I would add or swap to an sdd for the boot drive. It also looks like your monitor has no speakers, so plan for that.

It's definitely overkill. I also use it for school which is autocad and arcgis packages

It works just fine! However, I have some sort of error where I need to turn wifi on/off every time I wake from sleep in order to actually be connected. Because strength is 100% when it is connected i'm guessing this is a software bug

In all honesty? It normally falls on my list of least favorite colors (right behind orange and yellow) but the deep green shade compliments the wood grain.

This build is no longer, but the PSU was more than enough. I have upgraded to a 600w since, but I am also running a custom loop on my cpu now (room for a gpu loop). For a similar build I would go nicer over bigger. Aka G3 over GS. Check out my other build to see what the 600w powers

Thank you! I was a little skeptical at first (the case is pretty big in person) but now that it is finished I am very satisfied with it.

I actually had one of those in there before the custom loop. There is more than enough room for this (You could probably fit a 280). You may be confusing the Shift and the Shift X. The only awkward part is the tubing, it really pushes against the glass if you dont have a way to hold it down.

Look at pic 17 and you will see how much it wants to stick out

...first got into building computers, I thought I'd be the last person to dip my toes into watercooling, but here I am.

I feel like I can relate to this statement, nice work! Normally I would say something like this should be featured, but I just posted my own build ;) +1

Thanks! The lower feet were a bit tricky. Rather than using the original pegs to hold the glass, I swapped them out for bolts/wingnut with a head that fit in the guides. I added rubber latex o rings because the metal on tempered glass seemed sketchy.

I literally spent days trying to figure how how to mount a pump in this case, how did I miss this one?! This looks super clean and dosnt give you the same sag you would find on the pump shelf.

Soooo many headachs, I'm going with watercooling, and I didn't know what it meant to have a hot/constricted case before this one. Parts of the case are a breeze, and then there is the thumb screw for the gpu bracket.

If you're good with cable management (and have some ties) you can make them part of the build (be sure to hide the cluster up and under the top of the desk, all you can see under my desk is the power strip cable - the power strip is hung upside down under it). Check out mine, I think I did okay, and it looks better in person.

First builds can still have clean cable runs! What it really comes down to is if that is the designers priority or not.

But if you are student you should see if you can get a Windows Pro license for free from your school- legally! Thats what I did. It may expire when I graduate (not really sure) but thats a problem for another time.

Second these choices. 8gb is on its way out for a number of tasks and ssds are sooooo much nicer for the OS. Are you a student? You may be able to get MS Windows for free from your University - legally! I had the same PSU in my old build- its awesome, but you may be able to save a few extra bucks getting the 550

This is awesome, but i'm a little confused at how you cut the laminate at the top/bottom? You're cut looks so clean. When you mention that you tape the knife off, do you mean tape all of the blade except a <mm or so of the tip? Then do you just cut on the fly - maybe it's easier then it looks but you line is very straight and that seems near to impossible to achieve?

Where did you get the Hifi feet, and do you think you could attach them to the foam inserts that are the current "feet" for horizontal use?

Do you think you could fit this rad (https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/radiators/radiators-active/20473/alphacool-nexxxos-st30-full-copper-x-flow-240mm-radiator?c=6566) in there?/If not, could you mod the case so the bottom fan is a slim to drop the 120 rad, or run the top tube in cable compartment. TLDR can the rad be 13mm taller?

I hoping to build this so it can lay flat. Do you think you could turn the pump around so the tubing comes out the bottom?

Do you think you could run the reservoir facing the other way aka ports show on the GPU side? I want to move my parts to this case and have it lay horizontally - I believe this means that the reservoir will have to face a differnt direction so the water level meets the tubing.

Do you know if that pump has the same dimensions as the https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-100-spc-60-mx-pwm-incl-pump? (I cant find the ACR dimensions anywhere). Im looking into upgrading my build to hard line and I am having a hard time figuring out how I want to mount the pump. Does yours make a lot of noise?

I looking at this config or mounting their D5 pump horizontal with the top facing the window of the case. Specs say it should work, but i'm a little hesitant because I have seen literally no reservoirs mounted this way. I though about doing it this way:https://pcpartpicker.com/b/NxxG3C but I find the sag and sticker super unappealing.

LOL posted a comment and then scrolled up to see that you pretty much said what I said but better. Kubuntu for KDE, Arch if you want to put in the time.

Arch is by far by fav, but you can't "just install it." It's also a rolling release so you update like every 5 minutes. BUT you could try Manjaro or Antegros if you want the Arch feel. I personally prefer the KDE environment over Gnome so I would use Kubuntu if I went the Debien route.

The operating systems are actually on two drives (the third drive is for files/games), but that did make everything easier. And I love the case, I only wish there was a way to get Aura sync for mobo lights on linux/OSX

It's a triple boot, Windows, OSX and Arch Linux. Duel booting with OSX is super easy, triple not so bad if your Linux has a GUI, but Arch was a PAIN.

If you want to check out triple booting check out my journey: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/completed-triple-boot-on-asus-z270i-7700k-high-sierra-arch-linux-windows-10.244501/#post-1682283

For a simple duel boot head over to tonymacx86 - you will need access to a working mac to download OSX. I went to the library ;)
