Hello Pcpartpicker community,
I would love to have your input on how I should configure my cooling on my rig I am building.
I am new to PC building so any input would be great.
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X61 106.1 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G1.SNIPER Z97 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 980 4GB STRIX Video Card
Case: NZXT H440 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
As it is now, I am thinking of putting the radiator on the top, and considering replacing the fan it comes with in the back with a corsair AF140 or AF120 in the back of the case.
However, I am not sure on which way to have the fans going for optimal airflow. Also, is a push/pull configuration viable?
Thanks for the input.
