not sure if noiseblockers put out enough static pressure for rads. but then again, you wouldn't need much airflow with that much surface area. personally i'd take the $ you'd spend on all those noiseblockers (not exactly cheap biggrin.gif ) and invest in another big rad so you can simply run it passive. remember daisy chaining that much rad gives you a HUGE amount of cooling power just from the amount of liquid and surface area involved. water has a relatively high specific heat capacity and the amount of surface area you are dealing with is enough to cool down a small car biggrin.gif if you are willing to spend that much, I would say fanless is your best option. you may need to do some modding and mount those rads on the wall so people don't end up kicking/running into them biggrin.gif

We'll see what happens. I won't be cooling a lot, at most CPU, 1 GPU and MOBO. Fan pricing I'm not worried about, I can source them for cheap. But we'll have to wait and see. As for mounting, it's just going to be on the stands I will purchase as well, sitting next to the case. Will be protected by grills so no one can kick it or run head first into it tongue.gif

Hey guys, I'm thinking of building a new machine using this slick little case. I'm looking for input on my current wishlist. Take a look. I primarily will game with the machine. Thanks!

3570k is cheaper. Get that. What CPU cooler as well? Looks fine otherwise. Could probably just get the X-560 if you wanted. I doubt you'll be SLI'ing. Which also begs the question if you need a 4GB model.

Thanks for the input. I thought I had the 3570k on there instead. Fixed! As far as cooling I will be on air with an Ultra 120 Extreme, which has been lapped. The GPU just seems like a good one since I will not be doing SLI any time soon, too much of a pain in the ass. is 650w enough for the power supply? How about for SLI later on?

That PSU is plenty for 2 670s with an Ivy proc. Yes. =)

a HIGH quality one should be fine but which gpu are you gonna run? Last time I checked my system (2012 nerd box) games bf3 ultra at 350watts at the wall using a kill o watt meter to test.

quality wise, it doesn't get any higher then seasonic X for consumer PSU's biggrin.gif you might be able to get some server grade hot swap PSU that are better, but that'll cost you a few more bills then you are willing to pay biggrin.gif
