Awful case that overheats! Why not use it fully and make a flamethrower out of it! :)

Its easy actually, buy AMD CPU and overclock it to 5Ghz. And u can buy Titan Z or GTX 690 for it :D

Or an i7-4770k with a GTX 480/TITAN X.

That's a bummer that this case is not ventilated well, cause it looks cool. =(

Its the contrary.. you can mount 2 (120mm fans) on bottom panel and top panel, one 92mm fan on rear and one 80mm on front panel. It has many defects but ventilation aint one of them.

Good to know, thanks! I was just piggybacking off the two comments above, I have no personal experience with this case.

Reading your write-up on the filters, sounds like that's where the bummer lies.

4.8 GHz at 1.46V? That's... pretty high. I also think that would explain a lot of your overheating issues.

Maybe add an intake fan?

I have the Cougar QBX Kaze which is meant to offer more ventilation. I'm still in the middle of my build but my question is are you able to put the side panel with the HDD Drive Bay over the Darkrock TF? I really like the look of this cooler and may consider using it. Also, is it possible you can take a few more pics of the full side to get an idea of how much clearance there is? Thanks!

Try adding a front and rear fan

Need slim rear fan, cause its not fit non-slim. Front can fit only 72mm fan :( Allready ordered Noctua NF12-F12 industrial for bottom

if you don't mind the look you could also try putting the fan outside of the grill :)

How easy was the installation process for the Darkrock TF ? I am thinking of using this mobo+cooler combo for an NCase M1.

Thanks.

It was extremly hard actually, and i guess darkrock TF dont fit into Ncase M1 with this mobo. Just take NH-C14 for it

Problem is that I HATE the beige fans.. Why Noctua persists with them is beyond me.

You can use Industrial PPC fans i guess :)

Did the Darkrock TF block the PCI port ? From what I see it didn't, but I want to knowfor sure.

Thanks.

Nice build! How is the RAM set holding up?

Did you end up putting some case fans on this build? My QBX KAZE has 6 120mm case fans all inside. I imagine you can add some intake and axhaust fans and fix all of the heat issues... I don't know of many cases that will stay cool with, no fans...
