Build me a silent gaming PC

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am looking to buy a gaming PC. my budget is around 1300$ CAD. I'm from Canada so I will be buying only from ncix.com and newegg.ca

What I want:

- Silent case
- AMD video card
- 500GB SSD ( and external storage 500GB is enough )
- 16 GB RAM

Thanks.

My recommendation:

Delidded i7 8700k or i7-7700k at 1.35V or lower
Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3 , Thermalright Macho Rev B , or similar cooler
ASUS / Asrock /Gigabyte motherboard with fan controls
---> for Z370 I think Asrock Fatal1ty K6 or Taichi is a good bet along with Asus Z370-A , ROG boards, STRIX E/F/G and Gigabyte Gaming 5/7 (poor value on the 7)
---> ASUS ROG boards & Z270-A & STRIX E/F/G , Gigabyte Z270 Gaming 5/7 (poor value) , or Asrock Z270 Taichi for i7-7700k
Fractal Design Define R5 with middle cage removed --- quiet case
140mm Be Quiet Silent Wings 3 x3 (2 front intake, 1 bottom intake)
Fractal design GP-14 (included with case in rear)
Seasonic Focus Plus PSU --- eco mode is quiet
SSD --- hard drives are noisy
GPU: MSI GAMING x / ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 6GB undervolted and with tweaked fan profile to drop it below 120W http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=69330

16gb of memory is the way to go.

For the motherboard I was thinking this: https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130985

It seems to have good reviews

Cool thanks I'm taking a look right now. Is the i7 really much better than the i5?
