I have read that 140mm height psu's are usually used to fit 267mm gpu's with ease in this case, but I was wondering if you can do the same with a 150mm psu with a 267mm gpu. I know the silverstone 500 sfx-l is 130mm which is just extremely easy to fit but i need to know about 150mm with full gpu length. I know 100% 140mm is as easy as 130mm psu's but no idea about 150mm (5.91").


I wanted to buy the evga 550w or 650w GS tier 1 psu for this build but I also want to be able to fit a 267mm just like you have.
Can you possibly do me a favor and measure the maximum height psu you can have with a 267mm card installed inside?
I would seriously appreciate it SO MUCH!

THANKS! appreciate it!

I don't have any particularly accurate means to measure. I can tell you that the max height for comfortable routing is about 14cm with a 267mm GPU. 15cm MIGHT fit, but if the psu is modular, the connectors will add height. You have realistically about 5mm between the bottom of the GPU and a 15cm psu. I personally use a silver stone SFX 600W psu because it's super small and has adequate room for my long and not very flexible cables. As a bonus, it's gold efficiency too.

Bought a $160 CAD PSU.
Cooler Master V650W fully modular PSU. Newly released. It's 140mm.

I didn't want to buy the silverstone 500w sfx-l because it doesn't have good reviews.
A-lot of complaints about coil whine and fan noise etc ..

I'll be completely fine with the 140mm (it'll add some height due to modular cables) with a 267mm gpu right?

Hey guys i finished my build & there's 1 problem.
The 3.5" hdd i put in the bracket at the top .... every-time i use it or every-time it loads it makes a terrible sound.
Nothing else in my system is making any kind of sound except that 3.5" hdd.
Did i do something wrong? Should i check something?
It literally makes a-lot of noise when it's used/loading.

Thanks

Isolate that drive. Pull it out and run it outside the case and see if the drive makes noise.

Also facing another major problem.
My gtx 770 fan's on full blast but on every single gpu fan controlling software it shows that it's only on 10-20%.
I tried lowering it to 0 rpm & still it's running on full blast.

Is this a motherboard issue?
How can I fix it?
Thanks.

MSI afterburner stats:
gpu temp: 45 Celsius
gpu usage: 0%
fan speed: 28% -- 0 rpm

Tried setting it at 100% fan speed and 0% fan speed, but it just spins at the same rpm which I have no idea what it is because the software's cannot seem to interact with it and are showing false information.

Intending to buy the Raijintek Metis in a few months time. I'm going to cut three circular 120mm holes in the case, two on top, one in the bottom.

What kind of fan thickness will fit on top with a GTX970 Mini? Regular 25mm? I would be okay with Slipstreams or the like.
I assume there will be no problems fitting any fan on the bottom (CPU cooler clearance notwithstanding)?

sure no probs fitting fans up top or bottom, can fit regular 25mm just fine

This is the airflow scheme I came up with (I got lazy and used models from GrabCAD).

Four identical case fans to ensure PWM splitter functionality.

Two 120mm on top as (mostly) dedicated GPU intake
One 120mm on right side case panel, dedicated CPU/mobo intake
One 120mm as case outtake, mounted outside to reduce air pockets, stamped fan grille removed for noise reduction.
PSU 120mm as additional outtake




Assuming the PWM splitter has all four case fans working at approx same RPM and PSU is outputting a little bit at all times, I'm having a strong positive pressure, but thanks to the top-down CPU cooler and most likely a GPU cooler that mixes the air up in the case a lot, I should not end up with too much problems because of positive pressure. I'm also liking the fact I have dedicated intake for both high-power parts. I don't think it's gonna get much better than this, in a case this size/form.
