yeah I have had to point a few people to prebuilts recently. It is the only guaranteed way to get parts.

Even with pre-builts there is a delay. It's probably going to get worse too, I just hope my May ship dates doesn't get "delayed" itself (or worse, cancelled).

Why you bought a pre built with May ship date when you can nab one now?

Wasn't able to find any for the same price and the same (or close) specs.

UPDATE: Went ahead with the advice to change out the 120mm to a 280mm (Corsair iCUE H115i RGB Pro XT).

TIL that 280mm is actually two 140mm fans.

If changes are still possible, then replace the RAM with CL16 3600MHz... 3200 bare minimum.

I would seriously consider swapping out case to a mid tower at least. Unless you have a strong ITX need, you will probably get better thermals.

Also think you need to put in about 3600 MHz memory sticks in there. DDR4 3000 is really a poor choice imo.

Hope this helps.

Not too concerned about the memory, I can swap that out later with little issue when necessary at our Microcenter (memory isn't hard to find). I'll check the thermals but if needed I'll go old school and open the side of the case and put a vornado fan blowing on the side. Sure it will mean I'd have to clean it out more, but it would keep it cooler for sure. But I'm not overclocking so it should be fine.

personally not a fan of higher temps and louder fans, so i'd definitely go for a bigger case. But as usual it's up to you how and what you prefer, of course.

I'm so out of the loop hardware-wise i'm very thankful for every bit of advice coming from you guys.

Tha being said, i really envy you with a Microcenter nearby. We don't really have that kind of stuff here, well, we have Alternate, but that's not the same and in most cases NOT cheap.

I wouldnt be too worried about thermals at all. KAC is on this kick to get the lowest thermals possible and no one needs all that. If you turn it on and it works perfectly fine while gaming no need to go and take the side off and hunt for lower temps for no reason at all. Who cares if its running hot as long as it runs. Just enjoy the thing
