    No, but I love the way it looks . Also has great reviews. Might go full water-cooled in future and black and red theme , sleeving too. PSU is not modular but will try to make it look good and clean inside.
  5. Alright. Fair enough.

  7. Yeah, at your budget, might as well, since it isn't hindering anything else. :)
