So the day after I bought my Q300L i saw a listing for one that was $20 so I bought it. After that I saw a listing for a B250M motherboard that was listed as having a bad ram slot. Hint, it's fine.

So for $30 I could build our room mate something to game on. Using the POS PSU that was about to go to our son. My old GTX 770 and an i5-6600 we got for free I built this:

There is a 500GB HDD. Lol. Look at the 2 SATA power connectors on the drive stack. The only reason I put them in the 3.5 bracket is this case used only had one set of grommets and 0 screws. So I left them stacked on rails.
