i5-3570k build for Solidworks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just wrapped up this build and need some feedback from those with the experience.

This is a LianLi case all black, all Aluminum. 2 x 140mm in the front for intake, 1 x 120 on the top for intake, dual 120 for the rad for exhaust.

Do you guys think the PSU should be picking up fresh air from below, or from within the case component area?

I put the rad setup on the outside to test and compare. Logic is that external case temps should be lower making for better cooling. Your thoughts?

This build log is going to be a compare and contrast on a "budget" build I just did with the same i5-3570K. I used the stock thermal paste that was on the Thermaltake water 2.0 cpu block on this GD65A build and it is idling in bios at 44c! WTH. Upping the fan speeds didn't do any good either. I'll be switching the TP over to the Arctic silver that I used on the G41 budget build. That one idles at 26c. I hope I didn't get a bum proc.
