So I finally was able to put my hand on a Dan case at the almost retail price (had my eyes on that case since I knew its existence) and now it's being ship on my way. I decided to create a log to show you the process of building in it (and a mod I want to do, explain below).
Let the fun begin!
Feel free to share any insight and to answer my two questions below, as to ask for sexy pics afterward.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
But first I need to buy the parts for my build conversion. I'm keeping my GPU, CPU and ram, and I need some advice for the motherboard. Which one do you recommend me to take? The first one (below) is the expensive and beautiful one, and the second one is the cheaper one and still functionnal (but without any usb c). I'm leaning to choose the last one, to save on cost, but do you have any recommendations? (I need a top m.2 mount as there is no fan in the case and I'm worried that the m.2 ssd will be suffocating behind the board.)
Also, I will move to the holy kingdom of NVME drive. But am I better off to buy the 500Gb 960 EVO that I know will be reliable and fast, and grab a 840 Pro 256 GB laying around in my house for my game drive (which will be sufficient for my needs), or go straight for the Intel 600p 1 TB that is slower? (the 1TB 960 EVO is kinda too expensive for me to choose).
GPU: EVGA GTX 960
RAM: 2x DDR4 HyperX Fury 8 GB
PSU: Silverstone 500W SFX-L
SSD: 500 GB 960 EVO + 256 GB 840 Pro or/ 1 TB Intel 600p
Motherboard: ASRock H270M-ITX or/ Asus ROG STRIX Z270i
Cooler: Silverstone AR05
For the fun part. My PC will go from that
And I'm planning to do an acrylic extension to have a purple accent, like this picture, but the acrylic being thinner.
I'm open to suggestions and discussion. It's just a teaser that will be updated as the build progresses.
