Part Reviews

Memory

The right compromise between price and performance for my needs.

Storage

Normal HDD for Data, Games, Backup etc. Nothing of special.

Video Card

Awesome GPU for the price. This is the Palit (dual fan) version. Just tried BF1. It runs smooth like butter, everything at Ultra.

Case

Gorgeous case for a white and clean build. I love it. 2 Fans included, (not bad). Really nice cable management system.

Power Supply

Just a normal PSU. The minimum for my needs.

Monitor

This monitor is awesome. Beautiful design with really small bezel! Good for photo editing and graphic design. Not bad at all for gaming even for an IPS monitor.

Very nice build if any plans at all to overclock get a front intake, but i recommend one anyway.

Ty.

I don't want to OC yet, but I'll put the top fan to the front side. :)

NO NO NO don't it will overheat yours system, that fans for outtake and if you switch it there will only be hot hot air in your system. the coolers will intake that air heating up you gpu & cpu just don't i might be wrong but i'm using common sense.

Do you not realize that there is a back exhaust fan too? Having only exhaust fans is even worse for a system, because there would be negative pressure, resulting in dust buildup and also worse temps overall. Also, hot air rises, so it will still go out through the top vent without a fan there.

uh u overpaid for that monitor but overall great build +1

Yeah, I'll definitively move the fan from the top to the front.. Im just lazy x'D BTW right now temp are just fine.

I see your GPU is 70C under load, I would reccomend just buying a small 120mm fan for intake, don't switch the one at the top it will increase CPU temps, not by much but still. another fan will only cost around 5-10$. as far as GPU, your temps will probably drop a solid 3-5C keeping the card nice and cool and maybe allowing room for more overclocking

Thank you very much for the tip! Any good fan that I could buy?

From personal experience, I would avoid cheap cooler master fans, especially ones with sleeve bearings like this one has. They are pretty noisy, especially over time once the bearing wears out and isn't refillable. Look for, at least, a ball bearing fan. Preferred brands would be something like cougar, be quiet, fractal design, ekwb, noctua, and some corsairs. Super cheap fans will just give you a headache making vibrations and all sorts of noises so just spend $10-$15 on a quality fan.

half off too so I would snag it pretty soon
