You could also get a Corsair cooler and some Corsair fans in white to go with the Corsair PSU and case (and RAM).
I'd say go based on how you want it to look. Both will provide quality cooling.

Right now I have the top as an exhaust with the front and back as intakes and it works fine. I don't want anything accidentally falling through the top and shorting the board (probably a 1:10000000 chance) so I have it as an exhaust for slight peace of mind. I also don't have a GPU installed yet so I'll see how it works then.

if you are afraid of dust and things falling in, try picking up some black filter cloth. i found some at a local hardware store and made a filter for about 2 dollars cad tongue.gif

Thanks for the inputs, I guess I'll stick with the Noctua air cooler for now.

Though, still pretty stumped on the fan placements for the top at least. Originally, I was going to have 2 Noctua S12A FLX's in the front and one rear. Any significant difference with the P14's?

Would it be logical to run 2 intakes in the front, rear exhaust and one top exhaust then? Leaving one spot free on the top.

Hey all,

I would recommend 2 140mm front and and 2 120mm back/ rear top. My experience has been very positive with that set up both with reference style 780 and a Classy 780. That config should give you just the right amopunt of positive case pressure.

If you have a Dremel you could also do the case mod I did for the front 140mm fans.

Yea I was looking at the covers posted in this thread. I might just get my buddy to design a custom piece at his fibreglass shop.

I would think that leaves too much of an air leak.
Think of it like this, you puncture a water bottle with a needle and then squeeze the bottle, it will have an air leak but it would still build pressure. Now if you take the cap off the water bottle and squeeze it, there is such a big opening that no pressure is built up at all.

Wow, I just saw your build too on pcpartpicker. Pretty much identical! Seems like I could go through with your route if you didn't have any problems!

Yes, you are correct. I guess good AIRFLOW would be a better way of putting it.. rephrasing my post.

Ah yes... WOODY biggrin.gif

I will add that I did see a CPU temp increase with the Classy installed. About 5-8 C.

Enjoy your build Bro!!! cheers.gif
