Found a GTX 1050 with a white fan shroud on it for $130. Tempting.

Also a 1050Ti 3g for $169 and a 1060 3g for $229. Might go with the 1060. PCIe Riser Cable will be here tomorrow so I'll be able to put the video card vertically on the shelf above the PSU as I had originally intended.

About ready to start my "EVO" build! AMD FX 8320E 8 Core CPU with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO Air Cooler. 8GB of DDR3 RAM to start. I have an additional 8GB ready to go if I decide it's needed. ASUS 970 Pro Gaming/Aura ATX MoBo. This was originally going in the Thermaltake P3 Snow open case.

Ooops! Wrong orientation of the Heatsink/Fan. Original would've exhausted heat to the top of the case. Moved it so that air exhausts to the back of the case now. Mo Betta!

Got to love M.2 SSDs! 12 seconds total Boot Time from pressing the Power button to a working Win 10 Desktop.

And that's a "slow" SATA M.2 and not a PCIe M.2 SSD!

Mounted the 3.5" Desktop 2TB HDD..digging out another modular SATA power cable and the i5-7600K build is almost done!

Did a little Overclocking/Stress Testing on the i5-7100K build running using PCMark 10.

Overclocked to 4.8GHz from stock 3.8GHZ. Max CPU temp was 51 degrees C and GPU temp capped at 52 degrees C with a Modified MSI Afterburner fan profile. Not bad!

CPU sits at 31 degrees C at Idle.

PCIe Riser Cable came in today for the Thermaltake Snow build. Installed it and moved the video card to it's final resting place. Looks good to me!

Need to swap out the Blue SATA cable for the Desktop HDD for a black one and tidy up the cabling a little more and it'll be ready for sale.

Room for another M.2 SSD on the MoBo and 2x 3.5" and 2x 2.5" HDD or SSD inside the case back. MoBo has plenty of open SATA connections for them.

Will probably move the AMD R7 370 video card from the Snow build to this FX 8 core build. Then buy the GTX 1060 with the White fan shroud for the Snow build.

Loading up Win 7 Pro x64 on the AMD FX 8 Core. Then MoBo drivers and MicroCrapola updates. Add my usual Value Added Software Package and verify functionality. Then upgrade to Win 10 Pro and it's updates.

The AMD FX 8 core build with Red Lighting programmed on the MoBo and Case. Both can be changed to several different colors. More Bling for the $$$. The case lighting "Breathes" while the MoBo lighting is Static but the MoBo lighting programmed to "Breathe" also.
