Looks good overall. Just a minor suggestion to clean it up a bit - you could probably hide the cables on the right side of the motherboard (and the GPU cable) and bring them out through the cable cutouts. Not a major gripe but offering it as an option.

Haha, I can believe it. I wouldn't consider that a major concern by any means, but they do look nice.

Sorry typed faster than my brain could keep up. Almost $300 motherboard....

Throwing this out there as a question for OP or anyone wanting to respond - this isn't meant as a knock on your choice at all: as a non-overclocker to this point, what makes an almost $300 worth the extra expense?

Cable combs perhaps, but really that's just being overly picky. White/black looks super clean!

Being picky, but as nice as the hardline looks, it would have been nice to see that used everywhere instead of the soft tube. That being said, it looks like that would be quite difficult with everything going on in the bottom of the case. Looks great regardless! +1

Incredible work to say the least. Takes quite a bit to make me read a full description of that length, but Metro... Metro will do it. I can't imagine the amount of time invested. Stunning.

Just enough RGB to add some nice accents. Talk about a close fit with the Vega and AIO. I thought mine was bad! Haha!

I've had no issues with mine thankfully. It's a night and day difference from my previous monitor. I suppose the market for g-sync monitors has changed now that some freesync monitors are g-sync compatible, but I'm happy with it regardless.

+1 for the lighting alone. I like the blue. Nice build - still ceases to amaze me how expensive the RTX cards are.

Well at that price, I can understand! I was looking at the price on your part list. Kudos for picking one up that cheap.

Small form factor has its challenges. Why such a monster of a power supply?

Tough call on graphics cards. I was lucky to get a 1080 before they stopped production but at this point I think your best option if you DO upgrade is to wait for some sales to hopefully grab something at a better price. That being said, it looks like you have a solid build and it would be awesome to see some other pics of it.

Looks good! I can attest to the tight GPU clearance as well, but it is a great case to build in.

Try a pic without the side panel on. The glass is giving reflections galore on that last shot.

I don't know that I would personally have the patience for a small form factor build, but I find them intriguing. Nicely done and just goes to show there's nothing wrong with reusing older generation parts.

I basically did the same with mine except used the 280 instead of 240. Maybe overkill, but there's the benefit of being able to lower fan speeds as well. One thing's for sure - OP won't have to worry about CPU temps!

Nice all around. The Meshify is easily my favorite mid-tower case, but I agree on the limited GPU space - it was a tight fit for my 1080 as well.

The only thing I would change for some of them is just to pull as much as you can to the backside of the case. The 8-pin motherboard cable will be tough to re-do, but generally there is a cut-out at the top of the case to route that cable through. With everything already assembled, you'll have a tough time with this one, but really the cable management isn't that bad.

In regards to your motherboard difficulties, you would probably want to remove any fans from the top and bottom of the case before trying to install it (first thing I do for my builds). Fans, unless attached to a radiator/water cooler are one of the last things to go in for me. Cable management doesn't look that bad, however you might want to adjust your graphics card (PCI-E) cables so that most of the excess that's visible is hidden. Otherwise it looks good (and flip that rear fan around so it exhausts).

Get them wires hid! Seriously though, aside from a touch-up on the cable management, this looks great.

Not bad at all for your first build. Cable management looks great too. An i5 will definitely suit you well with gaming.

Everything has been running flawlessly, no complaints at all. BIOS was easy to adjust for RAM speeds, installing Win10 via USB, etc. As far as software, I don't use the Precision XOC app as I am not overclocking anything. It wasn't necessarily my intention to go EVGA everything. Just happened that the deals worked out that way. Are you looking to include more RGB/interior lighting?

Comment reply on caument's Completed Build: RGB-Gone

Exactly. Technically, the cooler is if you plugin the included USB cable, but I chose not to.

Nope, there are versions of the Trident Z that do, but these are just black and white without LED.

Yes, it does.

None whatsoever. It's a bit of a tight fit in this case (I knew that ahead of time). Can't speak for the included fans as I replaced them immediately with the Noctuas, but it keeps things plenty cool. Fans are steady at 80% (1200 rpm).

Solid first build. An SSD will be a good addition down the road. Memory will always start at a certain speed by default so in the case of your memory you would have to enable XMP in the bios to get 3200mhz.

Games, not sure. Webpages you could splitscreen to basically make it closer to "normal" size.

This would be your best bet within budget for a 32" at 1440p. Pretty much your only option with a 16:9 screen ratio.

Of those, I would lean towards the LG (bottom link) because it is IPS. Again, I favor that due to the photo/video editing you mentioned. It also has a response time of 5ms which is decent for gaming. That's about as good as IPS monitors will get, with the exception of a few gaming monitors which are admittedly well out of your price window.
