Will Antec Case Fans Sufficiently Cool My Computer Parts?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
I plan to build a computer using these parts:

Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 ATX Mid Tower Ultimate Gamer Case
Antec HCG 620 Power Supply
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3
Intel Core i7-2600
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked 1024MB GDDR5
Corsair Dominator 8GB (2 x 4GB)
OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" 120GB SATA3
Western Digital Caviar Black 1000GB (1TB) SATA3 7200RPM
LG SATA DVD-Writer


Can the Antec Nine Hundred Two (http://store.antec.com/.../0-761345-15920-3.aspx) sufficiently cool the listed, factory-clocked/"Superclocked" computer parts using its included fans? If the Antec Nine Hundred Two cannot cool the parts, should I purchase a different case, or should I purchase additional fans?

If I need more fans to cool the computer parts, do I buy fans to mount above the parts to specifically cool them, or do I mount the fans on the Antec Nine Hundred Two?


I would appreciate any help or recommendations. I have not built a computer before, and I would like to turn the computer on without causing it to melt

Number one -

The included fans will would sufficiently for normal stock situations. If and when you begin to become and enthusiest and want to over clock or turn up voltages, you should most likely then look at purchasing more or higher CFM fans.

Number Two -

On each in individual component there are enough sensors to make things shut off so far before the computer or silicon would get to a melting point that there is realistically no reason to worry. I assume that you're going to be using the stock cooler on the processor, so that's been tested by intel to sufficiently work under normal stock usage. The case comes with 1 200mm fan, and 3 120mm fans; make sure you bring air IN the front and OUT the top and back! Otherwise you should be A-OKAY!

Good luck in your build, make sure to show us pictures when you're finished. Oh yea, welcome to OCN!

It will cool fine, the 902 is a decent case but it's terribly OVERPRICED. $130 Shipped for that case on Newegg.

For that money you can almost get an Antec Twelve Hundred (if that's the look you are going for) or a NZXT Phantom. If you are willing to get a full tower around that same price, anyway.

I don't know about the case, it's very dependent on taste, personally i wouldn't buy the Antec 900 just cause it has some obsolete features but don't let me stop you.

On the other hand i'd ask you to reconsider about buying an Antec PSU, not that they are bad but there are higher quality PSUs out there at a simillar price. I'd recommend brands like Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax (anything with >80% efficiency), also remember to buy the modular version as it will help you greatly with wire management regardless of the case you choose.

On the CPU and mobo, if you are ready to spend so much money on the CPU i hope you'll atleast buy the 2600K and not the plain 2600. As for the mobo, you should read the review and see if it's really what you want:
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/G...7A-UD4/13.html

From the conclusion, i quote
Quote:
Requires significantly more voltage at given clocks compared to other boards currently on the market
MOSFET cooling does not make proper contact with all MOSFETs
Limited drive connectivity compared to other products in the same price range
No provided accessory to take advantage of front USB 3.0 header
Four SATA cables, six SATA ports
@RAM i wouldn't recommend buying modules with tall heatsinks , you might regret it later when you notice problems with after market CPU coolers. Corsair has low profile RAM heatsinks, you should check them out. Remember to buy modules with 1.5 V.

@Video card: can't say anything wrong about EVGA, quite the contrary, go for it.

@Western Digital Caviar Black, i'd advise you not to buy it. Caviar Blacks are known to be noisey in moust cases, i should know, i have one. I heared good things about Samsung Sinpoint F3.

Also i'd def. recommend buying an aftermarket CPU cooler. If budget is tight get a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ or a Thermalright HR-02 Macho, depending on the budget. If you can spare more on this it'd be great since it will help you keep temps down as well as noise.

Or you could get a ver similar look with a standard Antec 900 - $99.99, free shipping, 30.00 MIR. Total cost - $69.99 Newegg Antec 900

Antec 902's are awesome for cooling. Just upgraded from one, but I actually downgraded at the same time. The 650D sucks for cooling.

Try to get it on Promo code & MIR for around 70$. Not worth anymore than that IMO.

Call it personal experience and take it for what you will, but I run 2x Western Digital WD10FALS Caviar Black 1TB drives in my rig. Together or separate they're less noisy than all other devices in there. Again, this is just personal experience; plus Western Digital is amazing with their warranty support should anything go wrong with the drive and so-forth. Western Digital comes highly recommended by myself based on personal experience.

I can't deny, it's personal experience for both those who had it good or bad. To get in touch for the overall feeling i'd advise reading the feedback from newegg, they seem sincere and many of them seem indeed happy (130 pages* atm):

Wow, you guys reply fast

Preferably, I want to buy parts from:
(In-store) http://www.canadacomputers.com/
(Online) http://www.newegg.ca/



Case - I have chosen to buy an Antec case because I have assumed the case would operate about as quietly as the impressively-silent, Antec Performance One cases operate. Should I buy the Antec Nine Hundred instead? Or can anyone specifically recommend a case that can quietly and sufficiently cool my parts?

...As for the mobo, you should read the review and see if it's really what you want:
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/G...7A-UD4/13.html
Motherboard - I had wanted to purchase the cheapest P67 motherboard that supports NVIDIA SLI. I had thought I should either buy the Gigabyte BA-P67A-UD4-B3 or the Asus P8P67 Pro (Rev.3.0). Searching through forum posts, I had concluded that both motherboards are great, and that I should buy the cheaper motherboard. Should I buy the Asus P8P67 Pro (Rev.3.0) instead?

RAM - I had wanted to purchase reliable, fast RAM. Can anyone specifically recommend alternatives?


HDD - I had chosen the "Western Digital Caviar Black 1000GB (1TB) SATA3 7200RPM" because I had thought it had been the best HDD available from the sites I have listed for its price. Should I buy Samsung Spinpoint F3 for the same price from Newegg.ca?


PSU - Can anyone recommend a better-bang-for-buck PSU from one of the sites I have listed?

Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 - Personally own it, NOT a bad case. However, it does suck for cable management.

Antec HCG 620 Power Supply - If you need a motherboard for SLI, and if it will be the 560 Ti - Snag a AX750

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 - Good mobo, keep it, or the other alternative would be Asus.

Intel Core i7-2600 - No. Get this for about 10$ more.. Core i7 2600k OR if your just going to be gaming, please do yourself a favor and get the Core i5 2500K

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked 1024MB GDDR5 - Good card

Corsair Dominator 8GB (2 x 4GB) - Your fine.

OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" 120GB SATA3 - Don't own a SSD, but make sure you get a warranty.

Western Digital Caviar Black 1000GB (1TB) SATA3 7200RPM - Own one, love it, and it's not loud at all. (Personal Experience.)

LG SATA DVD-Writer - Not a bad drive, I have the GH-24 model.

Corsair H60 This way you can use high-profile (Big heatsinks.) RAM and have room to cool your CPU if you don't have a cooler already.
