After being a console player my whole life I decided to build my own gaming PC.
Everything has been working good so far. The temperatures are nice under both idle and load, the tower is pretty quiet and looks cool.
I have not tried a lot of heavy-graphics games, only Metro: LL and BF3. Metro: LL average FPS is 44 with everything maxed out except SSAA, and BF3 average FPS is 62 with everything maxed out. I also used some Arctic Cooling MX-4 I had before the build on both the CPU and GPU, no problems at all.
4 case fans (3 of the are the stock ones, Fractal Design Silent Series R2):
- 120mm Front Intake.
- 120mm Front Intake (CM Blade Master, the one included with the Hyper 212 EVO)
- 120mm Back Exhaust.
- 140mm Top Exhaust.
2 CPU Fans:
- 120mm Push Corsair SP120 QE
- 120mm Pull Corsair SP120 QE
Suffers from coil whine from time to time, sometimes it is loud but only lasts for some minutes, most of the it is silent.
