My first new system build in over ten years. Everyone talked me into dumping my old beige cases...which I did. So I treated myself to a new, up-to-date case, a NZXT H510 - Compact ATX Mid-Tower PC Gaming Case.

The internals are:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE B560M AORUS PRO
CPU: Intel Core i5-11400F
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB DDR4 3200
GPU: RTX 3060*, RTX 2060**
*
(arriving next week)
**(to be installed this weekend)
Currently using a simple GT 710 while setting up the system. I've got Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS installed, and [email protected] running. This i5(6C/12T) plus the GT 710 reportedly putting up 491K PPD according to FAHcontrol. The GT 710 itself is capable of 16.626 PPD, not a real powerhouse, but it's earning it's keep. ;)

System photos later on, the morning window light source is wrecking my best efforts at taking a decent pic.

Congrats, it's always fun to put a new system together & get all the tweaks to where you want them! :thup:

Even though I was not among those telling you to ditch the beige, I will say you'll be nicely surprised & happy with the wire management in a modern case.

This is a fairly simple case, but it's very wire management orientated. And the new EVGA PSU has all black, flat wiring that's easy to work with. It's funny, I didn't really want to have a clear side panel, because I was used to hiding the mess. But now I'm liking that the internals are nice and tidy. ;)

BTW, I still have a couple legacy rigs, they escaped the e-waste run. The Sun Microsystems case is going up for sale, and my old old first build(Y2K) will still make a great door stop.
