, we would go big all the way and get the MSI Gene Maximus mATX. So, having to expand the budget on not just the CPU but also the mobo was a bit much. We could have gone with a different case, but this one was just perfect for the look we were going for.
The only thing different than what is listed is the PSU - Keeping to a budget and going for a look and finding a full modular kit... not so much choices left to us... So, Raidmax 635 bronze. full modular and with warranty from Newegg. Yes, I did cringe, but we are keeping an eye on it and so far so good. Pictured, we have a different G.Skill set, but we did go with the red one as listed = 2133 Cas 9 vs the blue at 2133 Cas 10
Note: if you go with this case = small hands (lacking that... ->), lots of patience, and lots of zip ties. Also go with a modular PSU to help with the space.
Very quiet. Huge. Looks great. Cools well.
Best AMD can offer for this size...
2133mhz and CAS 9!!! 'nuff said
Fast boot - I have the OS loaded on this as well my current pick of games
Been reliable so far
The R9 270X 4GB, I've really liked, and with the case and mobo only having the space to hold 1 full GPU, this one fit our budget and has a lot of bang for it's buck. I've been able to play Sniper 3 Elite on Ultra, Alien Isolation on Ultra (though you can really hear the GPU working for this one, but it handled it) This is what I did the most research on. For the price-point, it seems like this has the best bang for your buck.
This case looks great. It is also well thought out on the arrangement. It is really tight, but that is what should have been expected when getting this size case.
Its a great drive and has been doing well so far. But I think with any drive like this you will need some codecs to get all its features going... anyone have any suggestions and help on this would be much appreciated
