Sexy Cooler +1

Nice build, how is that CPU cooler? I don't see it very often.

I'm happy with it.

Idle it's around 30 degrees Celsius and on load (prime95) the CPUTIN hovers around 58 degrees Celsius. Reported "package" temp. on the FX-8350 is 37 degrees Celsius (HWMonitor)

TechPowerUp has a review on it, http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/beQuiet/DarkRockPro2/6.html, and gave it a 9.6 score. I do follow their opinion, even with the Vengeance LP the clearance is virtually nonexistent (but just enough so you can take the closest RAM module out), it's big, really BIG and installation was not that easy because of its size.

But during normal operation, the only noise I hear is from the graphics card, the CPU cooler is almost inaudible and from my experience and the TPU test, it manages to keep everything cool.

Very nice rig but I feel like you paid too much for your RAM and storage?

I had the storage devices already (except for the SSD). Motherboard, RAM and CPU were part of an "upgrade" deal I got from a store here in Belgium (Alternate) for 329 euros (394 USD)

So the "where" portion of both of my builds is invalid

Hey man, just wondering how you got the cooler to mount in that orientation? Im about to return mine because the mounting position has it pushing air flow up instead of towards the upper rear exhaust fan as i thought it should be. thanks in advance.

I have the white version of the Define R4, love how slick your's looks, makes me want to get the black version.

What kind of video card do you have in there? I don't see it listed in your parts list.

It's the Gigabyte GV-R583UD-1GD (Radeon HD 5830)
