@welshcake Very nice! I used to build my own for about 20 years but I'm too old and lazy for that these days. My favourite mod was a 12V cigarette lighter in one of the front-facing 5.25 bays. For long LOTRO sessions I could use a car-style lighter, which inevitably pulled such a draw I had about a one in five chance of the rig shutting down. Good times.

@jaz Quite the creative mod there! I was upgrading from a Mini-ITX build to a full ATX.

New specs are NZXT H510 case, Ryzen 7 3700X and ASUS ROG Strix B450-F CPU-mobo combo, 8GB DDR4 RAM, my GeForce GTX 960 GPU from the old build.

It's so nice now having a more accessible case, especially with the side panel. I had the Fractal Design Node 202 which made for a neat console-like setup, but looking under the hood was a bit of a mission sometimes and I eventually grew out of the setup.

@welshcake yeh, I almost always went full size, usually accommodating a couple generations of hard drives and the occasional double video card setup. Enjoy the new rig!
