Description

Black and Red theme again. But I like it. I use it mainly for gaming.

Sorry about the pictures. It was the best I could do which my crappy phone camera.

Part Reviews

CPU

Brillant. Managed to apply a stable and safe overclock of 4.5 GHz on a mini-itx case.

CPU Cooler

Outstanding performance regarding the size and price. The fan is dead quiet even at full speed.

Motherboard

Great motherboard. Perfect for my build. Just a bit pricey.

Memory

Its ram and it works. Got a good deal for this 3000Mhz 16gb kit. The heat spreader design is awesome.

Storage

First time using an SSD. I use this as an OS drive and so far I am impressed with the lighting fast boot times.

Storage

Does it job. Great price per performance.

Video Card

Beast of a card. Managed to overclocked to 1440 MHz at 1.175V but temps were reaching 84c The gpu fans had to be turned up as well as my case fans and it was too loud for me. I reverted to a compromise overclock of 1390MHz where my PC does not sound like a jet engine. :D

Case

Probably the best ITX case I could ask for. It was a pleasure to build in. Some screws were a pain since the threads were sort of bad.

Power Supply

Overkill for my build but one of the best modular PSU out there. The packaging from EVGA was well presented and felt so premium.

Case Fan

Replaced the fan included in the NH-L9x65 with this one to match my colour scheme. I I tried both fans though and performance-wise the included fan edges the redux one by 1c .

Monitor

Brillant for the price. Clear crisp image. Also has freesync which goes well with my GPU.

Could you provide the height of your RAM, and the clearance of your CPU cooler?
