Nothing like the smell of gaming in the morning...
I wanted to take a stab at building my own PC after years of buying pre-built machines that always left me wanting more. I recently got a new position at work and decided to treat myself to a new toy since I doubt I'll be getting a next gen console any time soon and this is something that I always wanted to do.
One of the main focuses was to have optimal airflow. The front, bottom and side fans are intake with the rear fan as exhaust. I also have the H100i set up in a push/pull configuration.
I clearly need to do some cable management but I wanted to make sure everything worked and was installed properly before I went zip tying everything. Which leads me to my main problem...fan management. It seems like I have a multitude of options, whether it's asus fan xpert, corsair link or the phantom 630's fan hub. So far I have be using a combination of everything. The rear, front and bottom fans are hooked into the 630's fan hub and the H100i fans are using corsair links software and the side fan is plugged into the motherboard since the cable is not very long. Any advice would be greatly appreciated here.
Idle cpu temps have been around 26c to 31c and under load it is around 42c to 46c. The GPU temps idle around 26c to 32c and under load is around 46 to 55c but it has gone as high as 65c once. I'm a noob so I don't know if these temps are good or not but based on minimal research they should be OK.
Comments and suggestions are welcome, Cheers!
