Corsair SF 600
EVGA 1060 Gaming 6GB
Pure rock slim Cooler

I luck experience so it was very time consuming! Parts worth mentioning during the build: 1) It is absolutely necessary to disassembly at apart from the side panels at least the bottom part of the case, otherwise you must be a magician in order to plug in the cables. 2) EVGA is 172mm so I was able to fit it in very easy without having to remove the top case for the HDD, but now having the gpu and a fan there is no way a 3.5HDD would fit 3) I used the back panel fan as intake and the upper fan as exhaust 4) Win 10 installations on M.2 was very easy, I didnt change anything on bios, just booted from usb and clicking next next next! 5) I dont know yet about temps, we ll see!

You looked at my setup right? wink.gif
Good choices wink.gif

Very nice, how did you manage to get a hold of a 8700k?

Actually I would like to thank especially harv3y and rfarmer for helping me 2-3 months ago deciding what parts to use. And yes harv3y I followed your course concerning psu and cooling! In Greece there is only one store that brought a bunch of 8700k's and I was lucky enough to acquire one, but you know pricing in Europe.... At the moment you cannot find it anywhere in my country.
Next project is to put a handle on top of the case. I hope by tomorrow it will be done!

ps. cable management.. everything is "hidden" around the psu!! except the upper fan cable. It must pass above the gpu... any ideas?
post #744 of 829
There is a little room between the GPU and the motherboard, I pulled some fan cable through there as well.


PS: is your back fan intake? I would make it exhaust because this would significantly heat up your inside especially if you overclock your CPU.
This would make it harder on your GPU having to deal with warm air.
I have a 7700 non-overclock CPU and I blow my heat from CPU right out the back and my GPU takes in fresh air from the top.

At the moment the back fan is an intake then the cpu fan pulls air from the radiator to the psu exhausting air at the bottom. The upper fan is used as an exhaust fan.
So, If I make the back fan an exhaust wouldn't be worst for the cpu as it doesn't take fresh air? Or I should also reverse the cpu fan to pull the air forward the back fan? I know I must firstly observe my temps!
ps. thanks for the cable tip

I would also suggest the rear exhaust like harv3y said. Also you have your top set as exhaust with the GPU sitting right below it trying to intake air, this is making it very difficult for your GPU to get fresh air. Try the top as intake.

rfarmer is right. Switch top fan to intake instead - otherwise GPU and top fan is competing for air.
I opened up my PSU and flipped the fan so that PSU intakes air, instead of exausting. This made flipping rear fan to exaust really easy. So air goes PSU>CPU Cooler>Rear Fan.



I have changed this build a bit now - cut a hole in middle plate and mounted PSU to it. And re-did the cables. Made them bit shorter and sleeved them.
Also I only have 1 fan at the top, in front side. I added the hard drive tray on the back side and mounted 2x 2.5" drives. So in total I have 4x2.5" drives in it.

There will be more changes soon, I will post some pictures then.

Well... a 160mm psu works with a d15 cooler.

can noctua nh-u14s fits in the Metis plus with the fan above low profile ram ? (not flush against the motherboard since there will be no clearance to lower it)

I was the one who mentioned this, but anyway.

Not all PSU's will spin when under load, this is not a solution for anyone, he chose a PSU that won't spin under load meaning this isn't something he can do.
And he probably won't want to void his warranty iether.
For anyone trying this, make sure you put a dust filter on your PSU, sucking in air from the bottom is dust guaranteed.
