Yep! i've got the front blowing in, top and back out. with how open this case is, airflow hasn't really been an issue
Fact :p but I do intend on getting a 4570k
Thank you! I tried to get the best parts I could for the overall price.
As far as "cheap" PSU's go, it's either Corsair CX, or EVGA in the 80+ Bronze it seems, neither of them should burn up. You DO have to be careful about pushing them too close to the rated wattage but none of my builds (so far) come very close :)
I ABSOLUTELY agree! Could have easily gone with a regular 2.5" 256 gb SSD, 8 gig of ram, 4tb Green drive, cheaper Mobo, and gotten a 960 or a 280x for cheaper overall...
I'm not even mad. Just very, very confused. And wondering what year it is!!
I think.. I think it is?!
haha and that whole large boost in start/speed never hurts :P
Thanks! I wanted to do all of my burn/stress testes before i made it look all nice and pretty just incase i had to rip something out :P Mine didn't come with any special SSD sled or anything, all i did was use one of the 3.5 drive bays and a single screw to mount it in there
Thanks! the case is pretty decent for what you pay for it at least! (around $30 normally)
Its not that i'm dissing the Greens, its that the blues are much better for the same or slightly more
I'm just finishing testing on my OC, 4.7 was easy but higher temps that I like (75C avg) but 4.5 you're looking at like 462C avg :)
I think I'm in love. Only thing I'd add would be a baby SSD To load the OS on. Otherwise it's absolutely beautiful
So this is what I'm seeing.. You bought your processor at micro center but didn't combo it with a mobo, ram or Samsung SSD a to save like $70 bucks? You don't need liquid cooling, a $200 mobo, 16 gigs of ram...you should be able to OC that beautiful pentium to 4.6 at 1.3V or so, why put all the extra stress for .2 more? Seems like a lot of inefficient spending to get the maximum bang for your buck.

I just completed my build and that little pentium is AWESOME. Stable easy OC to 4.5-4.7 (with an aftermarket cooler like the 212) pair that with a 660 or something you can get for decent price and you've got a killer little machine
Just don't. They aren't nearly as good as a blue or a black (greens are variable speed, aiming to save power)
