Comment reply on kill3650's Completed Build: First Build- 1080p with OC

I used a dremel and ruler to cut a square out of the top to allow air to pass through the cooler. I then bought 2 filtered fan covers and drilled holes around the cut-out square for the screws so I could mount the cooler and fan covers together. The filtered covers were only 4$ on eBay. It ended up working really well. I still have the cooler and it's been working great.

Thanks! I feel the same way, but the case with the LED fans only cost me about 32$. So I couldn't pass it up. Probably will upgrade to a full tower next time around like I wanted.

I can always upgrade my GPU, but for now with only a 1080p monitor the 1060 hasn't clocked out even at ultra settings for current gen games.

The second SSD was only 60$. I bought it to separate my OS from all my other programs. Even if I didn't buy it, 60$ wouldn't be enough to jump to even a low end 1070. Besides I'm only running a 1080p monitor, which hasn't clocked my GPU yet on ultra settings. A 1070 would be a waste, because the 1070 can run the same performance on a 27" 1440p monitor and that'd be way more then I wanted to spend. In my opinion, to have 15+ more fps for current games for just a 1080p monitor isn't going to make much of a difference on my current gaming experience.
