post #2961 of 11743
Guys I plan to build an ITX gaming rig and this is my build using pcpartpicker:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qS0P

I want to hear suggestions and I would make it a quiet build. I was thinking of using 2 Corsair SP120 High Performance Edition and tone them down to 7v for it is the lowest setting possible. Thoughts?

I think you might have problem to put Noctua NH-L12 on that motherboard.

Finally rebuilding, but after tidying up cables and such i find i have a big space and nothing to put there. Looks odd, any suggestions?



Note: internal drives are in with PSU and have have various acrylic sheets to fit covering PSU cage.

Well, any suggestions? I'm really limited on cpu coolers since only a few known brands are only being sold by local retailers here in our country.

@HuwSharpe

What fan are you using?

It's available on NewEgg for $43. us.NCIX.com also sells it, and probably some others.

What fan are you using?

Because of the version of the i5 you are going to be using, you will not need a very powerful cooler, even if you overclock the turbo boost by 400MHz for each value (which you an always do for non-K chips). Do you have Zalman coolers where you live? I had a very good experience with Zalman's CNPS9900MAX (in blue or red) with my i7 3770 at stock. It's very quiet up to 1000RPM and cools fine for stock values. That's faster than your i5, so your overclocked i5 would do well too. Photos here:

http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/4478110

I've swapped to a closed-loop cooler, as I run at 4.3GHz now and wanted to stay under 50C for that, but most of the photos in that profile are from my old set up with the Zalman cooler. It directed air toward the window and also radially out through the fins. Also front-to-back airflow with a large front intake fan and a 140mm exhaust fan.

Otherwise you could also try Noctua's 92mm fan coolers (there's a dual 92mm fan cooler, and a new small-sized cooler out -- sorry, can't recall model numbers at the moment). Those of us with ASRock and Gigabyte ITX motherboards are pretty limited in our options (though I wouldn't change my motherboard for anything! It's great).

I have 3 drives : 2 SSDs and a 2.5" HDD. I kinda like how they look, so I attached my Crucial m4 to the front of the PSU enclosure (with velcro strips), my HDD is on the "floor" between the PSU and the front intake fan (with rubber dampeners attached under it - actually the little black rubber things from Phanteks fans), and my second SSD is along the left panel, under the GPU. Doesn't look empty anymore, and I like being able to see all of my compoments arranged neatly.

Because my window is on the right-side panel, I have my 24-pin motherboard cables going through the left side hole from the PSU, leaving the front of the PSU enclosure bare for drive-mounting.

Phanteks PH-F140TS at the rear and Corsair SP120's at the top. Undecided which fans to use on the CPU cooler, or if any at all.

What CPU cooler is that and is that installed on the ASRock Z77E-ITX and what's the performance like on it? I've been looking for a CPU cooler that would fit that board but still allow for a PCI-E video card.

Looks like Noctua NH-U9B and it's on Asrock Z77E-ITX. Smaller CPU coolres with 92mm fan should fit on it.
