I´m a new member inside that community and my school english is not the best, im sorry for that...
as you might guessed i want to build a "new" PC in the Raikintek Metis Case.
I have a few questions about my planned build and i thought THIS is the right place to ask ^^
So to begin, here are my planned parts i want to use:
CPU: i7 4790k
GPU: GTX 680 or HD 7950
CPU COOLER: Noctua NH-D14 (if the temps get to high, im switching to the Arctic Cooler Liquid 120)
MAINBOARD: @ Advokatrix you stole my motherboard ;D... i was planning to use a MSI Z97I AC Gaming (rare stuff in germany) but im switching to the Gigabyte Z97N Gaming if i get one
PSU: Corsair SF600 SFX PSU
RAM: 16GB Corsair XMS3
Storage: 64GB Sandisk SSD
I want to do a top panel case mod, by cutting two 120mm holes for fans that should intake air from the outside.
If you know the best way to do so, please tell me, my plan was to use a 120mm hole saw
Beside stuffing all these parts inside that case im worried about temps inside the PC, my guess is, by mounting fans on the top the GPU is going to be fine... My worry is the i7 4790k.
In my current setup, which is trimmed to be silent, the temps are about 50°C when IDLE and about 80°C under load, i have 3 fans installed on the CPU Cooler taking the hot air out of the case and i want to the same inside the Metis.
My guess is that the temps will stay the same, in my case (Bitfenix Prodigy M) i have about zero airflow because the fans are too "loud".
Oh and i want the new build to be as quiet as my old one... my guess is that this is going to be hard, currently im working with Speedfan to make my System Semi-Passive.
When my system is in IDLE it isn´t audible because every moving part is shut off... When im putting load on the components, the fans kick in to keep the temps under 80°C, my plan is to do so too in the Metis. The PSU is a Semi-Passive one and the CPU should handle it just fine when IDLE with the Noctua NH-D14 installed, i´m going to flash the GPU again to make it silent.
Have I missplanned anything or do you have any guesses about that build?
I´ve read nearly every post in this forum and my guess is that it will work...
Keep the good builds up
and thanks to anyone who might help me.
