If there's one thing that has me worried, it's the size. I'm hoping I can get all the hardware and importantly, the cables in properly. Whilst the CAD models should have made this a non-issue, they were only rough this time as I still haven't received the hardware. Usually I try to model everything in detail so I can avoid this exact issue.

Thank you for the kind words smile.gif Let's see if that opinion still stands if I've miscalculated and nothing fits tongue.gif

Small update today. I ordered some special, orange anodized screws for this build last week, which arrived on Saturday. I figured they'd be a nice way of injecting a little bit of colour to the frame without going overboard, plus they fit nicely with the theme.

The two halves are now tapped and fitted together, I also installed the mounting magnets into their cutouts.

What's that? Do I hear an update??

Finally the hardware has arrived!!!! Well, most of it anyway. Scan certainly took their time with this one, I was beginning to worry that the motherboard would go out of stock again before it was sent. This is very big news as it means I can once again progress with the build. I didn't want to go any further until the hardware got here in case I needed to make any alterations.

 

Quite a colourful bunch really


The Z170 Stinger is finally here. It's by no means a fancy board when it comes to features (no proper M.2 port seems criminal) but at least it does look very nice.


With the IO shield installed






Dominator Platinums, we've all seen these before. Best bit is these won't even be used, they're the wrong ones rofl. I need the low profile versions for this build, apparently my parts list edit didn't make it through. So whilst I wait for the proper ones, I'll rough it with these (they won't fit in the case).


This drive is really cool, but completely pointless for this build as there's no slot. I originally misread the spec sheet for the mobo, in the same way the plats weren't cancelled, neither was this. I'll use it in a future build.


Does look fancy though


2TB of SSD? Sure, why not?


Teeny weeny power supply, looking forward to seeing how this performs


One of the best bits about Noctua products is clearly the packaging. I mean just look at it, it's beautiful, shame the fan is vomit coloured though. I'll have to do something about that...




So pretty

Yeah it's got one of those rubbish Key-E ones, may as well not be there tbh. I guess for the few people who want wifi cards it's useful. Cheers though!

I'll be testing it all out today, fingers crossed everything arrived in good nick with no DOAs. I would suggest a different motherboard though (although you probably have already done that). This one looks very nice, but it's severely lacking in features, especially considering how expensive it is :/ They'd never have been able to get that pricing if there were a number of other boards around, nobody would buy one over say a RoG Impact or that interesting MSI one.
