thanks!!! thinking of h60 (2013) push/pull or phanteks tc12dx ...not sure why I can't make up my mind... the phanteks seems like a simple install for a newbie wink.gif .. but I like the less cluttered look of h60.. and has gotten good reviews... leaning air.. suggestions.. ( mild overclocking 3770k 4.2-4.5)

And I outlined the window with white electrical tape to hide the ugly holes.



Looks Good thumb.gif

Down 2 whole degrees at idle! Haven't tested under any significant load yet though. We'll see how it holds up tonight when I boot up Bioshock again smile.gif

wouldn't have guessed...at least from the pictures, it actually looks pretty good with the white over your black case

really want to see where other people take this idea - i'd love to have a clean window on my case but i don't want to suffocate the gpu

OP is up to date, and I am probably going to have to hand this thread off soon. Other obligations coming up on the forum front.

Okay I bit the built and for my third IXT build I am going with a Prodigy. I am debated right now if I want dual 120 fans for the front or a single large fan. I am considering one of the Bitfenix large fans but wanted to know about noise, Will I need to step down the power or is it at full quiet? With the dual 120mm fans I can use PWM and speed control them.

It's similar, isn't it?

Ready to hit checkout on a few sites... This is my first build in over 9 years... so I am essentially a newbie all over. Would love it if anyone could pick out anything that stands out as something that could potentially give me issues. I know a mid tower will be easier to work in.. but I love the small form and I don't have a lot of space in my work area. I have been inspired by so many builds on this site.This will be my only rig for gaming , little bit of work ( office etc.. ) basic stuff... small bit of audio editing.. anyways here we go

Bitfenix Prodigy arctic white
Intel 3770k
Asus p8z77-i deluxe/wd
Corsair h850 BRONZE version... fry's has it for 84$!! this is the seasonic version that was replaced by the "chirping" flawed gold one.. I wanted 150mm depth .. I was going to get the seasonic G650
Phantek ph-tc12dx Black version OR corsair h60 v.2 need help with this..
Kingston 8 gb genesis 1600 ddr3
Samsung 840 pro 256
Seagate 1 TB 64mb
230mm spectre pro all White blue led (front intake)
140mm bitfenix spetre pro all white blue led (rear exhaust)

undecided.. probably a GTX 680.. would love a titan wink.gif.. not sure if I can have a rational discussion with my wife about that.... ha .. so 680 or maybe I''ll downshift to 660ti I should probably give more thought to amd too ..
should I put a fan as exhaust or intake on top?... I will be keeping the blu ray drive from my old system.. I still need it for another 6 months or so.. probably get recon fan controller later on..

I'd like to try some mild - moderate overclocking.. but I don't want a super loud system... quiet and cool .. but with the ability to crank it up for gaming as needed... I will probably upgrade my monitor.. but the 27inch 2560x1440 monitors are still too pricey.. would like to wait another 18 months till there are more options.. so a good 24 inch monitor with decent input lag is what I will do for now... love all the info on this forum.. really inspiring RT

Not sure if the CPU cooler works, but the rest of it does..just look at the OP to make sure your PSU will fit...
