Also, if you want a cheap cooler to use in the meantime that's better than stock, you could grab a Cooler master Hyper 212+ or really any of its variants. That should take your 3570k to a 4.4ghz OC for around $25


I see. Yeah, I have a FM123 fan sitting around here gonna mount it on the rear. I don't plan to overclock while I'm using the stock hsf, well let's see if my budget permits.

What motherboard are you using? I believe most mATX motherboards support dual cards. Although I don't know if a single 180mm rad plus the 120mm rad would be enough cooling for two GPU's and the CPU, etc.

180mm fan upfront allows for more airflow per decibal. you would need 2 screaming 120's to make up for the same airflow of the 180 on 'high'. the 180mm fan is quieter (on low) than my old HAF case which uses 230mm fans at a lower RPM. Now if you really must have this case silent, you get buy the phobya 180mm fan.LINK I had 2 of those in a push pull for liquid cooling and it worked well enough.
if you remove the harddrive cage...you can put virtually any cooler in this case. so...I would recommend mounting the SSD on the bottom of the case (or somewhere else clever), put your harddrive in the bottom most mounting slot (without having the cage attached), and get a cooler you can be proud of.
the upside of the AP181 is that it creates positive pressure...what that means to you, the fan pushes enough air to leave through every vent hole (there is no air flowing in through the vents). with an additional 120mm fan would just pull the heat out from the CPU heatsink rather then letting more of it exhaust through your power supply.
the stock fan (for the heatsink I assume), will have no effect on the air flow of the case. that AP181 will ignore that little waste of a fan, and the performance of that little thing is laughable (please replace it). Also, if you want it quiet...stock heatsinks are little screamers. just FYI. I cant stand them.
Now, although you dont plan on using it for gaming. Are you getting a videocard? or going integrated? if you go integrated then you can get a large heatsink with a 140mm fan which are very very quiet such as the following:
DH14
HE01
CNPS14X
TC14PE
and even if you get a video card, putting some electrical tape between the heatsink and the videocard will stop shorts. or you can buy a videocard with a backplate and no electrical tape required.
P.S. overclockers overclock typically for folding at home, for doing computations faster for work, and/or bragging rights. Gamers typically keep everything stock because an i5 will chew through any game at max settings so for gaming overclocking has minimal benefits. just to make you more learnered.
P.S.S. welcome to OCN.

I realise that this post was written some 2 months ago but I cannot see why this should happen : "rather then letting more of it [Heat] exhaust through your power supply." Is this based upon the Power supply fan facing downwards ?

Wait wait

I need a way to cool down my 7870's because the primary card sounds like a jet engine during games. I dont wanna do water cooling.

My planned "cool and quiet" non-gaming build:
  • Silverstone TJ08-E or PS07 case
  • Seasonic SS-400FL 400W fanless 80 plus gold
  • Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H (no overclocking)
  • Intel i7-3770S (65W TDP)
  • CPU cooler (still looking)
  • 8GB RAM (2x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR3 1600 (8-8-8-24)
  • no video card (using the integrated HD 4000 graphics)
  • Plextor M3 128GB SSD drive (boot drive, Windows 7)
  • 3.5" hard drive
  • optical drive (in top 5.25" external bay)
  • 3.5" card reader (in TJ08-E lower bay, or in PS07 second 5.25" bay)

With its external 3.5" bay for the card reader, the TJ08-B is a tempting choice. But some reviews say:
  • the 180mm fan is somewhat noisy (and there are few aftermarket 180mm options)
  • the 180mm fan makes a clicking sound even at low speeds
  • the case is prone to vibration from a hard drive
If these issues arise in my build, I'd need to swap out the 180mm fan for a quieter one (or a 140mm fan, for which there are more options), and I'd need to mount the hard drive in the second 5.25" bay (on the theory there would be more damping choices in a large bay). The SSD would go in the hard drive cage.
Alternatively, I could go with the PS07, install the card reader in the second 5.25" bay, and install the hard drive in either the hard drive cage or the lower 3.5" cage, whichever produces less vibration. If the two 120mm fans are noisy, there are lots of aftermarket options.
Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
(thanks again to squishysquishy and saran008 for their prior input)

I have this case just a couple of late comments re.your above list :

I are happy to report that I have none of those problems

A seagate 7200:14 1 TB Hardrive is fitted in the bottom bay under the main cage and there is Zero HDD vibration.
The drive is so quiet I would not know there was one fitted. I was careful not to tighten the retaining screws too much. I loosened the screws under the lower drive cage before tightening the HDD screws. That allowed the sides of the cage to freely move and pull slightly inward for the HDD to just sit against the rubber lining - I tightened the screws until they just stopped and another few MM extra ,all that was needed to securely hold with the serated lock screws without any movement or distortion. Finally, retightened the lower cage screws from under the chassis.

I first took the cage out to fit the drive... but realised that tightening in this manner will simply pull the cage sides inwards, distort the cage, overtighten the HDD and ensure that it is too narrow to re fit in position.

I have noted the odd comment re. clicking front fan but can report Zero clicking. I have tested the fan in fan Expert up to full speed several times without any clicking. The only problem I had, were slow speeds - instead of 700/1200 RPM speeds on Low/High respectively it was recording 330-350 / 850 -900 with the fan connected to MB Fan 2 position. As it is not a PWM fan, I suspect that it could have been cured by connecting directly via a Molex to the PSU. However, I merely changed the setting in fan expert from Standard to USER and set it to a higher percentage so that it now runs at 750-775 on low and find the noise acceptable. It seems it could have been adjusted to almost exactly 700 RPM on low speed if desired.

After a few weeks with this case I would not swap it for any other.

My Spec is quite simple:


ASUS P877M-PRO
I5 3570K
Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo + artic silver 5
Deepcool U120 PWM 500-1500 RPM Rear case fan
Seasonic X660
Kingston KHX1600 LoVo 1.35 Volt memory
Saphire Vapor-X HD 6850
Samsung SH B123A Blu Ray Combo Drive
HP 2511x
