I've been a member of the community since I bought my 630i several years ago. Although i've rarely posted, I thought, Since I used A LOT of all your collective knowledge to research the correct parts and make sure everything would fit nice and tidy into my old 630i case, I'd like to share with you my results so far. IT's pretty much just the stock case and power supply atm. Of course I'm still using the stock I/O board to control the lights and front panel, although my next Buy may be a new case, but def a power supply, so there is a chance very soon that there will be no more 630i parts to my RIG at all. anyway, here are some stats and pics for the impatient tl;dr people. Asus Maximus VI Hero Motherboard
Intel Core i5 4670k CPU @ 3.4GHz - OC'd to 4.2GHz
8 GB G.Skill Ripjaw X - 2 x 4GB
NVidia GeForce GTX 970 Superclocked w/ ACX 2.0
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler
Various other minor mods to the case and fans for better air flow. Now for some Pictures
(I know my wires are a mess. I plan to take care of that after getting a new case. )
any suggestions for a low budget =>700W power supply and a case for good air flow would be appreciated.
Here's a link to my Google Gallery. I tried to add descriptions but I don't know if you can see them. I tried to get the whole rig, some dark shots so you can see the lights, and some close ups of the more important elements like the gfx card and the cpu cooler.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask, or comment. Thank you. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0njUpPVCzZFfjVwNU1vWXR2Wk55dGIxR0RPcm5xQUJCbWdPQTRVTmZsM0RSOVcxam9hR28&usp=sharing
