This is my upcoming build I'm doing. Fret not, I've only bought the casing, dvd drive along with the CPU + mobo. I would like some opinion on the other things that might need some changes. This should be completed by end of June. The price I've calculated is actually $1440~~ish? cuz im from Singapore and shipping is not going easy for me.
Also for the airflow, I've planned intake from 1x230mm from bottom and 1x140mm from rear. for the exhaust would be 1x140mm at the top right next to the dvd drive.(cant put 2 fans on top also because of the dvd drive) Also because i wouldn't want so much air not entering the gpu if i'd put 2 fans at the top. thats the best kind of airflow i got planned. Any thing i should change on this plan.
Anyway anyhow do advise me on other parts that might need changes. Thanks guys.
(PS. this build is intended for family use hence the dvd drive just in case as well as for my gaming use. No intensive games playing. Only dota and dota 2. and maybe some horror games[which i so love] thats not available on console. eg. dreadout)
my mistake for already buying the M version of the prodigy should have just gone with the normal one. but harm is already done so i shall stick to it.
