Description

My English skills are really not the best so I have to make it short:

My build is not 100% finished yet, but it works. I still have to buy a graphics card... a gtx 780 ti hopefully.

Problems I had:

-The 8-pin CPU cable wasn't long enough to hide it behind the mobo -> I ordered a white sleeved adapter.

-The NZXT Sentry Mesh fan controller I bought makes.. kinda.. "interesting" noises. It works but.. nah.

Oh and if you wonder, I made a custom side window. as braces i used 16 of the fan grommets which came with my case. Fits perfect!

Also I removed the upper HDD cage for better airflow.

My PC is really silent and the temps are ok (28°C idle, 55°C load @4.0GHz). The fans do not run at full speed! So better temps are possible.


Update: I can't flip the PSU because the mesh on the fan makes it too high. So it doesn't fit anymore. The only thing you could do is to put the piece of metal (psu.. holder? ^) out of the case. Look at the pics!

Update: I ordered white sleeved cable extensions for the cpu and the mobo cable and 2 corsair af120 performance edition fans (and some y-cables) for a better look! I'll mount the 2 new fans in the front and the ones which are there now in the top. I hope i get them at saturday

Update: Some people asked me about my solid window so I uploaded some pics. I used a (little) buzzsaw and a normal drill.

Update: My parts are finally here (after 2 weeks, special thanks to alternate ._.) and I put the 2 af120's in the front and one standard coirsair fan in the top and the other behind the lower hdd cage. Also i bought a ssd (samsung 830 128gb).

Also, you should probably flip your PSU over. It will allow you route your CPU cable through the back.

but the way it is it pulls hot air out

Yes, it's pulling hot air out of the case. Right into the power supply. Don't you think that it should draw some air from under the case, where it's not already hot? It also should not be competing for the same air as the graphics card.

well the positive aspect of this is that it keeps hot air generated by the psu from rising and being fed into the graphics card

I cant flip it because the mesh on the fan makes the psu too high and it collides with the .. piece of metal in the case (above the psu). I cant explain it better but im gonna upload a picture

edit: also if you have no dust filters (the c70 has some) you should always mount it like i did

Probably could have gotten a slightly cheaper PSU, but that one isn't bad.
