Mini-ITX Prodigy Gaming Desktop - Page 3

I was going to go with the H80i, but I have to admit, I was a little scared of it leaking. I think I'll cut the Phanteks and go with the Hyper, and go with a 500GB HDD. That should save me $70 right there.

Well water is better, but seriously can't go wrong with saving money or the 212, I do like water and it is better but the 212 performs very well for the money. Any review will mostly praise it.

Another thing you can put that 70 dollars to better use in your pc elsewhere.

watchout for mobo/pci e compatibility when you use the 212 evo.

Antec can be good if you get the correct one. Not all of them have seasonic parts. But that seasonic link you sent (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095) Will work great.

I've used the Cooler Master 212 Heatsink on two different computer builds. A 2011 (i7-3820) socket and an Am3+ (8350) The max temp was 57C for the 3820 (Full load no OC) and 59C for the 8350 (Full load no OC) But if you're going to get the 212 order another 120mm fan it takes temps down 5-7C. The heatsink comes with extra brackets for an additional fan.

Yeah, the 212 is a nice little cooler. It was a pain in the ass the first time to put on, was my first non-stock cooler on my first build ever. Thanks for the temps too, how much do you think they'd be while OCing?
post #29 of 34
Sorry I totally missed that last question. I don't overclock so I have no idea what the temps would go to. :/ Sorry.

Hey guys.

Decided to go with this.

CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-L9i
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 8GB
PSU - Corsair HX650W
GPU - Gigabyte 7950

All came to about $1050.
