Hope you guys can share insights and knowledge regarding my chosen parts, thank you. Here goes

CPU: i5-4670k (minor oc'ing: 4.0~4.2)
CPU cooler: Noctua NH-C14
Mobo: Asus Maximus Impact
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro (2x8gb) 1866 CL9
GPU: MSI R9 290 TF
SSD: Samsung Pro 128gb
PSU: Corsair AX 650 Watts

I won't buy HDD for now as I'm on short on budget.

If my researching is correct, I would have a 2mm clearance from Vengeance Pro to the bottom of bottom fan of NH-C14 and a 10mm roof clearance from top fan of NH-C14.


Swap to nvidia gpu and lower PSU wattage, for single gpu you roughly need 500W

PSU wattage degrades over time, plus you need to think about upgrades. It's always best to get a bit extra. I'm putting a AX760i in mine.

AHH

Really annoyed now!

Just finish putting my computer together and my corsair h100i is making a really annoying grind noise!

If i lay the case on the side it goes away!

I have the latest firmware and all that mad.gif

Anyone had this in their 250D case ??

Sounds like an old HDD clicking huh? I had that problem. It wasn't like that at first then I had an episode where my startup took 3 attempts, CPU temps were soaring high and the pump was 0 RPM. I fixed all that but from that point on I got that sound.

We're not the only one with this problem. It is annoying frown.gif

yeah this really sucks!

My pump is working fine and give me good temp results but this grinding noise is killing me...

And like i said, if i lay the case on the side, the noise is totally gone! thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

From what I've heard a lot of people have had that problem. The pump is apparently not designed to be sideways.
