What the heck....why are they posting sideways.

:confused: Maybe this is one of the 'deficiencies' in the current forum software in the list of reasons for the upcoming change.


I fixed it anyhow.


Nice setup you have there. :thumb: At first glance, I mistook your tower for some kind of fancy amp! :lol:

Yes sir. Everything you see in those pics are new. I resurrected my old Intel build due to Covid-19....mobo's and PSU are very scarce and when they are in stock they're 2 to 3 times regular price. The only thing that has not be replaced it the RAM and CPU

So I opted to go with the aesthetics and creature comforts of a new Gaming/Office area. I did this purposely while I can still see. My eye sight is rapidly deteriorating than expected.

My first mid tower. If I had to do it all over again, I would. This mid tower is on the small side. Everything in there is so compact and tight. I would liked to have a bit more room...maybe an inch and a half on all dimensions.

I went too far the other way. My Corsair case is too wide for the intended slot at the bottom of my computer desk. As a result, my computer sits on the top of the desk.

That's why I have taken to using only micro boards these days with mid-size towers. We don't really need the ATX boards anymore because we don't add much to systems these days. And that way the system can breathe and IO have more room inside mid size towers.

Why didn't I think of that.

You know it's the most simple answers that goes right by/over us. That totally makes sense. I'll start looking at micro boards for my AMD retro fit in the near future.

Hey Jimbo that is the beauty of forums because we can share thoughts and ideas and grow. I started doing that a few years ago when I was looking at better flow of air in systems and also how to better accommodate these ever growing video cards. But over the years here I have picked up invaluable software programs and hardware ideas.

Nice Rig Ash! I like the simplicity of the build and I like the LED lighting. Not a huge fan of RGB. I see what looks like an MSI GPU and some Corsair ram but what are your build specs?
