Thanks for the feedback. Can you be a bit more specific about how wire management could be improved.
I didn't want to be too tight $ wise for my sons build but do you really think it is a starter system. The components excluding OS, Monitor, keyboard, GPU came to ~AU$1330 or US$970 from the lowest cost Australian supplier.
Here is the windows rating. It's a bit better than a "starter" system IMO.

Hi,
Starter meaning as you described
gpu upgrade and probably psu depending on the gpu chosen

Wiring well if you look at other builds wiring either goes vertically or horizontally most never in a diagonal and as much as humanly possible hidden except for the actual connections
That usually gives it a cleaner appearance or more orderly

Mobo and cpu are good to go and are a good base ram is also pretty good
I never really count or take notice to monitor/ keyboards/.. those are mandatory anyway.

Here's my AMD rig in a 400R Corsair case it may give you some idea's for cable management, but each case/build has it's own issues and in the end the air flow in you build is just fine. I'll bet your son is digging the speed of the system.....nice build.

You guys are definitely neater than me with wiring. You should have seen it before I tidied up a little.

The temps seem good particularly for a Haswell CPU. Inside case dust cleaning is always an issue for me. I buy these cans of compressed air but when you can find them they are quite expensive (2 reasonable cleans per can). I'd like a low cost anti static compressed air unit but can't locate them here.

Hi,
I made some actual air filters for my new system,
Because the grid screens do not pick up micro fine dust
It was pretty easy to do using a real a/c filter and just flattening it out and taping it to the body and put the stock filter on top modern a/c filter material has a wire backer and is almost paper thin

My front filter I had to get a aluminum grid from Home depot so the filter material didn't get sucked into the fans
A little cut to size and taped the real filter material to it

I got some great advice from LaybackBear = Jack to also tape up all of the additional holes in the top and back of the case with multiple materials which the simplest was clear tape to keep my intakes and exhaust narrowed to where the actual fans were

So far it's working great
Micro fine dust is the killer it gets into everything.
Still experimenting on how long it takes before I need to clean or replace the filter material
I expect every month should be about right.

Pictures? You know it didn't happen unless we see pictures, right? Please keep us posted on this little experiment goes. I'm curious to see how well the dust gets filtered out and if airflow gets restricted or not.

Oh yea the pictures
The logic is,
If you can easily see light not much restriction is happening
The front filter is for a radiator so all the fans "all 4 of them" push/ pull are sp140's so they are already static air design

The bottom filter well it was a radiator intake at first same as above except it was the evga 980 hybrid
Now I replaced the gpu with a asus 20th anniversary gold 980-P
So it now has a af140 blue on the bottom still a pure intake on full speed,
Blocked the parts not under the fan with thin cardboard as per Jack's wonderful idea
Then just taped the filter material to it
The bottom of the case has small holes so no grid was needed

Thanks, Mike! It makes a sense to me now. Have your temperatures changed any since you put in the paper? Please keep us posted on how well the filter keeps out the really fine stuff, how often it needs cleaning and/or changing, and if air flow restriction increases much as dust builds up. I've been toying around with ideas for a future custom built case and have though about using a pleated paper furnace filter on a bottom intake.

Temps are good so says real temp utility never goes past 35c benchmarking I suppose that the corsair h110i gt doing it's thing
I do have a lot better exhaust than intakes but I feel better about it now with at least one on the bottom that is a true intake without going through a radiator

I kind of let the gpu do it's own thing now fan speed wise
I was cranking up the fan so it stays cool but I get better numbers if I leave it on auto
That way it gets to a operating temperature instead of staying to cool

Material wise for filters I started with an old speaker cloth but thought it was too thick ?
Then I just cut to the chase and used actual air filter material easy to find need a/c filters anyway for the house

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
