10 yrs of saving for this new build. Ryzen 5 2600, AMD RX 5500xt, 32GB DDR3-3000, all in a case built like a fucking tank. So many payouts coming in all at once... did my luck really flip?

    Looks like a massive case. I would have bought a cheaper one and spent the money on a newer cpu or anywhere else that affects performance. But on the other hand, that case may last you for the rest of your life. If that's the case you want, so be it.

    Wow. This looks like a scene from a video game. At first, I thought it was a room in Fallout or Alien Isolation.

    Just saw it, do you not need front USB3 and Type-C? 🤔

    Why ddr3 though

    Why ddr3?

    Didn't know Ryzen supported DDR3 ram. I also didn't know DDR3 could go up to 3000mhz 😅

    On a serious note, congrats mate

    I thought that when I got my first AT Full Tower case..

    Though to be fair, you can still fit ATX stuff in it, as long as you artificially widen it a little where the CPU fan goes..

    GPU sag is easily fixed with a piece of wood. :-)

    It's very roomy in there, are you planning on filling all that space up ?

    Mine, I think I need something bigger than a full ATX tower..

    @Nanos you didn't check if the case was wide enough to fit the cooler, eh? That mod looks surprisingly clean.

    Usually cpu fan is pointed to the other way so the air moves towards the back of the case. The way you have it may work better though if you have case fans set up in negative pressure.

    @electrineer My old case was "ATX Full" according to its book so i bought an ATX Full case that didn't have a side window and had 3 front fan slots. I didn't know until after it got here that it had room for an entire second computer (only Mini ITX but still) in the bottom-right.

    It never occurred to me that the fan+heatsink might be a little too big for the case.

    It was one of those old, thick steel cases, so took it into the garden and panel beat it with a large hammer for quite some time.

    Nowadays, such a hammer would probably go through the side of many cases !

    And the paint would all flake off..

    I was quite surprised the paint bent as well. :-)

    Old PC cases was ideal for fixing cars. :-)

    I see you've gone for the 'close enough' cable management style.

    @gibus all i can do, some of it can't be poked back behind stuff and sone of it is only barely long enough.
