I didn't see your post until now, so I assume you've already bought a case and built your rig. I honestly don't have issues with airflow, but I have a multitude of fans and the top-mounted radiator. It stays relatively quiet. Also, I don't really over-clock. I did it for a while, but currently am running stock setting on my CPU. I did run into issues with OC'ing where it seemed like my processor temp ramped up too fast compared to what others on forums were saying... but that could have been because i'm a newbie with overclocking.
I think that overall, I probably would have gone with a different case, but the main reason is that this one is just so damn heavy. I put together a friend's PC with a Fractal design case, and although that one seemed cheap in comparison, it was probably a third the weight.
Thanks man! Not sure I'd get the case again if I had it to do all over, actually. It was a pain in the butt to fit the top radiator, which also messed with my cable mgmt... and this is certainly the heaviest case I've ever built in.
No room to route it from up top; literally the mobo almost touches the fans on the radiator above.
Very nice. I had the Klipsch 2.1 system back in college and it got abused. Ultimately developed a short of some kind.... I miss them.
lol ketchup and mustard cables. Not sure if this is a real term or just a joke but I'm laughing regardless.
Love the speaker setup. If I wasn't in an apartment, I'd upgrade in a heartbeat.
Is this true? This website will say something like "469 watts" calculated for this build.
Trying to get an idea of what's best for cooling mgmt in a new build (haven't built a PC in ages and have never used a liquid cooler). Is this a typical set-up? To have a 240mm radiator up top, Fan blowing out in the back, and then as many fans as you can place in front for intake?
Were you worried at all that a 750w PSU wouldn't cut it? I'm planning a similar build but newegg's PSU calculator implies that a 750w PSU would be cutting it very close.
Did you just use the 2 included case fans in addition to the 240mm CPU radiator/cooler? I'm thinking of buying the P110 Silent case (I prefer discrete) and am wondering about cooling capabilities, specifically whether I should buy another case fan for the front.
