Thread Starter 
Hello!


So, I am building new computer mainly for gaming with 2560x1440 resolution.And I want that the computer is based on nvidia/Intel. These parts is gonna be moved to Ncase m1 when it arrives.


RAM: SNIPER 8GB G.Skill DDR3 1600.

HDD: WD BLUE 1tb.

GPU: Gigabyte/evga reference 780.

Motherboard: Asus z87i pro or Asus impact VI.

Cooler: Corsair h60 or something like small air cooler, I will replace it with Swiftech h220 or Corsair h100i when I get ncase m1.

Cpu: i5 4670k/ i7 4770k is i7 4770k worth getting if gaming is main object?

PSU: Silverstone sfx 450w gold

SDD: samsung ssd 840 pro

And pp05 short cable kit

Will these parts fit on node 304? How is the temperatures? Help greatly appreciate!

How long until your permanent case arrives? Seems like it would be a better idea to wait and build the PC once with a single set of parts.

Heyo!

Something like 2-3months, but I know that the parts will fit on the ncase m1 I will just replace the cpu cooler to better one, I just need clarification that does these parts fit on node 304.

NCase N1 is going to be awhile theonedub - I don't think production campaign has even started on it.

That being said Forumh3ro - you took all the hard work out of using the Node 304 by going with an SFX PSU, you will have no problems fitting that gear into the Node 304.

As far as your CPU, get the best you can afford and are willing to spend money on... what's "worth it" to one person might not be worth it to you.

If you're playing at the resolution you stated and are playing some MMOs and perhaps some larger FPS titles like BF3-4 I'd say more threads will help so you'd possibly see some gains by going from an i5 to an i7. You have to take that and justify the fact that going from i5 to i7 is going to net you maybe ~10-15fps gain and for that you'll have to shell out X amount more dollars.

In my opinion you'd get more bang for your buck throwing that extra cash into your GPU because at that resolution on a single card you're going to run into situations where you'll have to turn down the graphics details.

Good luck and welcome to OCN.

Ah, I see.

Well I can confirm that the parts will fit. I've used similar parts (and some larger parts) in different configurations of my Node and didn't run into problems. Temps will be fine especially if you draw air in through the back into the H60. The GPU will get fresh air from the side vent. The only downside to the side vent is that any noise the GPU fan makes will be pretty unobstructed. I have a ref 780 in my main PC and its not too noisy, so its probably not a real big concern for you.

Thanks for the help!


If i7 4770k really gives me like 10-15fps decrease, to me it's really worth of 100e in german price between i5 4670k and i7 4770k is 100e.


The cooler is the last thing that I am missing what cooler would be good? I wont overclock I just want that it's quiet and keeps things cool and not that expensive something like max 60e?


Btw, is there any difference between gtx 780 reference cards?

Seeing as you're picking up either of the newer z87 asus itx boards I believe just about any tower cooler under 165mm in height will fit in the node 304 and onto your motherboard - although I would canvas the motherboard forums for a specific answer on tower cooler fitment as far as the board goes.

I will recommend a tower cooler over a closed loop cooler, it'll be much quieter, no maintenance and low temps.

I'm using a TPC-812 although Noctua and Xigmatech (Loki) also have coolers that have a pretty good following, also you could do a Hyper 212+ or Evo and get good temps as well.

I would suggest keeping the stock airflow configuration in the node 304, otherwise you'll get a ton of dust in the case - if you must make the rear an intake than make sure you buy filters for the rear 140mm.

Heyo!


I was thinking that is there any mitx case that will fit h220? So when my permanent case arrives I only need to switch my case Would Bitfenix prodigy fit h220 without any modding?
