System Build & Installation
For this system build I used the following hardware:
- Asus Rog Maximus IX Hero
- Intel 7700K Processor
- 4 x 8GB GSkill Trident Z 3000mhz
- EVGA 980ti SC
- Swiftech Drive H240 X3 AIO
- Thermaltake Toughpower 750w RGB
While installing hardware into this case I did run across a couple of things I hadn’t noticed before. I didn’t notice that the rear expansion covers were broken away pieces, and didn’t notice that until I went to install the graphics card, and had to remove the board to break out the slots. It makes sense that DIYPC includes 1 extra one in the accessory packaging.
I did have to remove the hard drive caddy in order to cable manage. If I was running a hard drive, I would have had a hard time getting decent cable management. The included tie-down points in the case is nice and in decent places as well.
The included RGB fans, in this case, are a very nice touch and I actually like them a lot. They are bright and the included fan controller makes them all sync up together. The button on the top of the case offers multiple settings as well.
