mATX build possibilities vs. Sager Laptop for college (becoming build log) - Page 5

post #41 of 74
I concur anything can blow a freaking laptop!

They are not meant for gaming! I know that now it's just 3 years too late after I spent it on a so called gaming laptop

Only thing you would have to change is motherboard to a mITX form factor and perhaps change the CPU since you can't overclock that much on the mITX just make sure it can take a graphics card

But I would stay with the mATX if it was me :S

btw TIM wise if you already have Shin etsu stay with that but if you have to go buy it just stay with the Noctua since its pretty good as well.
Well I guess my sig rig is going to stick with IC Diamond for the meantime... I wanted to reseat it cause I do not believe it is covering as much as it should. I guess if I have enough of Noctua's TIM left I can just use that.

As for eating laptops.... this rig did that as soon as I thought about it earlier today lol.

well it's a 4 grams tube I doubt you will use 4 grams of TIM on single CPU installation.

You know the Intel Ultimate N 6300 doesn't have bluetooth but the Advanced N 6230 has bluetooth right?

I have never used bluetooth and never plan on it. Plus it is just another way for people to enter your laptop as I love to do to people with Macs who leave it on all the time.... funny named alerts popping up ftw.

that MSI 560 Ti is better suited to go in the lian li case. since the fans would be pushing against the fans in the power supply in the silverstone, but in the lian li, the power supply will actually be helping it by sucking out the "exhaust" that comes out the sides of the card. so i think you may get better temps in the lian li.

Still can't make up my mind on a case. Down to either the Silverstone TJ08-e or a Lian Li case.

Decided to go on Lian Li's website just to browse around and came across the PC-V600F. Opinions? Would be getting the Black interior version as I hate that bare metal look. Quite expensive but I am going to look around for a better price. I am becoming in love with this case the more I look at it... but the price is like a giant mole sitting right in the middle of the chest.... UGH

Silverstone will hold the graphics card yet Silverstone rely on their Air penetrator to cool the whole thing you would be able to use the NH-D14 as a exhaust since fans these days are that powerful. There is exhaust vents in the motherboard tray for the graphics card plus the PCI slot's are vented it should be capable of cooling your graphics card.

The first Lian li will also hold the graphics card though you have to remove a hard drive cage. You will have support from the power supply fan to help assist with airflow again the NH-D14 would act as a exhaust for the case.

The second Lian li will also hold the graphics card and no need for removal of hard drive cage. The PSU can either be faced downwards or upwards but Lian Li definitely intended for downwards so the power supply was able to get cool air from the bottom.

Go look at reviews, videos and pictures and figure out which one fits your needs. It may be price it may be functionality or sheer awesomeness which 2 of them represent the two latter functionality and sheer awesomeness from lian li

Both Lian li is pretty roomy that's for sure. Maybe they have them in stores near you I would suggest go take a look and ask the store manager if you can have a closer look or if he had other suggestion in mind perhaps.

Personally I would never go with Lian Li too pricey :|

Just decided to go with the OEM version of Windows 7 which freed up $100. Looking around at small mid towers at the moment, still a bit large for this build. I wish I had somewhere local that stocked these models... I was looking around at local computer stores and none of them carry these. They seem to like the mid and full towers more.

There are no reviews on the Lian Li PC-V600F... it appears it was released earlier this month according to hardware news.
