Description

Clearly the case is Meh. Hard for the wire management aspect. I think I did alright with this build. I have not thought about overclocking the CPU. Do I really need to? If I did then I need a better CPU cooling. I don't know. This beast works pretty good for me right now. I got it hooked up to my 55" Samsung HD 3D Tv.

CABLE MANAGEMENT!!!! Please do it, it will help you so much.

I can't really do much. This case sucks for it. I am open to suggestions but I cant fit anything behind the case.

Damn, this will hold your machine back a little on ventilation.

I might switch cases after a while. I also did add a side fan and a pci slot fan. That should help a little bit.

I have an Antec 1200 (notorious for bad cable managemnt, and I at least got the cables out of the way. If you can't hide them, move them up to stay out of airflow path or flatten them against mobo tray. Drill some holes for zip ties if you must, it's not like you can ruin the case...

Yea my first build, and my only build, was with this case, Dids quite have as many cables as you but there is no cable management at all in this case.

I cant fit anything behind my case either, but I still did a good job (last picture http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Kjc) Word of the wise; zip-ties are your best friend

+1 for the HTPC setup. The wired mouse and keyboard might give you some headaches depending on seating and it's been a while since I've seen two ODDs, but I like the components overall.

What's your take on the tuner card? I don't have an extra PCIe slot on my board, but my HTPC is missing this BIG time. I'd love to ditch this DVR rental fee...

The tuner card only works for Cable (not dish) and only for a provider that can give you a card. (comcast for me) but it's great. Can record to hard drive and put on my iphone to watch anywhere!

I think your parts list is wrong. In your one picture with CPU-Z it says the processor is the 4670k?

Didn't want you selling yourself short, +1. If you decide to OC you would need an after market cooler. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a great value 30 bucks and works great.

He can't with a H87.
