Can you AIO Liquid cool this?
feekes (20 days ago)
JeepTravels anytime!
JeepTravels (20 days ago)
Thanks for the quick reply! Definitely helped me choose between the two cases I'm choosing between. Thank you again
feekes (20 days ago)
JeepTravels The left panel of the case allows for one 120 mm fan. If you decide to take the route of water cooling, the left panel supports a 240 mm radiator with a single 120 mm fan or a 120 mm radiator with a 120 mm fan. Due to the size of the case, flex tubing is recommended for water cooling.

Could you build an Graphic Card in?
feekes (25 days ago)
ANĐ3Y absolutely! Yesterday put in a Sapphire nitro+ with room to spare. It is an amazing case for small builds.

Can it fit graphics card? Feels can't. Can u try?
feekes (1 month ago)
Froilan Gubangco actually put in a Sapphire nitro+ rx 580 today!

Does this model requires an external CD-ROM or there is some space for it to install one?
Jon Hdez (1 month ago)
feekes Thank you for the information Feekes, I will go ahead and buy one because I have this model and didn’t know if I was able to install a CD-ROM on it or not. Once again thank you.
feekes (1 month ago)
Jon Hdez there is space for a slim slot loading only. Right where the top cover pulls back.

Very nice. I'm thinking about a same build with different rams. Luckily you use the stock cooler too, so i have a question. Can you please gather some temperatures, especially in long gaming sessions? I don't want to remove the side panels, hope it's cool also in closed form.
Jocek (1 month ago)
Thanks! Anyway, i found a more recent cougar case, same specs and dimensions, but it has grills on every side, i think i choose that.
feekes (1 month ago)
Jocek I'm bring it with me to work tomorrow and have it loop through some benchmarks to get dinner long run temps. Keep in mind the side panel havln have a fan mounted on it, so may be cooler with it on.

Hello! What with temperatures? i want to buy this motherboard but i have ryzen 1600 + gtx1060 and i need to know how it is hot. Can you check tmp sensons in hwmonitor?
feekes (2 months ago)
AmurLoveYou yes it is. In fact in most cases you can passively split the signal. Amazon sells 4 pin fan splitters for less than 5 dollars. I'm using 2 in my main workstation. PWM works fine through them, just no independent control.
AmurLoveYou (2 months ago)
The motherboard has 2 fan connectors and one is for the processor. I have two noctua nf-s12b redux 1200 pwm, is it possible to use two fans in one 4-pin connector using fan hub? Thanks, it is enought!
feekes (2 months ago)
At 3.8ghz overclock at rest with the stock cooler we are sitting at 36c on the CPU and 33c on the GPU. Loading the CPU and GPU to 100% for 10 minutes we see temps at for the CPU and GPU peak and level at 60c. GPU was running at 1240Mhz. hwmonitor would not give me the statistics for the GPU temps so I just used GPUz. Anything else your interested in?
feekes (2 months ago)
AmurLoveYou sorry for the delay, I have it packed up for us to compile that in class today. Be a fun task for my students.

any results?
DocApizz (3 months ago)
i have some question first i have PSU with 150mm long atx in website itsonly accomodate 140mm can i bending the slot for psu for fitting ?, second i have 240 mm rad but i want to use 3,5 inch HDD which it cant cause it blocked by radiator can i put the HDD below VGA or PSU ? maybe ijust use tape for holding HDD hehe
feekes (3 months ago)
Let me know how it goes, I'm curious if you can make it work.
DocApizz (3 months ago)
feekes the case already bought its on the way from the seller hehe this my mistake not to research the detail and i thought i can mod to fitting psu the case
feekes (3 months ago)
DocApizz I'll see what other case I can find in an affordable option. So you need 240mm rad and 3.5 inch disk. What else ?
DocApizz (3 months ago)
feekes ya but h200i the price is to expensive here, ya i will try to mod and i still have 2.5inch hdd and maybe i will choose air cooling cause my aio hose not to much flexible to move there possible to leak thanks bro
feekes (3 months ago)
Unfortunately how the bracket is built on top to accommodate the power supply extension cable and support the frame I think the 140mm is truly a max. Sounds like you are needing to put a lot of gear into a small chassis, take a look at NZXT's offerings like the h200i. It will fit a 240 mm Radiator but the 3.5 in drive is a tough one with the rad.

Very nice video. It's a shame that it's so expensive to build an entry level computer now. DDR4 pricing is still a huge problem even when buying an APU (and Ryzen prefers faster memory). AMD's new APU's are still a godsend though.
feekes (3 months ago)
Void Star I can't wait till normal memory prices on DDR4, be nice to not have half of the system price be tangled up in it. Thanks for the comment!

600w?!?! Wtf that's way tooooooooooo much
james lanier (2 months ago)
you can never go to big
feekes (3 months ago)
Kim Jong-un love it, so long as we don't get into who's power supply is bigger right.
Kim Jong-un (3 months ago)
Well that escalate quickly
feekes (3 months ago)
Kim Jong-un Wait, did I just agree with a dictator lol.
feekes (3 months ago)
Kim Jong-un agree completely!!! But I had it on hand so it netted a 0 cost.

How does it play New Vegas? :D
feekes (2 months ago)
H31MU7 most definitely.
H31MU7 (2 months ago)
Not bad at all! I still think the 2200G is the pick of the bunch for value though :o
feekes (2 months ago)
So having some issues with getting on screen FPS counters to work in this game, but it is a solid 60 at max settings in 1080. Impressed. With fortnite i am getting ~50 steady with medium settings no AA. Overall not too bad for an IGP
feekes (3 months ago)
H31MU7 noted! I'll put that on the list to test, but being its an older game it should be able to rock it at 1080 60. I'm interested to see that one myself, it's the BEST fallout.
I'm out y'all (3 months ago)
How much did it cost all together?
feekes (3 months ago)
I'm out y'all fortunately I had the SSD and the power supply already purchased and on the shelf, so $540. DDR4 memory is by far the most expensive part right now at $250. Keep that in mind if you go out to build, just watch for sales.
feekes (3 months ago)
Let me know what you think and what performance numbers you would like to see. Thanks for watching!

Nice build, but for only itx + apu I would use a smaler case. For this system I suggest a SFX psu (modular), if you want to upgrade it later with a full size GPU. I´m in love with the QBX =)
