I agree, a 128GB SSD is not a stretch and is plenty for an OS drive an a few programs. Also, an i5 + R9 290 or 280X should be within budget.
With fan speed at like 30%? once you get two you are going to need to crank up the fan speed to 90-100% when under full load to keep them cool.
If you are running 2 x 980s, the case is the last thing you need to worry about being silent. Those 980s are going to be much louder than anything else.
Any reasoning for an ITX case? Did you just want it small? I love Corsair cases, but they tend to be a little over priced. If you are set on an ITX case, you could go with a Thermaltake Core V1, I think it looks beautiful. If you are open to M-ATX I would suggest the Cougar MX300.Also, no need for a cooler, the stock cooling is enough for non-overclocking.Keep the faster RAM, 1866 or 2133 would be best, Minecraft is heavily CPU dependent, if you want to max out view...
Here are a couple of builds: [[SPOILER]] [[SPOILER]] In the last two you have more breathing room, but all will require upfront costs because the rely on MIRs. with the more breathing room, you can grab a better cooler like the D14, a bigger HDD, or a different case like you wanted. Personally, I think that Cougar case looks pretty nice
The compression fittings need to match or they wont fit. It looks like yours match. The plug you chose for your draining is the correct size, but you may want to increase it a little bit so that the tubing is snug. Both should work, but make sure you get a clamp for it to avoid spillage.Also, why the GPU slot connectors? you only have 2 GPUS, why do you have 2 slot connectors, you should only need 1.You should be able to get one of these...
This is not BS, it is facts, you are spreading "BS" on the requirement of 16GB of RAM and a dedicated GPU for an office build and on top of that stating that you were over 7GB of RAM usage with just your browser "last week" I tried to get my browser to utilize 4GB+. I really did, I had 50 tabs of youtube open, I will repeat, FIFTY! I could not get it over 3GB.As far as me creating a build, the OP has an amazing build in the first post, I suggested that he get a smaller...
What kind of tabs do you have open? 100+ tabs of Youtube and social media? I just opened 50 x Youtube tabs in chrome. It increased my ram usage by less than 3GB.I turn off my swap file on all my machines or move it to the HDD. People have settled on 8GB because it is more than enough for 90% of scenariosI feel like you are just grasping at straws now. I have been running converters on plenty machines for 5+ years and have had no problems. I have actually yet to see a...
Compression filters need to match the tubing you pick. Where as the barbs you want to be a little bigger so that they are snug. If you want some sort of middle between thick and thin, I would go with 1/2" ID tubing. It generally does not kink and will still look good.
It all depends on what you want. thicker tubing is easier to work with, and causes less kinks, thinner tubing causes more kinks, but in my opinion, looks better. For fittings, I would go with compression fittings if you can afford them. They are very easy to use and make the build looks clean.Also, RAM cooling block is not really needed, unless it's just for fun. And for water, you should just use normal distilled with a silver kill coil.
