I'm going to have to stop reading it because it's looking like it will cost me money if I keep reading. lol

Nice job, Tommy.
Ha Thank you for the compliment

I was saving up for this build instead of going devils canyon ,I recall when 4th generation was on the scene i bought 3rd Generation and seriously didn't let me down but this time around i plotted on getting one

I just hate the Gigabyte board didn't work out it had tons of awesome features

Only thing i didn't use was the plate for the water cooler it seems to be useless

other than this it offers a lot of room and serious mod possibilities

I personally like the PSU cover it makes it look very neat ,I do wonder does it make the PSU generate more heat but i doubt it

The stock fans are pretty good but i swapped out the Exhaust for a 140MM Corsair AF LED White

so now my PC looks Ghostly

For the price this is one Badass case

The reason I ask is because Steve and I use the case.

I have no problem with power supply temp. Of course the fan on the power supply is in direct line with the inlet of the side cover. I just keep the filter clean.

I have spent a few hours today looking at videos for a new case and so far haven't found anything better for the money. I'm in no hurry so I will just keep looking.

The pins on the front fan cover/filter broke so I had to make a rigging for that.


Misunderstood what case Tom was using.

Nothing to be sorry bout. It is a rather unusual name.

It was a budget case ,I didn't want to spend more than $150.00 but this was a Diamond in the rough purchase

LAYBACKBEAR: No need to apologize though your input was still helpful and you can admit it which is always good Characteristics

Yet nice case wish I needed more front bays
I like my Corsair 450D's they are perfect 2 front bays and the corsair H110i GT fits on the front for clean intake air

I waited to jump to skylake i could of went Haswell but honestly these upgrades hit so freaking quick you really can't decide

In two years a bunch of different platforms have risen up it's hard to compete with unless you have nothing else to do with your cash

The CPU, a small journey
We all know what the CPU is, some of us know how it works. To me it is a bit of a mystery how it does all it does. Here is an old AMD Athlon64 3500+, 2.2Ghz and it is about 1 9/16th" square. A pretty tiny device containing millions or billions of transisters, memory controller, instructions, and...
