That's really nice. I think thiania really good. My TS3 and Minecraft Server topped at 90% and runs in average on 10% i think, with a i5-2400

Nice Build +1 A: why did your PC cost 2000$? B: I bought 100 noctua fans...

Really nice Build, i really see a trend to noctua in SFF builds...

Really nice. I like getting older hardware and running a small home server on it. (TeamSpeak, Ark, Minecraft,...) How does this one run Ark, i don't really know how hungry an Ark server is.

I really love Noctua coolers for their performance, and 25€ for a C12P is great. I think this one isn't made anymore.

Whats that on top of the case? Oh, nothing, just a D15 sitting there...

75°C shouldn't be a problem for your CPU, open CoreTemp and it should tell you the tjmax(the maximum safe temperature) of this CPU, I think for the i7-4770k said something around the 100°C. I say as long as it doesn't throttle it is safe... Just keep in mind, the cooler it runs, the longer you can expect it to live. If you pla to upgrade in two or three years anyway, use it like a heater for your room.

Nice Build +1

Thats what I thought. Just be careful, that you don't scratch the radiator. And give the paint some time to completely dry.

Really nice Build! I like, what you did with these tubes. You can take the plastic parts off you radiator to paint them white if, but make sure, that you wipe them before trying to paint them. If you mind that the "corsair" text on the pump is upside down, you can also take it off and paint it white, with the corsair software you can switch the color of the LED.

For an air cooler you could look at the Noctua U12 or U14 They could give you some headroom for overclocking

Nice Build! The Define R5 is a really nice case to work with. A lot of space for cable management and plenty of clearance for a big CPU cooler like the U14. Where did you put the extra Fan? In the front? Also where in Europe do you live? I see that the prices here in Europe are higher than in the US. I also hooe, that you plugged in your PSU while you grounded yourself to your Case. Otherwise itere could still be some electrostatic discharge. Also you don't really need to worry about ESD. I have been building computers for some years now (without the bracelet) and I did never have any Problems with ESD. Also consider replacing the Fractal Design Fans with Noctua ones, the price is a little bit higher, but from my experience they are a little more silent. +1

Nice Build, I think the first one I see in this case. Why did you choose a blower style GPU over one like the giganyte wimdoforce? I think those get a little warmer than the ones with a beefier cooler. Also I see a hell lot of HDDs

Holy sh**, i just watched the pictures in a dark room and i freaked out. Didn't watch a horror movie that scary in a long time.

Jokes aside, the cable management can be improved. Try routing some of your cables behind the motherboard tray. I tell you, you will like the looks much better than with the actual cable management. Also get some LEDs even white LED stripes will do.

If you are gaming the performance difference between one or two sticks of RAM is not significant. If you are on a budget you should go with a single stick of RAM, it (mostly) keeps you a few bucks and you can add another stick if you need more or you can get it on the cheap.

Also nice build!

Nice. Overclocking isn't that complicated. Just enter the bios and dial up the multiplier. Most Intel CPUs can reach a reasonable overclock without any extra voltage. 4.4GHz should be no problem.

Nice build! Nice cable management! But I have to ask, where did you put the HDD? I really like the looks of a lets say basic PC without an AIO. You are right, the noctua U12S sure isn't as loud as an AIO. And if you don't do to much overclocking it will be fine. If it isn't enough you could always switch to maybe a D15 and you don't need to switch more than the cooler itself, the mounting mechanism stays the same (maybe you have to turn the parts where you screw it on, or you keep it turned by 90°, which would help with the natural air flow). +1

If it is solid wood, you shouldn't have any problems drilling into it. Just make sure you don't drill to deep. Also make sure your screws aren't to long.

Oh, thata why. I think 10 bucks isn't a bad difference. I was just wondering, why you use a K-CPU with non OC mobo and a pretty good cooler. I guess the cooler is for noise prevention?

Nice specs, but i will have nightmares from your cable management. If your PC isn't standing on a carpet, flip that PSU around and route your cables behind that Motherboard tray.

If you look on the gigabyte website, you can see that the windforce has 2 fans. The g1 has three fans, maybe there was a mistake on newegg with the pics. The 970 windforce had 3 fans and almost the exact same cooler and the same pcb as the 970 g1. I owned both of then, the difference on the cooler were the LEDs. Also my windforce whitch I bought right after release had a asic quality of 79% (according to GPU-Z) and the g1 which i bought a year later for SLI had a asic quality of 59%. Maybe the 1070 windforce and g1 are mire different to justify the price difference.

Nice build, just try to improve your cable management. It doesn't help with Performance or temps, but it will look a lot nicer. Try to route your cables behind your Mainboard tray.

Great build! +1 I think this is the first build i see on PC Part Picker that is using noctua NF-A14s. They are very good fans and better than the standard corsair fans on the AIO. But why do you have them set as intake on the top, is the top filtered? Flipping those fans around would support the natural flow of the air. But probably also create negative pressure in your case, so i guess there is a downside to both configurations. You could get some magnetic fan filters for the top, then you would pull in cool, filtered air and i had nothing to recommend.
Would the h115 fit in the front of the case? This would also be an alternative.

  • 39 months ago

Nice build, i could recommend using noctua nf-a14 or nf-f12 PWM fans. You could also. Use a biggee CPU cooler like the dark rock pro 3 or a noctua d15. Your case doesn' have a window onnthe side, so i recommend the standard noctua fans, their brown color might be a turndown for builds with windowed side panels but without a window i don't see a problem. But be aware, once you choose silence, there is no way back. You will be anoyed by the slightest noise of your PC

People keep using this one phrase "overkill" i fon't reallx know what this means, i only know "future proof". No pc will ever be "overkill". This out the way, nice build! Very clean. The only thing i could suggest are sleeved cables. Just for the 24pin and the PCIe power cables. +1

There are some good low profile coolers, noctua for example has one, that isnt much higher than the boxed cooler. I dind't think the 950 gets so hot.

  • 39 months ago

Maybe you could add an aftermarket cpu cooler, there are some goot options for that case. The i3 won't need a big one, but the boxed heatsink is... Well just boxed. Aftermarked solutiona come with better fans, so maybe look into one. I bet you cant hear that GPU cooler? Do the fans even start spinning? As i know, the 950 produces nearly no heat. Also to free up aome space, you could have used a SFX powersupply.

But overall nice build! +1

First the second 970 seemed like a good idea, because I already had one. The second one was much cheaper than the 980ti, and at the point i could afford the 980ti i got that one.

Nice build, i like the color sceme. +1

Good choice getting 1 980ti instead of 2 970s, i was running a 970sli setup last summer. The produced a lot of heat. Due to the high temperatures outside plus the heat of the 970s in my room I was constantly sweating while gaming. Later i got a 980ti and it performs almost the same, just a little better in non sli optimized titles. This summer we had similar tempa outside as last year, and i think it is a little cooler inside because of the lower tdp of 1 980ti vompared to 1 970s. Good choice, i found out the hard way.
