Description

All the parts work well. My plan was to build a strong and silent Gaming Computer. It was not easy to build this into a small case because the graphics card and radiador are big parts.


Problems: *heat and some drivers


Q:Are you going to overclock? A:I do not need because this is already a powerful PC Q:how quiet computer is this? A: Standard 41db and Asus AI Suite silent mode enabled 38db (This turns off the 2 Fans) Q: what about the start-up speed? A: it takes 7 seconds to go the desktop

Nice parts, may want to think about upgrading to at least a roomy mid tower case though. Not that anyone would be looking in that thing but you, but a nice mid-tower would make your rig look much cleaner

Cool build! You should really consider tidying up your case (cable management is pretty crap) because it will improve airflow. +1

Dude... you need to get a bigger case. That cable management is atrocious. I would suggest the Fractal R5 or possibly the NZXT H440. Both are excellent silent cases, but I would suggest going with the R5 if you were going to upgrade your case, as it has superior air flow in my experiences. Nonetheless, great build +1

That's the downside of using the Prodigy M. It's so damn compact that it looks terrible on the inside. I used it on my first build http://pcpartpicker.com/b/6GycCJ

Yeah it's kind of a shame too. It's a really good looking case!

I do not care what it looks like inside as long as it works :)

Cable management important or useful in a small case?

It keeps things from overheating

Is the 230 mm supposed to be exhaust?

FPSUsername 1 point 29 months ago

Sorry mate, but it looks very bad. The cpu rad and gpu work both in different directions, This will cause that the fans will blow harder. You could do this: Blow air through the rad into the gpu and use the 230mm as exhaust at the bottom. Just flip the case and you will have better airflow. The gpu will get a bit hotter, but as long as the 230mm does it job well, the gpu won't over heat.
