Description

Work/Game Station. I'll use it mostly for school work (CAD, 2D/3D Design), with some gaming on the side. I wanted to future proof this PC so I can get a few years out of it (with some additional modifications). The cable management side was a real pain, but that was likely due to the fact that I probably could have done a little more research on the case. A better pre-build could have been done as well.

In case you're wondering: Yes, I will be removing that Fragile sticker from the glass. The glass didn't come covered when It arrived like I saw in the videos I watched. So the fragile sticker is stuck directly on the surface of the glass.

Future Mods/Upgrades: The two front fans that came with the case will be replaced with Thermaltake Riing Plus 200mm fans so everything can play nice with the TT Sync LED controller and the RGB software (minus the keyboard and mouse). Currently, the RGB on both the front fans and the Thermaltake fans I bought are being controlled by the case. I'll also need to return the 360W UPS I bought and later buy a better one due to how much power this case needs. I also wan't to play around with translucent rocks and LEDs and see what kind of effect I can get going inside the case. I want it to look kind of like the inside of a geode.

Looks good! I'd be curious how it does in the 3D stuff. Are you planning to use Revit or any other 3D software other than autocad?

Maybe SolidWorks or something like that. I haven't had a chance yet to check out the performance with any 3D software yet. But I will as my semester continues.

Thanks! I appreciate it. I'm really hoping I'll get some good use out this PC.

Nice, but the cable management could use some work.

Yeah, we didn't do the best job on cable management. One thing we should have done is finish the pre-build outside of the case. With that we could have spent more time figuring out what goes where (and labeling cables) before putting everything in. But we got a little ahead of ourselves.

First build though; learned a lot.
