Asus Direct CUII 960
Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120mm
Cooler Master MasterFan Pro Balance RGB 120mm X2
This is my spare build so i was thinking of putting a 1080 mini or possible a 1070 Ti in it at some point.
Nice build nyk! My Shift should be delivered on Thursday from Newegg. I kept hoping that Amazon would get them in to use Prime and get it a few days sooner, but no dice.
I am very interested to see what the temps are like in this case since I went with the regular Shift. I will be using my H75 to cool the CPU. The X was just too tall for me to have as the HTPC, I currently have the Corsair 460X which is rather huge next to the TV.
My goal is to see if I can cram 3x SSDs and 1x 3.5 HDD in this. My motherboard doesn't have M.2 to consolidate one of these SSDs. I won't be upgrading my 4790k till next year since I want to see if Intel goes mainsteam with their 8 core CPUs or if they will stick with the 6 cores for awhile.
I am hoping that there are no issues fitting the Asus Strix OC 1070, it is a 2 slot so it should be good. I am contemplating soon to maybe get a 1080 Ti.
