Description

i had to repost this due to an error. I'm using this rig for gaming, and basic tasks. DO NOT mind the mouse and the keyboard, for they are temporary and i will get a g500 and a cm quickfire rapid soon. More pictures will be uploaded soon, i can't find my actual camera. I'm also saving for a samsung 840 64gb ssd and 6 thermalright tr-ty 143 case fans. Oh yeah the 14ms on my monitor don't affect me AT ALL when i play video games by the way. This is Basically a teaser of my completed build, since i'm still saving for some components :) p.s. there was no color scheme whatsoever.

Are you pushing air through your evo or trying to exhaust it out the front? I would recommend pulling the air off the heatsink and out the rear exhaust fan, not through the front, for better temperatures.

Otherwise I gotta say you have a great part selection here, love seeing the caviar blacks! so tired of barracudas and blue drives haha

enjoy

i added an airflow scheme just for you-and the people wondering. also, thanks for the remarks! I also chose a WD because i had enough of the standard HDDs that everybody gets :) for the CPU cooler's fan, thanks for the idea, i will look into that. But as soon as i get those case fans, i'll put two on on the CPU cooler, one blowing air directly on the heat pipes and one pulling the air off of the heat pipes. As i said, this is in a slight temporary state.

Ahh got it, though a pull configuration will get more heat off the heatpipes than pushing the air through. I understand it is temporary, just nitpicking haha ;p

actually in a push or a pull it does the job similarly. its like useing it for water cooling and using the fans on the radiator. same concept

Had a good chuckle at the MSPaint airflow diagram. Don't get me wrong, it serves its purpose, it's just funny...

I really think this is nice and with the upgrades you speak of will make this really complete. Great grab on the GPU and I like how you removed the upper portion of the hard drive bay to make more room and even better airflow. Most of all, congratulations on your first build. How did you feel the first time you pushed the power button and it posted??

Could have grabbed a 2TB Seagate for $99, just as good. Also, when was this built? As a Z87 + i5 4670k would have been more beneficial.

So much storage would be utterly useless! this was build five months ago, but i finally decided to post it today :)

with no SSD, it's good to have the extra speed that a Black has.

Benchmarks and real world testing show that the Barracuda series is either right at or +/- 10% of the Blacks in some tests. The price/storage benefit the Seagate has while being so close to the Black in performance makes it a better choice imo.
