I fell down to the GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) abyss again. What started as something innocent and beautiful soon got out of hand after I went to 1440p. Here's my previous build: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/93JV3C
So last black friday I got an Asus MG279Q 144hz 1440p Freesync display although I had a GTX970 it was a great deal and still a 144hz IPS monitor.
A while ago I saw an R9 nano for 399€ (converted to USD and removing Finnish taxes it's about $357!!) so you might understand why it was a tempting deal. Way better 1440p performance than the GTX970 and the ability to use the freesync on my monitor -- h*ll yeah!
Then I decided that while the Cooltek U3 was a very cool case, it was a bit noisy and gathered dust really fast. Got a silverstone TJ08-ew to keep the small form factor.
Then I decided that my seasonic G-550 was too noisy with the nano (still can't figure out why). So I got an almost brand new secondhand EVGA 650W GQ which is semi-passive and very quiet under load.
Other things I've upgraded: -Noctua case fan -3TB WD red -16GB Kingston HyperX fury
The stock fan on the nano wasn't as quiet as I'd have liked and I found a mod that had been done on German tom's hardware to swap the fan. The bequiet silent wings 2 92mm is a perfect fit for the nano and I cut a shroud to control the airflow from the box the nano came in. The fan is now very quiet even at full ~1950 rpm and many degrees cooler than the stock fan at same noise level. I've also undervolted the nano so it stays cooler and 1000mhz most of the time.
Let's hope I can do with this setup for a while longer than my last ones :D
