I used a splitter cable (which came spare with the pwm cpu fan I bought) to run both of the front fans from the same header

I used one 8pin EPS for the motherboard (in addition to the 24pin). I just used the psu connector for the GPU because as you say, the distance is much shorter and no extension is required.

good choice on the sfx format psu. That should take away any of your concerns about airflow. Good luck with the build :)

Hi sorry I had to re-run the test as my motherboard had automatically raised the cpu voltage meaning the whole system was running hot. I've fixed the issue, re-ran the same gaming test (Just Cause 3 at max setting 1440p resolution and fixed to 60 fps) and added a picture with results. The GPU runs at a steady 48-49 degrees when idle and goes up to 60 under load. The CPU idles around 28-30 degrees and goes up to about 50 under load.

as previously mentioned I was running Just Cause 3. I've looked around and it seems the normal operating range for Core temperature is as follows:

  • 80C Hot (100% Load)
  • 75C Warm
  • 70C Warm (Heavy Load)
  • 60C Norm
  • 50C Norm (Medium Load)
  • 40C Norm
  • 30C Cool (Idle)
  • 25C Cool

Edit: I did some checks and it seems my bios was running a voltage of 1.32 when default is 1.2. I turned off the auto setting and I'm idling at 25 now

yeah everything is at stock speeds. I thought cpu temps were a little on the high side myself but nobody else I've spoken to seems bothered. I tried reseating the cooler but it didn't seem to make any difference. Maybe the noctua paste isn't up to scratch or these temps are to be expected. I'm not sure when there is conflicting advice

I added a picture of usage and temps while running Just Cause 3 at max setting 60fps and 1440p resolution. tbh it's the cpu temps that bother me more than the gpu!

liquid coolers don't really appeal to me but you're right about the SPU and OC'ing. There is a m.2 slot I'll try to take advantage of in the future and maybe ditch the loud and large hdd. Thanks for the message

thanks man, honestly the only regret is the gpu. Going back I would go for a cheaper 1070 and upgrade again in the future but hey, mistakes are to be learned from :)

why is everyone complaining about cable management? You have a water cooled CPU and a nice open case with fans for intake and exhaust- it's perfectly fine. Congrats on putting it all together - I can identify with the anxiety of spending so much on a system as I'm doing the same right now (just the GPU left to buy). Well done on the rig :)

I'm sure temps are fine but a quick tidy up with some cable ties would make any future access a lot easier. Really nice little budget build though :)

awesome build! Even more impressive is your long term commitment and perseverance to finally build such a nice PC after 3 years. Hope you enjoy it :)

I think they spent too much on that gpu considering the ancient macintosh monitor!

I'm probably gonna use the same PSU and case so thanks for the heads up. Where did you get the combs for the tidy cable management?

the silverstone sst-sx700 PSU could help with that issue in the fractal nano s as it will leave a much bigger gap between gpu and psu
