Everything checks out on the website, like everything fits, and the power works out, but I just want to know if the fans will be strong enough. A big problem with my PC at the moment, is it sounds like a jet engine when it plays any half decent game, or renders anything at all.

Does the fan need to be more powerful? Should I get noise reduction?

Many thanks in advance.

A sendor maybe. Check all the temps when it happens and then look at what the cooling profile for your fan is (assuming you use some sort of fan speed program).

In my opinion, as a pc gamer building your own rig will give you a great satisfaction and you'll love it more. So buy the parts and build it yourself. Btw you wont have problems with the cooling with that specs but you can always get a better case.

I did that last time, and it had too many problems, such as blue-screening each time it starts up, and just being generally slow, so I don't really trust myself to put it together well... It was fun and rewarding though.

This is a site for PC builders and building, not people specifying machines from third party vendors. I fail to see how your thread is relevant.

You'd do better if you take that parts list and structure an actual PCPP saved parts list, and post like you actually want to build the thing. Technically it's lying, but in the end it'd be a bit of a victimless transgression of social mores so it wouldn't be that big a deal.

Also, doing that would prevent the problem you've created that your parts list is nearly impossible to read. No one wants to wade through that mass of all-caps and needless rows containing NONE.
