Hmm, persuasive argument you make. I will work on adding the Fractal Node variations to the thread thumb.gif

Depends on what components you are putting in it.

Long graphics cards will limit your choices significantly (unless you forgo the PSU bracket).

If a long gpu isn't going in then any standard ATX PSU will work

Fractal are by far my fav cases, well thought out.

Work builds, building a data server, raid blah blah. White one is a i5 data cruncher /HD copier, black one will be a RAID data server, NAS offsite backup.

I have corsair cx600m and i can fit a long grafics card. Some uses seasonics moduler psu because they have the contacts at the bottom of the psu. If you have a corsair moduler psu it may need to be 140 mm in length to fit a long grafics card. If you choose a Seasonic psu you may fit a longer then 140 mm.

I've been trying to search through this thread, but it's "yuge", and I'm also finding some conflicting answers...
What's the general consensus in regards to GPU blower style fans vs open air in this case? I want to have both quietness and overclocking ability (as everyone here rolleyes.gif ) but if I had to prioritize it would be silence before speed.

I'm planning on going for a GTX1070, a i5 6600k with a Hyper 212 Evo and only one SSD. Edit: And the Cooler Master V550.

Btw, I'm also buying a Asus Z170i Pro Gaming. Will Kingston Hyper FuryX DDR4 ram fit with the rest of the build or do I need something lower profile's?

Hi,

I went from an open-air style GTX670 from Asus (with the DCU2 cooler) to a reference GTX980 some time ago.
I noticed a slight decrease from 2 to 5 degrees on the CPU, it doesn't really make a big difference.
Even more so now with energy-efficient CPUs and GPUs, you'll be fine with an open-air cooler.

I wouldn't bother with high-profile ram. It might fit today, but if you want to change your cooler/mobo or any other part in the future, it might be conflicting. Just go for standard or low-profile RAM.

Hope it helps!

Thanks, Mr. Saget! thumb.gif This was exactly the information I needed!
Now I just have to wait for the 3rd party GTX1070's to start appearing in the online stores. I've heard good things about MSI in regards to silence and overclocking so that might be the way to go...

Also, as far as I can see, these sticks will fit now and for any future builds: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4 PC24000/3000MHz CL15 2x8GB.
