will this build work?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
trying to do a cheap quiet games machine. I bought it all on amazon for simplicity. The case cover will require some cutting, but I hope not too much.

I'm planning to run the CPU fanless and put the cooler on the gpu via red mod. the plan is to put the h80i in front pointing forward, and the rear fan pointing out as well. All air will come in from the side. This means I have to cut a hole big enough for the entire cooler. then put some kind of grate and air filter on it.

Most MSI mobo are crap on AMD side. Don't get it.
You need a 6+1 power phase or better for that that FX-8530.

I don;t disagree but it was the only min atx available. CPU is an 8350. It should be on there. Won;t get a giant ton of over clock out of it of course. If worse comes to worse i could mount a 240mm fan on the cooler as well. Would stick out a bit so there would be more building involved. Do they even make 240mm pwm?

Sure hope you mean your just using the stock cooler. Though if your looking for quite I would still recommend getting an after market air cooler as you can get one that will be quieter than the stock.

But it should work if you don't plan on overclocking at all.

Even at stock speed. He is going to need a very very very big CPU cooler for a fanless cooler. FX-8350 is know to hit around 180 watts at stock speed.

LOL!!! I don't buy MSI for an AMD build.
Your best bet to get a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 for a good mATX mobo for an FX chip.

well why the heck didn;t that come up in my search?

the big question is do you think the airflow will work?


Oh! I know what the deal is! I wanted usb 3 and 1866 memory. The msi is the only one that can do it. What is wrong with MSI btw?
