      I just had an ibuypower in that same config at my shop. Was that an H170 Mobo?

        I just replaced the PSU on this very same Aurora machine. The extra 24 pin adapter is only to help from snags when opening the door. I used a CX550M without it just fine.

              I think it would have been cool if LTT would have also built their own 1500$ Custom PC to compare what you can do at that price if you know what you are doing by building one yourself.
