Okay guys I am having a serious issue. I need and am trying to build a MATX build for my office. The issue is where the case has to go (on a shelf thing on top of my desk) I can not have a tall case. I need a long and short case, the shorter the better.

So I guess I am spoiled I have always liked and used huge cases with plenty of rad space. Now I look at all these MATX cases, and builds and these guys got 2 240s running 2 980tis and a highly overclocked 5960x and I am just not buying it. I think those rigs are made to "Look Pretty" not cool anything lol. This is especially magnified by the fact that these cases and pretty builds (which I plan on making a show rig not hating on them at all) never state temps and when asked they still dont say anything. I want a "Show Rig" however I want one that does more than looks good lol, it is going to be used for real work and gaming.

If I am wrong (and I seriously hope I am as I do not know what to do case wise at this point) please show me.

So what I want, is some temp examples from you smile.gif of a 5820k, 5830k or 5960x overclocked to around 4.5ghz and crossfire or SLIed flagships. I will be using a 5820k at 4.5ghz, and crossfired 290s and I do not feel that dual 240s or a 240 and 360 will be enough.

I have seen a few threads in my search, and they are all showing me I am correct. However I do not know there fans speeds, and alot of them are using not so great rads. So as far as fan speed, I have corsair sp 120s (12 of them) in my main rig and that noise is acceptable to me. I think they are a little louder than GTs at 1500 so around that would be good.

Now I would like you to post either way, however I do want to just say right off the bat, CPU temps in the 80s is not acceptable to me nor is GPUs in the 70s. I need the CPU temps to be no higher than 70 while benching, and GPU temps in the low 50s tops. If that simply isn't possible in these cases, then I will have to figure something else out.

I am open for case suggestions if you know of one that is longer than it is tall (alot longer). Standard layout (the window needs to be on the left side when looking from the front, is what I mean) and MATX. to give you an Idea the Cases I am currently considering (if the temps are with in my liking) is a extended Parvum or a Hexgear.

Also due to my cases that will work, please do not give results from 60mm rads as neither of those cases support that, 40mm tops.


Thanks in advance very much smile.gif.
