Fair enough. If it works for you that's what matters. It was just a thought/theory I had.

There is a mesh panel on the side directly next to the video card that allows the card to vent exhaust out of the case. I haven't had any issues with temps. The video card tops out around 60°C under intense load, but usually stays around 50°C during normal gaming. I could probably drop the temps further with a more aggressive fan curve, but I prefer to keep it quiet since my temps aren't bad.

They're anodized aluminum thumb screws. I don't recall where I got them. I've used them on every personal build since my first build.

Story time/nerd out: I have a history of giving my personal computers Japanese names. I had done some research awhile ago on the Shinto deity Hachiman and found that one of the symbols associated with him is the tomoe (see my user icon). I really dig that symbol and want to do a decal or paint a stencil of a tomoe on the case. So that's what I chose as the name.

I had considered it, but ultimately I thought the extra cabling would clutter up the case. Eventually I may custom sleeve my cables so that I can keep them short/out of the way.

Thanks! It took some work to get it where I liked it.

That will be my next upgrade. The monitors are from my last build.

Gaming is good. Windows 10 has a lot less overhead than 7 which was my previous OS. I don't know of anything that implements Direct X 11 yet, so I can't speak to that.

Thanks! I certainly didn't expect it!

Yeah, the tiny case was definitively a challenge. It was a lot of fun though.

Thanks! When I need more RAM I'll add another 8 gb. So far I haven't seen above ~60% usage.

Is that fan on the H90 intake to the case/push through the rad? If so that seems like a poor setup that will dump heat into the case. If it's pull through the rad/push out the case you don't really need the filter on the front.
