    To rich for my blood , that's alot of PC. 419 running watts at stock , you wont need a bunk heater with that config . I have a office at home and when I'm running my 3600 and 1660S there is a temp change in my room that's noticeable. My Msi laptop with i7 and 970 gtx keeps my bunk toasty when running wide open . What kind of monitor you gonna run ? Your gonna need to spend another 5-6 Bill's to match that setup , 240mhz ?

    That's the power running flat out though. Most games won't need nearly the full CPU, and most graphics jobs are intermittent, unless you're running furmark or something. Still a fair bit of heat, but not anything an open window wouldn't fix, or just keep the heater off if it's a bit under 50 out. I've only got a regular 4K monitor at the moment. I'm waiting on decent high refresh hdr 4k monitors before I upgrade. I run a soundbar that fits perfectly on top of the fridge area in the LT.

    I'm running a Aoc 1ms 144mhz monitor, my kid plays same game on his ps4 pro and was blown away at the response time and smoothness of the game . I have been looking at monitors but this 2 yr old monitor still holds up .

    it is a nice set up, but too much money for a TT system. Plus I don't run high end enough games to really need all that.

    VERY nice! That is a beast. What monitor are you pushing with that? (1080? 2k? 4K?) 60 hz or higher?

    I used this case , it's a couple yr old design but it was affordable and easy to work with .

    that looks similar to mine I have at home, different brand, though.
